Marty, you actually took the time to research what the membership levels of all those sites were? But you canít find the time to read the first page of this thread even after accusing me of being the culprit!
Wow, just plain WOW, itís time for a change!

But anyway, perhaps the person crying about the subject here should shut his yap about other people not helping the OP if he's not going to help himself. What was that old saying about a pot and a kettle again?


Well, if it's me your refering to, I am NOT a dealer for any brand or pretending to be an so called expert. I received valuable information and assistance from this site and the old outdoor boiler site years ago when I was getting started. People made these sites helpful, where someone like the OP could get some helpful information or advice. Not so much anymore. If I had the info or connections to HM that the good dealers here must have, I would be right in there helping him, but that's not what seems to be happening. I guess since he didn't purchase the unit from someone here he's on his own?
I posted on this thread not because I have the answer to his issues, but trying to get you back to the real reason , for me anyway, why most members joined here, to learn and to help others with their outdoor furnace.

I was considering posting more, but things got out of hand. So I'll stick my neck out now.
The bypass door has warped, i don't think there's a good fix except for what he's done, bolting it shut. I don't know if the dealer sold as is or not, with it being older when sold. I don't know the story there.
The brick in the bottom has a gap around the top. The new ones do too, maybe a little narrower than what his picture shows but definitely not tight to the top. I can see a larger gap adding maybe a hundred degrees to the stack temps, but I'm wondering if some of the high stack temps he measured are with the smoke bypass leaking by.
The rough looking metal. I appears to me it goes past some welds, so I would think something really corrosive was in the firebox at some point rather than bad metal. The only thing I've seen flake up 409 SS was some salt water from a pool exchanger that leaked into the water jacket, but that was from the inside out. In this case I don't know and there's no way to go back and inspect it before it was burned, which was why I suggested seeing if he could trade it in.

My reference was not to you at all, but SlimJim and his agenda. I apologize if it sounded like I was pointing fingers at you. Slim has this tendency to babble on and on about nothing, blaming everybody else for things he could easily take care of himself. A "pot stirrer" if you will. So his ramblings here about nobody else helping the OP when he himself is only hurting the OP by rambling, gets under my skin and I'm sure I'm not the only one

Really Darin, Iím rambling, I saw the door and recognized the problem HeatMaster product, none of you HeatMaster guys recognized it or would help, now with it being a larger thread, perhaps HeatMaster wonít blame the homeowner as they did originally and will replace the problem boiler, what gets under your skin is that again you missed the issue and I didnít!

Eldon, good call, exactly as I said before, now, if you paid for a stove expecting a working smoke bypass, would you not want it to work properly?

I believe you have me confused with someone else, and I have no dog in this fight. I do however, find humor in your ridiculous antics and that is my sole reason for commenting. Everything I've seen you say in the couple years I've been here has been some sort of lunatic agenda against Heatmaster, for whatever reason. I own a Heatmaster and have had very good luck with it, nothing further.

So I spoke with ticapa this morning and an offer has been made but we both agree that it might not be a good deal, what is a guy to do when a manufacturer knowingly sells a problem model boiler and then wants to nickel and dime the customer?

Thank You Crow, I have complained to the one and only Moderator in several ways as well as multiple times but it seems that he doesnít remember his own rules of engagement or perhaps those rules donít pertain to HeatMaster guys! Letís hope that ticapa has a more productive conversation with HeatMaster corporate than we have seen on here!

Have you used the ďreport to moderator ď feature?

Thatís what got you in trouble before, other members reporting your posts. Try it, it does work.

Oh yes Marty, as you know I have used it and sent messages as well but you donít seem to care when your associates come after me or someone complains about a HeatMaster.
Sure glad you are feeling better.

And for this I do apologize, I used to get a message like ďyou have reported postsĒ when I logged in or refreshed the page, that feature doesnít seem to be working anymore. Offending members will be warned.

It appears itís been at least two years since the forum software has been updated, I donít have the required permissions or access to do this.

Apology accepted for that, now how about a little chat with Darrin Pryzbilla AKA Wreckit and Jonathan for their comments on here as well!
