I have a Hydrotherm Boiler that needs a pressure switch

Customer Question
I have a Hydrotherm...

I have a Hydrotherm Boiler that needs a pressure switch BM8026. Model of Boiler is HI-165B. Can you help me

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

The Suburban Propane repairman was here today and says he needs the PS-1 low fire pressure switch. I had no heat last night and none now because he cannot get it to work.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

It is not the thermostats. When the boiler starts, which it down, the fan runs and then the ignitor will usually click to light the burner. Only the fan and the circulating pump run.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No the Suburban propane guy will do the work. I need the part.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Can you get me the part???
