2008 E-Classic 2300 Leaking
« on: November 06, 2015, 07:07:45 AM »
My e-classic 2300 has developed a 2 inch horizontal crack and is leaking water, I had a very experienced welder try to make a repair and the metal is so thin is just blows right through. Dealer wants pictures for Central Boiler, they have been sent and waiting for response. I really like how this furnace works and after a steep learning curve it did the job.

I would appreciate some feedback from 2400 owners if they are happy and if they would purchase another Central Boiler or would they opt for a different make & model, Thanks Paul

The crack is on the right side as facing the boiler about 3 inches from the door and 2 inches long in the bend just above where the brick were installed. I took some pictures but can't really see it. Tried to weld that aint happening, I set a new 2400 in its place today.

I scrutinized the 2400 while I was "browsing" at my dealer.  A completely different machine than your 2008 2300. 
My father once said, "This is my son who wanted to grow up and become a doctor.  So far, he's only become a doctor."

There are quite a few changes since 2008, Many improvements that needed to be done. Should be up & running by the weekend.

When a 5/16" thick boiler vessel shows a pinhole leak on the "dry" side you normally find that the "wet" side has an eroded area the size of a quarter. The weldor needs to replace that whole area in order to seal the leak so it will last. The type of rod will make a difference as well.

The material is 1/16 or less and who's to say I make a patch repair and it just starts leaking somewhere else. Didn't want to go through the winter always wondering when the leak is going to happen.

I would need to send it back to the factory, $600.00 shipping $150.00 for inspection and from what one dealer told me estimate $3500.00 for a complete re-furbish. I have seen an e- classic 2008 vintage 2300 that has been refurbished and it looked like an excellent repair was done. Not sure length of repair time but with winter right around the corner I didn't feel comfortable waiting.
