Weil-McLain Gold GV Boiler Model Number 1013-200... Co2 alarm went off and smelled propane in basement.. noticed that the boiler would cycle through and TRY to ignite... would sound like it's lit for about 5-7 seconds, and all lights would be on (1 green and 4 red)... then, the flame would die and the red light for "burner flame proven" would go out. Just check propane levels in tank outside, we're at 40%, so its not that.
