burnham boiler won't start

fz Member Posts: 1
Burnham RV4 boiler, tekmar 362 control, constant speed circ pump, cast iron radiators; 9 years trouble-free operation, boiler wouldn't come on one day this week

-switched off the main 120 v power to the system, waited 10 seconds

-switch power back on, tekmar reset itself

-pump starts, boiler blower stays off

-switched off the main 120 v power to the system, waited 15 minutes

-switch power back on, tekmar reset itself, pump starts, boiler blower starts! system heats up no problem

-same thing happened next day, come home, pump is running, no boiler ... after power-off/15 minute wait/power on, system runs good for 2 days

-same thing today, except can't get the boiler blower to start-up, pump runs no problem

any suggestions would be appreciated

    When the blower is off

    and not running with the circulator running, do you have power to the blower? If yes then the blower is bad and needs replaced. However if you have no power then go back to the Tekmar control and see if you have power, if not then the Tekmar is faulty.

    It is a good idea however to have a professional take a look at the system.
