So is this normal?
Thanks for any advice. Learning everday
Yep pretty much normal. Remember this. The boiler fan is running and it is feeding coal to get it up to temp. Then when the temp is reached, it just shuts off the fan. That coal that was getting up to temp, will still keep burning after the fan shuts off. The rise in temp is called overshoot and is quite normal.
As C12 stated, you may be able to turn back the temp now already. This will only cause the boiler to work just a little harder to get up to temp. That's all.
As far as it going out....... after I turn off my AA 260, the fire will still be burning 2 days later. Your 130 would probably go 24 hours before needing the fan to kick back on with the timer.
