General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / Re: Rig a shop vac to pull out ash?
« on: December 23, 2018, 09:40:54 AM »
Get a drywall bag filter and install it in the shop vac. And like what has been pointed out, only use when the stove is cold.
That's exactly what I was going to say.

We have burnt more wood this season than in the past. It has been colder than average so far this winter and we have had strong gusty winds almost every day. Plus now I have the heat on in the shop. On a good note there is a lot of building going on around here and I have loads of logs showing up here almost daily from the clearing of house lots. Almost all oak  :thumbup: let it burn.

My boiler is back up and running. Thanks RSI and everyone at Heatmaster. They reviewed the instructions that came with the controller swap and will be updating them for the future with less words and more pictures. Heatmaster has made several changes to the G200 since it became available and everyone's is a little different. Hopefully the logo control update will be much easier in the future. :thumbup:

RSI thanks for your response. I am waiting on Wally to call me back from tech support. If you want to help out as well send me a PM with the best way for us to communicate and I will get in touch with you. Thanks Alan.

At least yours works , I wish that was the only problem I was having. I wish someone from steeltech would call me back with an answer to fix it. I know electronics fail and I just wish that there was a schematic so I could trace out the problem.

So it appears that when they did the logo 8 update they figured out how to change the wiring to make it work , wrote down what they did and started sending them out. Even the techs don't have a wiring schematic to refer to. I tried going back and looking at the schematic that came in the manual and that doesn't even match exactly how it was wired when I started. Now I have a wire in the wrong place and no one seems to know which one it is. It's going to be 10 here and no boiler :bash:

So my control on my G200 quit working and Heatmaster sent me the new updated control. I thought I put all the wires back in the correct locations , the instructions they sent get a little confusing in the middle. When I turned it back on it began to start up and then blew fuse #1 so I shut it back down. Anyone have a wiring schematic of the retrofit? I was hoping not to have to wait until monday for tech support. Thanks guys for any help.

Nothing like that here in the commy state of MA. The only thing you can find at the pump out here is VP at a couple places. I went to get some for a pulling tractor we were taking to the fair this summer $12.99/ gal. Guess I haven't bought any in a while I think it was around $6 last time I went up there.

I have put a lot of hours on Husky saws. The only problem I have ever had is with fuel lines. The ethanol in the new gas will cause them to deteriorate much faster than they used to. They sell kits with all the rubber lines and a fuel filter. Very easy to change after you have taken enough off the saw to expose the grommet where the lines pass through the tank. I switched over to using aviation gas only in all my 2 stroke engines. They run better and no more fuel issues.

Thanks RSI I tried everything I could think of before I called my local dealer to see what he came up with. Steve called Heatmaster and they said replace the control. Still not sure why it went bad after 3 years but apparently it did and I guess they have a new control with an upgrade. See how that works.

The Wall Of Shame / Re: Do you know what happens when...

I'm sure most of us have been there. I have a spare key to my house in my wallet because the wife and kid will use the hidden key and never put it back. I remember a funny story about going up to hunt at the camp in Maine. When I got there my key wouldn't unlock the door.Turns out someone had tried to break in and my buddies dad had changed the lock. While I was looking for a way to get in I finally decided to use the brick next to the stairs to break the window on the door and when I picked it up there was the key. When he showed up he said "I figured one of you guys would smash the window so that's where I left the key." Made for a good laugh.

So this weekend i finally got around to giving the boiler it's fall once over before I light it for the season. The oo7 pump I have for a recirculator was dead so I changed it out. I pulled the fan door off and made sure everything in there was clean and working properly. Checked the damper plate and it was clean and free. I turned the power switch on and the logo control lit up but there was nothing on the screen. The red light is flashing like it does when it's cold. The cold start button is not working either. The fan comes on if you open the bypass handle. I pulled the control panel off and checked the fuses and they are fine. Everything looks clean and in proper order in there. I turned it on/off several times but still nothing on the screen. Starting to think the logo control is bad? Stove build date is 10/2015.

I have been using Permetherin SFR 36% I mix it up in my backpack sprayer and I spray all the areas where the grass and bushes tend to grow up. I spray it around the trees and along the stone walls and anywhere it tends to get wet around our property. I have noticed a huge drop in mosquitoes and ticks.They claim that without to much heavy rain it will keep working for 8+ weeks.

we need it to stop raining here. tried to mow some hay the other day and almost got the tractor stuck. no spring here either went from cold to hot to cold again. The lawn grows about 12" a minute but it's the only plants that are happy right now. Hard to figure it out.

He told me he wasn't planning on coming back on here. He is pretty bitter with the whole wood boiler industry.
