After having my annual cleaning of boilers, I noticed one of the boilers only stay on five minutes; what can I do to fix it?

Re: boiler

From the way your post reads, I assume you had the cleaning done by a boiler tech as an annual cleaning, in which case you call him/her back ASAP to have them come back & fix the problem---in such cases the job is guaranteed by the contractor & they are responsible to fix it.

It's not that uncommon to have a boiler fail after a cleaning due to a minor problem (especially an oil-fired unit) where the fuel line loses its prime because of an air leak from one of the replaced components.
