How a Central Air Conditioning System Works
amn_howac.jpg


Facts:
  • The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit" and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.
  • Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.
  • Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby "cooling" the air.
  • The heat that has transferred to the coil is then "pumped" to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
  • Central air conditioning can also be provided through a package unit or a heat pump.

Benefits:
  • Indoor comfort during warm weather - Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.
  • Cleaner air - As your central air conditioning system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms.
  • Quieter operation - Because the compressor bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.

Riello oil burner runs for 2 seconds and then stops ??


1. Take off the red cover which is held on by a screw.

2. Use an allan key to loosen the screw facing you.

3. Turn on boiler. The boiler will draw the oil through and bubbles of air will escape through the screw you have loosened.

4. When it is just oil coming through the cracks around the screw, re-tighten the screw and turn on again.

My oil boiler keeps locking out


turn off the power to the system and then open up the transformer using a 5/16 nut driver. The transformer is hinged and it will flip out of the way. Look for a small black cylinder with yellow wires. Clean off the eye. Then turn off your oil supply to the burner. Using a 7/16 wrench, unscrew the very small copper line at the end where it enters into the burner housing, then spin off the round nut holding the drawer assembly. Rotate the drawer assembly and pull it out. Inspect the nozzle for soot and replace. The size and angle of spray will be marked on the side of it. Inspect and adjust your electrodes according to the manufactures specifications of the burner (not the boiler). Put everything back together and test fire it. If your boiler has not been cleaned in the last year, change the filter at the oil tank. If it continues to lock-out, change the primary control (usually honeywell 8184G) with a newer version.

you could have a problem with a temperature sensor.
it would not be the flame sensor since it could not wait 6 mins to sense that there is flame in the unit.
could be a temperature sensor problem where it is sensing a temperature which could be correct but it is sending a wrong signal to the controller to turn off the flame and start another cycle.

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.
