Need info on upgrade to Replace F3 in model 115/28 Buderus
Is there an upgrade burner that will match an old Riello F3 in an older Buderus 115/28?
The F3 is still available, you could switch to Beckett or Carlin but are they really an upgrade?To learn more about this professional, click here to visit their ad in Find A Contractor.1
Do you have a source for the F3 with hydraulic jack for air?0
The OEM Riello F3 for Buderus has no hydraulic jack at Buderus request. You could buy a new generic chassis with jack and install that or install jack on existing burner if the air jack is what you want?To learn more about this professional, click here to visit their ad in Find A Contractor.0
Buderus never offered the F3 or F5 with the hydraulic or electric air gate. They need some air going through.
The hydraulic jack can be removed completely and plug the capillary port at the fuel pump.
While not exactly an upgrade, the BF3 is enclosed and brings in outside combustion air.
A post purge control can also be added. Fine Corinthian leather is an option.1
What's wrong with the F3? Still state of the art.

The Riello F3, code 8511115, on my old Buderus 115/28 has the hydraulic lift on the gate. Just replaced it as it was leaking after 30 years. Would like to replace the F3 with new F3 of same code and with the hydraulic lift if I can.
You wont find an OEM F3 for any Buderus. Even retrofit Riello's no longer come with a hydraulic jack. Why are you so concerned?0
Just trying to replace it with what has worked reliably for 30 plus years, that's all. If the current F3s use an electric air gate lift that is fine with me. No more concern than asking questions and seeking information, so thanks for your response.0
