Customer Question
XB-14 System cuts out...

XB-14 System cuts out after about 15 seconds, restarts and cuts out again. My name is*****

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best, ***** *****

We have had some cool weather and lots of rain so I have not used the system for about 2 weeks. Restarted Sunday and kicked right in then cut out after about 15-30 seconds. It then restarts and cuts out again; on and on. Is there a reset?

Contractor's Assistant: Are you ready to speak with the HVAC Technician now?

Yes

If furnace has a flame sensor ,lets start by cleaning that first.It will be a small steel rod which sticks into burner flame wit a single wire attached.We will go from here.See generic video below
