Have it professionally serviced by the most expensive guy in town. this seems crazy i know but, having an oil furnaced serviced by less than a pro is silly. you need a new nozzle, a new filter, and set position of ignitors,. be sure tank is ful , 8 inches or more. check to see if transformer draws a spark, 1.5 inches or longer. so many things can aflict an oil gun. good luck

My oil burner trips the m.c.b, what is the cause?


Commonly Reported HVAC Problems: [Copyright © 1996-2011. Hannabery HVAC. All rights reserved.]That would be the little red button on the box at the oil burner itself. If your oil burner stops running the first thing you should check is the reset button. If you press it and the burner fires up then that was the problem. If the button should trip again then there is a definite problem and you should schedule a service call immediately. Do not keep resetting the button and ignoring the problem. afg-redbut.jpg Now, what is this button and why does it trip? It is a safety device. It shuts the burner down when it thinks there is a problem. It is on the primary control and is hooked-up to a cad cell. A light sensor. (The same thing that turns outside lights on at dusk.)
On a call for heat, with the burner running, the cad cell senses the light of the flame. If it stops sensing the light of the flame, it causes the red button to trip, shutting down the burner before any significant damage is done. Next question. Why would the sensor stop sensing light while the burner is running? Many reasons. Almost all of which require a service call. Below is a list of possible causes and things to check. Items in blue usually require a service call. Items in red however can be addressed, even fixed by the homeowner.
  • Faulty or dirty cad cell
  • Faulty primary control
  • Bad or weak ignition transformer
  • Bad burner motor
  • Bad fuel pump
  • Blocked oil filter, strainer or nozzle
  • Delayed oil valve not opening (some units)
  • Cracked electrodes
  • Improperly set electrodes
  • Air in fuel line
  • Burner running with a very high smoke
  • Burner sooted-up
  • Loose electrical connections
  • Damaged flexible coupling
  • Water in oil tank

  • Out of oil - Have your tank filled
  • Chimney blocked - Have it cleaned
  • Closed oil valve - Open valve
  • Air, Pump not primed - Prime pump - may need to call for service

Smart Filters
The bottom causes in red are common problems and can be addressed by the homeowner. Try to check for these conditions first before calling for service. Hope this helps, remember - these are just rough guidelines and not all possible situations are covered.

I found this article on the Web So I can't take credit for it..... But it is a very good place to start for your problem It is what I would start checking if you called me for service .......Good Luck

My oil burner blows smoke when it kicks on, then after 3 times it shuts down smoke test is good, new nozzle what else can i check?


There should be an air adjustment collar on the oil pump side of the burner. Give it a bit more air. Have you replaced the oil filter and oil pump strainer? Flip open the transformer on the top of the oil burner and look for a small black round cylinder. This is your Cad cell eye. Take a paper towel and polish the end that looks down the burner tube. You did not mention how long the unit fires prior to shutting down, could be a bad primary control.

Flame goes on than out and keeps doing that wont stay lit!!


I'm assuming you're referring to a gas burner that supplements the heat pump. If the burner lights at all, The ignition system is working. If you need to reset it for it to relight, I would suspect the thermocouple. It detects the flame to prevent gas from pouring out of an unlit burner. If it malfunctions, the control thinks the burner didn't light and shuts down for safety.

Pilot light


Assuming that your make up air and exhaust hood are properly balanced, no negetive pressure conditions exist, your gas manifold pressure is at 4" wc, your air/gas mix on the burner set correctly, the your problem would be the pilot adjustment. If the flame is not intense enough flame to survive the sudden air shock, it will go out.

The pilot height should be about 1 1/2". Your Pilot orfice could also need cleaning. Eliminate excessive draft in your kitchen.

Here is the manual for your unit, it covers these topics.

3 year old Beckett AFG with Clean-Cut system. New inline filter new strainer, new nozzle, flame looks correct in pattern always. Flame does not sputter prior to shut-off. I did notice that when it shut off...


Called Beckett at 1-800-OIL-BURN and explained the problem. They told me that the solenoid on the oil pump (Clean Cut) was the cause. I purchased a new pump for $50 at the local plumbing supply and installed it. Problem solved.

My becket honeywell r7184p oil burner monitor is not resetting it keeps blinking a fast green. What should i be looking for?


my Beckett oil burner with a honeywell R7184P just did the same thing. Quit burning, blinks for half a second. The burner says press reset once, if it does not reset then call a local serviceman. It is cold here in Alaska, you betcha', and my oil must have jelled up. It happened once, but pressing reset solved my problem, two days later it stopped again. I applied heat (hair dryer) to my supply line, added an anti-jelling solution to my tank. Here is what I found.

"The Honeywell R7184P-1080 (interrupted control—transformer shuts down 10 seconds after flame is established) is now the standard control used on all Beckett oil burners along with the new “Cleancut” pump. The Honeywell control has both a 15 second pre-purge and a 15 second post purge feature, as well as internal self-checking of the control itself. The control has 15 second lockout timing plus a 10 second ignition carry over period. After 3 lockouts during the same call for heat, the control goes into restricted lockout., A restricted lockout condition may be reset by holding the reset button down for 30 seconds until the LED flashes twice. At any time the control is powered, the reset button may be held for 30 seconds to reset the lockout counter. There are several new “Service Features” with the R7184P control that make for easier servicing."

You have to press the reset button for thirty seconds. I don't know how cold it it there, or what number oil you guys are burning, but what I do know is that you guys have been pressing your reset button more than once.

This worked for me. Good luck.
