Customer Question
I have a munchkin...

I have a munchkin boiler that is giving me a F09 error. I have tried to reset but this did not solve the problem I have an extra flame rectification probe. What do I need to do to install the new probe?

Contractor's Assistant: How old is the appliance? Have you gotten error messages before?

Unit is 10 years old I got an F10 error 2 years ago and reset the unit and it worked fine

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

Yes

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

I am not experienced with working on this unit Can I replace the flame rectification probe without any experience?

I have a flame rectification probe on hand. Is that a part I can safely replace on my own? Can you guide me through the replacement? I do not have any experience working on a boiler.
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 9 months ago

Yes just remove the cover panels and you will see a spark plug type wire to the flame probe, just remove the screws to it and it will pull out and you can install the new one...see image here.
