------------------------------------- Is is possible that the circulator turns off when the burner turns on? This would only require the burner to heat the 17 gallons of water in the boiler - which would take about 2 minutes to heat up by 10 degrees. Takes about 4000 BTU. If the circulator would continue to circulate while the burner runs it would have additional load and would not cycle so shortly.
