this is my second post regarding this problem. it seem on my last post people didnt understand my question and wen ta a tangient, with no info pertaining to my post. anyway, I have a white-rodgers aquastat on my peerless series wb boiler with a domestic hot water coil. I have TWO dials on the aquastat 1 high limit 2 circulator I was asking the optimum settings on these TWO dials and got all answers pertaning to 3 dial systems. the TWO dials I have 1 high limit 2 circulator have 2 small arms apiece that can be set individually or together. I'm having trouble with the hot water so I want to make sure they are set correctly.some people mentioned a diff setting but I dont have one only high limit and circulator. sorry for being so repetitive but I want the correct info out there so I can get some pertinent info. Thanx

    High limit and circ settings

    Normal settings would be high limit @180 and circ @160. The two seperate hands on each dial should be the diff. for each.

    No Hot Water

    If you have a direct coil built into your boiler for hotwater - it may be time to have it cleaned? Overtime the coil will foul and loose heat transfer capablities because of either hard water or just scale buildup from deposits left behind by water. Your service company will know.

    OK - so you already cleaned your coil

    So the other postings.

    aquastat settings and on the white Rodgers, both the HI limit and the LO limit are adjustable. In addition they are fully subtractive differentials, not additive/subtractive like Honeywell.

    No offense, but if you're not following this it's best to leave things alone.
