i just went to a friend's to try to help her get her heat going.
she has a very old burnham "holiday" natural gas boiler, had been shut off all summer from the kill switch.
the pilot light was out, i found it and relit it, but when i went to turn the boiler back on, nothing happened. the "taco" power box lit up, but there was no flame inside except for the pilot, even with the t-stat calling for heat.
any ideas? she has a natural gas domestic water heater, which is working, so she must be getting gas...
