: Hello, boy is the internet great or what!
: I have a RayPak Boiler in 1/2 my duplex. The model is H-0090B-CJDRABA.
: We just had it serviced because it was starting and stopping about every 3 minutes and pressure didn't seem to build. The bill was $274 after he cleaned it and check it out.
: He then stated that it is running but he doesn't know how long and gave us an estimate for another $649. He stated that an Ignitor Module (Hwluvlow) was melted and would be $309, an HSI Igniter (GEM14151) needed to be replace for $113. A relief valve (GEM147040) for $142, something else 18113 for $33, and a roll out unit for about 50 but he was unsure.
: The boiler is about 15 or so years old and I believe that I had the HSI Ignitor replaced about 3 years ago.
: Does this sound right? I am unfortunetly out of town and he had to deal with my wife who is less that mechanical.
: Can this boiler still run with all the problems above?
: Are these parts something I can do myself (I have build many a car myself in the past and this doesn't look too bad) or is it recommended to have pro do the work.
: Just seems quite expensive for a repair. My entire furnace in the upper with duct work was only 3k and it is 89% Eff.
: Thanks for your time, what a great site, look forward to hearing from someone, anyone :)
: Tony Berger, stuck it Raleigh but it is warmer than Wisconsin.
