L=Limit, R=Relay

The L8124 Aquastats are ment to be on boilers that maintain temperature for a domestic hot water coil, The L8148 is ment for a cold start boiler

so i wouldn't be able to use the 8124 instead of the 8148? i no longer have the boiler with the coil, i have a new one that was just put in a month ago and now it won't start i was wondering if i could use the 8124 in place of the 8148 to see if it will run. not sure what the problem is

Aquastats

If this is related to your other post of a flashing light on the primary, the aquastat would not be the problem.

Why are you even messing with this? Just call the guy who put it in.
