UTICA BOILER with auto light WILL NOT FIRE UP?

HI,
we have a newer (installed last year) utica boiler with an automatic ingnition system. we recently have came home and the boiler will not come on. someone has suggested the thermocoupler? would that do it? should i buy a new honeywell s8600m box mounted to the boiler and replace it? any help is appreciated.

thanks
jack

Gas fired, right ?

It could be the thermocouple... if your boiler has a standing pilot ... and if it did, it might just be that the pilot went out ?

But, I don't think your boiler has a standing pilot, doesn't it have "electronic" ignition ?

I wouldn't buy anything new until I was sure what the problem was.

Might be yer best bet to call a tech...

Great! but just keep in mind that if you need to keep pushing the reset in order to keep it running that you may need it looked at. An occasional "nuisance trip" might not mean much, but it could also be a sign that something is starting to go wrong. Have you got CO detectors in the house ? If not, you ought to...

Cool same problem with our munchkin model

We have the same problem with our 2 year old munchkin boiler, first we tried the reset button every several days, then things get worse, eventually had to reset at least 3 or 4 times a day. We called service people in, they checked everywhere can not figure out the problem. He called manufactuer technical support, they called him instructing him to open up the boiler. did quite a few cleaning up. Things getting much better now, don't know if we suppose to do this CLEANING every year.

They also suggest that could be flame sensor or/and burner gasket wore out. Only after 2 years??

Munchkin

Every manufacturer of every piece of heating equipment made, specifies to have the equipment serviced annually. Some servicer's idea of proper service is to look at it & if it appears to be running ok, maybe wipe the dust off, hand you a bill & run. Others do a complete cleaning & check out of the equipment. If you are burning LP, expect your boiler to require a lot more maintenance than those using natural gas.

Tell me a bit more about your boiler and your problem Leon...

Make/model of boiler, and why you need to look for a reset button.
