My boiler fires up, but only stays lit for 5 minutes then it cuts out so that just the pilot light is still on.
Hi , sounds like your pump is stuck or you have air in the system stopping proper flow and eventually cutting out on the stat. Open the pump bleed screw and with a towel underneath try and spin the rotor with a screw driver . also check all manual bleeds valves and open to release possible air that may have built up over the summer
