    Is it a Bacharach MZF or a Dwyer magnehelic?

    And, are you SURE that this is a steamer????

    That's a Wayne. They set up differently than a Beckett.

    There is a "rebuild" kit for that burner still available.

    It's a piece of ****.

    Teh puffing might be delayed ignition, but I am SERIOUSLY worried that that boiler might really be steam. If it is, people's lives are in danger.

    Heatseeker

    Not trying to be a dick, but I an truly deeply worried about that boiler running at that pressure.

    Steam boilers are only rated at 15 psi. IF you pop a hole in that thing, and it drains down, dry fires, and then gets cold water dumped on it, the building will blow up and people will die. No kidding. Seriously.

    If you're not SURE that if it's steam or not, say so, but make sure that this thing gets checked to be certain, and soon.

    I'm not trying to scare you, just trying to impress upon you the gravity of the situation.

    Step away from that boiler and get professional help. If you don't even know what you are looking at, leave it alone.

    This is really scary, or it is a troll.

    key questions:

    What is the model number on the boiler?

    What is the model number of the limit control?

    What is the model number of the low water cut off?

    it's the internet

    There's people here working with the guy, and there's the "Richards" among us that are on EVERY website.

    If the tech wants to work with people, we're here.

    It won't matter what Mr. R. Head thinks of the guy.
