    Same problem here -- leaks from the secondary heat exchanger. Had all 4 o-rings replaced and 6 weeks alter it's started again. Can't decide whether to live with it or not. I found the problem is much worse if you have the eco setting selected as the water gets too cold when not in use.


    Can any fix for this ever work for more than a few weeks?

Yes, this is a common problem on the domi compact. unfortunately ferroli accept no responsibility if not in warranty period! can be a costly repair..

Had this before on this model, ignore the fault codes provided you have checked possible causes given in manual. it is either the thermistor is too close to the heat exchanger on the top left, move it further down the pipe and the fault normally stops. it is the thermistor not overheat sensor as that would induce a fault code. if the fault goes away when the cover is off it is the ignitor lead, sounds strange but electrical leakage is occurring to earth due to the high voltage leaks onto the case,

2005 ford taurus leaking antifreeze but doesn't overheat and it leaks out the passenger side of the car in the front


if its leaking inside the car its the radiator or heat exchanger for the climate control where the hot air comes from. will get worse and it will eventually over heat the engine.
quick cheap fix is to disconnect the two pipes in the engine bay that go to the heat exchanger at the the fire wall in the engine compartment. you will have to join them together so that everything on the engine still works. they are usually 20mm or 3/4". you can use a bit of copper pipe that size and the hose clamps.

Disconnected condensation drain on hot water heater.


Tankless or hybrid water heater?

Tankless gas must have special fitting between water heater and vent that has a condensate line fitting. Hot toxic vent gasses traveling up vent pipe cause acidic water vapor to form inside vent pipe that drips back down vent and drips onto heat exchanger and other parts eventually burning hole through expensive metal alloy heat exchanger, rendering tankless computer water heater useless after electric circuitry gets wet and shorts out.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html#vent

Hybrid or heat pump type computer water heaters must have condensate drain connected to catch pan located just above storage tank and below compressor. Condensation can form on condenser coils and drip into catch pan where there is primary and secondary drain

Condinsate leaking on furnace blower


Drain tube is most likely stopped up on the heat/cooling exchanger and running over. Locate the drain and clean it out and your problem should be solved.

How do i reseat the prv on a ferroli f24b boiler?


Hi, any pressure relief valves i have ever worked on, can't be reset. They are there to release water pressure that builds to high. If they continue to leak if you have discharged it, you can tap on it to see if you can get it to seal, or just replace it if it continues to run or drip water.
Sincerely,

Coolant leaking into car from passenger side


Coolant passes through the heat exchanger below the dashboard heating the interior air from the engine heat. The heat exchanger or its pipe is leak somehow.
A temporary measure is to change the heat/cool knob to cold position. This disconnects the radiator.
Note: If the leak is before the valve then it will not stop leaking.
Also if you use the heater then You need to get the pipe repaired.

Leaking from secondary heat exchanger


Hi cgcol

I just had the same problem with the same boiler and was recommended to get in touch with a company called Wolseley uk. http://www.wolseley.co.uk/servlet/reality/rscp/IN.BRADETFRMBP1?app=centers&ses=99999|47543&website=www.wolseley.co.uk
link is to their website branch locator. You need to click on parts center on the left hand side of your screen under branch locator, then put your post code in as easy as 123. The parts you need are o rings. They come as a set, their part number for the set is 459382 FROLI 39817620 ORING SET as shown on my invoice. Only cost £7.19 + VAT. Plus bought 798007 REGIN REGZ40 SILICONE GREASE 50G cost £5.47 + VAT (smallest size they do). This is to lube Orings before fitting and pushing pipes together. Make sure you have turned all stop taps off that are under the boiler and drained rads.
Hope this has been a help!

GMPN goodman furnace: Water leaks from the base.


Check the drain tubes inside the furnace. There may be a loose connection or a split tube.
The unit could also leak from the gasket between the secondary heat exchanger and the vent fan housing. The secondary heat exchanger ould also be leaking or cracked.
Hope this helps.
