Question Problem with K1 relay on Honey Well 8182D

Thermostat is calling for heat correctly. K1 and K2 pull in. However the circulator pump wont run. No voltage at the pump. If I slightly move or jiggle K1 relay (while pulled in) the pump kicks on. The pump seems to stop prior to the heat call being satisfied. Over the past 4hrs the house temp has gone from 64-68 (heat call the entire time) I have checked the circ pump every 1/2hr the K1 relay is always pulled in however the pump is off. I jiggle K1 the pump starts and house warms for a while. The burner side seems to be functioning correctly.


Is it possible that the K1 relay is bad. Can I replace that replay?

Any help would be awesome!

Thanks,

-Chip

It certainly possible & in your case probable the relay or a solder joint to it is bad. If you have soldering skills on circuit boards & can find a relay, you can replace it. Keep in mind, if you do repair the control & there is a major problem caused by said repair, nobody except yourself can be held liable. As a professsional, I MIGHT do it on my own equipment if I were in a pinch but as soon as I could get a new control, I'd replace the control but I would not go back with an 8182. I'd use a separate aquastat (R7224?) & primary control. It's probably cheaper to replace both than buy a new 8182D.

Thanks for the quick reply!!

I do have the ability to solder. Any thoughts on where to find a relay?

Also I have read that removing power and "cleaning" the exposed relay contacts could help.

Any thoughts?

Thanks again.

No idea as to where to get a relay. I doubt cleaning will help. My money is on a bad solder joint.

I agree with Grady......solder connections.

The link is to an interactive relay selection guide.
