Let’s face it, it’s a huge hassle when your central heating boiler stops working. It can happen at the worst of times, usually in the middle of winter on the coldest day of the year. Here is a testimonial we received from family man and current AireCool Mechanical Inc. customer Frank Sanders:
Please help…the boiler in my home is not firing up. I bought a house earlier this year and I was sure the heat was working when the previous owner turned on the switch. I had a contractor who was helping me do some renovation and I know he turned on the heat to bleed the system, as well as, install some additional baseboards. It seemed to be working at the time.
I have a hydrothermal HC 145 hot water boiler with 2 zones. (1st and 2nd floor). Today I turned the boiler on and turned on the thermostat to 80 to make sure the heat was working. I could hear the boiler running as I heard noises once I turned the thermostat to 80. The gas valve is also set to the ON position. The water was flowing through because I clearly heard water noises. (And also when I release water through the comeback pipe I can hear the incoming water line filling the system.) The pilot light is also on.
BOILER NOT FIRING UP CONTINUED…
However, the boiler does not “fire up” as there is no flame. The only noise I keep hearing is the “spinning” component next to the boiler. After leaving it running for an hour, the water pipes coming out from the boiler are all cold. I tried turning the “fast fill” switch and I could hear water filling into the tank. I tried pushing the manual level on the zone valve. It just went to the Manual side (right) and it just goes back to the Auto side (left) slowly. Can you help me expedite the process of fixing this?
