Question about Heating & Cooling
The actual final solution was to replace the fuel valve/solenoid following which the boiler has run without failure.
The conclusion was that the fuel valve solenoid was ok when cold but when heated up had some sort of electrical breakdown in its coils, causing the fuel valve to fluctuate until the boiler locked out.

You could have a problem with a temperature sensor.
it would not be the flame sensor since it could not wait 6 mins to sense that there is flame in the unit.
could be a temperature sensor problem where it is sensing a temperature which could be correct but it is sending a wrong signal to the controller to turn off the flame and start another cycle.
