Thanks all I will figure out what I will do,have fire star wifi so I can see water temp,I could even put a light inside or heat tape and I'm sure that it's so insulated it would be fine,don't think I wouldn't  drain do to rusting up inside think that's a no no?

Heat will remain on,I was thinking of putting heat tape on the return line and leave circulator pump on,we get cold here but not to cold,like further north.have friends to look after farm so if I had to fire it up n let it go out it would take a long time to drop below.

Boiler man your lots of help but if door switch isn't working I don't think they will show open many things but most likely it's simple thing like I told him it most be a blockage somewhere inlet or in outlet

That enclosure gets that hot?? Don't think mine does,will check that also,I really think you have something really going on with your boiler if that's hot? The rubber bots are for heat on the elbows but not that hot.The wiring in there so it shouldn't be that hot?

Today boiler wasn't hitting temps like it should,ran for way more hrs of burn time not getting up to good temps,burnt the whole chamber in 12hrs 8* this am but up to 27* most of day.Would get to mid range and back n forth. worked late just got home looking things over opened box to solenoids and one of the 2 solenoids on bottom tube wasn't opening !!great have spares and changed it out and right back to 1200* temps i feel great now was thinking the wood that i just got into was higher moisture but not.Thats the second one in my 4th yr of running,not bad $25 part,i keep 2 on hand.

The dealer told me the gap in the firebrick under charge tube is like a 1" mine was at least 1.5,the grate is still working perfectly only a pint n half maybe in reaction chamber even in this very cold run this week with lots of wood going in it.

Really I modified it a little from pic it goes under charge tube all I did was trim n bend side ears to fit under tube as not to lift it n some clearance from tube. There are many things can cause bad temps I had a wire all of a sudden off of a solenoids or that elbow half clogged,pm with your phone number I you want n I will call u. The grate has been in over a week n not one bad burn and nothing but a pint of ash in reaction chamber.also with theses outside temps I've been throwing a little bit of wood in the door!
