Water feeder

heater40 Member Posts: 6
Hi I have a gas furnace and have an automatic feeder but I'm having a problem with the feeder stopping. Water just keeps getting put in the furnace and not stopping. How can I fix this?

    I am guessing that you have a Boiler that heats water which is used to heat the home ?
    As to the feeder: Do you have to replace the water in the feeder,or is it behaving like a jojo effect... Feeder turns on,Water feeds into the boiler and reduces the feeder volume,Stops for a little while, Then turns on again.... If this is the case you may have a bad Check valve.

    The only other thing i can think about is that you do have a furnace which is air based,It has a Humidifier which uses water to humidify the home which is normal.

    My question to you: Boiler with Radiators/Baseboards/Infloor heat...or Furnace blowing air from a Duct ?
