Help with steam boiler

@ November 5, 2013 11:08 PM in Help with steam boiler

I turned up my thermostat and there was no heat coming out of the radiator so I thought the pilot must be out. So I went and checked the boiler and the pilot was indeed out. I relit it and left it on. I come home and noticed that the pilot was out again. I relit it and ran it for 15 minutes before noticing that no heat was coming out of the radiators. I then noticed that there was no water in the glass tube level thingee. So I thought maybe I should turn on the manual water feed valve to give it some water. when I did that, the boiler started steaming and then water started leaking from the boiler. Did I just crack and ruin my boiler from the thermal shock? Please help a newbie homeowner.
