Description for Honeywell Y8610U4001

Intermittent Pilot Retrofit Kits save energy by converting atmospheric standing pilot systems to intermittent pilot. Typical applications are gas-fired atmospheric furnaces, boilers and heating appliances. (For 150,000 BTU units)

Features

  • Y8610U kits are for use with natural or LP gas: provides 100 percent pilot gas shutoff if pilot fails to light; after 6-minute delay, trial for ignition is repeated.
  • Ignition trail/delay sequence is repeated until the appliance lights or call for heat is removed.
  • Includes gas valve, ignition module, pilot burner hardware, ignition cable, and wiring harness

Specifications
  • Description: Provide electronic control of intermittent pilot ignition systems used on gas fired furnaces, boilers, and other heating appliances.
  • System Type: Intermittent Pilot
  • Ignition Sequence: Continuous retry, after trial for ignition, pilot gas shuts off for 5 minutes, then another trial for pilot ignition takes place
  • Typical Gas Control: VR8204
  • Type of Gas: Natural or LP
  • Flame Sense: Single Rod or Two Rods
  • Ignition Source: Internal high voltage spark generator
  • Prepurge: 0 or 30 seconds
  • Ignition trials to lockout: continuous retry
  • Lockout Timing: 15 or 90 seconds

        I am very happy with the product and the solution that it provides, i.e. brand new valve and no longer have a standing pilot that would get blown out from time to time. The valve install went well and wiring the S8610 to the new valve was a no brainer. However the rest of the install was rough going, mainly b/c I'm not an HVAC boiler expert and I couldn't figure out how to wire everything OTHER than the S8610 back up with all the safety switches and limit switch.

        My existing pilot tube was plenty long (but much thinner than the supplied adapter (1/8" vs 1/4") and so after I figured out how to cut my pilot tubing "cleanly" (i.e. no barbs nor closed tube end) I realized I needed a new adapter for my tube to fit the new valve. I couldn't get the main gas line compression fitting off the existing valve so I needed to go to the supply store anyway. No big deal 'cept that 3 stores didn't have the pilot tube adapter I needed.

        Once I had the parts I thought I was home free. But since I'm a novice I didn't understand how to get all the wiring correct for the existing safeties (vent, flame roll-out), limit switch and circulator pump. I eventually found a diagram that was perfect for what I needed but it was too late and after I had to call in a pro. Heat was off for hours, it was late and outside temp was dropping down to 0.

        One point of confusion was that in the included documentation there was a diagram for "no vent damper" but not 1 for "with vent damper" (which I have). And the existing wiring had a harness for the damper, which obviously included the damper in the series of safeties, but the S8610 had a standalone connection for the damper which wasn't clear how to complete the rest of the wiring w/o the damper inline.

        It really would've been great if there was a diagram that showed how the existing components, the aforementioned switches, etc., wired in, EVEN if it was the same as before. Since I had to disconnect a lot of stuff I couldn't exactly remember how it all went back together. Something like a generic boiler install diagram but with the S8610 in there. I mean all boilers have all the same terminals on their transformer (R, G, C, Y, W) and same/similar components (safety switches, pump or fan, valve control, damper, etc.)

        One last point of confusion was the TH-W terminal on the S8610. NOT NEEDED. Not at all. T-stat still wires to R and G on the transformer. Not even sure what it's supposed to do. Seemed to me that when I had it wired up it would power the burner if there was a call for heat regardless of the state of the safety or limit switch. Boiler started to overheat. Obviously I was wiring it WRONG but it seemed like an obvious connection, T-stat white wire to TH-W. Not in my config.

        I think the solution (for me anyway) would be a little more info on each terminal for each component, for folks like me that might be diving into this appliance for the 1st time, and I'm sure I could figure out how to wire it then. Error on the side of too much info/documentation since I'm sure the experts would just toss out that page.

        Anyway, all's well that ends well I guess. I'm really not one to complain. Just wish I knew then what I know now. Would still recommend. And if anyone has any questions, fire away, I'm an expert now. :)

        Honeywell should offer a model of this kit that has the aqua stat built as part of the valve. that would simplify installation.
        Am still not finished with installation because I can not locate the reverse thread to 1/2 pipe fitting. the adapter for propane use (reverse thread) should come with kit.

              Finishing my first season with the electronic pilot and figure I have paid for it already in gas savings. Easy to install as long as you FAITHFULLY record where every wire in the old set-up goes. I had no electric damper to worry about but I don't think that would have been a problem. The instruction are not user friendly
              but read them through a few times and understanding comes. I made the conversion in August along with splicing in a wall unit (actually a kickspace heater mounted vertically between the studs) for a basement room.

                          Product arrived as expected. We had 3 boilers to convert and this package of 3 was perfect for that. The pricing is very good when compared to local pricing.
                          Everything went well with what we received

                                            Picked up this to convert my aging gas supply line from the 60s for my furnace, essentially eliminating the use of 4 different components into this one setup. This also solved my fear of the pilot blowing out while away during a cold Chicago winter. Setup was relatively straight forward. The only modification I needed was to adjust the gas pressure, as the pressure was set to high out of the box for my setup, and kept blowing the pilot out, putting the furnace into a loop always trying to restart. A few turns of the set screw resolved this issue, and I now have full confidence in this honeywell setup. Everything you need except the gas pilot supply line is in the box.

                                                              My original standing pilot failed and I started getting quotes on both a replacement and this product from heating companies. The prices I was getting varied from "It can't be done" to over $1100 installed, so I figured I'd give it a try myself. Installation was easy and, other than carefully tracing all the safety device electrical paths, took less than 2 hours. Not bad for something outside my skill set. Total cost, including a new pilot light feed tube, was under $230. Thanks PEX for having such excellent prices!

                                                                    I used this to replace components that failed on my boiler. This kit was a good choice because the valve, control module and igniter/sensor are made to work together. The price from PexSupply was also great compared to buying individual components or buying it locally. One problem was that one part of the kit was missing, but PexSupply took care of that problem for me.

                                                                        Answered on 1/8/2015 by Anonymous
