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.

This could be a thermostat problem or possibly a bad connection on the thermostat circuit. The next time this happens try jumping the terminals where the thermostat connects to the boiler
