I assume you are talking about a steam heating system...
There are two screws on the top of the pressuretrol...

turn the pressure screw down to the lowest pressure at which you still get heat to the farthermost radiator...make sure the vents are working...or steam does not flow to displace the air...
Then just give the differential screw enough difference so the boiler cycles on and of a bout three times and hour...when making steam...
That's all there is too it...

The 220VAC is most efficient and less costly in the long run. You should not have changed over. Got back to what was working for you in the past!

I have a honeywell PA404A pressure control switch on my home gas steam heating system. I'm having a problem with the switch turning off the system. It will only come back on if I turn the top screw all the...

This may be caused by accumulation of sludge in the steam trap (the looped tube that connects the pressuretrol unit to the boiler). the sludge restricts the pressure from reaching the diaphragm in the pressuretrol unit. So it gets a false reading. Clean or replace the tube and see if normal function resumes.

Looks as if your boiler is over firing (extended run) you probably have a faulty sensing thermostatic probe causing this the switch you are resetting is a safty pressure switch it is designed to keep the pressure from building which could cause the boiler to explode.
