Four years ago I bought a great home in NJ (07506) built in 1960. The Burnham Holiday is set up with zones for hot water base board heating. There is a separate hot water heater.
Just had a frightening event.
The boiler has a constant on pilot light with no thermocouple for safety.
Recently the pilot light went out, the thermostats were calling for heat and the main gas valve was open for hours.
Luckily the bulk of the gas vented outside through the chimney.
Is there a safe way to add the safety of a thermocouple that would break the circuit to open the main gas valve without major rework?
Please send me pictures of the gas valve and pilot, Yes replacing the gas valve with a new one will solve the problem,
Since the gas remained on... either the circuit did not cut or the
valve was stuck.
While my wife and I exchange this word when one of us does something
extraordinary to help the other... I have been authorized to dub YOU our
Amazing to find an experienced honest person... on the internet, no
less. Too bad you're not in NJ.
The good news is that I have a service contract on the boiler.
Just need to tell them what to bring.
My sincerest thanks! Anywhere I can post something to a website
promoting what you do?
You are welcome, I'm not aware of any place to post good news about people and websites, Maybe I will create a website for people to do that. Thank you for using The 24/7 Help Line.
