Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

1 Answer

One zone not working; another is partly working

The heating system uses hot water, the boiler uses oil. I have 4 zones.

Problem 1. On one zone, which happens to be the 2nd flr, the baseboards are cold even when the thermostat is set at 70. In the boiler room, there are 4 zone valves; the pipe on one of the zone valves is not as hot as all the other 3.

Problem 2. In the first floor, there are two zones with seven baseboards. Three of the baseboards used to work but now remain cold.

I would appreciate if you could tell me what are casing the problems.

Thank you.

Why the hot water temperature couldn't reach the set temperature (130 degree) in Amtrol WHS80Z indirect water heater?


I have a couple of thoughts. You may have air in the boiler water circuit at the loop that feeds the tank. You'll have to find the vent in the loop to get it out. Second, the automatic valve that opens for hot water may not be opening fully. Have you felt both the boiler water lines that go in and out of the tank? If the water going in is hot and the line out is very cold you have very little boiler water going through the loop. Make sure the isolation valves on the loop are open. Is your boiler full of water? If the boiler loop lines are hot going in and coming out, the tank is full of rust or debris and no water can get to the fins on the internal tubing to pick up heat. If that's the case there is no repair and its time to get a new tank. Hope this helps good luck.

Solid fuel stove linked to oilsystem with two zone


Put a temperature operated control (aquastat) on the piping of the wood stove so that if it is on, it will interupt the circuit wired to the oil burner at the X&X terminals of the boiler control.As the wood stove cools off, it will close the connection allowing the oil system to fire.

Two problems, one is a bad thermostat on zone 2. The second is the boiler. The inducer fan energizes causing a pressure switch to engage. This pressure switch energizes the ignitor. If the ignitor does not get hot enough, it will cycle again all over. The cheapest route to take is to check all hoses going from fan housing to pressure switch looking for bad connections or leaks, the second thing to do is to replace your ignitor (time for it anyway).

Amtrol 41 hot water maker :not working when calling for hot water,contols are on showing temp,but tank is cold.oil fired boiler is fine,the whole system is 5 yrs old.


Hi,
The problem is probably with the circulator pump or the zone valve, which ever way your water circulating from the boiler is controled.
The water needs to be moved through the boiler and the coils in the Hot water maker to heat water. If this is not happening then no water will be heated.
Check for power and then is the pump is running or the zone valve opening.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Amtrol water heater WH-7P gets barely warm water


From what you are saying it sounds like an issue with either a circulator pump or a zone valve. It depends on what type of system you have ... if you have a circulator pump that only runs the Amtrol then that is probably bad. If you have a zone valve system then it is probably the zone valve if you still have heat for the rest of the house. If you have no space heating then it is probably the circulator pump.

Chronotherm Three thermostat vs Buderus Logamatic Computer.


The outdoor thermostat senses the the temp of the outside air, and adjust the boiler water temp according to what it knows is best. The reason that the boiler is running longer is the old boiler used to be constantly sending 180ish degree water to the baseboard, now that water may only be 140ish degrees. The idea behind this is to reduce off cycle heat loss, as the greater the temp difference between the air temp and water temp, the quicker you loss heat. The theory in boiler run time is this, the less times it starts and stops, and the long run times will give you the best efficiency. Hope this answers you questions.

Thermostat temperatures not reaching preset Energy Star settings


Well with a boiler system like you have it will cost you more money to heat your house that way than if you leave it like it is. With a boiler system it takes a lot longer to heat an area than with a furnace. The best thing you can do is find a happy medium and leave it there at all times. If you read the paper work on your new thermostats they have a set procedure which tells the thermostat if you have forced air or boiler system. Do you have baseboard or in-floor heat how many zones do you have.
