    Not much details about your boiler....Does it have a flame rectification to prove pilot? If so, make sure that rectification rod that goes into the flame is clean.

    You think that the vent motor is bad...Unplug the motor, get a VOM meter and check for power, if you have power than it is the motor, If no power than you have a safety switch open.

How do I light pilot light?

There should not be a pilot on a direct vent furnace. When you turn up the thermostat for heat the 1st thing to happen is a venter motor should start, it should vent for approximately 45 seconds, the air switch will verify a vacuum in the burner box, then a spark igniter should start clicking to start the pilot, then the flame rod will verify the pilot, the igniter will stop clicking, and the main burner will ignite and remain on until the thermostat has satisfied the set point. These guideline steps must be satisfied before the controller advances to the next step. The 1st step is the venter motor running, sometimes the motor will stick over the summer months, spin it manually to unstick it. PS, nothing runs if the fan door cover is open, as that shuts down the power to the whole furnace.

Why does it start, then shut down followed by 3 clicks?

  • Thermostat calls for heat
  • Venter motor starts
  • Air switch verifies vacuum
  • Igniter sparks, or glows - depending on furnace
  • Flame starts in burner
  • Flame rod senses flame
  • Burner continues to burn until thermostat stops calling for heat
By your description, I would polish your flame rod, it will be a metal rod that is insulated from the bracket that is screwed to the furnace case and it will have a single wire attached to flame rod,

Power vent on oil furnace keeps running

The vent motor starts with a call for heat from the thermostat. They are actuated by a separate relay that may be arched closed. Kill all power, turn the stat way down and turn the power back on. If it starts when the thermostat is NOT calling for heat, find and replace the relay.

If it was an old police vehicle it has probably got an ignition kill switch located somewhere. This will have to be removed. And the wiring put back to factory standards. If not an old police car you are not getting voltage to the starter which is a bad relay. Do you get a clicking sound when you try to start? If yes, have someone keep hitting the start and listen and look for a relay under the hood.
