Relay Keeps Sticking

elvisman Member Posts: 3
I have a Valiant Gas fired boiler and the relay keeps sticking, it will open but not all the way so i have to manually open it a tad bit so the boiler will fire.. The AquaStat relay is Model# L8148E... Can that small relay be relaced or do i need a whole new control? Thank you for taking the time and consideration to read my post

    Replace it

    Or it may stick when your not there and you will come home to frozen pipes.

    Here is a nice replacement and it has a heat manager program built in.

    That Beckett Relay Contol is Bad-****

    There isnt a more simpler solution than replaceing the whole control? I mean thats 1 mean Beckett control but could maybe the contacts need to be cleaned up a bit? Just wanna try the obvious first before i purchase  anything?

    That relay can

    be replaced with an Honeywell L8148J Universal relay. As was posted it could hang up again replace it.
