Have you tried to wipe off the fire eye on the unit if it has one? If it's dirty too then it will not see the flame and not let the unit come on correctly. Good Luck and have a Happy New Year.

Have strong oil smell when riello 40 oil burner starts up


I looked at the drawings from this unit and it is completely sealed between the heat exchanger and supply air. So you should not smell oil at any time you have a leak some place look for that .

If the stack blower (fan) does not start when you select heat, the fan control may be defective. If the igniter does not heat up long enough to cause the thermocouple to open the gas valve and fire the burner, the igniter is defective. If the igniter heats long enough but the burner doesn't fire up, the thermocouple is defective.

Pilot light out....buderus furnace but a red riello ingniter on the front....I've watched my fuel guy flash a light into it this baby when out before but need to do it myself now.....could you walk me thru...


This is due to a "Lock-Out" Check your flame sensor for carbon build up. Possible heat exchanger blockage.
The reason he used a flashlight was to trick the burner into seeing a flame, not a good idea for a novice.

I have a central air and heat heat uses gas so when the heat is on should the main fan be turning


Typical systems are designed with a thermostatic "fan limit switch" which protrudes into the heater (house air portion of the passages). The "fan limit switch" is mounted to, and protrudes into the duct within the burner section of the heater, near the heated metal.

This switch triggers the circulating fan to turn on only after the sensor (thus air) within the duct has reached well above ambient temperature. This design prevents the fan from coming on sooner and the system blowing cold air, which people don't like.

Depending on system design, installation and current operating conditions, the time delay from main burners on to fan on can be up to a couple of minutes.

This same limit switch, if the temperature goes high enough, will also turn the gas valve off; a fire safety function.

99 ford windstar hearter is blowing light warm air but not enough to warm or defrost. the air works. checked all fuses no propblem there. dont know what the propblem is. just got the blender door fixed...


i have a 99 ford also. the same thing happened to me. this is a few things i did to solve the problem.... my knob to turn from heat to cool was stripped out. i glued it and it worked for awhile. after that it did the same thing again. then i found out that my thermostat was bad and was not letting the fluid flow thur the heater core. after fixing that and adding the fluid to the max i have not had any other problems with it.... hope this helps you.... try the knob first.....

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.

My Central heating wont come on. There doesnt seem to be any lights on the boiler/burner. Why could this be. First time I've tried to turn it on this season...it was fine back in february. Thanks!


Is the switch off?

Check the fuse panel/breaker box.

Is the thermostat switch set to heat?

Is system oil heat? If so check the following...

Some systems that use oil have an emergency switch (sometimes with a red plate) located away from the unit usually the basement staircase.

The oil systems also have a heat element above the burner on ceiling that "trips" if there is excessive heat. This shuts everything down so as not to feed a possible fire with oil.

Check the gun (burner itself) and try and locate a little red reset switch located near the back side of gun. Try pushing it in to see if its tripped.

If these quick checks don't help then it would be wise to call a technician to check your system for issues. Heating systems are too critical to "play" with and problems are best left to the pros for safety's sake. Good luck, I hope this helps.

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.

Central heat unit not blowing


Is your unit a Split system where one unit is inside (attic, garage, utility room) and another outside?? Is the outside unit unit running?? Is your thermostat electronic or the regular slide mechanical type??
