Timer for AA130

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

You might be better running twice a hour if you can. Mine goes every half hour for 30-45 seconds. With the AA, you are gonna get some unburnt coal in the summer time but that should disappear in the winter to completely burnt. I try to keep my eye open at flea markets and yard sales for a original Honeywell timer but haven't lucked out yet.

$20 for a $170 (plus shipping) timer. Fantastic!!!

They sell the clock motors separately. I have one that came with a timer I bought, when I get a chance I will post a picture.

I paid about $30. You got a great price. The clock motors are very easy to replace. I had to do it last year when mine went on the fritz. I couldn't understand why the domestic hot water was so blistering hot. Then I realized that the timer was stuck in the closed position and the unit was heating using the hi limit aquastat only :!:
