Carlin EZ gas burner

Hi !
Just converted from oil to gas using the Carlin EZ gas burner installed by a professional. When I set the thermostat to 70 degrees, the furnace does not turn on although the room temp. says 62. When I manually turn the furnace switch off and then turn it back on the furnace starts working and heat comes out. The thermostat is manual and the it makes a click noise when the temp. reaches the set temp and turns the furnace off. So in short everything I dial my t'stat to increase the temp. I have to manually go and turn on the furnace switch to get heat. I have already replaced the t'stat but nothing has changed. Please advice to what may be the cause so that I can have a professional fix it. Thanks a lot !

Call back the professional who installed it to fix it.

If you're going to call a different professional, they should be able to diagnose the problem. That's why they are a professional.

It sounds like it's going into a lockout, and turning the power switch off and back on resets it. Call the guy who installed it.

You need a professional if you didn't figure out if the thermostat is broken before replacing it.

A thermostat is a dry contact switch. There will be 2 LV DC wires coming from "the house" (thermostat+random safety sensors) to the burner control. If there are more wires, then ignore this advice. The wires to the house should measure less than 1 ohm/0.0 if there is a call for heat. If you shore with alligator clips the 2 terminals in the burner control, you will be pretending to be a thermostat and turn the burner on.

As already said in this thread, if you have to power cycle it, a safety sensor went off somewhere and that is beyond your skill set to fix. Worst case scenario if you fix it yourself, explosion/house fire or carbon monoxide death.
