i have a Firebird popular 70.
I've run out of oil before - then, with the progam switch on, and having bleed the air from the oil pipe, i've pressed the reset - the boiler has fired and started.
This time (having bleed the oil pipe), when I turn the programmer to 'on' the pump/boiler starts to 'run' and does not fire-up. If i press the reset, it stops the pump etc but when I release it, it continues to run but not fire.
other info - the boiler is 2 years old, when it was first put in it was left idle for weeks and did not work, an engineer found it to be 'filled' with water - after draining he got it working and it hasn't been a problem since.
I have not been using the boiler since August as I was away - could it be the same problem and where is the water coming from??
THANKS for any advice
