He may have bled the lines but did he also bleed the fuel filter as well. All oil tanks have an oil filter in them, sometimes two. He could hav bleed the lines but still had some residual air in the line, the filter, or somewhere else along the supplu side. I"m sure if you call and explain the situation they will come and rebleed the rest of the air out of the system,especially if you're a regular customer. Also have them check the tank fuel filter, if it's clogged that too would keep oil from getting to the burners.

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 John wood GSW water heater, JW317RF that will not come out of "lockout mode". I have reset the water heater numerous times and it will seem like its going to run but never ignites. I have bled it...


id say the draft u feel is normal (if it wasn't fumes wouldn't exit the home) lock outs usually occur when there is a fault to exist in the burner circuit (detected) like the flame proving sensor being defective(very common) or no draft fan running , you ill need to do a little more looking to determine what is needed

I have an older model Ideal Mexico 2 floor standing open flue boiler running a fully pumped system. The central heating isn't working properly despite being flushed etc. The initial problem is still there...


You could undone the return at the boiler to release any air ? if you think there is a air lock . Or turn the pump up to max with the heating on and try to push the air out .

Very Hot water coming out of overflow pipe


Is your boiler heating your domestic hot water if so i would turn water off to water maker and see if your boiler pressure stays down below 20 psi. If so water maker is bad. The other thing that could cause this problem would be the boiler pump is out.

How to re pressurisecentral heating system


Hi tiger650,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: The Alpha SY24 boiler has stopped working. The pressure gauge has dropped, you need to know how to re pressurise the system once the radiators have been bled

Every hydronic heating system is required to have a presure regulator. Most guys call it a feeder valve. Every one I've installed or worked on had one. It's job is to keep the water pressure constant by adding water when you release some air without over filling the system. Sounds like it's not working. Some types can be serviced, others cannont so you may have to replace it. If you're not sure what to do it might be prudent to check the Repair Directory for a repairman.
