I am looking for help or suggestions? I'm having trouble with my Natures Comfort outdoor wood boiler. Its several years old and I inherited it from my father that passed away a couple of years ago. So I'm having to learn or figure it out as I go.
Last winter I had it running. Several times when I went to put wood in it, the steam would build up so much that it would blow the water float and cap off and the water would come out the water fill tube.
I started my boiler this winter for the first time and it started doing the same thing. I checked the back and noticed that the control box on the circulation pump had melted.
This is my old pump
So I bought a brand new circulation pump. A Systemflo pump from Walrus America.
I had an electrician check my aquastat. He said everything was good with it
I installed the new pump. After starting a fire in the boiler, about 2 hours later, I checked the pump noticed that it was starting to get hot but I kept running it.
About 3 hours in, the new pump was extremely hot and I heard a loud mechanical squealing coming from the new circulating pump. So I shut it down.
Any ideas or suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
