What to do if you run out of Fuel Oil - Beckett Oil Burner Problems

Running your furnace out of heating oil is not that uncommon. There are many different things that can go wrong to cause you to run out. If this happens to you do not panic, you can get your oil burner running rather quickly. You just need to know what to do.

You forgot to order more heating oil for your heater and now you have run it out of oil. The first thing you need to do is find a container that will hold at least five gallons of liquid. A container that is approved for flammable liquids is always the best.

Next, locate the closest gas station or convenience store that sells either regular diesel, off road diesel, or kerosene. Any one of these will work to get you going. Make sure that you never use any type of gas in your oil burner!

You will need to add at least five gallons to get the level of the liquid in the fuel tank over the oil intake pipe so that you can prime the pump. When you get the fuel poured into the tank you should wait at least ten minutes to let the fuel settle before you try to light the burner. Dumping the new fuel into the tank with very little liquid in there will stir up the sludge in the bottom of the tank. If you try to pull oil into the burner while the sludge is suspended you will then create more problems.

When you have the fuel in the tank you can begin to start the burner. If you have a TigerLoop installed in your fuel line then just by pushing the reset button you can purge the air. With a couple of clicks of the reset button you will be heating again. If you do not have a TigerLoop but the burner pump has a two pipe system the oil pump will usually purge the air, but it may take a few resets to get it going. If you have only a single pipe system, then look for my tip on bleeding your pump.

Running your oil burner out of oil will sometimes happen. You can fix the problem if you know what you need to do. Usually this always happens on the coldest night of the year or on that holiday weekend when a service call to the heating oil company will cost you an arm and a leg just to get you warm again. Now you can get your family warm till you can get the tank your oil tank filled at a reasonable cost.

My kerosene monitor heater with the model number M441 isnt workin correctly , ive changed the filter outside that goes into the tank and replaced the burner and still it isnt working , the burner status...

First thing to do is clean the flame rod. Take the black grill off of the front of the heater (6 ro 7 screws). Now locate the flame rod. It is beside the window where you can look into the burner. It has one wire going to it. Be careful so you don't damage the gasket. The rod goes in then straight down, so you will have to turn it to get it out. You can clean it with some steelwool or emory cloth. Reinstall it and try the heater.
Listen to the heater. If it cuts off, does the fuel pump start making a thumping before the heater cuts off? If it does, the heater is running out of fuel for some reason. I know you checked the filter, but did you check the strainer in the fuel sump. You can find it on the right side of the heater at the bottom. Make sure you turn off the fuel at the barrel before you remove it and have some rags ready to soak up the kerosene that will come out. Clean the filter with some kerosene if it needs it.
Let me know what you find and don't forget to rate my answer. Thanks.

Ignites /starts will cut out after a few minutes

There are several reasons as to why this happens, and with that being said there are several things to correct this problem. I do this as preventative maintenance, remove the top section of the burner tube, this exposes the entire burner tray and internal parts. Locate the nozzle and remove it, they say you can not clean these, I say with a Q-tip, tooth pick and carb cleaner you can with out damaging it. Now behind the nozzle is a screen assembly these corrode at times so make sure to clean it as well.After cleaning up assemblies put the nozzle and filter screen back together.Next is the flame sensor, it is located below the nozzle assembly, round in shape and has a lens of sorts at the front. These collect carbon deposits, dirt, and the occasional homeless insect. It can be cleaned with a soft terry cloth rag and windex, now inspect the fuel lines for cracks, holes, or dry rot, replace if necessary. Locate the fuel pump next, on the back of it there is a foam air filter, this I clean with dawn dish soap rinse and dry really good, then put it back. Trace the fuel lines back to where they come thru the burner tube, now remove the side cover, you should see the fuel line and it goes to an in line filter. Remove the filter and I use a compressor and blow gun to clean it by blowing air backwards thru the filter, instantly clean. Inspect your lines again, replace if necessary. Replace side cover and open the fuel tank, lean the heater so the fuel runs towards the fuel filler opening. You are looking to see if water is in the tank, this happens from condensation when in storage. If there is I drain the fuel in to a clean five gallon bucket, now the fuel will float on top of the water and you should be able to see it.If there is water try to dry out the tank with a rag and remove as much water as you can. You can siphon off the fuel from the water and reuse it if you like just be careful not to siphon to far and get the water. Fill your heater with fuel, put cover back on the heater and plug it in, it should now fire up like new. Good luck

I have a all pro R60A that turns on but shuts right off and blows tons of smoke out after shutting off.

These heaters have several things that happen to them while in storage. I do a yearly check on mine and it goes like this. Open the fuel tank and tilt the heater to see fuel at the filler hole, look at the fuel and tank you are looking for any water in the tank. Condensation is usually the culprit, what I do is drain the tank in to a clean five gallon bucket and the fuel floats on top of the water. If you see water use a rag and try to dry out the tank as best as you can. You can also siphon off the fuel for reuse just be careful not to siphon to much and get the water again. Next remove the top section of the heater tube, this exposes all of the internal burner parts. Locate the burner tray and remove it so you can access the fuel nozzle. Remove the nozzle, they say you cannot clean these but I say different. You need a Q-tip, tooth pick and carb cleaner and clean it up carefully so you do not damage the nozzle. Behind the nozzle is a screen these like to corrode so clean it real good too. Put the nozzle assembly back together, inspect your fuel lines for cracks, dry rot or holes and replace if necessary. At the bottom of the assembly there is a sensor for flame these collect carbon deposits,dirt and the occasional homeless insect. Clean this with windex and a soft terry cloth rag. Put the burner tray back together. Trace the fuel lines back to where they come thru the heater tube and now remove the side cover. You will find the fuel line and an in line filter remove the filter and clean this with a compressor and blow gun by blowing air backwards thru the filter. This instantly cleans the filter, now put it back together after inspecting the fuel lines,and replacing it if necessary. Put the side cover back on and go to the fuel/ air pump on the back of this there should be an air filter usually foam, clean this with dawn dish soap and dry really good before putting it back in.Inspect and clean igniter while you are inside the heater, then put the top section back together. Now you are ready to plug your heater back in and test it. If all went well you should be heating like it did when it was new. Just a tip for you is to look at the fuel coming out the nozzle it should be a fog not droplets, if droplets your nozzle needs changed. Pay attention to spray angle and GPH rating very very important.

There are several things that you can do to this heater and I have made it a yearly practice to pull this preventative maintenance. Here we go, remove the top section of the heater tube this exposes all of the internal workings of the heater. Locate the burner tray, on the front is a brass nozzle which they say you can not clean. I say with carb cleaner a q-tip and tooth pick you can, in behind the nozzle a screen assembly clean this too they like to corrode. Put the nozzle assembly back together and inspect all fuel lines for cracks, holes,and dry rot replace if necessary. At the bottom of the burner tray there is a round item, this is your flame sensor. These are known to collect carbon deposits, dirt, and occasional homeless insect, clean it with windex and a soft terry cloth rag. Now put the burner tray back in the heater. Trace the fuel lines down to where they come thru the case, remove the side panel cover here is where you will find the fuel line and an in line filter. Remove the fuel filter and I use a compressor and blow gun to clean these, simply blow air backwards thru the filter and instantly it's clean. Inspect those lines again if all is good put filter and lines back together and replace the side cover. on the back of the fuel pump is a foam rubber air filter, wash it out I use dawn dish soap, but dry it real good then put it back in. Now replace the top and I want you to open the fuel tank and tilt your heater towards the fuel opening, you are looking to see if there is water from condensation while being stored. If there is empty the tank in to a five gallon bucket, oil is lighter than water so fuel floats to the top. You can either throw it out and dry out your fuel tank or siphon off the fuel and reuse it, just be careful not to get any of the water. Now you are ready to test your heater.Plug it in and you should be up and running like new again.Good luck

My monitor 2200 heater is leaking fuel what could be the problem

That depends on where the leak is. If it is leaking out of the fuel sump the needle valve in the sump could be stuck or just leaking by so that the sump is over flowing. You could also make sure the fuel line fittings are tight where it connects to the pump and the burner chamber. If you are using an internal tank you should take the tank out and look down in the heater for kerosene. Check the fuel fittings in the back of the heater. Has the heater been working? If has gone through several attempts to start but hasn't lit kerosene could be built up in the burner and you should check the igniter. Also you would want to dry up any excess kerosene in of the burner. There are also some o-rings in the fuel pump itself but I wouldn't think they would be leaking. Basically there are not a lot of places it could be leaking just follow the fuel line from the back of the heater to the burner. You may need to wipe up the kerosene and then look for a drip. Hope this helps.

R150B Kerosene Reddy Heater-

Neither of you state the model of heater that is giving you starting problems. many of the motors have an external starting capacitor (relay). If so, you may just need that part, if your heater is equipped with one. On the other hand, many have an internal capacitor , which is not servicable.

Wick and manual for Montgomery Wards Windsor kerosene heater

Hi, I have a Montgomery Ward Sunheat heater. It's a dual burner enclosed type with a door on the front. The fuel tank is cylindrical and about 1 1/2 - 2 gallons. The cap has a needle valve and when turned upside down releases fuel to the burners by gravity. The whole heater itself is rectangular with louvers on the sides and top. I don't know what wicks go in this or if there are compatible replacements out there.
No 84ALO5800A is the only I.D. or Model No.
