This is where I like outside boilers. You can remove the burner, point it away from the boiler and fire it up with the flame visible and really see what is going on. Do NOT try that with an indoor boiler :ph34r:

 Yes we have done this inside.... desperate times needs desperate measures!  BUT DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!


I would originally said solenoid on oil pump starting to fail but when you said removal of front cover makes difference, I presume this is not a room sealed boiler I think I would be double checking baffles are in correct place.

@Diablo, any news?

Hi, in all honesty, I have just let the boiler run without the cover off.  I figure that if we can at least see out the cold spell albeit with partially dressed boiler, that's fine by me.  Beyond that, we will certainly need to get to the bottom of what is going on.  I will call your mate and pick his brains.  Either way, I will post the outcome here.


Thanks again.
