    Default Ignition problem on boiler

    My boiler throws its breaker all the time (the one on the igniter unit). I typically have to light a piece of paper to get it to fire. Once it fires up it burns normally. Is this typically a problem with the nozzle not being clean or should I replace the igniter unit? Is that tough to replace?

    Thanks for any suggestions,
    Stuart

    Stuart:

    This is usually due to a short in the high voltage coil that creates a spark to ignite the oil.

    Could you re-adjust your personal account so that you can receive personal messages---I'll give you a list of instructions if you want to try to repair this yourself.

    I think I updated my account to allow private messages.

    This is the unit I keep hitting the reset on:
