They only list the year on these. Second and third number of the serial number

Not always. I had a Series #3 a few months ago. No plates or marks where one may have been anywhere else (full access 3ft around). Never did arrive at an answer to that one. If I remember right, it was reference dated late 1930's. (Didn't have the Weil-McLain contact info back then).

I'm going to say 1932.

Hmmm sounds crazy but the home is a 1925 brick bungalow.
may be time to replace.:)

Just i thought Bob it looks more like late 50's early 60's just from the style.
Any serial numbers on the burner?

I'd give Weil-McLain a buzz, and see if they can help

Pre-60's. I'm gonna say 1955. BTW- The CP numbers started in '77.

Either that or no water, blockage,etc.Could be a lot of things but why not just call the HVAC guy?

Honestly would not try to fix it unless my neighbor with trade skills came over to lend a hand.
Forum advice does not always translate to skills.
