    No Heat -"Do you want me turn it on" customer.

    I said no I will do down there and then check the stat last.
    AND I AM SURE GLAD I DID!!!!!

    I take the front cover off the boiler and this is what I see.

    There is only one truly right way to do something, but there are thousands of wrong ways to varying degrees to do it.
    So the question is: If you don't do it right, then how wrong is it going to be???

    So after cleaning up the burners and checking things out. As I was putting it back together I noticed this.
    I sure looks like it ran for a bit without the burner in place. If you look back at other picture you can see the shield was at a angle.

    Yes the roll out was on the shield but on the left side - It was still good but the wires were burnt right above the roll out.
    And of course there were wires melted together. Here is a picture of the roll out also.

    That’s a thermal fuse. Was it good still?

    Might have gone boom if it fired up prior to you looking at it.
