Thank you for responding, I had 2 professionals come in, one told me to change the low water cutoff, he thought the sensor was starting to fail, the other told me that he would rewire the low water cut off so it will not kick off after the 40 minutes, which didn't sound right to me plus he want to charge me 800 to do so. I will look again at the pressure, the settings on the pressuretrol are set at 8lbs with a 1 lb differential. If the pressure was set to high shouldn't the boiler still work when I bypassed it? and why would this problem start now. If it matters I also replace some a few vents on the radiators (around the same time this all started happening).

: I suspect the pressure is set too high over 1 psig, the necessary pressure for a home
: AND the vents are vacuum vents, and the burner is smaller than necessary.

: There certainly is no reason to have expected that a low water cutoff that worked needed to be replaced.

: In other words, you need a dependable pro to go in there to determine what you haven't said to get a start as to where the problem is. There is no single magic bullet that takes one minute to get exactly the cause.
