Burner question

I have an old Slant Fin boiler that I just replaced the burners. The old ones were pretty well shot, and on occasion, there would be a real mild "pop" resulting in a fire inside the burner. I assumed this was from the old burners being burned out. Now after replacing all the burners with the new ones, I'm still getting the fire inside a burner shortly after fire up.

Any thoughts?

Thanks much,

Todd

Burners

Has anyone checked the gas pressure? Are you sure the correct orifices are installed?

Thanks Grady,

Yes and yes! I throttled down the gas shut off valve a bit and it seems to help. Any other ideas?

Gas shut off valve

Something's not right. By throttling the shut off valve, you are reducing the amount of gas available to the burners. I suggest you contact a professional to set up the burners. You could be producing huge amounts of carbon monoxide.
