Once the ends get weathered splitting gets tougher.
I like to...

All I know so far...

Supplier has bought a new 240V pump
Fired it up yesterday.
Beautiful burn. Easy to light. My wife will be happy.
240 v coil relay? Don't have a clue as to what that is.
The pump load is switched from the module now.
Would that switch have to be bypassed?
It's a new unit. Manufacture date Dec.2012.
Who would be next up the supply ladder? The manufacturer?
Thanks for the interest Scott.
For clarification, the unit I have is the FHG Turbo.
I see your unit has the main power switch as part of the ESB...
Module supply is correct.
240volt pump supply confirmed
Hooked up a new transformer
today. After about two minutes
Good point skfire
Trouble is , the boiler showed no errors.
Boiler showed the pump active and ID fan running 100%
Thanks for the feedback.
Yes the Froling has 240v supply. Everything checks out good there.
My unit did not come with a loading unit.
True, it does want to run a 240v...
Everything was running fine for 20 min after switching speed.
First I think I need to be able to fire the pump (new transformer)
Maybe the boiler...
Thanks for the reply Dan
The Boiler is sending out 240V for the pump. I'm using a 120V pump.
Therefore I need the transformer.
Whats that about a...

First fire was as per instructions and everything was running fine.
After about 1 1/2 hours,...
Thanks for the replies.
Waiting to hear back if it's a lambda unit.
I have the opportunity to buy a new Froling FHG20 boiler for 8500 dollars.
How is this unit for burning pine and poplar (softwoods)?
I'm asking about cold starting.
Cold as in 30 F not 80F
My concern/question is about the procedure to get the refractory up to temp so as not to...
Is the boiler not in a heated space? I think I would worry about freeze breaks if the boiler could get to 30f in a day or two.
The boiler is in...
How long does it take to get the Eko 25 refractory hot enough for a full on firing when the boiler is cold (30F)?
What procedure do users have for...
I wanted to put wood under the copper pipe to stop the PEX from pulling the copper down. My concern is that the stress may separate the copper...
I'd break that vertical copper and put an extension on it to bring it back to it's original location.
Lots of stresses on that copper the way it...
Finally warmed up to 10F today.
Give me a chance to get ahead for the next cold snap.
92F is being fed to the floor. 130F in storage.
My reset is set to max out at 110F
80F is usable when outdoor temp is about 50F
I use the system in the shoulder season as well.
Rarely use the...

House holding steady at 72 deg.F.
Anybody getting by...
Since your storage is in the outside boiler house and not in your home I'd recommend not heating the tank any more than you need. What...
I've found that only heating my tank as high as I need to make it through to
my next burn is more efficient. Less standby losses from tank.
1.62 cords is not 2. Granted its a good price. But it's still not right.
When I buy wood I stack tight and measure. If I'm short almost 1/2 cord...
when you are talking about positive or negative pressure are you referring to
the firebox or the water jacket?
