Question about Heating & Cooling
Boiler is periodically going out on error 3 (flue temp sensor/ pressure switch) A tech recently replaced the pressure switch about 6 months ago.I feel he may have not diagnosed the problem correctly because the error code continued every month or so. I cant recreate the trip while Im there. I put it thru its paces running it in high fire and low fire with no avail.. Any suggestions? not one to be a parts changer

You have a problem that the installer does not know how to fix so they are just stringing you along hoping that you will give up and find some one else or forget about it..
You need to tell them to
1. fix the boiler correctly
2.take it back out and give you a new one at their expense
3. or tell them you will call another comapny to fix it and will give the bill to them to pay.
You did not get what you have paid for... do not pay them any money to come out and troubleshoot the boiler.
The boiler should work as the instructions say or someone did something wrong...
Sometimes it is best to call the boiler company and talk directly to their Tech. Support people.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!

Testimonial: "offerd good advice"
Per the User's Operating Instructions you want to check the condensate drain. Make sure it is free and clear. Also check the ingnitor, ensure there is no debris or buildup that could prevent it from firing properly.
Also, here are the Installation and Service Instructions that might be of help to you.
Without being onsite with toolbox in hand, I hope this information is very helpful to you. :-)

Does the water pressure before the heater is strong? if so then there is a problem with the entrance valve.There might be some object that blocks the entrance of water or the valve itself is not working properly.
