The spray nosal that feeds the burner is probably clogged you may have to pull the assembly out in order to get to it

SOURCE: clicks but wont fire

make sure the high voltage lead to the sparkplug isn't touching anything metal on its way to the plug. the clicking may be the high voltage discharging to a metal part, not the plug. those wires age during use.

SOURCE: flame sputters

Hey welcome to the world of oil burner service!! :-) Theyare a finnicky beast to say the least. The problem you are having sounds like an air mixture problem. A combustion analyser would be the best tool to have but being that you probably don't have that try this. On the left side of the burner as you are looking at it is an air adjust ment ring and a fine tuning ring. the fine tuning ring is probably all you need to adjust. There is a screw that is usually right behind or near the pipe coming out of the pump and going into the burner. Loosen that and turn the ring away from you just a bit to close off some of the air and you will be fine. The burner is running a bit to lean. If you can see the flame turn the adjustment closed just until the flame color turns from a almost white color to a slightly orange color. Then you should be fine. Good luck!!

There is a flame sensor inside the burner unit. The sensor is like a photo cell that must see the light of the flame or it will tell the burner control to stop the power. You need to see if there is a soot film on the lense of the sensor and make sure the sensor is aimed straight. If the sensor is clean and aimed straight (and the problem persists) then there may be a clogged nozzle that is giving a poor flame and the sensor does not see a good flame therefore shuts down the unit. If the nozzle is at fault, then you for sure need to replace the oil filter. New nozzles are $4-8 and the size & spray angle is stamped on the nozzle. If there is still a problem, then you need to see if the pump is giving approx. 100psi pressure, then finally (the last step) would be to replace the burner control $60. Goodluck< Macgivor

I have a maytag dryer about 5 yrs old heater will come on but motor will not run


I do not see how that is possible. The motor cent switch must be locked in the run position is all it could be if that is the case. To start the dryer you push a button on the timer or near it and that wiring goes to the start winding on the motor. When the motor come up to speed weights that are spring-loaded get trown out by the centrifugal force. The cent switch then allows the heater circuit to be energized.
Get in there with some cleaner and oil that sucker so it will slide and you might be able to get it to go a little bit more. Old heavy maytag dryers are worth the effort. Here\'s my pictorals

Dripping fuel from the bottom of the burner its a af15 beckett oil burner


Hi,
No, you should call a person that can service oil burners. Either the nozzle is bad and oil is dripping into the burner tube and running down or the nozzle is loose and the oil is running out from the threads of the nozzle. Either way the nozzle should be changed and the burner retuned with a combustion analyser..

Humming noise with my beckett burner


the beat i can do on this is an educated guess , it would be the pump or the pump motor bearings , but having said that i have also seen these make noise for years and not go out ,I have worked on oil burner about 35 years experience has taught me not to guess parts , so the advise i would give is to find the part and model numbers for the motor on the pump assembly and the pump try to find availability in your area , heating and cooling, hardware store ECT. and wait to see if becomes more defined or fails so you don't spend a fortune on parts you don't need ,**** make sure there are no oil ports on the pump motor bearings 9LITTLE OIL CAPS ECT OR PLASTIC PLUGS YOU CAN REMOVE TO OIL ) IF THERE IS PUT A COUPLE DROPS OF 3 IN 1 OIL AND SEE IF IT HELPS .

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.

Beckett home oil burner


problem is pump-must replace- there is a valve inside unit that holds pressure to about 150psi -it is leaking by when unit shuts down- causing problem. If left unrepaired you could blow chimeny connection with bad ignition. good luck
