    Final update – I hope!!

    I called for help. The guy that came out was great. He knew I was trying to fix it myself so he just told me what I needed to do. Also when he walked in the house and...

    Dana, the pump is inside the unit so you can’t see it. It sits between the Heat Exchanger and the expansion tank, so that’s why I assumed the water flow was away from the system. Also, that pipe is...

    Before the heater came on this morning the pressure was between 8 & 9#. The display went from 0 (standby) to A and the pressure dropped to 0. None of my manuals show an A. Immediately after the...

    I was afraid of that. My pipes run along the outside of the house and in the attic. The outside should be easy, the attic not so much. I'm assuming a leak would be easiest to find with the boiler...

    Well this didn't work as well as I had hoped. One cycle was fine, pressure never exceeded 25#. However, the next time the heater came on the pressure was 0. It cycled the 9-64 (Burner blocked –...

    Yes, there is a shut-off valve that is now shut. The pressure is 14#. I will report back in a couple of days after the heater has cycled several times. Thanks.

    There is no outdoor reset control. The Prestige Solo 110 Installation and Maintenance manual states that 170 is the ‘Maximum Setpoint’ for Radiators. I suppose I can change from 180 to 170 via the...

    Sorry it’s been a while, but this is driving me crazy. I was hoping to find some consistency in the pressure, but there is none. One day it stays below 25# and the next day it’s back to 30.

    BadgerBoilerMN,

    If I understand your comments, I need to turn down the fill-valve to match the expansion tank baseline pressure which now is 12. It was set at 14#. I live in a one story house...

    I tested my expansion tank and the pressure was 14#. I lowered it to 12 and the highest the pressure got when heated was 28. That's still over 25 which is supposedly the max, but at least it didn't...

    Dana,

    Thanks for your response. I live in the San Francisco area in a 2,200 sq ft single story home with European radiators. It RARELY gets below 30 F so the 110 could be too large. I was not...

    I'm a newbie to this forum, but I can't seem to get an answer from the Prestige folks. I have a Prestige Solo 110 Water Boiler which is a little over 5 years old. The pressure went high (+30#) last...
