Burham Holiday boiler furnace


I'll say this as nicely as I can


SHUT IT DOWN AND SHUT IT DOWN NOW!!!

With burners not shutting down you could be low on water, expansion tank faulty, limits not working, aqua-stat not sencing temp. I would ask you to call a pro. If the temps get too high this boiler can blow.

I understand this is a DIY site and while all for that when a boiler is raising the pressure and actuating the TPV then this is serious and not a DIY project.
