Andrew Smith :

Sounds like air and the boiler has overheated, does the pump run?

JACUSTOMER-okhs45le- :

Not sure. I think it runs. how does the boiler overheat when it isn't lit?

JACUSTOMER-okhs45le- :

is there an initialisation process to light the pilot light?

Andrew Smith :

It should be fan, air pressure switch, pilot, main burner

Andrew Smith :

Are you getting anything?

Andrew Smith :

Can you press and hold the reset for at least 6 seconds and tell me what happens?
