About Us


Welcome to Burnham Boilers Info. My name is Chris. I had created this site to inform you more about Burnham Boilers. Choosing a good boiler for your home is a very important decision that you have to make. With so much information listed in the world wide web about Burnham boilers, it is hard for you to pick your choice. Reason being, they are very unorganized. I am here to help you fix that and guide you to finding your choice. My motto is to help you make a better informed decision. Happy reading!

Thank you!

    I have a Burnham gas fired boiler (Spirit) and a boiler mate. My issue is that the radiant floor heat will not cool down. The unit is not running and the pipes connecting the boiler and furnace are cool to the touch. The only line that is hot is the hot water line coming from the boiler. Help

    I am ready to replace my boiler. I can receive a $1,900 rebate if I can determine it is 30 years old or older. However, there is no serial number on the boiler. It is a V33 unit. Is there any other way to determine the age of this boiler to see if I qualify for the rebate? Thanks.

  25. Dave Barnett Says:

    We have a Burnham Boiler RS-109 and Beckett oil burner AE-579715, 1988 vintage.
    They have served us very well.
    We have had it serviced professionally every year since we’ve owned the house (19+ years).
    We’re due again withing a week or so. We’re starting to smell fumes, but it is not setting off the CO/smoke detector.
    I think it needs parts, but I think our dealer just wants to sell us a new unit and says they’re not available.
    Please provide a link for a service manual so I identify possible parts and to find price and availability.
    I am not a burner technician but have a hands-on engineering background so I am capable of assessing the situation.
    Please advise ASAP.

  26. Timothy Jacobson Says:

    I have the Revolution RV7 gas boiler that was put into service in 2007. For the past two years the induced draft fan has been getting louder and louder. Looking on the forums, many people have the same issue. Because of the tremendous cost of replacing the entire unit under part number 6116056, is there anyway that it can be purchased through a direct way to reduce the high cost?

  27. Norman Ewing Says:

    Have Burnham Holiday 225,000 BTU Would like to
    know the Pressure specifications for optimum performance.


  28. DK Says:

    Had Burnham 130 BTU steam boiler manufactured 2004.
    This year top of the front section develop whole 6 inch wide and 2 inch wide.
    With “old product” this would not be even thinkable!!!!!!!!!!
    Question is, how is this possible for boiler last only 11 years? Does it means that, manufactures design their product deliberately fail after certain years in service? What went wrong, that this kind of extracting of customer money become possible in US?

  29. Chris Says:

    looking for a manual for a Burnham 204NCL-TEI2 boiler.
    If no manual is available, hopefully someone can give the the OEM number for a replacement thermocouple.

    thanks in advance…..

  30. Ed Zeswick Says:

    I bought a Sportsman 2000W generator to run my 2 year old Burnham Series 2 gas boiler when the electricity goes out. Unfortunately it will not run. Once the generator is connected, the green indicator light on the boiler turns on for a few seconds, then goes out and the red light comes on. When I return to the house electricity, all is fine. Any thoughts? The generator will run a household lamp no problem.

  31. Nonno Frats Says:

    I have a burnham mod.# IN5 gas steam boiler.
    There are no visable leaks at any of the radators
    or at the boiler or any of the connecting pipes, but I have to add water to the system more often than I should as far as I know. Do you have any solutions,I would sure appreciate it.Thank you.

  32. dennis s Says:

    Have a new k2-120 page 11 of operating manual talks about excessive boiler cycles
    What ratio of run time hours to boiler cycles would be excessive? called Burnham and they would not answer. Also in past month unit run times average 19-20 hours per day. Is this normal.

  33. James sullivan Says:

    I am a service tech who tried all weekend to contact someone from burnham about a freedom boiler , model fom 120, that has a error code of B52 and it’s not in the book or anywhere on the web, What is this code

    I need to know the date of manufacture of a Burnham boiler model V-18A-T, SN 22126104. How do I determine the date of manufacture?


  35. arlene Says:

    I have a burnham oil boiler. One plumber told me thath it can be converted; another plumber told me that Burnham sent out directives specifically saying that the seal in the oil burner is not adequate for gas. Which opinion is correct? The burner is relatively new.

  36. Chris Cook Says:

    Question on boiler sizing. If I’m adding indirect hot water tank (50 gal) to the design of my new system, how much do I add in Btu to the house heat load to determine the proper sized boiler? I’m looking at the 95% eff condensing units. House Manual J load it 68,000 Btu. 50 Gal indirect water heater says 50,000 Btu. So do I add none, some or all of the 50k Btu of the DHW to the 68k house load to size my new boiler?

  37. Patrick Jones Says:

    Hello Chris,

    I have a Burnham hot water furnace model V14AT with a tankless water heater. It has been leaking for sometime and rusted pretty good so I wish to replace it. I have the original owners manual and the part numbers listed for tankless heater V1-1 is 8032201 (GPM 3.5) and V1.2 8032202 (GPM4). I need the tankless heater, blank heater cover plate and heater/cover plate gasket (prefer black not red). Where can I and purchase these replacement parts? Thank You in advance.

  39. Tony Russo Says:

    I have a Burnham ES2 gas burner. I believe it is about 3 or 4 years old. I bought the house two years ago. I tried turning the heat on yesterday and it does not start. It tries to start (Sta SPARK),there is a pilot flame and it gives up and re-tries. Gas is definitely on because our stove and hot water heater are functioning. I heard there was some known issue with this unit. Is that true? Would it still be under warranty?

  40. mike gardner Says:

    I have a CHG 150 gas hot water boiler, initially it came on, the fan was variable speed, it did a diag. the fan would stop and start, the flame would come on, the fan would stop, flame would go out. I first get 0-60 then A-58, I would say it’s my board, it’s not detecting the fan, or regulating the air flow, how long do you guarantee my main control board, I have only used it 3 seasons, I notice there is no telephone number, no one to talk to ? that is puzzling ! I’m concerned.

  41. mike gardner Says:

    how much is a new computer control ?

  42. mike gardner Says:

    it looks like my computer crapped out after 9 months of running. approximately 3 months for 3 seasons, 9 months. I think you should replace it for free ! or reinstall the software and reboot the unit. problem is there is no one to contact. do you have a factory rep. who will get my unit up and running. it’s not even broken in yet !

    I have a Burnham V74 Boiler, Serial number 27-030552 and it is leaking water. What BTU (Burnham) do i need to replay it with? What model number? Thanks

  54. Bill McDonald Says:

    Four years ago we had an Burnham alpine high efficiency condensing holier. Ever since it was installed the exhaust vibrates with a hollow sound. I read that means it is running lean and needs a combustion test. So far I haven’t found a service technician that knows how to correct and adjust the holier.
    Please advise who, on or near Cape Cod, can help with this problem.
    Thank you in advance
