gurutech67:

When was it installed?

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

3 wks ago

gurutech67:

When did it quit working?

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

Today was the first day we tried to fire it up.

gurutech67:

Ok I have just located a manual have you bled the gas line yet and recycled.

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

Yes but I don’t even hear the igniter clicking.

gurutech67:

If the igniter is not clicking then the combustion blower proving switch is not engaged. Do you show any fault codes?

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

No and I also contacted Argo for the color codes and they were all clear.

gurutech67:

By the way you won't hear the Igniter clicking it has hot surface Ignition.

gurutech67:

I'm not sure what Argo is, but there are no blinking lights on the IBC in the boiler?

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

So then never mind the combustion blower?

gurutech67:

Does the combustion blower run?

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

No blinking lights

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

I don’t think so

gurutech67:

Are any lights lit up on the IBC?

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

Yes (green)

gurutech67:

Do you have the installation and startup manual for the boiler?

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

Yes

gurutech67:

Pages 77 through 82 have a trouble shooting flow chart, it gives if it’s doing x then do x and so on?

gurutech67:

It is easier to have you read through that than to type it in a chat for each step. I am curious how the contractors are not doing this for you though.

JACUSTOMER-e4rujsla- :

He told me to call Weil McClain service tech to come to my house to do the fire up but no one is available for weeks.

gurutech67:

That’s unusual; you must have contracted these folks yourself versus hiring a mechanical contractor to do it all inclusive.
