Question about Heating & Cooling

My boiler has stopped working. It is less than 6 months old. I need to establish what the problem is, i.e. gas supply or the unit itself before I call anyone out

    Hi I need to confirm those details first. But I didn't mention the boiler is less than 6 months old. It is gas and I have not done anything out of the ordinary to make it stop working. I have checked with the gas company and they advised for me to check my metre when I get home just to make sure it is not a supply problem.

Without a brand name and model number it's much to hard and lengthy to even start. What do you use for fuel? Are you out? Have you replaced the batteries in the thermostat? Have you checked to see if the Emergency Switch is on as well as the circuit breaker?

My furnace will not ignite

If it has a glowing igniter, that must mean it is a Gas furnace?-- LP or Natural Gas?-- We need to establish a few things like:
1.) Is there a good supply of Gas?
2.). When the Igniter starts to glow, can you hear a gas valve click'?- and then is there a small flow of Pilot gas? (over the area where the burners will need to flow gas-- so the gas in the burner tubes can be ignited safely.)
3.) There is a circuit somewhere in there, that detects that you have established FLAME-- (Usually a 'flame rod' that allows the main gas valve to open.) Can you see the 'pilot flame' touching that rod? A very small electric current is actually conducted thru the flame, -- completing the circuit that allows the safety circuit to go to the next step, before it opens the main gas valve.)
These things have to exist, before the safety circuitry allows the main gas valve to open.
Tell us more, what you observe, as you try to start it again.

How can I adjust the flame?

Why do you feel flame needs adjusting?

Assuming this is a furnace or boiler, fueled by oil or gas. Any adjustments to flame should be done in conjuction with combustion and smoke testing. I know many "old school" techs who adjust by sight. Effective many times with old equipment, but not with newer high precision units.

All that being said, this is an adjustment that should be made by a heating professional.

Turn the boiler off. Connect a garden hose to the drain bib. Shut the water supply valve off.
Open the drain bib and drain boiler. Close drain bib and open supply valve.
When boiler is full, go to the farthest faucet and open the hot water and let run.
Go back to supply valve and turn off and on a couple of times rapidly this will "bounce" sediment loose.
Repeat above twice.

I have a 250SX aquastar Bosch tankless hot water heater . It keeps going out on EC code; whats wrong? Also I've been running the unit for about a 9 months without hooking up the condensate dain line.

The 250 MUST have the condensate line connected. EC comes from gas supply problems and CO2 levels not being adjusted. LP units require 3/4" smooth gas pipe or 1" corrugated pipe minimum size. The LP regulator needs to be turned up to about 13 inches of water column and with all the gas appliances on, measure no less than 11 inches of water column. The CO2 levels must be measured by a qualified gas technician with a calibrated (with in 6 months) CO2 analyzer.

My Readyheater 30-55,000 btu heater runs for 3 min then stops? it is 3 years old, thank you Bobby

This unit has a hydraulic bulb and closed sytem to establish when the unit is hot. If the flame goes out and the heat stops the gas will automatically turn off because the pressure drops on the protection device. Same reason you have to hold a button (the fuel flow) to start the unit. You need a new one. should be able to supply it. Let me know how this works out.

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.

Gas boiler cuts out after about 60 seconds

It may be fixable but any work done on any gas appliance must be done by a properly qualified person and in the UK must be Gas Safe registered. I am not nor do I claim to be so registered, this is for information only.

Either there is insulation missing or misplaced is my first thought. Then if that's not it how is it vented and if there is a leak on the "Hot Gas" from the combustion (assuming you have gas not electric and if electric believe Id be looking at the wiring for bad connections creating excessive heat or wrong type wire not approved for high heat installation).

If this helps you please rate me as high as you can thank you you for using fixya.
