This morning our heat would not come on even though the thermostats were calling for heat. We have a Heatmaker hot water and baseboard heat which is probably about 15 years old. It will not heat our domestic water or baseboard water. This happened last year when we had the cold snap in January. I have inspected the vent pipe outside for obstruction, turned off the gas and turned back on. Bled the lines, etc.
When I turn off the power and turn back on, 30 seconds later the blower comes on and there is some clicking. It stays on for 10 seconds and goes back off. I've done this with the thermostats calling for heat and with the hot water faucet on and it will not heat water.
When this happened last year, it just started working again after two days.
Does extremely cold air have anything to do with it? The manual has some things regarding the stack switch not working correctly and cross conamination in the combustion chamber creating a "lockout". It seems that the thing won't stay on because it is sensing a problem or something. It's 10 degrees out and I'd like to take a hot shower. Can anyone solve this?
