Good questions for servicing a residential steam boiler.
: So now the burner turns off after running for only a few seconds, and we aren't getting any hot water.
++ Nothing to be done there.. It isn't the time for an oil burner supervised hands-on course. You did as told - push the button once, then call the service department.
: There is the one knob (like an outdoor faucet) at the top of the glass tube, there are also two more knobs that are attached to spigots. all of these are on the left hand side of the boiler.
++ The water should be a little over the middle of the glass tube. If higher let some water out of the drain valve at the bottom of the boiler til it gets that low. If no glass tube, let water out of the bottom til the upper spigot has no water leaving.
: My question is does anyone know which knobs to turn, and how much... (like how open should the one on the glass tube be?) and which one of the two spigots do I turn on to let water out (the top or the bottom?).
++ They know because they read a service book, went to service classes, or had someone show them.
: When I open either of them, water comes out of both...
++ drain from the bottom til water doesn't come out the top spigot.
Wait for the serviceman.
: Thank you for your help.
