We have an elm Leblanc boiler in our apartment. We have great hot water. However, no heat. The top thermometer that might be measuring the air temperature doesn't look like it's working. We've tried pushing the reset button to no avail. Should we turn it off and back on? Sometimes it makes this horrible grinding noise. Haha (kind of scary).

Please see the attached pictures. I think it is a really old boiler and all the instructions are in French.
