  • over-filling boiler

    by now you have probably found the valve for the auto fill, and closed it. also check to see if the boiler makes hot water, and that part may be faulty as well, in that a coil inside the boiler can spring a leak.

    don't forget to drain off any excess water before running the boiler.

    do a search here for leaking auto feed, and you will find the proper procedure to diagnose, and then repair the valve.--nbc
