    Yeah, probably a thousand times. As long as you learn from each one so you don't get baffled the next time.

    What problem are you having?
    Sometimes talking it out (typing it out) puts you on the right path. Or someone could chime in and help.

    Odd that you come online to a place where people can help you and you don't say what problem you are having.
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    The picture you are looking at is too big. Break it down into smaller pieces.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Make it bite size and we will help you eat it up. My guess is you have electric reheat.

    I see... A building in heat can be a challenging beast to tame. It happens to all of them though so it’s best to just prepare for it before it occurs. For now, it’s probably best to just keep your building away from other buildings so you don’t end up with a bunch of little houses running around. I suggest you take your building to get spayed or neutered before it gets this far next time.

    If it’s already gone beyond that point then it’s probably best to take all those little houses to the rental agency. For those that are unfamiliar, that is a place where they get locked up, then people go to view them, and if they are lucky, a family will decide to make them home.

    I almost blew coffee out of my nose when I read it!! That is the funniest damn thing I have read in a long time. And thanks for the good laugh at the end of a long MONDAY!

    This is amazing and yeah I wouldn't want this building multiplying it's like a gremlin.
    I just figured o couldn't get help since advice would possibly be prohibited as I'm not a professional user. Anyways the building is a heavy duty shop for mine trucks, all I can touch are the radiant heaters and unit heaters but it also has 8 air handlers that another company services. Anyways the problem I'm having are with the radiant heaters that intermittently cut out and the Honeywell sv9510 combo valve locks out (6 flashes). 16 tubes, they all fire up fine and cutout erratically. It seems that the duration depends on if they are hot which seems to reduce the time running. All individually vented with combustion air intakes.

    Yeah I'm working on it, I personally should have done this years ago when my J-man first showed me the forum. Lots of resources here and very experienced techs.

    It's not a very smart valve, trust me.

    That "Stupid Valve" cost half as much as a new furnace. Dumb idea.
