Make sure the electrodes are set properly for your burner. Make sure you are getting oil to the burner by opening up the bleeder on the pump after you press the safety switch to start the furnace. Take the screw out of the transformer and lift it up then hold a screwdriver on 1 of the springs and bring the tip of the screwdriver about 1 half inche from the other contack spring to see if the transformer will spark.

I need to turn the temperature down on my Hydrotherm oil-fired burner. How do I do that?


On the front of the unit on the upper right is a grey box. Remove cover. Inside there should be a notched steel dial to adjust the water temperature.
Hope this helps.

Where do i adjust boiler temp on a gas fired boiler


difficult to say just where the temperature control is on your system. it will likely be an immersion type control located some on or near the boiler. it should have a temperature range scale on it.

Boiler makes twitching sound and doenst stay on


If the boiler uses oil (#2 fuel diesel); there are several factors that could cause this problem:
* Lack of oil due to clogged oil filter or restricted oil line.
* Cad resistance greater than 1500 ohms.
* Defective Primary control.
* Shoot accumulated on the retention head.
* En pinching flame in combustion chamber.
* Collapsed combustion chamber into firing range.
* There are other reason not listed here.
* Some problems require expensive testing equipment to make an accurate diagnosis.
* Get in touch with an oil burner technician with several years of experience. I have a license to practice in the state of Massachusetts. My number is 978-5443783

Riello oil burner RDB with red plastic cover at the front wont ignite. I've tried bleeding the valve. The motor seems to make an electrical humming noise for about 12 secs, then the system attempts to...


The motor should spin when the boiler is switched on. One end of the motor spins the fan the other end works the pump. The control box then starts the transformer that starts a spark. The control box then opens up the oil. The boiler should then light if any of the above or the boiler does not light, the boiler will go to lockout.
From what you say the motor is not spinning, thus it could be the motor or more like the pump.

YOU SHOULD NOT PLAY WITHE THE PUMP

If the wrong setting is made it could 1 burn out the back of your boiler 2 go to soot and the boilers in an hour would be filled up and become a fire risk. 3 not start at all if the setting is too low it is a fine line to get it to work and needs the right tools.
