    SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!

    My Burnham Led V boiler with a Honeywell control locks out about every three to four hours. If I reset it, it again will go about 3-4 hours before it locks out again. I have had the local technician work on it numerous times. He has replaced every component 2-3 times, with not good results. The furnace is only 4 years old. The problem seems much worse when the temperture gets below zero, but now is happening even with above zero temperatures. It is driving me crazy. I have to get up 2-3 time per night to reset, and can not travel out of town without some checking the house day and night every 3-4 hours. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!

I'm sorry to hear! On mine, another model of Burnham , there's a grey box (approx 4" high by 5" wide) on the front of the boiler. This cover slides off and the control settings are underneath. My manual says low limit must be 20 degrees below high limit else they will lock out each other. I find this to be the case when a maintenance man's "tuned" the settings. My manual also says to set the differential knob to 25 degrees. There are some manuals on the burnham.com site along with their phone number.

I just moved into a house that has a Burnham furnace with a Honeywell R8184G1286 attached to it. The water temp is set @ 190 which is way to hot for us. Is there any way that I can turn the thermostat...


That is the burner primary control, it is controlled by a thermostat somewhere else, could be on the boiler or water heater it will be sensing water temp, and have a probe sensing the water. It may need to be turned back up in the winter, if its heating the house as well.

If you are leaving for SUMMER, definitely do not need to set at 65, that would be tremendous waste of energy. Humidistat in summer should be off. I wonder if he thought you would be gone during winter.

When firing the lochinvar knight boiler it went to "man reset high limit" on computer and says LOCK OUT !?!? is it air locked? the pump in on the supply side instead of the return side. does that make a...


This kind of Manual High Limit issue can most likely be caused by two things :

1) If it's a Knight XL (399MBH and up), it's equiped with a manual high limit with is located in front of the boiler, behind the front panel just under the display bezzel. It has to be adjusted and reset (with the manual reset button on the control display).

2) If your unit is NOT equipped with that kind of Manuel High Limit, this message means that there was a low voltage wire that was shorted to the ground. Either the flow switch or the thermostat wire. The 24v fuse located on the main control board burned to protect the components. Lucky, Lochinvar provide replacements in the small plastic bag attached to the connection board.

Hope this help. Even if i'm late.

Riello oil burner RDB with red plastic cover at the front wont ignite. I've tried bleeding the valve. The motor seems to make an electrical humming noise for about 12 secs, then the system attempts to...


The motor should spin when the boiler is switched on. One end of the motor spins the fan the other end works the pump. The control box then starts the transformer that starts a spark. The control box then opens up the oil. The boiler should then light if any of the above or the boiler does not light, the boiler will go to lockout.
From what you say the motor is not spinning, thus it could be the motor or more like the pump.

YOU SHOULD NOT PLAY WITHE THE PUMP

If the wrong setting is made it could 1 burn out the back of your boiler 2 go to soot and the boilers in an hour would be filled up and become a fire risk. 3 not start at all if the setting is too low it is a fine line to get it to work and needs the right tools.

What tempratues should be set on a honywell 4 cycle thermost during the summer months


As a general rule set your t.sat 20 degrees below outside temp. Leave at this setting 30-45 minutes. Move down until comfortable no lower than 10 degrees below outside for 30-45 minutes. Unit should cycle normally. If it runs continuously then raise the t.stat 3 or 4 degrees up. The national average is 75-78. I usually keep mine set at 80 during the day here in Georgia and 74-78 at night...

My becket honeywell r7184p oil burner monitor is not resetting it keeps blinking a fast green. What should i be looking for?


my Beckett oil burner with a honeywell R7184P just did the same thing. Quit burning, blinks for half a second. The burner says press reset once, if it does not reset then call a local serviceman. It is cold here in Alaska, you betcha', and my oil must have jelled up. It happened once, but pressing reset solved my problem, two days later it stopped again. I applied heat (hair dryer) to my supply line, added an anti-jelling solution to my tank. Here is what I found.

"The Honeywell R7184P-1080 (interrupted control—transformer shuts down 10 seconds after flame is established) is now the standard control used on all Beckett oil burners along with the new “Cleancut” pump. The Honeywell control has both a 15 second pre-purge and a 15 second post purge feature, as well as internal self-checking of the control itself. The control has 15 second lockout timing plus a 10 second ignition carry over period. After 3 lockouts during the same call for heat, the control goes into restricted lockout., A restricted lockout condition may be reset by holding the reset button down for 30 seconds until the LED flashes twice. At any time the control is powered, the reset button may be held for 30 seconds to reset the lockout counter. There are several new “Service Features” with the R7184P control that make for easier servicing."

You have to press the reset button for thirty seconds. I don't know how cold it it there, or what number oil you guys are burning, but what I do know is that you guys have been pressing your reset button more than once.

This worked for me. Good luck.
