The Friendly Bacteria Waste Eliminator
On this page I am replacing a Taco 007 boiler circulator pump on an old Peerless gas fired boiler, click on any image to see a larger image with instructions.
|I found that the pump was bad on this Peerless boiler. So Now I will show you how to replace a Taco 007 circulator Pump. Make sure the power is off. You can't trust the switch at the boiler and breakers and fuses are almost always marked wrong. test the wire it's self to be sure the power is really off. Please note, all images are thumb nails, just click on them to see a larger image.|
|This is the old one, See all the rust along the back of it. The boiler needs to be drained first, so turn off the valve that supplies water to the boiler|
|Then hook up a hose to the drain at the bottom of the boiler. On this boiler it is on the right side but some of them are in the back where you can't reach them. What a pain this can be.|
|Now that the water is drained. you will need two wrenches 1 5/8" ant the other 11/16" most pump bolts are this size. Sometimes the bolts will not come loose and you have to cut them off. And in this very tight working area that can be a real Bi__h Once again, If you don't fully understand what I am saying, Stop And call Plumbing And Heating professional.|
|with the two wrenches loosen and remove all 4 nuts and bolts. then lift up on the pipe a little and pull the pump out.|
Remove the screw remove the wire cover. Again Make
sure the power is off. there are only two wires one
black and one white or yellow. remove the 2 wire nuts.
they should just un screw.
