Bill can't you run the timer every Hr. like 2 min. I have been doing that setting since I started the boiler in Oct. The only
time I had a fire out is when I was playing with the feed rate. I set it on one tooth 2.5 lbs hr it went for three days then
out it went but I should of went with 2 min every 30 min instead of 2 every hr. I think it will work but won't play with it
until spring comes. Try 2 min every hr. If the fire goes out bump it to 3 mins every hr. I know with my will - burt timer
it will run twice on the 30 min cycle setting and once on the hr cycle setting .
