8-year old Buderus G215-3 with logamatic won't run

We have a Buderus G215-3 and it would not come out of summertime mode this fall. Our heating tech said that the logamatic is shot and that we need a new one installed. In the meantime, he switched the logamatic to "manual" mode. We are burning through oil like crazy 3/4 of a tank in less than a month. Is it likely that the computer is really shot?

It's always possible, and hopefully your guy isn't a 'tinkertician' that throws parts at your expense at a problem until it goes away.

Still, even without the control, 3/4 tank in a month is a lot... even with my 30 year old dog boiler I never would burn that much. Might want to look into the reasons for that first.

I presume you have a history with this system and know for a fact that this usage is excessive?
