I found that we were heating the upstairs around the LO setting . I do not have the money to install a setback system.

heating boiler's burner on a call for heat. The result is that heat will be delivered to the building by convection - more slowly than if the circulator were running - but still effectively. It is controled with High and low setting. The hydrostat heats up when I shower but I do noticed that the gauge on boiler and hydrostat do not match if the exampl. We explain the location and use of the heating boiler reset button found on aquastats. Almost normal no. I am running it 24/7 because of the price of oil.

The circulators keep running, and the boiler burner may cycle on and off in this manner, until the room thermostat is satisfied. This problem was made worse since our set-back t-stat would usually turn on for the first time when we were showering and the return water to the boiler of around 63 deg F drastically dropped the boiler temperature which killed heat transfer to the domestic water. Please see AQUASTAT OPTIMAL LO/DIFF SETTING.

Moments later I heard screaming from the shower as my wife got hit with freezing cold water. Thus, 100% of the heat is transferred. For readers not familiar with the HI LO and DIFF settings on aquastats, see AQUASTAT CONTROL FUNCTIONS as well as this article.

Watch out: if still your heating system will not start and run normally, do not keep pressing the reset button as you could cause an unsafe condition. What should the DIFF be set at?

(Nov 23, 2015) Jackie said:We have to hit the reset button on our furnace for it to run. Depending on wiring hookup choices, this control operates the heating system oil burner, circulator, and zone circulators. You may be able to a different-colored wire that is the equivalent of the "blue wire" found on an R8182 on yourdifferent model of aquastat. (Feb 2, 2013) Matt said: what should the low limit differential be set for on my electronic oil aquastat L7224? A much debated question is just where is the break-even point between the standby losses from keeping the boiler warm, versus the extra fuel you have to burn to heat up an ice cold boiler when you need hot water from the tankless coil. We took the cover off the Aquastat(L8124A) and saw a semi exposed wire and the circuit board looks like it been arced.

In some heating systems one can over-ride a check valve at the boiler by manually turning a lever, and similarly one can manually open some heating zone valves. Usually water hammer, that can occur in heating systems too, happens when a pump turns off or when a valve closes; it's not a feature of water temperature. The fuel savings produced by an ambient temperature reset system is apparently achieved by an improvement in the efficiency of the "total hydronic system" and not just one component. How to disable the LO and DIFF feature on a heating boiler aquastat combination control: Here we explain how and why you might want to turn off the LO Limit on a typical heating boiler aquastat. If a circulator pump is not working but the boiler is heating up, the boiler should not get hotter than the upper safety limit set by its HI LIMIT control. Thanks for the note, Ken; I'm of course surprised as the blue wire is normally used as we described - but then yours is not an R8184 it's an L8124 aquastat; With it disconnected the HI limit ought to run the boiler;What were your aquastat settings for HI LO DIFF?Did you check to assure your other wiring connections are as given in the installation guide for this control? Honeywell says the Burner ON and Circulator OFF temperatures remain the same - LO setting MINUS 10 degF where that 10 is hard-wired in the control. 2. This article series answers most questions about Heating System Boiler Controls on central heating systems to aid in troubleshooting, inspection, diagnosis, and repairs. My problem was that the upstairs thermostat only started the circulating pump.

I really appreciate your help. Yes. Honeywell Type L4006H. switch on and off a single circulator pump, and if a tankless coil is installed on the boiler, it may also turn the oil burner on and off as needed to maintain Below we include additional warnings about stuff to watch for when disabling the LO limit on an aquastat. You could leave the diff set quite low, say down to 120, but the problem is likely to be that you won't have much hot water when you do need it, unless your boiler were an older, physically larger or cast iron unit that had plenty of thermal mass. (Excellent tips on spotting problems on oil-fired heating equipment. The effect of setting the DIFF up from 10 to 25 is that when the burner is re-heating the boiler (for example while the tankless coil is in use and you're in the shower), the burner heats the boiler temperature up to a higher level before the burner is turned off and the circulator is allowed to turn back on.

This gives more even heat and helps avoid a frozen heating zone pipe in very cold climates. It's very well done and informative.

My boiler technician pulled a bypass wire out of the L8124 and I may no longer use the wood/coal boiler to heat my home. Only wire on L8124A aquastat was the Lo blue wire disconnected but as soon as it was reconnected the burner started. About your "... shower is in another heating zone ..." - I'm a bit confused. 1.

I figured my wife would be able to step out of the shower into a nice warm house. Depending on wiring hookup choices, this control operates the heating system oil burner, circulator, and zone circulators. I'd call for service. On a call for hot water it's the LO and DIFF that are in control. The WMO-1 was put in in place of some other blocked flue detector (I don't recall what it was) and they reused the wiring.

Or a defective sensor bulb might also cause this problem, in which case the control along with its temperature sensor will need to be replaced. L7224U1002- is a universal electronic aquastat (replacing over 40 other aquastat models) that provides circulator, burner and boiler temperature control with electronic temperature sensing. Note: I have not only the Boiler temp gauge but also the Intellidyne has a senor on the boiler output. Take a look there and let me know how you make out. Any advice would be appreciated! I tried setting the HI at 220 and LO at 190. But you're right that there are a few things to worry about besides having to keep the boiler hot for the tankless coil used to produce domestic hot water for washing and bathing. So if the LO is set to 120 and the DIFF is set to 10, when the boiler temperature rises to 120 the burner turns off and the circulator is allowed to run - that is to circulate water out of the boiler to the baseboards or radiators. So I can't imagine telling you to just go ahead and hook it back up.

I would ask for an inspection by your heating service tech to decide: 1. what's causing the system to go off on re-set. I suggest that you NOT go above your current settings. When we moved in we noticed hot water in shower would last 1 min and then go to cold. The info that I've found here is info the guys that came to service my boiler didnt know. What might be reason please? Your note indicates that you are using a tankless coil for producing domestic hot water. Then the burner is turned off. We also provide a MASTER INDEX to this topic, or you can try the page top or bottom SEARCH BOX as a quick way to find information you need. What could be my issue?

In a few cases, certain cast iron boilers may cool off and begin to

Be double sure you've ruled out the obvious like a bad wire or connection and that you're not trying to reset while the heater is still hotter than the limit setting. But just swapping in a new control or circuit board without having an idea of what was happening risks having to repeat the repair.

After adjusting the cartridge in single handle hot water came out more but died in 2 mins now.

Our aquastat function explanation below is bases on the "American" model or as the Canadians say, "the Yanks".

I rewired the controls and solved the problems but eventually put in and electric water heater to eliminate the frequent minor faucet adjustments needed because of the boiler's moderate temperature swings. In this article series on heating boiler aquastat settings we explain how to choose the best settings for a heating boiler aquastat - the combination control that sets boiler temperature and may also control hot water production via a tankless coil on the heating boiler. (Nov 13, 2012) Buddy said:Radhames, I have a Honeywell 8124C Aquastat and successfully disabled the lo and diff functions. Right now the aquastat is set to H 180 L 160 Diff 10. Just below I've removed the cover so that you can see the actual reset switch (green arrow). The burner turns on and re-heats the heating water inside the boiler until boiler temperature reaches the cut-off or cut-out temperature. Also make sure your heating lines are insulated. Should I disable the low and Diff?Thanks, My hydrogic boiler don’t supplied domestic hot water I’ve a separate hot water tank for that.

Just go to convenient fixture (I like sinks that use a single lever Delta type faucet handle for this trick) and run cold water at full "on", then switch over to hot at full "on". The circulator will not turn on even though the oil gun is turned off by the wood/coal boiler. (Nov 13, 2012) Radhames said:I went ahead and removed that blue wire from my aquastat and its working.

And I think these settings apply regardless of the Intellidyne Economizer.

Should be setting it up that high or is 25 diff fine? When the new switch is ON it's the same as if you'd left the wire connected as originally installed. Bob, thanks for the comment. OR, should I turn the boiler on 24/7 and leave the LO set at 120 (lowest point) and set the high at 180-160-140 ?

We also provide a MASTER INDEX to this topic, or you can try the page top or bottom SEARCH BOX as a quick way to find information you need. 1. (Nov 13, 2012) Radhames Delacruz said:When disabling the lo and diff settings, I noticed where it says jumper there are two wires, one is yellow and the other is red. Any suggestions. We provide links just below to several aquastat installation, setting, and adjustment documents in response to reader requests and comments that people sometimes have difficulty finding this information. Differential ‘drops’ the Low Limit.

(Nov 16, 2015) Terence said: Hello i think my cir has lockout.i change my expansion tank an took the probe out (being lazy didnt want to go back up an turn the cut off switch)but now my oil boiler wont fire up an the aquastat is reading c.i.r off can u help me. I have an Oil Fired Boiler forced hot water system (Hydronic) with typical baseboard radiators. above Low Limit setting (if applicable - that is, if this feature is enabled - the default).

The purpose of this point is to stop circulating hot boiler water through the heating baseboards or radiators in order to give my family member, standing in the shower with a head full of shampoo, priority for receiving hot water.
