Isn't the boiler shown on the link provided one of the ones recalled?

    If you look

    at the Dunkirk and these Crown units you'll see they look exactly the same.

    The Dunkirks {sold under many names} were too tight in the chamber and the far left and right burner flames would be hitting the side wall---IMPINGEMENT

    making CO soarrrr

    we have one in our lab to show students, we get a CO of about 357ppm if memory serves
  • Dunkirk & Crown not the same

    If you read, this is the red and gray units thus, after the Dunkirk (ECR) days. These were manufactured and assembled by Crown under thier parent company, Burnham. The problem is only on a couple models with specific BTU inputs. The problem is in the air/orifice/gas valve pressure settings. Adequate combustion air, proper venting, good install and no problems have been reported. Lack any of those and a few boiler install problems have shown up. Good for Crown, they discovered it and are being proactive. Beter safe than sorry.

    punch up

    the guts-cutaway from the Dunkirk and from these, they sure the same to me, design wise.

    If more tech tested CO levels at start up of new equipment we'd see a huge increase in calls or recalls.

    Many don't even have the testers.

    They think

    that everything is tested at the factory.

    You and I know that they aren't.

    Even if they were, that would only indicate that they were safe at the factory. Lots of things can and do happen between the factory and the final destination of any appliance. No two structures are exactly alike and the only way to verify safe operation is to test.
