Parkray room heater - seems to be burning more coal than ever before,constantly boiling the water which then has to be run off.


Solid fuel room heaters with a back boiler can have fairly complex air and damping controls. Driving older types was just as complex as driving a car, though slower, with the boiler damper, flue damper and air control.

In time manaufacturers wanted to widen the appeal of the products and began to refine the designs and make some of the functions automatic or semi-automatic.

I suggest you revisit the instruction manual and if you can't make the fire slumber, or damp it down so it sleeps for the night or close down the hot water, it is probably something inside has seized or broken.

Using excess fuel and constantly boiling the water is a sure sign too much combustion air is reaching the coals. If the coals glow brightly from the fire base excess air is entering the ash space or getting in below the fire basket. If the base is cooler and the top of the fire is hotter the air is being drawn across the fire. This is difficult to avoid if the design uses an air curtain to keep flame and soot away from the door glasses but it could mean an internal air passage needs clearing.
It could be time to take the heater apart for a thorough clean, inspection, replace gaskets and any corroded or broken parts including the clay liners.

Good luck!

How do i get even heat thru out the house with a daka wood stove


http://www.hearth.com/talk/categories/main-hearth-forums.4/
You burn wood, and smoke goes up flueway.
You're not running chimney smoke through ductwork so you have a heat exchanger.
What kind of heat exchanger?
probably air since you're running through ductwork?
How much hot air or hot water is coming off heat exchanger?
How big of a space can be heated with that amount of heat?
Is the exchanger located in optimal location?

Considerations.
One room log cabin with fireplace will not stay very warm.
One room house with big wood burning stove in center, with hot flue pipe running across the room and exiting on far wall, will get warm-hot, but will cool off fast.
Why?
Because the BTU output of firewood is much less than electric, coal, oil, or gas.
Otherwise they would have made wood-burning steam locomotives. But the locomotive boiler cannot get hot enough with wood ... the boiler needs coal to produce enough BTUs to boil water fast enough to rotate the turbine and turn the wheels.

Maybe your wood stove output should be measured.
Don't forget a huge percentage of fire heat goes straight up flueway.

I had the same problem. There's another clear rubber pipe underneath, that runs from the front right to a pump in the middle. I had to pull it off and dry it with a hairdryer before mine would light properly. Blast into the hole the pipe came off too to dry the sensor if there is one.

Boiler not working


When the fan stops working it also stops the boiler. Safety.
Check that the fan is turning and blowing air out. You can hear it turning at the top of the boiler and at the vent pipe exit.
With the electrics off, remove front cover and test the fan by moving the blades by hand. Any element of stiffness or jerking or if the fan does not turn freely - replace. These have an induction motor - no repair
Check the electrical contact wires to fan are ok. If the fan is ok check also the 2 plastic tubes to & from the air pressure unit [usually close to one side of the fan] are intact [no splits or holes and will maintain pressure and vacuum] and fully connected to their metal terminals.
Next is to examine the pcb (the electronic board behind the switches) Look for any block connections loose and any obvious signs of black marks on the board. If the latter, replace

Water dripping out of external pipe from ideal classic fxff boiler hwta is how do i fix it


Do you find that the boiler water pressure drops over time?
Then replace the pressure relief valve. You'll find it in the lower part of the boiler connected to that external pipe.
Close off the water pipes to & from the boiler and then replace
On some you can dismantle the valve and clean the scale from the inside and it works again - but not always 100%
It's either this or the fill tap/valve is not turned off fully

I have a alpha cd32 boiler,and i keep having to top the water up within the boiler,so to get hot water and heating again.i have checked for water leaks and nothing is found,however i did check the outlet...


Pressure relief valve - replace
The internal seal gets bunged up with dirt & scale and then leaks water [pressure] to that outside pipe
To avoid draining the whole system, turn off the two central heating taps on the 3/4 pipes and then operate the valve manually and / or disconnect - only a small amount of water will escape / drip to below the boiler
Replace valve and fill as before.
If you think your system needs flushing out - now is a good time
Turn off mains electricity to boiler before starting work

My old Aquastar tankless natural gas water heater used 1/2" gas line. My new Bosch 2700ES -NG says it requires no less than 3/4" inside diameter gas line. Do I have to replace all the gas supply lines...


None !!
3/4 pipe from gas meter or regulator. At low pressure there may not be enough gas flow through a smaller pipe for the boiler when on full bore.
The boiler input pipe will be 1/2" needing a reduction from 3/4 so there is some leeway.
I have about 8' of 1/2 pipe on mine [Bosch Worcester] from the reg. and it is ok.
You could use the existing 1/2 and try. No harm done if insufficient-just replace. If you have some other gas takeoff on the same line a 3/4 pipe up to that take off is most likely.

Honeywell T403A1174 suddenly doesn't appear to call for heat


some times inside the boiler on the internal pipework you will see little sensors, on the central heating piping there sometimes is a thermastic sensor on side of flow pipe with a little reset button on ? i guess with the problem you said the poiler locked out and the pipe work overheated ? this is a safety feature on some boilers not, all and easerly reset via this button ?

Parkray Cumbria efficiency problem


Some circulation pumps have a 3 phase mixing valve (cold,warm,hot) to regulate the water pressure in the building; no way to know unless you trace the plumbing. Basically, the hot water temperature could be lost because the circ-pump is cooling it with the cold water supplied to it. This is used to balance the pressure (aka Pressure Balancing Circ-Pump), so heater is really working overtime to heat the water. If the pump has two in and one out that's more than likely your problem; but you should consult a "old-school" plumber in your area.
