Question about Heating & Cooling

Riello oil burner RDB with red plastic cover at the front wont ignite. I've tried bleeding the valve. The motor seems to make an electrical humming noise for about 12 secs, then the system attempts to ignite with a click noise which lasts for about 4 secs before switching off again

The motor should spin when the boiler is switched on. One end of the motor spins the fan the other end works the pump. The control box then starts the transformer that starts a spark. The control box then opens up the oil. The boiler should then light if any of the above or the boiler does not light, the boiler will go to lockout.
From what you say the motor is not spinning, thus it could be the motor or more like the pump.

YOU SHOULD NOT PLAY WITHE THE PUMP

If the wrong setting is made it could 1 burn out the back of your boiler 2 go to soot and the boilers in an hour would be filled up and become a fire risk. 3 not start at all if the setting is too low it is a fine line to get it to work and needs the right tools.

oil eng.

If the moror just humes then locks out, more that likely the capacitor (small white cylinder like object below control box), get yourself a 5uf capacitor, 2 wires, jobe done!!

Riello oil burner runs for 2 seconds and then stops ??


1. Take off the red cover which is held on by a screw.

2. Use an allan key to loosen the screw facing you.

3. Turn on boiler. The boiler will draw the oil through and bubbles of air will escape through the screw you have loosened.

4. When it is just oil coming through the cracks around the screw, re-tighten the screw and turn on again.

Riello oil burner RDB Hi everybody i have a Riello oil burner RDB . I am wondering is there a way to make it more oil efficient?


does it have the air damper installed? You can add a magic heater to the flue and dump heat into your basement.. thats maybe 5 to 10 percent more efficient

Oil went too low, now don't start


There is a bleed screw on the pump, turn a 1/4 turn to the left, and bleed until oil is free of oil. On older pumps, instead or a bleeder valve it is just a plug, you will have to remove the plug, bleed, then replace the plug

Riello 40 F5 oil burner, on boiler, intermittently running


with a forced draught burner the fan motor would be checked via a pressure switch. if the pressure switch is not set correctly or the fan is too weak the contacts will not be made in the switch and the burner will lockout. if the damper is not open enough when the fan runs then the air supply will be too small for the switch to make. check to see if you have a capacitor on the fan windings if this is faulty then the fan will fail intermittently.

Riello burner will not pump oil to nozzel to burn.


Revisit the photocell:
1. Check if you connected the socket end, into the two pins properly, as it is possible to miss a pin.
2. Try to borrow a working photocell or use yours in another burner to make a determination.

Replace the nozzle, don't try and clean it. After the burner runs a few seconds, do you have to reset the control (red button) before it will start again? Does it sound like there is a pulsation in the flame when it starts or it is running out of oil? You may have a bad ignition control. Start with the small stuff, nozzle, strainer filter, oil tank filter and then work to the more complicated.
