Customer Question

I have an oil burning boiler that will not fire. I recently had a water line rupture and after fixing it I turned the boiler back on and it did not cycle at all, just went right into lock out. It will cycle if I hold down the reset button but still will not fire. I have checked for oil and spark and am getting both. I have replaced the electronic aquastat and still the same thing happens. My next move is to replace the control box, but is that necessary or is there something else I can try?

If the burner starts it's not a control problem. Your burner probably needs a tune up. What do you have for a burner?

I'm looking for the brand of the burner. If you're comfortable working on the burner I can give you some tune up/adjustment options
