        This item was back ordered from Amtrol by PEX Supply, and took quite a bit longer to get delivered than I had originally hoped... but, it was well worth the wait as this is the latest unit and is a direct retrofit replacement to all previous models.
        I did have a few questions for Amtrol tech support as the wiring for this unit was slightly different and there was an extra plug coming from the thermistor that I was not 100% sure about. The biggest difference from my 15yr old unit was that in addition to having an additional wire & plug it also had a threaded in plug to clamp it in place. I called to question removal of the old one, and it turned out to just be a press fit and it a pair of pliers came out easily and the new one threaded in fine. The 2 different Amtrol tech reps that I spoke with were very helpful and friendly, so do not hesitate to call them if you have any doubts how this retrofit is installed.

                    Perfect replacement for my Amtrol water storage tank, forty gallon capacity. The old control lasted about six years. Some of the resistors were burned out on the inside and a relaying was constantly clicking with the old unit. Funny the internal fuses didn't blow in an overload situation. I hope I don't have that problem again. Pexsupply had product to me very quickly. I have always been satisfied with their quick service.

                          I used to replace the old one in my boiler, it was very easy to install but the item needs to replace every five to six years.

                                            Took 12 days to get but worth the wait, my old contoller worked intermittantly. This new one works great , won't kick the burner on until it needs heat, less run time than my 15 year old one.

                                                  This product has brought down my oil consumption by regulating my hot water. It has been less than 90 days, but so far so good. I can already see and feel the difference in cost and temperature of water. At this juncture of time there has been no negatives for me. GREAT!

                                                  Purchased to replace original Smart Control from 2001 that failed. Although revised from original, wiring, fit, and function were the mostly the same. The LED display has changed from red to green and is larger. There is slightly increased functionality in programming options. I wired it up as the original, restored power, programmed it, and hot water was restored. First control (and BoilerMate itself) did not give a bit of trouble for 11+ years, but online searches reveal I may have been lucky. Cautiously optomistic about new one. I believe the BoilerMate w/SmartControl and its programmability have saved considerable fuel over the years, so hopes are new control will last at least as long. Pex Supply had best price I could find and it arrived reasonably fast considering order was placed on Thanksgiving evening of a holiday weekend.

                                                      ER3 indicates that the unit has taken over 60 minutes to reach the temperature set point or it cannot reach the set point. The error codes clear automatically when corrected or can be reset by interrupting power to the control for 5 seconds. To silence an alarm, depress the▼on the keypad.
