Help Identifying Electric Boiler Parts

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to find the parts for my homes electric boiler system. I believe they are some type of relay/switch that control the heating elements. Only one of the three elements are running so it is struggling to keep the house warm during our frigid winter conditions. I know the system is very old and parts are hard to come by so I am hoping someone on here has some expertise. I will be having the system replaced with a natural gas unit in the spring, but I need to have this system repaired to get me through the winter until they can run a gas line. Please see the pictures below. Thank you in advance!

Hey beenthere, I just wanted to thank you for taking the time out of your day, to respond with such a useless comment ?. It's more like I wanted my thread to have some exposure, and maybe by a long shot someone could help me identify the parts I am looking for as it is a very time sensitive thing since it is winter and my homes heating system is struggling to keep up. I really appreciate your concern, and you taking the time out of your Holidays to help out!

Ps. I have been working in carpentry for 10 years there Big Dog! ?

Re: Help Identifying Electric Boiler Parts

There are 3 basic ways to identify those parts.

1) check the electrical diagrams for the furnace, and see if they are identified there.

2) check the online replacement parts sites and see if they're identified there.

3) match up the part markings to a manufacturer and part number. This can take some sleuthing, or it can be a simple Google exercise, no way to tell. The photos you posted aren't useful, the markings would have to be clearly identifiable.
