When you run out of oil,you usually need to bleed the pump. The pump has what looks like a brake bleed fitting sticking up off it.
Do not start the burner until after you've bled the pump and cleaned up any spill of oil. don-ohio

The boiler stopped twice during a week. The reset button was pressed whenever to start the boiler again(twice during a week). Is it abnormal? Does the reset button need to be replaced?


Good Question!-- Let's see if we can figure this out--

What kind of fuel are we talking about? - Gas or Oil?

Any clue as to WHY the boiler stops?--
Can you see a water level, or a temperature or a pressure setting/ gauge?
Tell us what some of these readings are--

If it is gas-- how does ignition take place?-- Spark, or ignitor ignition?

Where is the Reset button?-- is it on the burner control-- or the water level control?

Tell us more--

How do i reset my boiler after having oil delivered, it ran out 2 days aggo just had 1000 litres delivered how do i getr the boiler up and running again????


While standing in front of the oil burner, on the left side you will see the fuel pump. On the bottom corner towards you, you will see a bleeder screw. If you put a cup or other vessel under this screw, loosen the screw, then hit the reset button it will start to push oil out the bleeder. Once the oil comes out a clear red liquid, close the bleeder screw and the unit should fire up. Hope this helps

Hi,

Are you getting Hot water and Heating?

The reason i ask is because I don't think you have a problem.

On this boiler it has a 'pump over run' thermostat incorporated into it, this ensures heat escapes from the boiler by using the pump to cool it down.

If you are getting hot water and heating, leave it well alone, if you reset the boiler this can have adverse effects on the boiler and evenually cause malfunction.

However, if you find that you are not getting Hot Water or Heating, then the most common fault on this boiler is the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) it is the 'brain' of the boiler and the most common fault on this make. (£160 + vat)

I hope this helps,

Steve

Hi Jurgie,
I'm Harvey, the Master Plumber,
Happy to render my assistance.

This is your problem!
When you are switching on the boiler it ignites for 8 to 10 seconds, then it cuts off and the lock out lamp comes on. Pressing the reset button or turning on the hot water tap has the same effect.

I need to get the make and model of your specific boiler to give you an accurate answer!
Waiting for your response.
Harvey, your Master Plumber.
