SOURCE: Compressor is showing ground fault

O.K. a breaker tripping.....it is hard to say cuz your facts are brief.does the breaker trip immediately when you try to reset the breaker? if so...the contractor's employee probably got the 2 "line" legs going to the same side of he disconnect. OR the high volt wire may have short to ground.if the existing wire is xtreamly old, the sheathing can crack and ground out tripping the breaker, quite possibly water may be in the conduit "finding" a crack and shorting out( the reason i bring this up is because a plumber was there.)

breakers often go bad over time....trip and reset the breaker at your panel. it should feel hard to move.there is a spring in there that has to be tight.if it doesn't make a good snap typr action.replace the breaker.they are cheaper than a new machine and they just go bad over time.

you'll have to get another qualified tech to check it out.i would try isolating the high volt circuit and go from there.

good luck.BEWARE OF THE SALESMAN IN TECH CLOTHING.make sure he is old, has dirty nails /uniform.that is a good indicator of a real tech.he may even be slobby too.

Gas Condensing Boiler High Efficiency Heating



Ultra high efficiency boilers have become one of the best buys in home heating. These high efficiency boilers have changed dramatically from the first pulse boilers that I had the privilege of installing twenty years ago. Today’s condensing boilers are much more reliable and will not shake and rattle the windows of your house like those old beasts did.

If you are looking to purchase or install a new boiler for your new or existing heating system then you need to look a condensing boiler to heat your home with. In the past twenty years the condensing gas boiler has evolved to be a reliable, very efficient way to heat your home.

Radiant heating systems with the right design feature can easily heat your home at temperatures that use just warm water. At these temperatures the water is pulling the exhaust temperature of the boiler to very low points. This gives you extremely efficient boiler operation.
The boilers of today are made to operate continually at temperatures of 100F or less. At these temperatures it is not uncommon to have the combustion analyzer give me readings of 98-99 % efficiency. To get these types of readings and still heat your home the heating system has to be designed to work at these temperatures.

The right condensing gas boiler coupled with the right heat transfer system to get the heat into your home the right way will give you the most efficient heating system possible with today’s technologies.

Do a bit of research and find a heating contractor that knows exactly how to install a condensing boiler with a radiant heating system properly. For your radiant heating system to perform well at these temperatures, your boiler will need to be installed in exactly the right way. There is not a lot of room for error when designing very high efficiency heating systems. To wring every BTU of heat out of the fuel that is being burnt means that you are also on the ragged edge of supplying just enough heat to the building to over come the heat loss of the building at any given time.

Why does my water no come on in the morning when the programmer is asking it too and does in the evening.


Check the time clock is accurate.
If this is a condenser boiler [it has two water pipes to the outside] check that the pipe from the condenser is not blocked with ice, if so heat with a heat drier

Installed a year-and-a-half ago, problems so far: thermostat replaced on hot water tank within one month of installation, one pump replaced, leaking plug in the front of boiler with Dunkirk rep never


Its probably time for small claims court and a new company to install good equipment. Have a couple different companies/contractors give an estimate and possibly expert advice/witness you would then be able to use in court so you can get reimbursed from a bad company. Hope it all works out.

Broken heat exchange in boiler leaking hot water onto pilot light


Maang, You are a year older than me, so lets see if I can point you in the right direction.(1) If you have access to the internet you should be able to find a manual for an "Ideal Classic Boiler".(I just did) but you'll need to print it out - 40 pages. (2) It is 12 years old and is past it's half life. You might consider a whole replacement boiler - installed by a professional contractor rather than replacing a cracked section of the heat exchanger. Any equipment is only as good as the installation and proper setup when it is new. (3) You should NOT be smelling any gas in the house, period - unless you have a leak. You may be smelling carbon dioxide which is from burning fossil fuels - escaping from the crack in the heat exchanger. (4) What happened to the "Warranty" ?. Before you blow yourself up, Don't try to light the pilot anymore. Call a legitimate contractor.

Have an oil fired boiler for baseboard heat and it also has a tankless heater for domestic hot water. No heat being called for only getting hot water for use. Boiler goes to 210 degrees before it knocks...


These boilers usually have multiple controls. The control that would take it out of the circuit at 210 degrees is a safety.

You should definitely have a professional take a look at this unit before you continue using it.
