Question
« on: December 08, 2016, 09:15:31 AM »

I have had my boiler for 8 years and unless I'm losing it, which is possible. I was in the basement this mourning and my furnace kicked on, it actually lit and the fan kicked on. My boiler is running and everything is fine with it, temperature, flow, everything seems to be fine with it . Why, unless I'm forgetting something is the furnace lighting?  It should just kick on the fan. What's the problem?  Did I forget something?

Did you check your thermostat? Your furnace t-stat may be set higher than your boiler's.

How are you controlling the oil / gas burner from coming on in a call for heat?

If youíre using an aqua stat to just kick the fan on it could have gone bad.

Well normally if I have water flowing thru the heat exchanger it just kicks on the fan. If I bypass the heat exchanger then when it calls for heat it kicks on the furnace and it lights

Replaced aqua stat and that fixed it. It's working fine now.  Thanks Slimjim and Mlappin!!!   I don't live to  far from you Mlappin, just south of Valparaiso, a little town called Kouts. Looks like winter is getting here this weekend and next week.  Thanks again!

Could be there is a big Co Alliance Elevator here and in Valpo Co Alliance Fertilizer plant where the old
Chester Hybrid and Chester fertilizer was at. Back in the 60's thru the mid 90's  it was the home of the world largest hog marketing system Heinold Hog Market's. They sold out to IBP in 1993. Thanks again.
