Boiler releases water but continues to stay on

queens Member Posts: 1
My boiler has run dry a few times,the first /second time the lwco switch shut everything down.Everything went back to normal.It has happened on more occasions and  now as I refill it it leaks water for a little while (pressure release ?) and then it stops.Then I'm able to refill it, it runs fine throughout  the day, then the next morning I notice water has leaked again and the boiler is running dry again.Is it a problem with the pressure release valve ? How can I check ? Main board ?

Thank You

    You will need professional help for this problem, as it seems your boiler has begun to leak.

    He should overfill the boiler, and then look for the leak.--NBC

    Boiler or return lines?

    Is it that the boiler is leaking or is it losing water due to a leak elsewhere?

    You have a major safety hazard right now. Don't use the boiler until you can have it fixed or replaced.
