Question about Heating & Cooling
Do you hear a thumping noise on the lower right side of the unit just before it starts flashing the light bars? If so you have a fuel supply problem. If there is no thumping noise I would check the flue pipe on the outside to be sure it is clear. Lastly I would remove the copper fuel pipe from the burner and try to start the stove. If fuel comes out the pipe the pump is good. If fuel comes out I would stick a paper clip down the fuel nozzle about 3 inches, it could be blocked with carbon. If no fuel comes out the pipe, you will need to get a manual or a tech to help you out. The choices would now be fuel pump or main board, both of which are pricey so you don't want to make a mistake.
That being said, when was the last time you had the burner serviced? Mat, ring and all the gaskets involved? A Monitor 441 needs to be looked at about every 3 years to be sure you get through the heating season.
