Why would a steam trap get hot and not release any condensate?

A. If the trap is getting hot and not releasing any condensate, this would suggest that there is no moisture or condensate making it to the trap. The trap may be installed above a leaky by-pass valve, there may be a broken pipe in the syphon drained cylinder, or there may be vacuum water heater coils that could prevent drainage.
