Just replaced the crushed Oil Line from the Oil tank to the furnace.
(Got crushed by falling wood pile in celar (dont ask). Furnace runs
fine, doesn't over pressurize etc. However circ pump doesn't start.
Since we just moved into the house, we turned on a hot water heater we
found in the celar that had the circuit breaker turned off. Wanted to
use that while we waited to get the oil line replaced. My thought is
that since the hot water tank was on, the circ pump on the furnace
wont start because their's hot water already in the line? Just doesn't
sound right. Turned off the water pump for the night hopping the
furnace circ pump will eventually kick in. Am I way off base? Furnace
didn't run for about 3 weeks. How can i force circ pump on to see if
it's not frozen up (it looks like about 10 years old. Any ideas would
be greatly appreciated.
Dont have any idea on how to blead the lines, read that in another
It could be a control switch keeping it from coming on true. Try tracing back
from the motor with a voltage meter and see where it leads. See if you have
juice before and after each control. go from there
Not true. Home Depot does sell circulators (at least here in S.E. PA). I
know they carry B&G I'm not sure what else.
Lowes sells B&G as well as Taco. A Taco 007 is prolly all you'd need (If,
of course, that's your problem).
