I have a Hydrotherm boiler Model HC-125 serial # OY5784 I

Customer Question

I have a Hydrotherm boiler Model HC-125 serial # ***** I have been told that the gas valve for this boiler cannot be replaced or repaired because they are no longer manufactured. He then claimed that the gas is not getting through the valve but he tested it with the gas shut off. He tried to sell me another boiler. Is I true that the gas valve cannot be repaired or replaced?

That's nonsense. While it is true the gas valve can't be repaired a generic Honeywell replacement is widely available. Sounds like your plumber is trying to pick your pocket. I'd suggest you call another plumber.
