primus base board heating
« on: January 29, 2013, 08:59:00 AM »
I,m having trouble with my primus boiler. I've had it for almost 20 years with no trouble .  I was wondering if there is anybody in central California that works on them.  It shut down from boiling with out the pump running and is completly dead now.
thanks  Jleo

If the pump fails the boiler will not fire on a Primus find out if you need a pump or control panel I have quite a few Primus parts, Fwiw the BlueBird Bus forum is the best place on the net to ask questions about a Primus system they have the answers Primus is a simple system to work on I loved mine

good luck

Hi jleo,

Welcome to the forum!  Did you have any luck with this?  Do you still need assistance?

Kind Regards, Phil

Hi Jleo,

Welcome!

We were wondering if you found any help with your boiler yet?

Usually when a circulator pump fails, the boiler will tripp a high limit safty switch

and you may have to manually reset it to refire the boiler.

Good Luck

On a Webasto, these conditions will burn the high limit fuse, which then needs to be replaced, and back in business.

Let us know how you make out!

happy coaching!

If he needs one he can download a manual from Alde the owners of Primus now they are simple to work on but very seldom ever need it  

The regulator is the touchy part if he replaced it with a look alike off the self they won't fire the pressure has to be the correct lbs there is no high limit fuses 

I would take a guess and say he lost the ground or a relay and relays for those are hard to find here uselessly those have to be ordered
