Question about SySTOR Systems (400S52) Burner

1 Answer

Burner will run for a couple of hours and then turn off.

I have a Riello 40 burner. I had oil delivered this past sunday. The burner was working fine until the oil delivery(may be a coincidence.) When the house got a little cool I checked and the burner had the orange light on indicating that it had tripped out. I hit the reset button and the burner started up again. I had to do this several times during the day. The burner ran all day monday without a problem but the problem occured again on tuesday. I was finally able to restart it again at 2:17 am on wednesday mornign. Again it ran for several hours before tripping out again. During this situation it took mulltiple hits on the reset button and it still keeps tripping out. Normally even if the tank runs dry it is easy to restart. Now it is almost impossible to start.

They could have disturbed the sludge in the tank when refilling. If you do not have a filter in place it may have clogged the pump or jet and making it hard to start. These need yearly maintenance anyway. The pumps usually have a screen inside and the jet has a screen inside. First,open the bleed on the pump and purge some oil from the line and see if it is flowing freely. If so, the take the drawer assembly out and clean it. Make sure the jet is clear, by blowing through the attached oil line. You should see/feel a fine mist of oil come out. Electrodes should be about 5/32" apart for an F5.

I have a riello burner 40 it will fire and come to temp but wont refire, goes into lockout


My first guess would be that it sounds like a clogged oil filter, air in your fuel line, is piping overhead, or leak in a fitting or connection causing it to loose it's prime when running.

I have also seen primary controls that are faulty do this, watching the complete cycle of the run time will give you more clues as to when the control actually locks out. Does it lock out during the run cycle as the boiler reaches temp.? If so,check for oil line and suction issues as stated above.

If it locks out on start up after reaching boiler set temperature, if hitting reset right away burner doesn't start and lock out occurs with no motor engaging, check motor (Note: Some motors when HOT will not kick in when powered, but after they cool down naturally they start, motor shaft may also be bound up tight, replacement is necessary) if burner motor spins but does not fire, check for fuel flow to the nozzle, be sure oil is pumping to the nozzle, if it is, clean cad cell eye, and check transformer for spark, if all is good.. replace primary control.

I have a riello 40 burner it fires for 2 seconds then cuts out what could be the problem


If it actually fires up and you have a flame for 2 seconds and then it shuts off, I'd bet that the photo cell is either dirty or has failed. If it is dirty, it suggests that the burner has been neglected for some time and probably is in desperate need of a tune up. The photo cell is located under the ignition transformer and is aimed into the combustion chamber to see the light created by the flame from the burning oil.

If it is clean, the photocell has likely failed and will need to be replaced. If it still runs the same way after photocell replacement, it is probably related to the primary controller or one of the other safety devices. Is this a forced hot air or hot water system?

Riello oil burner problem - Furnce blower starts on thermostat call but Riello burner needs to be manually reset for ignition.


BUrners trip on safety for a number of reasons. When the burner is working you should not see any smoke in the smokepipe. If you do then the settings are off and adjustments need to be made. If the unit does not actually light then the problem can either be with the nozzle, the oil pump or filter. Lastly, you may not be getting spark. If you get more specific I may be able to guide you through step by step.

Riello oil burner RDB Hi everybody i have a Riello oil burner RDB . I am wondering is there a way to make it more oil efficient?


does it have the air damper installed? You can add a magic heater to the flue and dump heat into your basement.. thats maybe 5 to 10 percent more efficient

Riello 40 F5 oil burner, on boiler, intermittently running


with a forced draught burner the fan motor would be checked via a pressure switch. if the pressure switch is not set correctly or the fan is too weak the contacts will not be made in the switch and the burner will lockout. if the damper is not open enough when the fan runs then the air supply will be too small for the switch to make. check to see if you have a capacitor on the fan windings if this is faulty then the fan will fail intermittently.

Riello burner will not pump oil to nozzel to burn.


Revisit the photocell:
1. Check if you connected the socket end, into the two pins properly, as it is possible to miss a pin.
2. Try to borrow a working photocell or use yours in another burner to make a determination.
