    Some ideas, -
    Disconnect any air snorkel.
    or
    Replace nozzle, as even a brand new nozzle could be faulty or get damaged
    or
    Check if air shutter is actually moving
    Check air route including fan and to blast tube is all clear and no dead mouse, etc.
    Consider possibility burner motor might be running slow, although unlikely.
    Keep oil pressure to what it should be, - really best it is at the higher setting

    Sterling job!
    Surprised a mouse could get into that Sterling burner.
    The B11 burners are always a problem and just a large mouse trap

    It's branded as Trianco but it looks very much like an RDB1 and there's no snorkel on it at all.

    New nozzle at service around 6 weeks ago. Changed it again when I changed the pump. Nothing in the airways, Motor appears to be running well, and the air shutter look as though it's moving but I didn't take it apart to check so that might be the problem

    I know there is an obvious reason for you to say this but why take a baffle out? I they're all clean then surely it can't be to do with that?

    I find a lot of the Riello RDB burners have the plastic air adjustment door seized or/and the adjustment bolt thread slipping. I remove the top air cover and take a look at it while adjusting air. Lots of them I have to manually push them with a screwdriver while using Allen key on air screw.
    I would think highly likely to be the problem.
