    anyone got the hookup for plumbing parts?


    I'm looking for a stack switch for an oil heater, model # RA117A1047

    the cheapest I found it for is $133.15 shipped on amazon.com, or a local plumber will want a flat fee of $500 to buy their own and install it

    it sure can suck to sleep at night and put my tush on a cold toilet when there's no heat in the house

    oh, and does anyone know how difficult it is to replace it?

    it just looks like a couple screws remove it from the main piping, and screw terminals hold down like 6 wires or so...what could go wrong?

    It would be kinda funny if you somehow happened to ignite a full tank of home heating oil.....

    With the part number in hand - check FW Webb, or the local plumbing supply places.

    JeffL on this board helped me quite a bit with my boiler - might be worth giving him a PM.

    does anyone else know how difficult it is to install one?

    I talked to a couple friends and both of them told me to hire an HVAC tech to do it in case I f*ck it up.

    Do it yourself.

    Just make sure the breaker is off first.

    If you don't have the manual look up your boiler on line, and take a good look at the diagrams (a few times). Shut off the power (red switch plate - should be installed upside down, either in the boiler room, or at the top of the basement stairs - or the breaker) and the oil feed. Once you get the covers off the boiler it should be fairly self explanitary how to replace it. Digital pictures and hand made wiring diagrams if needed.

    Did you find one yet?

    I work at a HVAC company and can prob get you one at wholesale. Looks like a Honeywell part number....is it for a boiler or furnace?

    thanks for the tips guys, I ended up pulling the trigger on the one from Amazon, which ships from CT so it should get here pretty soon

    I'm at work right now, but I'll check for the model # when I get back up the business.

    we have heat!!!

    my friend and I went ahead and replaced the stack switch (you just disconnect the wires, unbolt/remove the old one, put in the new one, then screw down the wires) and there is finally heat coming off the radiators! the timing couldn't have been any better because while it was only in the 30's last week, tonight the temperature is 14 degrees...which would not only make it cold in the house, but would make it more likely that the pipes would freeze

    the only problem is, the radiator in the living room makes a rattling noise, and just sprays water out of the (overflow? overheat) valve

    also, when the contractor was working on the kitchen, he just unscrewed and detached the radiator altogether from the pipe coming out of the floor, so (even with the knob tightened all the way down) steam comes directly out of the pipe: is that steam toxic?

    can I just let the steam come out for a couple days?

    I can't quite wedge the radiator onto the pipe, so can I just get a cap on the pipe coming out of the ground and not use that radiator for the time being?
