Oil Boiler runs then won't start without being reset

tkursh Member Posts: 1
I've got an older (20 years) oil boiler that just started tripping the primary safety switch after running for awhile. It fires up runs for a good period when heating the house then it trips the safety switch and has to be reset. I just had a cleaning and a new Honeywell R7284U1004/U primary installed and it's still doing it. Any suggestions? Thanks much.
