Angry New Yorker boiler wont stay running.

I keep having to reset this boiler on the honeywell r8184g control, it fires back up and then sometimes after about 10 secs i can hear the spark stop sparking inside but the flame is still there, any help would be nice ty. by the way the burner is a carlin, and it was just cleaned.

Burner shuts down

If it was cleaned professionally, call the servicer back.

Thumbs down Just cleaned? Shame on them.

As Grady said call them back. Also you they should have adjusted the electrodes after changing the nozzle and fuel filter. The fuel pump should have been bled and the pressure adjusted accordingly. If this is a service contract they owe you a combustion analysis printout. If the spark is not sparking, sounds like a quick replacement job without any adjustments. I maybe wrong but I am speaking from experience.
