#V-73 Burnham Oil Boiler - Need Manual ASAP! Please help!

I have looked everywhere, contacted Burnham, and looked at the US Boiler website. This boiler is about 40 years old and they don't have a manual at Burnham, and I couldn't find a "manuals" link on US Boiler. Does anyone have any idea where I can find this manual? Thanks in advance . . .

Hi,

You may have found all this stuff, but what do you need from the manual?

Capacities.

BURNHAM V

There was a lawsuit of boilers cracking on the V7 abd V8 series. Not sure if yours applies. They were giving $600 towards section replacement or new boiler. Again this is only what I read.

Here is just another page on the V7. You are probably best just use the manual from the V8 series.

V8 series.

I need to replace the manual that I had from a customer - someone in my office "accidentally" put it in the trash! Ugh!

Really? You mean if you type in " V7 Boiler Manual " into Google you won't find what you are looking for? (hint: try the alpinehomeair.com link )

Uhh...Im not seeing it Troop...

I figured it would have been easier for you to post the direct link since you were there?

Unless you are teaching use how to search for things on the internet 101???????

Just a little levity...

Yep, when I put in V7 I get a manual - but it's not the right one. The manual that comes up is for "V7 Series Oil Fired Boiler Knockdown & Packaged Heating Units" which isn't the right one. I specifically need the V-73 Oil Boiler manual and haven't been able to find it anywhere! I did try alpinehomeair.com and while they were very helpful, they found the same V7 series manual also.

As far as I know, the V73 is simply a three section model of the V7 series. The 74 is 4 section, etc., etc.

RBeck would know for sure.

rbeck is very familiar with Burnham products & a regular poster on this forum. Hopefully he will see this thread & respond or you could try sending him a private message.

Sorry guys I was in Aruba for 8 days and boilers was the last thing on my mind.
There was no law suit, but they did pay up to $500 for replacement if within the first 10 years. After that the boiler gets a pro-rated discount for a V8 or MPO-IQ.
Never anything on the V8.
V7 and V8 are different models and different manuals.
As someone stated all V7's are in the same V7 manual and all V8's in the same V8 manual not to be confused with V8H which they have now.
I have electronic versions of these manual but need the date code on the boiler label or some idea what year it was installed.
