pump turns on and off constantly then works normal sometimes??
my home is heated with electric radiant heat in the floors. it worked great the first 8 years but the last two years ive had a recurring problem with it turning on and off over and over. sometimes it works like normal but sometimes i hear the pump kick on for a minute or less then it turns off then a couple minutes later its on and off again and it will repeat this for hours at a time then it will work fine for a few days or weeks at a time. in the last two years ive had my plummer here atleast 5 times and a couple of the times he charged me 50 dollars and said he couldnt find anything wrong. one time the spring bearing thing in the pump had seized up(i assume from turning on and off so many times), another time he replaced the small tank thing that hangs from the bottom of the heater, then last time it cost 590 dollars to replace that tank again and he put some kind of a valve inline before that small tank, and a different time one of the short wires inside the unit had burned in two(again i think this is from turning on and off over n over) that time he replaced the burned wire with a heavier gauge wire. i am not very handy when it comes to things like this but i cant afford to have a plummer come out and replace parts that dont solve the problem. can someone please help with some ideas of whats causing this. my bedroom is above the basement utility room so i normally only hear this at night and the strange part is that the tempurature in the house normal stays where i have it set except when the wire burned and the pump seized up but i think this on and off thing is going to continue breaking parts causing me to lose heat. in an hour it will turn on and off 20-40 times when its doing this. any ideas would be greatly appriciated. thanks -chris
