Burner Issues

Bomba Member Posts: 28
Hi all, 

I’ve had one burner out on my Utica steam boiler for a few years now. I think it’s time to fix it before the cold comes. Attached is a picture. Anyone know what I should do to fix this issue?

    Remove the burner and check the orifice at the manifold. Typically, a spider in residence has made its egg casing there during the summer months.
