Have oil, but no heat or hot water

Hello, my boiler decided to stop working for some reason early this morning. We have no heat or hot water and the boiler doesn't seem to want to fire.

Last year, we had a zone controller go bad, but the boiler still worked and so did the hot water. Oddly enough, there is a small leak in the pipe below the zne controllers and i believe it did it last year when the one went bad.

We've been experiencing seemingly increasingly bad low hot water pressure.

I reset the breaker and hit the reset button on the boiler but the fan turned on and that was about it. I believe the boiler is a Crown Bahama and it shouldn't be more than 11 years old.

Any ideas?

Steve

If you have hard water, a softener would prevent a recurrence of the coil blockage.
