I have a 1930's vintage Fitzgibbons 400 Series hot water boiler with dual
Honeywell 10 Series controls and a V155 gas valve.
The boiler won't fire but the pilot light is lit and the thermostats are
calling for heat. I trouble shot the problem down to the pilotstat/thermocouple.
If I jumper it out of the circuit the boiler fires.
My plumber is out of town for the holiday, but I spoke with him by telephone.
To trouble shoot the problem any more will require disassembling part of
the firebox, so I'm going to leave that to the pros. My task is to hunt down
a source for parts.
Any suggestions of a shop that would carry replacement parts for these old
I'm planning on replacing the boiler in a year or so, so I don't want to
spend a lot to fix the problem.
Also, is there an easy replacement for the pilotstat system with a more modern
one that will work with my old mechanical gas valve?
