You boiler is more than likely low on water. There is normally an automatic water feed. When you bleed a system the pressure naturally drops but is compensated by additional water feed into system. You have a problem in the pressure make-up water feed to your system.

Hi, my firebrid 115 wouldnt start tuedsay after running out of oil, had a deliverary of oil and my oil man bled the boiler as it had a air lock, the heating was working fine the rest of the day and a


He may have bled the lines but did he also bleed the fuel filter as well. All oil tanks have an oil filter in them, sometimes two. He could hav bleed the lines but still had some residual air in the line, the filter, or somewhere else along the supplu side. I"m sure if you call and explain the situation they will come and rebleed the rest of the air out of the system,especially if you're a regular customer. Also have them check the tank fuel filter, if it's clogged that too would keep oil from getting to the burners.

Taps get hot water the rads dont


The Tap water comes from a Domestic water heater. The radiators are heated from a separate source, usually a boiler of some kind. Follow the piping back to that source and see if it is heating. Next, if it has a pump it should be running. Last, look for air bleed ports on each radiator and bleed out any air in them. If nothing comes out when bleeding, air or water, look around the boiler for a water valve and add water till all the radiators are full. If you need more information, write back and try to be more specific. thank you for asking. Please grade the amount of help this has covered. Thanks again. Roger

Aga wont relight after running out of oil, could the oil tank filter be blocked i would of thought if this was the case we would have difficulty restarting the oil powered boiler


It is possible that a little extra sludge could have collected in the filter and restricted oil flow but I think your problem is more likely air in the fuel line and pump. There is a bleeder valve on the bottom of the pump. The pump is located on the burner where the oil line is connected. Usually it takes a 3/8 inch box end wrench to turn it. Once you locate it, turn it counter clockwise to loosen it. Use a container to catch the fuel that comes out while you bleed it. Turn the burner on while you have the bleeder open and let it bleed until the burner lights or locks out. If it locks out reset it and do it again. If you don`t get any fuel you`ll know the filter is in fact plugged and will need changed and the bleeding process done after that. If the burner lights, close the bleeder and you are good.

Ran out of oil, now refilled, but boiler won't ignite. Tried all as owners manual instructs, but still keeps locking out - help please


After running out of fuel,you need to bleed the oil pump on your burner.There should be a 3/8 bleed port on the bottom of your burner pump. The bleeder valve looks like a nipple. A 3/8 opened end will fit over it.Put a can or cup under it,open it a bit and reset your control.when pure oil comes out close it and burner will fire.If your not good with it you should get a tech or handy man to do it.

why do you need to bleed the boiler. this just means drain it. if it is air locked at the rads you need to get rid of the air
