Heating system circulator pump troubleshooting: here we list & describe other heating system controls that manage or impact heating boiler circulator pump operation. This article series discusses Circulator Pumps: how to find, inspect, diagnose, and repair problems with Hot Water Heating System Circulator Pumps or circulator pump relay switches and controls. This article series answers most questions about Heating System Boiler Controls on central heating systems to aid in troubleshooting, inspection, diagnosis, and repairs.

Other heating system controls related to hot water circulator pumps - three alternative ways to control hot water heat circulation
Variable Speed Hot Water Heating Circulator Pumps, Motors & Controls
Controls for this circulator pump included a knob on the circulator that adjusted a variable-speed circulator motor to select one of speeds operated by a four-speed motor - the circulator output rate could be set by the consumer or heating service technician.
By changing the circulator motor speed we can slow or speed the flow rate of hot water through the zone managed by the circulator. This provides another way to balance heat flow among multiple zones (and circulators) in a building.
This circulator, the Bell & Gossett SLC-25 Upstart Circulator was sold during the 1980's and is not currently available. But B&G offered similar replacements (such as the NRF-22) and currently variable speed circulators are available from Taco and Grundfos.
At CIRCULATORS VARIABLE SPEED we describe these products and their controls.
If the heating boiler itself if does not turn on in a response to a call for heat see NO HEAT - BOILER.
