I have a 203ncl-tei2 boiler installed in danvers Massachusetts. This town is at sea level, not 2000k miles up. This boiler also has a failed tejurland (universal control) powerventer motor on it that is only humming, not spinning. I Looked for a dead animal, or nest that would stop the squirrel cage connected to the motor from spinning freely and it was clear. Ontop of the boiler we have a factory automatic damper assy. Johnson controls or similar. I call burnham and ask what the original power venter model number is and they tell me what some pros may already know, (i didnt), that the tei2 in the model number is actually (t)taco, (el)elevation, (2) 2 is 2,000 ft
.Note:he was not.100% sure about the el. He was definetly sure PV would be in the model number and it was not tejurland. There is no chimney on this house, never was. The Power venter wall thimble outside is very old definetly older than the 1 year old motor that failed. Burnham also said this is not a boiler that can be converted to a powerventer which is something i do not understand because he said if it does not have pv in the model number it should not have one. Period. I am not questioning Burnham they help me out on a regular basis but no one is perfect. I have in the past converted a boiler with a factory reccomended power venter after a customer lost the chimney. I called burnham and got lucky they had an option for that specific boiler i was working on that day. i also remember seeing it in the install manual as an addendum or seperate manual, but i am not 100% sure if it was burnham or U.S. Boiler.
Is this a fact with U.S. Boiler?
Anyone have experience with this?
What are the ramifications of an elevated boiler installed at sea level? Other than it taking longer to produce heat? , burnham said the elevation was not a big deal as its been working fine for almost 20 years.
If i can not find another awnser, i will have to tell the customer they need a new boiler or i will have to walk away. Thank you in advance for your help.
