    Re: Garage door opener

    That's all true. I cracked it open, and in reply to it being built by liftmaster or chamberlain, I can see that the workings are anything but a liftmaster-chamberlain design. There is a massive AC...

    Re: Garage Door Opener sensors

    I figured it all out. To anyone recommending that I call Chamberlain, I am aware that they don't offer information on pre-1995 openers. Any operator with more than three electrical terminals will...

    Re: haunted garage?

    The security code is not the issue unless your referring to the 4 digit pin on the exterior keypad that some GDO's have. JLMCDANIEL, Garage door openers made after 1993 do not use dipswitch codes...

    Garage Door Opener sensors

    Hi all, I am refurbishing a Chamberlain "Power Lift" from 1997. I can't figure out where the safety sensor terminals are, seeing that it has four screws on the back, two being used for the wall push...

    Re: Garage door opener

    Thanks for the replies. I have done loads of research with Fimbel-Paunet. And this is not Liftmaster at all. I am aware of how common Liftmaster/Chamberlain units are, and the assembly does not...

    Garage door opener

    Hi Everyone, I have been baffled by a garage door opener that I came across. It's a 1994 Fimble Paunet Co. Power Lift, and it's chain driven. The bearing around the sprocket is just about gone, so...

    That's right, In most cities you must have venting. If not, then you may get your exact problem. It is also average to have older homes without venting. Is it a granite or field stone foundation? ...

    Every thing you mentioned was tried. it was some sort of 6' long handled gardening tool our neighbor loaned us. Got plenty of leverage on the tank, but not the Anode. We emptied the tank all the...

    Re: Anode Rod

    I have seen those available for Rheem units. Is there a chance the hot draw-out side may also be seized in? I would imagine so.

    Anode Rod

    Hi All,
    This is a general problem I have heard many times and am now having difficulty with it myself. I have a Rheem Fury gas water heater, 90 gallons, etc. It's from 2005. I decided earlier...

    Re: Pneumatic controls

    We have counted a strange ratio where there are roughly 10 more thermostats than actuators. There is one air compressor that knocks, and has one burnt motor. The diaphragms in the actuators seem to...
  12. Re: Can I add to existing hydronic radiant heat system?

    Your using your hot water heater as a hydronic boiler? If it's a boiler, then that makes perfect sense. Yes, it is entirely possible. Just run a separate zone out that way. But there are two...

    Pneumatic controls

    Hi Everybody,
    I posted recently about this. There is a confusing controls issue I know of, and I can't understand it. It involves a quincy air compressor, three Hurst LPW boilers, and many...

    I have some trouble understanding you. You mean to say that you have a hot water gravity system? Then yes, you can convert. But you mention Burnham. would that be the brand of boiler or radiator?...

    Re: Heat Pump vs. Gas Furnace

    My advice is to go with either a geothermal heat pump (if your geographic area permits it) or a hydronic system.

    Having a hot air furnace is just fine, but they provide a poorer quality of...

    Re: baseboard heat

    Those Kick space heaters sound like a good idea. One thing I would do is to ensure easy access to the heater as they do have moving parts, and moving parts require maintenance.

    Re: Cutting bolier out of hot water loop

    Walt, many times myself and others have explained the whole indirect hot water heater concept. It's the best option. I would certainly take Dobb's advice.
  19. Re: Outdoor temp sensor to control oil burner

    I'm not sure if there is such a thing for a mid-efficiency oil fired system. I know that high efficiency gas boilers have this pre-installed. (some do, anyway). But to take that out of a different...

    Re: noise inside wall (baseboard heat)

    Pex is a great option. If it's loosely secured every foot to every two feet or so, it can operate very well and nearly silently. However, If it's secured to the studs every five feet, for example,...
  21. Re: Installing Electric Tankless Heater with Solar

    I would certainly go with that Boilermate option that johnjh2o suggested. An electric tankless water heater is the worst by far.

    Re: uneven heating and cooling

    It's difficult to balance hot air systems. I have a similar issue. I have a Coleman gas fired furnace, and the blower can't seem to deliver air pressure to some of the distant rooms. A variable...
