Ultra 105 series 3 Blower Fault

Good Morning Everyone,

I’m new here and I’m in need of some help....

Ultra 105 installed by me in 09 with zero issues until this year. A few months ago the flue sensor went bad and I changed that along with the igniter and no issues since.

Last week I noticed a faint squeal coming from the blower motor, I checked it out, gave it a tap and it went away.

I’m away on vacation right now and I got a call from my father who’s dog sitting in my house saying the boiler locked out. First thing that came to mind was the blower and that’s what flashed on the screen. He and my buddy who is also a plumber changed it out with a new one.

Now it fires for about 5 seconds and goes out constantly. It ran all night like that and it will not lock out to give us a clue what’s going on. As I write this my buddy is going back to try cleaning the condensate.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Mike

    Is it a series 2 or 3?
    Do you annually get the WM maintenance kit and clean the heat exchanger?
    You should be able to get into the history to check previous lockouts, flame signal, etc.
    Continuous recycle without a lockout doesn't seem right.

    Thank you for the reply.
    The last time it was cleaned was this past August and it is a Series 3. I changed both the ignitior and flue sensor during that service. Condensate drain is clear. This is just so strange because it’s been trouble free until this.

    What were the readings from the combustion analysis at the August maintenance?

    My service experience is quite limited. All I did was clean the heat exchanger and replaced sensors.

    That's what I was getting to.
    You need to call a pro to resolve the issue.
