Go back to whomever did the annual check-up, and get them to explain what they did, as you are not satisfied with the service. IF there was an adjustment done, they should have told you what was observed and done. IS this gas fired, propane, Fuel Oil ? depending on the fuel, it can be a variety of things that go wrong to give the symptoms you have described. I would start with the 'inspection' part and go from there.

SOURCE: Furnace runs about 1 minute, then total shutdown

that sensor as you call it is a thermacouple it produces a small current which lets the gas valve know it is ok to open . if the pilot is not clean and correct it will not let main valve open. if your pilot is good then you have bad gas valve. you may have low gas pressure this can also do what you are describing

SOURCE: carrier super saver furnace keeps going on and off

Sounds like the flame sensor is dirty or bad. This sits in the burner flame when the burners are running. This usually has a single white wire connected to the back of it.

SOURCE: ideal response 120 seems to fire up but burner

If this an older style boiler remove thermostatwires
at boiler terminal board and put jumper between R and W, if boiler starts you have bad thermostat.

If it does not come on then it appers that you have
a problem with the spark ignition or glow coil is
bad

I have a hot water boiler with 3 zone valves and 2 circulation pumps. I see no relays wired to pumps. Pumps run constantly


Sounds like a lot of unknowns from your article. Here are some basic checks

- if they are the honeywell zone valves and you try to open them and get resistance than 9/10 times the t-stat is not calling for heat and the valve should be closed
-if stat is calling and wants heat zone valve lever should be free of resistance when moving it
- 15-20 psi is a little high but could be normal based on the size of your place and the temperature you are reading these pressures at
-with the pumps always running seems to me that the pumps are hard wired to a constant electrical source, if you want optimal control install a taco zone controller

Tip

Combi Boilers Waste Energy


Combination boilers are called just that because they combine your hot water production and your space heating together with one boiler. The problem lies in the way that they produce hot water. To make the water hot, these boilers have a coil inside the chamber that the water for the space heating is held. The heat is transferred through the copper coil wall from the one water to the other.

The heat transfer of the efficiency of the transfer is not the problem. The problem is that you have to keep the boiler hot all of the time to make sure that you will have heat to make the water hot when you need it. To compound the problem you will find that boilers are typically very poorly insulated. The amount of heat that you will lose because of this poor insulation is unbelievable.

You have or are thinking about buying a Combi Boiler. Read this first because I will explain to you why you either have or are going to make a very big mistake.

Rather than go with this method of water heating, set up your boiler with a separate zone for an indirect water heater. Indirect hot water heaters transfer heat just as effectively, and they are usually very well insulated. The temperature drop in these indirect tanks is typically less than 1 degree F per hour. That’s not very much!

Keep in mind that even though this setup may cost you a bit more up front, that in the long run you will be saving more everyday. With the price of heating fuels going up daily you can bet that the indirect tank will pay for its self in a very short period of time.

I have an ariston 20/24 mffi combi pressure rises when switched to central heating but pressure ok when asking for hot water ? expansion vessel ?

Baxi duo-tec boiler - when water comes on flame roars up. When i put the heating on the flames roar for 5 minutes then die down.


is the boiler a combi if so have you checked the pressure. it needs to be at 1.5 bar 2 bar at the most . also check that the heat the boiler is producing is completeing the circuit on the heating if you have access to the pipe work there should be 2 or 3 22mm copper pipes. now turn the heating on and check which one is getting warm. the one that is is your flow and in about 2 to 3 min there should be one more pipe getting hot let me no if this is the case

Hi,

Are you getting Hot water and Heating?

The reason i ask is because I don't think you have a problem.

On this boiler it has a 'pump over run' thermostat incorporated into it, this ensures heat escapes from the boiler by using the pump to cool it down.

If you are getting hot water and heating, leave it well alone, if you reset the boiler this can have adverse effects on the boiler and evenually cause malfunction.

However, if you find that you are not getting Hot Water or Heating, then the most common fault on this boiler is the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) it is the 'brain' of the boiler and the most common fault on this make. (£160 + vat)

I hope this helps,

Steve

Glow worm combi boiler


check the pilot line for an obstruction. check the millivolt generator that's supposed to keep the pilot valve open. check for a high limit control being bad.
