Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

What's the model of your boiler (you have a boiler not a furnace)?

Peerless Boiler, 2014 not sure of the model, would you rather I call
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 3 months ago

I can't help you if you can't provide the model number. A call won't help until I know what you have. Model number is ***** the rating tag on the boiler.

Also there was a payment glitch. Contact customer service to clear it up if you want to talk after you provide model number.

I CAN'T PROVIDE THE MODEL NUMBER - can you make a suggestion on the question I asked
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 3 months ago

There are dozens if not hundreds of Peerless models. All of them have different control systems. I completely blind here except for the info you provide. Since you can't tell what I need to help I'm opting out.

You need the model number, which I can provide, so talking would not be necessary. Can you make a suggestion on the question I asked about the temperature guide on the control button
