I just installed a new mini therm boiler! It has wwsd but it's inactive, i set the max temp dip switch to 210° but the boiler shuts off at 150° every time. Any suggestions?

    What other controls are on your system? As I read it, at least some models of that boiler come with an outdoor reset which must be connected -- and, as I read it, that outdoor reset control limits the boiler to 150 maximum temperature when the outside air temperature is about freezing...

    You can turn off the outdoor reset and the warm weather shutdown

    It looks like the boiler puts you in a low temp mode when you override the outdoor reset and WWSD.
    It also appears that if there is a DHW call, it will overide outdoor reset and wwsd.
    I think you would be better off setting it up as the manual describes. You will get the energy savings of wwsd and reset with no real downside.
    A boiler max of 210 makes me a bit nervous, I would put that one back to 190.
