You obviously have a leak(s) somewhere that need to be fixed immediately. If you can't visibly see any, you may have some in buried wet return piping.
It may be time to call a steam pro. Try the contractor locator above.Bob Boan
You can choose to do what you want, but you cannot choose the consequences.0
@Ironman has the most likely problem -- but are you quite sure that the glass has no water? It can sometimes be deceptive and actually be full of water. Too full, in fact. This can also shut off a steam boiler if there is enough of too much.
Either way -- you probably need a pro steam person (not all plumbers are well qualified to handle steam systems). The "Find a contractor" above -- or just tell us where you are.Br. Jamie, osb
