If it gets through purge and unit begins to ignite, and then goes off it may likely need to have the flame sense rod cleaned.

Questions about lochinvar boiler

many boilers have an anti-scald device installed on top... Look for a handle that doesn't turn, Loosen the screw on the handle then pull it out until it can turn. Turn it to full open or to a setting that will prevent scalding as to your preference. I'm not sure you have such a device nor who manufactured it or how it is designed, so if you see something there you may have to figure it out for yourself.

Water to hot for gas boiler boiler gos off

It could be dyslexia, but I think you want to know what may be wrong with your boiler in this case!
This is a VERY old design. The diaphragm is on the water section, this operates a switch to turn ON the pump, and a further device causes the diverter valve to divert boiler water from CH duty to HW duty.
From your description it appears that the boiler is shutting down on internal boiler water temperature (too high), your 'briefly too hot' HW symptom may be caused either by the boiler side of the secondary heat exchanger being blocked/caked in sludge, OR the DHW side of it being scaled. Either way a new or replacement (descaled) secondary heat exchanger MAY inprove things. It's not easy on these old clunk-pots, and EVERY disturbed seal will subsequently leak, so get a good supply of o-rings and fibre seals before you start ("you" being the competant fitter you employ)

Lochinvar The boiler is purging, ignitor is getting hot, but

This could be something as simple as a gas valve turned off. First check all the gas valves, (one inside the heater, one outside and one at the source.) Also if this is LP gas make sure that you have enough gas. It takes at least 30% in the tank before the heater will fire. In many places their may be an earthquake valve. If this fails it will shut the gas down to the heater. Their are many reasons the heater won't fire and the fellow who told you to change the board probally works for Lochinvar. You might want to have a repairman look at the heater first before you spend that money. Good luck.

Is this a two element 220 Volt heater? Do you know how old the elements are?

I have a feeling your elements need to be replaced.

What are your thoughts on my remarks?
