Yes exactly correct!

I posted in the plumbing area originally because when I looked at the Mahoning posts, I was the last to post in 2018. I figured I would get visibility.

Thanks again, day 2 with new T&P valve all working smooth!

mlappin - thank you for the re-direct! You are correct the Mahoning furnace is not a pressurized furnace for the heat, but I do have a secondary loop for heating my potable (pre - water heater).

 I replaced the T&P valve and all is working well, the furnace has reached the operating temp and no water being dumped via the new T&P valve.

Earlier when mlappin was commenting I was out at the furnace trying to replace the T&P valve and was a little confused. I stopped and returned inside and read the mlappin comment and was no longer confused. I shut the potable water off to the furnace and replaced the defective T&P valve.

Thanks mlappin for bringing clarity!

Mahoning / Overheating issue/question
« on: March 15, 2021, 10:05:14 AM »
My OW Furnace appeared to be overheating so I took a closer look. Noticed my T&P valve stuck open (defective?) and water a little more than trickling out. The water temperature is within the normal temperature limits and just wanted to get some feedback? I believe it  is just a T&P valve replacement? Can anything else cause the issue I am seeing or does it look like a T&P valve replacement? Thanks!

After some further investigation it appears the pressure valve is releasing at a lower temp (150 - 175 degrees F). I will replace the valve.

It is all hooked up and works as it should. Thanks for all of the help.

Sorry about the bad quality drawing but the top 2 blade connectors are normally open (on old relay), anyways took your recommendation and got a new relay so will hook up and try out this weekend. Thanks for the help!

RSI - yes 24V from the thermostat.  I drew what I see on the relay see picture. I drew from memory at work.

E Yoder - yes the relay in the picture is old and has seen better days. It has taken me some time to figure out the issue was with the thermostat wire (broke/open) going out to the furnace so I just ran a new wire this last weekend. What I did last year was jumpered the pump to run non stop and in the process disconnected the wires from the relay and much time went by and forgot how it was hooked up.  Once I hook up again and confirm working/or not I will get a new relay.

If I am understanding correctly the bottom 2 blades are for the 24v coming from the thermostat. Once the tstat calls for heat the relay closes the top 2 to make the pump run?

Is that a relay in the picture above? All I know is the item in the picture above is a switch. When the thermostat calls for heat it sends 24v to this switch which in turns complete the circuit so the circulating pump is energized and circulates the  hot water. My question is how is the item in the picture hooked up so it will work like I stated above?

I ran a new thermostat wire out to furnace to control the circulating pump when called for heat. Last year I had circulating pump running all the time because the thermostat wire was broke, Anyways cannot remember how to hook up the thermostat wire and the circulating pump to the switch in the attached picture.  Assume the item in the picture is a relay?

Engine seized a year ago and plan to swap out the engine. I plan to use a Harbor Freight - Predator 5.5 HP vertical shaft. Is there anything special about a log splitter engine that I need to know? Is there anything different about a splitter engine and a lawnmower engine?

Mahoning / Re: Solenoid controlled damper for the blower

I had a local welder do the work for $10 and blower working well. Both of doors (firebox & ash) doors are not closing correctly (light at the corners and asked the welder what could be done. He mentioned he has a press, have any of you had doors do this and what did you do? I'm thinking it would be worth a try just because new doors are a little expensive.

E  Yoder - I eventually took your advice and had the local welder weld the damper on to the new blower. All is working well. Thanks

Mahoning / Solenoid controlled damper for the blower
« on: October 04, 2018, 06:30:13 AM »
My blower failed and have a new replacement Dayton Blower but do not have a damper. My options are to grind off the old damper and have it welded on to new blower. Are the other non welding options?  See typical blower with damper for Mahoning OWF

It is that time of year to overhaul/fix items on the OWF. I have a Model 200 Mahoning OWF and have had it for at least 10-12 years. I have replaced various items over the years but have yet to replace the blower because it has worked up until this past winter. No problem I ordered the blower (Dayton Blower) and was ready to install but the damper/flapper is welded to the old blower and not easy to remove. Is there an easy way to remove the damper housing and install on my new motor or is the a damper I can buy that will attach to my new blower? Looking for a way ahead and know you guys have it. Thanks ahead of time!

slimjim - understand from the drawing that the aqua stat (upper left) and the relay(in middle) are the new parts? Are all items on drawing residing within the oil furnace? What is TT (To TT on Burner). R and B on the aqua stat - what does R and B represent? Sorry for all of these rookie questions.

Obviously I would need an aqua stat and a relay - Where do you recommend I get the parts and how do I do it? Thanks
