Does anyone have a plumber/technician they would recommend in the Worcester, MA (Central Massachusetts for more keyword alerts) area who knows how to troubleshoot / maintain the old parlor heaters?
I have one that won't stay lite. I changed out the thermal couple and it will light for about 20 minutes at a time; however, it eventually goes out. I'm guessing the next step is to replace the gas valve, but I hate playing with anything that involves gas and I think it'll be tough to find the exact part.
Any advice or contacts would be greatly appreciated!
If no one answers you here, I'd attend NWCLA (Northern Worcester County Landlord Assn) and Worcester POA. Someone there will know
Joe, try calling Schlamos Appliance Im Worcester. (Not the one in Millbury). Most plumbers seem to recommend them for the old gas on gas units so I'd expect they also work on the parlor units.
Thanks Ann and Tim!
Tim, I've bought used appliances from Schlamos, but didnt' think to call them for parts and help troubleshooting. Thanks for the advice.
Ann, I'm meeting with a seller tomorrow night, but hope to finish up in time to catch the Black Diamond event!
Joe, did you have any luck finding someone to fix this for you? As luck would have it I just had a unit go and called Schlamos to sechedule a fix and apparently they stopped servicing these units about a year ago. Now scrambling to find someone in the area ...
Hey Tim, yes I did. I'll send you a PM.
Hey Joseph - I see this old thread from last year where you mention you find someone in Worcester, MA who knows how to troubleshoot / maintain the old parlor heaters? I am looking at the moment for someone myself. Would you be able to pass me that contact info?
Hey Daniel, I just shot you his info in a PM. Good luck!
Hi @Joseph Rotti , like the others, I would appreciate a recommendation for someone that can work on parlor heaters. Thanks!
Joe, would you mind Publically posting your heater service provider? I'm really desperate to get one of my apartments heaters fixed please PM me when you have a moment!
