Does the fan run?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes I think so
Expert:  Andrew Smith replied 4 years ago.
The fan should run for about 5 or 6 seconds before going to the next stage?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Runs less than 5 then goes to lockout
Expert:  Andrew Smith replied 4 years ago.
Ok.
You have replaced the control box, but the oiler does not know the fan is running.
Is there a model number on the burner so I dig out the wiring diagram?
