    Yes, that's a big problem.

    If the boiler is less than 10 years old, contact your local distributor and they will arrange for a replacement heat exchanger to be sent to you. I believe they will also give you a heat exchanger credit if you buy a new Triangle Tube boiler.

    If it's more than 10 years old, you are out of warranty and will have to replace it on your dime.

    Either way, combustion gases can now escape from the heat exchanger. Skull and crossbones

    Under no circumstances should this boiler be fired on pain of certain death. No kidding. Disconnect the gas and electricity.

    Those bolts have a very low tightening torque; like finger tight plus an additional turn. Any more than that, they will shear the stud as shown.
    Often wrong, never in doubt.

  • Looks like he removed the photos of the broken heat exchanger studs and his text that said this was happening to three boilers.
