I thought I would have this problem fix with putting in a baro damper but I guess not. I thought I had nice settings because I was getting what I THOUGHT was a good burn but I just can't seem to keep the fire lit for more than 24 hours. Waking up this morning at 5:30 and having to restart the boiler was not fun! Currently I"m running 4 teeth and about 5 air. My aquastat is set at 150 for the low and 200 for the high with a 5 differential. I tried the timer at 2.5 mins, 2 mins and 1.5 mins every thirty and it's either out when I get home from work or a practically out.
This is a pic of what it looked like after about an hour of burning this morning after it was first relit. I can all summer with settings of 140, 210, 1.5 timer and 5 differential. I don't know why all of the sudden it always does this to me in the fall. Any thoughts to maybe finally clear this up? It always seems to happen in the spring and fall on the "funny" weather days where maybe the heat will run for a cycle but then it's back on timer for the rest of the day.
Thanks in advance.

I was using 4 and 4 previously but I turned it up a bit trying to get a better burn when this all started. Maybe I'll turn it back to 4/4 with the differential of 15. I will have to get the manometer again this weekend. I set my drafts a while ago and I did do it when the fire was stoking for a while and was hot.
