Bleeding Riello 40 Series F3

I have a hot water baseboard boiler, it is a riello 40-f3 I am attempting to bleed the air out of the fuel line - not very successfully - I attempted to bleed it using what I thought was the bleeder port ( a large hex head with a smaller slotted piece in the middle of it ) air did seep out and i got a bit of oil coming through but when I hit the reset button it does the norm - shut off after approx 20sec
any help?
Thanks

Oh boy ... that sounds more like the pump pressure adjustment to me ...

unless you have a gauge that you can adjust the pump pressure with, and I don't guess you do... it's time to call a service tech.

Tell him what you did ... don't make him guess ...

Overhead oil lines? One or two pipes???

Is it going through the prepurge, and going out when it
doesn't prove ignition?? Could be a bad control module
or connection, bad cadcell, bad ignition transformer, etc. Clogged filter???

I'm not sure I made a clear statement:

what I was trying to say is that I believe Tre mistakenly removed the screw that is intended to adjust pump pressure and should not be touched, instead of the bleeder port !

So, now the pump pressure is probably all outta whack ...
in addition to the reason he tried to bleed it in the first place.
