However the aquastat should have kicked on at 180 based on my setting but if nothing else 220 deg. This did not occur. !! When the pump did kick on the main pipe became very warm indeed ( 235 deg water ) the system cooled down to 160 within a minute or so. along with pressure around 15PSI . This has not c hanged ,. House is at 68deg ( per my T-stat setting ) boiler temp is within my aquastat settings, . Also after I thanked God for taking care of me as he always does , I then did call plumber !! They are telling me if its not doing it now , what can they check ?? my question is to all of you ( what can they check ) ?? Also if it were to hit th e 250 deg mark and or the 30psi mark what happens ??? should I be worried ??? what are the procedures for something like that !!

Assuming your hi limit aquastat and relief valve are new and hooked up properly, they will avert explosion of the boiler vessel if that is your primary concern.
What a good plumber will check is all of the electrical connections on the controls, the controls, and the strainers. Stoker man was pointing out that the c1 on the anthrastat can be monitored with a meter to see if juice is flowing to the circulator on a call for heat. The plumber should check all of those control connections.
I was worried there was a blockage in your piping because you had a hot boiler and cool boiler pipes. Unless you have a flow check valve, the primary loop or boiler piping will experience gravity flow or convection and heat up the boiler piping (not your room loops). If it was hot on the boiler side of the circulator but not on the other, and it had a flow check built into the circulator, the circulator isn't doing any pumping due to 1) bad relay or connection 2) blockage 3) bad circulator motor/broken impeller.
Continue your prayer, as I will, and call a different plumber.
