View Full Version : Weil McLain qb-180 burner going to lockout
05-02-2007, 08:16 PM
I have a Weil oil boiler with a qb-180 burner on it. It keeps going to lockout intermittantly. I thought it might be the control, so I replaced it but the same result. I hit the reset button and she fires up fine every time.
I know the qb-180 has been discontinued and can be troublesome...any ideas/suggestions? The line is flowing and the filter was changed a couple months ago and I have a recent nozzle.
I'm thinking maybe cad cell or electrodes. Any help?

Ignition transformer? Draft? Pump seal?

Just call your oil company to come and fix it.

I tried the oil company and all they did was clean everything and replace the filter/nozzle. Of course it fires up and they say looks good.
Because this is intermittent, its going to be a little trial and error I think. That is why I was thinking of replacing less expensive, prone to failure parts.
Any good suggestions? The oil company calls will get real expensive quick...I could almost make the case to buy a new burner to replace mine.

If you keep replacing the so called less expensive parts, you'll have enough money into it to have bought a new burner.
Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to give you hints or ideas of what I think it might be.

You should have called the oil company back and told them its doing the same thing again.
And if they don't have anybody that can fix it. You'll call another oil company to fix it and buy your oil from there instead.
They'll get the right guy out then.
Beckett makes a nice replacement burner for that boiler that installs and works very well. ask your oil company about this.
