    Steam boiler controls???

    Does anyone know what controls a oil fired steam boiler? What controls the temperature, and does the low water cut off come build on to the boiler?

    Dude ...you do not need to be within 10 feet of a steam boiler.

    I agree, this is not a DIY site. Call a contractor!

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Ok, I might have been exaggerating.

    Actually. I have 2 different versions of that.

    OK Thanks any way. There must be an Aqustat control that is set at 212 degrees, that shuts the burner off. I'm guessing the low water cut off is mounted on the boiler too. The thermostat is wired to TT on the primary control. I'm only asking because there is only about 1 in every 100 houses that have steam were I live.

    Follow my instructions in post 4.
    After you are accepted.

    You can ask in the pro tech forum. And find out before you harm someone.
    Because you don't know how steam boilers and their controls work.

    Do It Yourself.

    Meaning, home owners that do their own repairs or installs instead of hiring a contractor.
