I need to know the problems exposed when the Honeywell controller on our burner for the boiler blinks


Customer Replay

If you find that you keep having to reset your boiler, it's likely that there could be a fault with your heating system. This fault could eventually lead to a more serious issue such as a boiler breakdown, so it's best to seek out a solution as soon as possible.

that is what I am trying to do. The steam boiler filled with water the other day, it shut down on high water as it should. This is fixed now and it seems to be working properly except the power light continues to blink instead of remain on. Is that a problem?
I know that when a certain blinking of the status lights occur, it tells you the problem. Where can I find the status of these blinking lights?

Got it!
Please allow me a moment to provide you with further instructions, I would really appreciate it if you would wait for me in the chat. Thank you!
If the batteries are dying, your thermostat could be blinking the “Cool On” message. When your thermostat doesn't have enough power, it won't be able to start the cooling or heating process. To properly check your batteries, look for the “Battery Low Indicator” message on the thermostat display.

it is not the thermostat it is the controller for the burner on our boiler.
can I send you a picture?

In this case, you need to reset your Honeywell burner control. Please follow these instructions.
Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.
When the LED flashes once for one second, the device has reset.
The R7184 will enter the lockout mode when: Flame is detected during valve-on delay.
Please keep me posted.
