Power Flame JR30A-12 locking out frequently

Gregg Member Posts: 11
I have a Smith 28A steam boiler controlled by a Power Flame JR30A-12 burner. Running on natural gas. Recently, the Honeywell Flame Safeguard Control board is locking out the power flame unit and the boiler will not operate. Once I manually reset the Honeywell board, the boiler fires up fine.

It appears that the burner is not igniting 100% of the time and the cause of the lockout.

Wondering if I should replace the flame rod and pilot assembly? How long do these thypically last? Any other possible casues/suggestions?

    lock out

    First thing   get an I.O.M. for burner.   what's it locking out on. may be a gas press. problem.  Pilot and rod can be cleaned.  You may need to pull the burner to check the diffuser plate. If your not familiar with this burner you may want to get a second set of eyes on it       pictures ?
