I can't find the summer switch on my furnace model FG6RA 072C-12A


there isn't a summer switch - the thermostat will switch the operation from heat/winter operation to cool/summer operation. I.E. "Cool" for Summer and "Heat" for Winter.

We needed to turn the water off at the stopcock to repair a tap and for safety we turned the boiler from all day to off. when we turned the water on again the boiler was off completely. what do we need to...


Hi the temperature control on the boiler should start the boiler as soon as you restore power to it. I don't know if you have a automatic ignition module or a standing pilot. If it is a standing pilot, make sure it is lite.You should have a temperature gauge telling you the water temp., and if it was off all day I am sure it is very cool. Do you have a drain valve on the front bottom of this boiler? If so, and you have a floor drain, turn it on as you may have gotten air in the system causing it not to fire up. If not, open all outside hose bibs/faucets and indoor faucets and let them run for awhile. If the water was drained out from the boiler to repair this tap, its off on its low pressure shut off switch. This is a safety. After bleeding any dirt or air from the system, make sure that you hear the boiler filling up with water. Once it reaches its low pressure cut off, it will fire up and start to heat the water. I don't know how large it is, but it may take some time to reach its cut out switch before it will fire again. Please keep me posted in the comment box. Please rate me on my help to you, and I thank you for this.

My boiler heating is working but hot water is not coming. i want to know how to set hot water 24 hours 7 days


As I understand your question, you have a boiler with a 'summer/winter' hookup for domestic hot water.

Your boiler should run all the time, i.e. not be shut off by you. Your boiler provides hot water for baseboard heat in your home ... possibly through several 'zones' each controlled by an individual thermostat and circulator. Yours may be a steam system. If this is the case, you have radiators not radiant baseboard heaters and no circulators.

Your summer/winter hookup provides a constant supply of domestic hot water. It does this by taking cold water from your water main and passing it through a copper coil which sits inside your boiler and then to your hot water main in your home. Since the coil sits in the hot water at the top of the boiler, it is constantly being heated. This coil may be in a deteriorated condition in your case or it may be too small for your needs.

Several years ago, I did a small upgrade to my mid 1950's era American Standard boiler. The summer winter hookup in my case was mounted on a 4 inch cast iron boiler plug. The coil was 12 feet long (folded up to a package about 1 foot long). I was very afraid when the plumber came in with what amounted to a 10 foot long pipe wrench. My fear was I would have a pile of broken cast iron at the end of the day. All is well that ends well. He got the old one out and replaced it with a coil that consisted of 20 feet of copper tubing 3/4 inch in size (the folded tubing was about 20 inches long and fit nicely into the boiler). We now have all the hot water a household consisting of one guy and three gals would need in all but the extremest of times..

I think you r answer is here ... replace your summer/winter coil with a new, bigger coil.

Something else I did. My kitchen is 60 feet (pipe wise) from the boiler. It takes a long time to get hot water there. I put in a small electric hot water heater just under the kitchen. I put a timer on it so it runs for a couple hours in the morning and a few hours in the afternoon. The hot water line from the boiler serves as the cold water input to the heater. I now enjoy the convenience of quick hot water in the kitchen with the relatively low cost of oil heated water from the boiler as a relatively small cost of electricity.

My winter settings are 160 - 200 and my summer settings are 120 - 150 which seems adequate for our needs.

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com. I hope I have been of assistance to you today.

Switch heating on, hear a click that we normally hear then boiler fires up. Then goes off after about 30 seconds. Then won't come back on, though we still hear the click. Wait a while before trying...


could be a number of things, it could be cycling on the high limit switch, (lack of water flow, or pump) this would be my guess if you are not resetting power and the unit is trying to restart. It also could be the flame sensor not proving ignition. hope this helps!

Our Baxi combi 130 HE heats the water OK but will not heat radiators. This has happened after a period of not using the radiators (ie. over the summer)


check the pressure it should be in  the green band, check the pump, inside the boiler cabinet lower right.

I have a 6 year old Halstead Ace High boiler which has many recurring problems due to a bad fitting. It was never flushed out causing the heat exchange needing to replaced TWICE through clogging and then...


Firstly your system needs a power flush to get rid of the grot, then it needs a good inhibitor to slow up the reappearance of the sludge.

Changing the boiler won't help. Any boiler will get clogged up but the halstead DHW heat exchanger is particualrly prone to getting gummed up. You can clean this out and refit without having to buy a new one. - but without a power flush it will happen again.
