What can be the problem...cold last nigth

HenryT Member Posts: 128
hi everyone. Cold in my house and waiting for tech to come in.

Boiler would not crank on yesterday for the first start up this season.

All power is up, LWCO is functioning, enough water in boiler and pilot light is up and standing.

I would use the t-stat to raise the temp by 8 degrees but she wont fire up? you can hear the vent damper but the orifices wont light up to make steam...

any ideas?

    You might want to post this in the oil or gas heating section as the burner guys are more likely to hang out over there and see you post.

    Is this

    a standing pilot which is on all the time, or is the pilot lit by a spark each cycle?
