Which Honeywell high limit / boiler controls do you have on hand?
Hello, did a service call last night, Honeywell 8148E dropped out, I had a 8148J (no stack vent damper), I want to get some more stock for out own inventory, does anyone have a list of what they keep? I'm certainly happy to pay more for controls that do more (I won't be buying another J model)
I assume you had an OEM
version of the L8148E that has a hook up for the vent damper. That is an OEM control only so you would have to order it from the OEM.The L8148J is the Universal replacement that covers quite a lot of different relays so I would not if I were you not have one.0
Tim, I spent some time at honeywell,com and the "shelf" 8148E1265 seems to be an exact replacement. I neglected to get the suffix numbers off the unit last night. I was bummed how long I spent verifying whether it was the honeywell control or the stack damper end switch; I really dont do lots of service calls anymore.
So, the j model does 24 and milli I learned today. The e is a 24v with damper output, the a is a 115.
Gary, I try to keep an A, E (I do a lot of Buderus G124's), and J around. Also the newer digital aquastats are pretty useful for oil (7224?). I can do just about anything with one in a pinch.
I also try to keep an L4006 and 6006 around for the same reasons. Gets me out of a pinch on late nights and weekends.
I try to keep a 8184G primary and a Couple of carlins with the different delays on the van.
A roll duct tape and some wire. What else do we need?
good to know
Thanks for the comments, sounds like good advice, i am rusty on my 'basic controls". The L7224U1002 you mention, i do see those on the new oil boilers we install.
On a service call is there anything this unit won't do (i am asking in regard to basic aquastat)? Does it do low limit?
I will keep a 8148 a,e,j on hand. Thanks for input on the oil side
