I purchased a Burnham Alpine 105 about 21 months ago. (and I'm not happy)
Have had alot of issues with this unit. My current issue is what Burnham calls "soft lockout"
Boiler will come on as normal, and run through its cycle and ignite the boiler.
Then the water temperature will begin to rise in 2 degree increments, 92, 94, 96 etc.
Then when it reaches arround 100 degrees plus or minus it will do this: 92, 94, 96, 98, 100, 98, 96, 100 then soft lockout
because it says the temperature rise was to fast.
I cleaned the combustion chamber as per manual. (very little to clean)
Circulation pump is fine and working proper. I cleaned the Ignitor and temp sensor as per instructions in the manual. (still same problem)
I ordered new replacement Ignitor & sensor and installed them this morning. (Same results)
Does any one have any idea how to cure this problem? Burnham is no help, just try to get advise from these people.
You would think that they would go out of their way to help there customers.... NOT!
I do believe that I made a grave mistake of purchasing a BURNHAM ALPINE 105 boiler, and would never recommend to anyone
the purchase of one of these products. Since the installation by a Certified licensed plumber, I've put over $1,500 in repairs & plumber labor expenses
into this boiler.
My intution tells me that it's probably a malfunctioning water temperature sensor, or a computer malfunction.
It's starting to get cold here in Alaska, the temp. is dropping down into the low 30's at night. And my Plumber is booked until Sept. 30th.
