Okay then. My heater works *sometimes.*JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?Customer: For a few weeks. Let me give you the run down....JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: My heater works well all day, then at night, at some point, it stops working. Most mornings, I turn the thermostat off and then back to "heat" and it fire up. Less reliably lately, but it still mostly works.JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?Customer: I have been through the entire system and even replaced the thermostat (I didn't like the old one anyway.) I am not getting a code from the control board, I've re-seated all the thermostat wires to the control board and confirmed that the control board is getting the call for heat from the thermostat. (the fan runs for 90 seconds when I plug the furnace back in.)JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I can't be entirely sure that this isn't related to another issue I had a few weeks ago. It appears that the blower motor capacitor finally gave up. In that case the controller board gave me the code for limiter switch or flame roll out. I traced it back to the capacitor (the fan wouldn't start when called for) and it tested out of spec. I replaced it. Blower works great.

I have a Baxi Luna 310 Fi boiler (installed 7 years ago)

I have a Baxi Luna 310 Fi boiler (installed 7 years ago) which is short cycling. It starts up on demand but runs up the temperature within seconds and cuts out.I had just recently bled off one of the zones in order to remove air which had built up. I had not closed off the boiler valves when I did this and am wondering if I created an air build up / lock in the boiler. I have tried bleeding off the boiler at it's outlet valve but this did not resolve the problem.

My 3 year old steam boiler from sears is working well,

Hi - My 3 year old steam boiler from sears is working well, however the 2 Gorton "D" 1/4" Straight Air Valve thats installed pipes near the boiler began to leak. I replace the valves with similar ones but it didn't seem to remedy the issue. what can the issue be. Is the biker too powerful for the amount of radiators i have? Can that be causing a back flow of too much water? Thanks Shaun

From searching online, it looks like I have two HVAC return air vents in my TV room. They are extremely noisy if I am using air conditioning and I can hardly hear my TV, unless I put the volume loud (inconsiderate to neighbors). What can I do?
