Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your

issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

What exactly is turning off? the burner? if so this is normal operation. As the burners fire the boiler temp rises to the limit setting at which point the burners shut down until the hot water is circulated through the huse cooling it off. At which point the burners come back on. The circulator/pump will/should run until the call for heat is satisfied.

the burner
can i adjust the limit setting?
how can i tell if the circulator pump is running?
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 9 months ago

You don't want to adjust anything. The limit is set to the design temp of the system so don't mess with it. You can tell if the pump is running by putting a screwdriver handle to your ear and the tip on the pump. If it's running you'll hear it spinning.
