I have a 1983 Bryant gas boiler (235 model), radiator set-up. I noticed
a drip this season, in the front. I pulled the front cover and about
2/3 the way up, on the right front, is this square plate, about 1 1/2"
square. There is a small threaded rod sticking out that turns but does
not tighten up. It is dripping from this. What is it? It is not a blow
off valve, that is on top. Thanks in advance! David
Thanks for the help. I am a system engineer; NOT a mechanical,
electrical, or chemical one. I am responsible for portable machining
equipment to refurb it, upgrade it, and take it to nuclear power plants
to do repairs. I am a job shop/prototype machinist by trade and have
done machining for 16 years. I CAN work on stuff and DO! I appreciate
your "engineer" comment Bubba, but right now I need to get my boiler
fixed but when I get my boiler fixed, I will be glad to trade witty
banter with you "Bubba". OK?. Does anyone else out there have a
solution to my problem?
I did pull the piece out and it is some sort of spinning vane. Is
that something to do with circulation inside the boiler or ???
Do yourself a favor. Its starting to get cold out. Your heating system
for you home is on the fritz. Spend some of those millions you make as
a system engineer doing portable machining for nuclear power plants
and call a professional that knows what he's doing. Its quite clear
you dont. Hell, Ive worked on hundereds of boilers (including your
Bryant) and still havent figured out what you're talking about from
your description. Why risk your home and your familys health? We know
you can fix and make all kinds a shit. Bravo, Bravo. You're great!
However, this one you outta leave alone.
