    That should have been taken care of by the contractor!

    Ask Our Pros is the correct forum. You should do so with the knowledge that site rules prohibit giving technical advice for DIY work.

    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.

    I saw that but then read can't give diy advice. So I can ask a question but no one can answer it? I sort of understand as you're literally playing with fire but why have a question section at all?

    I bought this house as is and am trying to fix the heating system to get by until we decide to stick with oil or propane. Burnham V1 with a Carlin 99frd that I've gone over with fine tooth comb. Whatever tech serviced this was a hack everything was wrong

    Your full service oil company should be able to send out a tech that can handle that for you. The simplest solution, but not the best, is to turn the low limit all the way down. I only offer this option because you may be getting rid of the boiler. Usually it's the ole 'trying to get one more year out of it', which turns into leaving it for years.
    The boiler will still maintain temperature, so shut it off when you don't need heat in the summer.

    The correct solution is to change it to the proper aquastat.
    Uh...Google it yourself!

    The AOP question section has two main purposes:

    The first purpose is to allow homeowners to ask about work that others have done, especially if they have a question about that work and want an insight about what they were told, and the second purpose is to help homeowners find a good contractor using our Pros map.

    An untrained person “trying to fix the heating system” is literally playing with fire or explosion. That is why we do not involve ourselves with DIY.
    I won’t let a trainee “fix a heating system” without supervision because of potential liability.

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