Burnham Oil Boiler Failed


Installed 11 yrs ago and leaks badly. Belatedly hear they were badly made. Currently have no heat till I decide what to do. Did the company do anything for anyone with a problem? Any Info or suggestions appreciated. Am talking to contractors for estimates, but it;s soo expensive to do over.

The V7 is known to have a cracking problem. And Burnham will supply another block. You just have to pay for the labor.
Some V8's had the same problem. And Burnham will supply the block for free, again you have to pay for labor.

I hear, they are giving MPO's as replacements in some situations.

Your contractor, should contact the local Burnham distributor.

Your welcome.
Ya, some contractors won't tell you about the warranty. They make more money by selling you a whole new boiler.
