Looks like there was at one time a l7103 Honeywell aquastat but has since been removed. No aquastat present
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Red light to indicate lockout is lit but will not reset no matter how long it’s held in
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 10 months ago

What do you have for an operating control (aquastat/relay)?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Low water cutout and water feeder is i see . Old aquastat is here with old replaced burner but no aquastat now
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 10 months ago

Ok, so steam not hot water (68 series could be used for either). Do you have power to the ignition control?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
steam sorry , should’ve clarified . Power is good . Burner started when the unit was turned on but tripped when bleeding the line . And now will not reset
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 10 months ago

I got that. The question is do you have power at the ignition control now. If you do then test for 120 volts across the white and orange leads (motor lead) after holding the reset down for 30 seconds. After 10 seconds the LED's should flash then 20 seconds later the control should power the burner. If you have nothnig then the control is suspect. If you have 120 volts then replace the motor.
