Try the connector at the top of the boiler where the fan and the pressure sensor switch connect.This connector can corrode causing the power to not get to the fan. I looks like an ordinary terminal block but actually is a pin connector. Pull the connector apart, clean the pins and the inside of the sockets with fine emery paper, carefully prise the two halves of each pin apart and reconnect the connector. Be careful with the last step otherwise you can break the pins!! To get access to the connector remove the outer casing of the boiler and then the inner front plate - you will see the fan and the offending connector at the very top.

Good luck!

Tip

Cruise Control for Your Oil Burner to Save Money


The Beckett HeatManger is a microprocessor controlled device that will manage the on/off cycles of your boiler. Every time your boiler has to shut down and then restart your have just lost a bit of efficiency. By reducing the start/stop cycles of your boiler you not only reduce fuel consumption, but you also reduce wear on the parts of the boiler and emissions coming from your boiler. Your burner burns very inefficiently on startup and shut down. When I have my combustion analyzer on a burner it goes crazy with bad gasses right after shutdown.

If you have a fuel oil or gas fired boiler and you are wondering how you can save money on your heating bill without replacing your boiler then I have good news for you! By adding a simple device to the burner of your boiler you can be saving at least 10% in minutes

With this control if your thermostat requests heat and the HeatManager has sensed that there is heat available in the boiler, it will not start the burner until the heat is used up. When the burner is running, the HeatManger will optimize the runtime to match the boiler output to the load.

The unit is very easy to install. It is mounted to the junction box under the relay and wired into the normal burner relay wiring. There are a couple of sensors that need to be attached. One senses the supply water temperature for heating, coming out of the boiler and the other senses domestic hot water boiler supply temperature.

Even if you would decide to get a professional to install this unit you will be on the road to saving big dollars while only spending few hundred bucks. Then when the price of fuel oil and natural gas begins to rise again, which it will this winter, you will be getting even more savings from your small investment.

Saving money is always a good thing, but when you can combine saving money with greater comfort than I would call that a great thing!

You should have the boiler serived yearly to prevent unwanted downtime. The issues you are having may be pilot/flame sensor problems. I would recommend having it serviced to eliminate them.

Boiler won't fire even though the pilot is lit


Check if the ignition plug works. Upon putting your boiler on, a spark will normally trigger the
the firing. Then, check the ignition transformer if it works. Check the secondary voltage which is between 15000 to 20000 volts to trigger the ignition plug and the boiler to fire. If no spark,
have your ignition transformer replaced to make it work.

I had the same problem. I traced it to the micro switch in the water/central heating motorised valve having shorted out.

I replaced the (Honeywell) motorised valve and it is now only running when it should.
