Need to spake to someone about a burnham boiler

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Since nov

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Maybe, but prob not

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The boiler will not remain lit. The pilot lights will light but the burners won't fire up. Would a cracked hear exchanger be the cause of this?
