Old cxe5 with honeywell 8148a questions
I'm not too experienced so help me out if I'm mistaken. My housemates and I were having problems with our crown cxe5. Mainly pilot and circulation. New circulator was first fix. Then the honeywell 8148 to replace whatever historic piece we had before. Then the fan burnt out. Well we have problems with the pilot again now.
Did research, got aquastat and boiler diagrams and variations.
What the pro wired is not with crowns specs and is a combination of two wiring setups for the 8148e, not our model. We have l3 going to a transformer(I think, it says 60 v on it though) then our pressure switch and finally 24gnd on the boiler. The regular 24 has nothing.
It could be a work around I guess, but it still is the same setup as in the cxe manual so why? Also the circ is on the b's and fan on the circulators...
Now we have no ignition and it has that fried component scent. Just wondering if we should just give up on this thing or if all the more recent problems might have to do with the weird wiring? Thanks.
