I did a search for the model number of my boiler controller on google and found a picture but the model is no longer on the manufacturers website.

It seems like the English version of the page is not finished.

Could someone who knows Korean please contact this company for me and try to get an English version of the manual or maybe get the Korean version and tell me what all these dang buttons do? Thank-you. -Jeff

Model CTR-3000 (not CTR-300)

Looks like the English is working now...

http://www.krbp.co.kr/re-english/htm/degree.htm

Appears like both the Korean and English are not up-to-date as they appear identical:

I recommend clicking through the various model's room controllers and see if there are similarities between the ones there and the one in your house. If that doesn't work, take a pic and post it up here or contact the company directly at the details given on their page.

All the newer ones are digital. Mine has knobs. I'm hoping someone here will contact the company for me because I don't speak korean and the English teacher here can't explain it to me. -Jeff

They're really not too difficult. There is usu a knob for the floor heating, one for the water, one for the temp, and one for the timer, or sth similar. Do you have a boss that can show you what needs to be done? Again, if you can post a pic, I and/or others will be able to explain things relatively quickly and easily for you.

Basic translation:

1) Room temperature.
2) Safety lamps...sth to do w/ the boiler checking itself on a regular basis.
3) Power on...if lit, no major problems...at least the boiler is working.
4) Energy saver/Timer (if you have to the far left, it will not be off concern, but it's a good setting to use to keep your place a little warm throughout the day/night and uses much less oil/gas/whatever than if you had it running constantly).
5) Water temp.
6) Floor heat main switch.
7) Sleep setting (boiler's comp keeps the room at a std lower temp - whatever that may be?).
8.) Lots of hot water for five people.
9) If you're away from home for more than a day, press this to ensure that your water doesn't freeze up during the colder months.
10) After maintenance, boiler restart button.
11) Lamp indicators...will light up if you choose the f'n beside it.

So, if you press 6 and the light comes on, you should begin getting heat not long after. However, if you have the timer (4) set at 2, the boiler will come on every two hours to try and get the room temp up to whatever you have it set at. If you're okay heat-wise, keep 6 off and use only 8 for your hot water. The water will come out at whatever temp you have it set at on 5. Sorry that these may not be the best instructions/translations, but they'll probably at least help you get some heat and/or hot water.

Print the instructions off and have someone at work go over them in more detail with you if you need to.

You rule. My wrangler translated button 6 as the temperature button. I asked, "what does the temperature button do? What happens when you push the temperature button?" All I got was a blank stare. Your directions make much more sense. -Jeff

I cut and pasted your post into word and then printed it so I could read it while looking at the diagram. (Thats a hint for anyone reading this later wondering how to print a single post but I must say I prefer OpenOffice.)

She did tell me to hit 8 for hot water and then 9 when I left for work but then she seemed to indicate that was up to me but I couldn't figure out what criteria I would use to decide that.

She called number 10 the "at home" button. It doesn't seem to do anything. Maybe because the boiler is already on? I assume you can only turn it off at the boiler itself?

Sometimes at night I would have hot water at the kitchen sink which is closer to the boiler but not at the bathroom. The very first morning I had no hot water but I don't remember what the settings were.

Maybe I'll see if I have hot water in the morning before hitting the hot water button. -Jeff

If there is a thermostat that turns the heat on and off to stay at the correct temperature then why is there also a timer. I'm not sure I get that. -Jeff

If you use the timer, the boiler comes on whenever you set it for and stays on until the temp is back to the desired setting, then shuts down again until the next round. For example, you want the room temp to be 25, and you have the timer set for two hours. Every two hours, the boiler comes on to bring the room temp back to 25. If you use the reg floor setting, the boiler works more often to ensure that the room temp stays at or near the 25. I think.

As per your vacinity to boiler and availability of hot water question, I'm not sure. It does take a little while for the boiler to get the water up to the temp you want it at though, so you don't always get immediate results. Also, there may be some warm-to-hot water still around even a few hours after the hot water has been turned off...think it depends on how much you use and whether or not you have your floor heating on.

I don't know how big your place is, but you usu are able to control which rooms get heat. Even though the boilers seem quite similar to the old style furnaces back home, I think they work a little better and faster because the floor space tends to be smaller here than back home. Makes sense that it would take less time for the rooms and/or tap water to heat up if the water doesn't have as far to travel to and from the boiler.

I had the timer on about 2. Maybe that means the floor will go to full blast in about two hours? At some point a while ago the place got really hot. I turned the timer to zero and the boiler light went off while the #6 light went on. I think I should leave the timer at zero from now on.

After I did that the third light around the temperature knob (#2) came on for a total of three. I thought I only had two lights because I only have two branches. Maybe that was wrong. Should all five lights be on?

If the number 6 light is on does that mean the floor heat is off?
