Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

There is no reset except to kill the power, wait a minute or so then turn it back on. You may have a problem with the control board since the draft fan should not be running if the boiler is on standby.
