I have a KW amplifier that I can re-wire from 120V to 240V, making it work a bit more efficient, and less current draw (and voltage drop) on the #10 wire. It draws about 12A at 120V, so 6A at 240...

Follow up on results after 2 weeks. So far haven't heard any of the problems from before, but I do notice the control for the blower/oil pump does seem to go through a sort of start up clicking. I'm...

Ah, so the cone is a stop on the inserted probe that keeps it at or near the center of the flue? I could just as easily mark it, but perhaps while thrashing around trying to pump, it would be easier...

Now you guys are getting past me. I don't have a controlled damper/vent. It's just the balanced one above the boiler. I did order a smoke tester pump. We'll see if I can make any sense of it. I...

Yes, I may put the original burner motor back in tomorrow. I'm hoping it was the relay keeping the starting current from allowing a good start, on all the motors. We'll eventually see, at least I'll...

Yeah, I wired in the B&G, without water, and it ran fine without the relay in the circuit. Put the relay back in and it wouldn't start and drew 10A. I'm thinking when the impeller got stuck and...
