All it needs is a good blow out with compressed air. They tend to carbon up in the pilot light area. You will probably also find it is very dusty inside. Easiest way to clean the carbon out is to remove the hose at the heater and with compressed air blow through the fitting where you have removed the hose. Make sure you hold down the start button so the air can get through to the pilot light and jets. Don't connect the electricity for the fan when you do this. If you can get to the top of the pilot light it may help to give that a blow out too.
To clean it out internally you only need to remove the front panelling. Just follow the screw configurations *** you go. I asm not familiar with that type of heater so thats about the best I can do. Regards Bryan

Check if the ignition plug works. Upon putting your boiler on, a spark will normally trigger the
the firing. Then, check the ignition transformer if it works. Check the secondary voltage which is between 15000 to 20000 volts to trigger the ignition plug and the boiler to fire. If no spark,
have your ignition transformer replaced to make it work.

This may be normal it's hard to tell from your description , The flame could possibly rollout for a second or 2...depending on the venting , how far the vent is from the chimney etc....you shouldn't hear a "Mini Explosion" you may hear the gas ignite with a bit of a woooosh...depending on the size of the boiler this could be quite normal...Boilers can be dangerous when they get plugged up or dirty....although Hydrotherm makes an EXCELLENT Cast Iron Boiler...I would still have it checked by an expert to be on the safe side....you should also have a "Slow Opening" valve which would eliminate that problem if the valve is working correctly , but it's possible it was replaced at some point with a regular opening valve and this could be the reason as well

Do you have a remote that turns the unit on and off
and has different heat settings? Could be the batteries are bad in remote
