I purchased a Burnham LE-2 boiler in May '98. I have my furnace cleaned annually and in Dec '07 when I had it cleaned I was told that the insulation inside the front door and inside the back was crumbling and should be replaced. In March, the technician returned to do the job and showed me that some of the bolts in the back cast iron piece were rusted off and he was afraid to touch the other ones. Basically he glued the back shut.
I will be contacting Burnham because it is still under full warranty until May 2008. However, I don't have much faith in warranties.
has this happened to anyone else? done anyone know why this happens? I'll be talking to my local oil company tomorrow but I sure would like to hear if any of you have had problems. Thanks a lot!!
