So this is part of the pipe that was in the exhaust system for my beloved Hurricane heater. Clearly, a problem. The pipe and insulation had both sort of crumbled into the opening, blocking any flow at all. While the guys were at it, I had them just cut this part of the pipe out, as it added 2 completely unnecessary 90 degree turns (and as Floyd says “Nine 90 degree turns make a plug”). Well, we had five in the system, which strikes me as extra ridiculous. This photo is the two turns we’ve now eliminated.
Unfortunately, I’m still getting the “Flame Out” fault, so I think Jeff’s next move is to cut into the 90s in the engine room to see if they’re clogged. At the same time we’ll probably add a cleanout, because if we’ve got the setup we currently have, it may as well be serviceable. ****LATER. That’s all done. The exhaust is clean and the d*mn thing still won’t run. Back to the engine room.
