Lochinvar Knight D.O.A.


Hi. Bought a used Lochinvar boiler to heat my ranch house. Spent weekends in the summer putting in radiant tubing. Then called a contractor friend to come do the plumbing and hook up the boiler (model 285). He's a pro so no worry about his competence. He told me that even his HVAC guy could only come poke around on this boiler.

There is no sign of life. The LCD screen is as blank as can be.

We checked the wiring. There is power to the unit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, George

A boiler is something I would not touch let alone buy if it's used.

Save a nickle spend ten dollars.

Thanks for the manual and recommendations.
Thinking of putting in a hot water heater to do the radiant while we resolve the boiler.
