-if the fuel is liquid (i.e. heating oil) there will be a filter which is likely the cause of the lack of fuel delivery....this is a $15 filter...available at many hardware stores..or even you fuel supplier
-the process is simple.

  1. ..TURN OFF THE FUEL (above/b4 filter)...
  2. spin off the filter...replace with the new one
  3. open the valve...bleed the system (don't screw the housing tight...let the fuel push the air out...ie. wait until the fuel spurts out the filter screws (this can be sorta messy)
  4. tighten filter...tada!
  5. if it works temporarily...then repeats the 'pop...goes out' then you still have air in the line
  6. if you followed the above steps 1-5...then we know it between filter and burner
  7. look at the bottom of the burner for the bleeder valve/screw...similar to car brake bleeder screw or a 1/2inch valve
  8. use a wrench...1/4 to loosen (have small bucket handy to collect fuel
  9. press & HOLD the red button to fire (note the fuel will now be pumped out the bleeder valve)
  10. wait a second or 2 for the 'stream' of fuel to be solid (ie. no bubbles in it)
  11. then tightten the valve the 1/4 turn...and release
  12. occassially you have to repeat this process a few times depending upon the length of fuel line
PLEASE BE CAREFUL....while the above is technically not difficult..you are dealing with a somewhat flamable liquid...(a bucket of fuel oil is actually difficult to light)...the 1st time is a steep learning curve...but after that you can do it in your sleep :)

if you are uncomfortable at all...then call a fuel burner technician...please!

Tractor runs for a while then shuts down


You didn't stat in your question,what model tractor you are referring to. I have found,at times when this happens. The Coil(s),break down when heated and the coil shorts out. A cooling off period,will usually allow the engine to restart. After awhile the failing coil,will heat up again,causing engine shut down.You will have to determine,which coil is failing,if the engine has duel coils.If you have duel coils or a single coil rotate engine,by hand and watch for a spark at the plug. You have to turn on the ignition switch to do this,so be careful when you rotate the engine it may start.I believe the safety switches will prevent this,but anything could happen. Murphy's Law! B.

Furnace stops before house warms up

Chevrolet silverado stalling at times


Possible that the fault is related to the ignition unit. it will be good to take a code check. Possible that the fuel pump pressure is also checked.
This must be done only when the fault occurs, it will be best to check the electrical connections of the ignition unit.

Lennox g1703-75-1 resetable switch periodically opens.


Might check you entering and leaving gas pressure first. The gas manifold I'd designed for a certain amount or positive pressure. If its a flue restriction, the induced draft motors' pressure switch wouldn't close, normally. The orifice may be damaged, crooked, or dirty? If it's just the 1 acting this way, inspect the orifice. Some furnaces have a piece of metal, inside the heat exchanger, that sends the flame/heat in a spiral form. Peer inside the openings to the heat exchanger. You should be able to see them if present. Hope this helps!

How do I set the heat at 75 with no fan mode. I don't want the fan to come on once the room reaches 75


Hi, there is no way that this can be done. The fan is controlled by several different parts for the furnace to run properly. If you are saying that the fan continues to run after it reaches its set point, this is normal if it only runs for about a minute and 1/2. This is to cool down the heat exchanger. If it continues to run all the time after reaching its 75 degree set-point, you have a fan relay that is sticking internally, or a high limit switch that has failed and depending on how old the unit is, it may be what is called a combination fan/limit control that has dirty or burned contacts which will keep the fan on. What I am trying to say, is when your unit reaches the temperature you want, the fan should only run a short time as the limit controls are there to shut it down from a setting on the fan control that is preset by the factory. If you can give me more information on your unit such as model, serial, name of unit, and if it is a gas fired central heat and air unit, or heat only, a heat-pump ect. would be of a big help to determine what controls you have on this unit that is keeping the fan on. Leave this info in the comment thread for my user name, and I will get back to you.

Hi,
It could be a bad compressor, circuit board, or maybe even a sensor or dehumidistat...

You may have a low pressure or high pressure switch tripping out the board as well. You might try cleaning both the indoor (evaporator) coil and the outdoor (condensing) coil. Be sure to turn off the power source before servicing this.
