Thank you all for the reponses. As you might have guessed, my boss is
so tight he squeaks when he walks. I've made such a stink about the
age, inefficiency, and above all safety problems that I've been moved
elsewhere within the company as of yesterday. I hate putting these
relics back in service knowing what potential castastrophe awaits.
I've found limit switches shorted across, squirrel cages so full of
dust that they barely function, and even have been told to ignore
dime-sized holes in the exchanger. I'm about to report the whole bunch
soon if they don't start replacing the units rather than robbing parts
from vaccant units. I need this job, but I need to sleep at night,
BTW, I cleared the flue, and while rewiring every wire found that the
fan temp/timer contact wires were burnt through inside the 3/8" flex
conduit creating an unseen open. I also fabricated a new flame sheild
and screwed it in place. I lit the pilot and she fired right up. I
hate to say it, given the situation, but she runs better than many
I've worked on.
Believe me guys, I know how serious this is, and that as an industry
this INFURIATES you guys. I AM moving to correct the problem.
