On Peak Switch Getting Heated

Post  Mukul Jain on Tue Apr 01, 2014 4:35 am


The on peak boiler electrical switch was getting heated in my pulsacoil 2000 boiler. Plus I was getting a foul smell (as in case of a wire / rubber burning) from near the switch.
I called up a local electrician and when he opened the switch, one of the wires was burnt. He rewired it and checked the switch and said everything looked fine.
But even now, the switch is getting heated.
Does someone has any idea what can be the issue here?

Thanks in advance

Could be a rod stat not switching off.
Some units have a relay too.
Needs checking out ASAP.
