My problem has diagnosed as the following

> Bill,
> Paul talked to ITR yesterday we found that they installed the hi limit switch. The switch should have an air gap of 3/16" from heat exchanger and yours is touching the heat exchanger. The o-ring holding the stat is rotted and the bracket is slightly bent. I have ordered a new Hi-limit switch from ITR. I also found that you have a coolant leak at the coolant stir pump, Paul pulled off the pump and it is cracked.
> Thanks,
>

another lost thread re appearance !
My hurricane runs fine 90 % of the time, then it starts to play up with lots of 'flame out's then if i keeping switching on and off will start working fine again.
When you look at the flame when running it looks good

whats ive checked so far
Lots of fuel in tank
New racor fuel filter
No fuel leaks
Water level fine
no water leaks
Ive removed ignitor and looks fine with about 3 mm of end of electrode discoloured ie where it has been burning
I presume the high limit switch is the one in the first photo next to the heat exchanger as there another 7 on the burner itself, the second photo
Should I just try and force it away from the exchanger a few thou ?

cheers andy

Last year and about 3 since prior flush & fill, mine started unexpectedly shutting down. Flush and fill with thorough cleaning of burner chamber fixed. If you haven’t done a flush recently, you might consider doing that before taking more drastic steps. Be sure to get ALL air out of both loops when you do it. Sorry have not needed to do any of those further steps...

I had a similar problem a few years ago. I found the fuel line was frayed on the inside, obstructing the flow, by someone servicing prior to my owning it.

I would consider changing the flame detector, especially since you say the flame looks good. If it is intermittent it would shut you down, but then allow a restart. Wouldn’t be a bad thing to have a spare and quick to change out to test.
