replacing a thermistat

Post  nevsy1 on Mon Nov 12, 2012 4:38 am

good morning

i am about to replace a thermistat in my Pulsacoil 2000 which has been faulty.

may i ask, what is the difference between the "Thermostat Conversion Kit" and the " Rod Thermostat (7") " on the South East Green Energies Ltd website?

(i am unable to post links on the forum at the moment).

they look the same to me?

kind regards

Andrew

You use the kit if you have the old version PC 2000.
Which is fitted with an overheat button.
When fitting the kit you remove the over heat and join 2 wires together.
If you have not got the over heat button.
Just use the other ones.

Thank you Mike.

the "overheat button" is something that is on the circuit board? (i am 95% sure i do not have one - i seem to remember searching for it just over a year ago).

if i took the current thermistat out of the boiler, are there any distringuishing features that indicate that it is one or the other?

kind regards

It is a metal box like think.
With a probe which goes into a small copper tube sticking out of the unit.
All of which would be located in the top left quarter of your unit.
Try looking on Google for overheat stat for PC 2000 on Google.
