SOURCE: reddy heater won't stay on
sounds like a Thermal Cut-off this is a small sensor that detects if the heater has ignited properly, sounds like this sensor has failed and the heater shuts off to prevent from gassing anyone

Hey welcome to the world of oil burner service!! :-) Theyare a finnicky beast to say the least. The problem you are having sounds like an air mixture problem. A combustion analyser would be the best tool to have but being that you probably don't have that try this. On the left side of the burner as you are looking at it is an air adjust ment ring and a fine tuning ring. the fine tuning ring is probably all you need to adjust. There is a screw that is usually right behind or near the pipe coming out of the pump and going into the burner. Loosen that and turn the ring away from you just a bit to close off some of the air and you will be fine. The burner is running a bit to lean. If you can see the flame turn the adjustment closed just until the flame color turns from a almost white color to a slightly orange color. Then you should be fine. Good luck!!

You have a problem that the installer does not know how to fix so they are just stringing you along hoping that you will give up and find some one else or forget about it..
You need to tell them to
1. fix the boiler correctly
2.take it back out and give you a new one at their expense
3. or tell them you will call another comapny to fix it and will give the bill to them to pay.
You did not get what you have paid for... do not pay them any money to come out and troubleshoot the boiler.
The boiler should work as the instructions say or someone did something wrong...
Sometimes it is best to call the boiler company and talk directly to their Tech. Support people.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!
