Depending on the type you have some have bleeders on top others you just leave loose on open valve until some spills out. you must bleed out the air

How do I change the filter that my thermostat is telling me needs replacing?

Your air conditioner uses the furnace blower to circulate air. The filter to be changed is the one in the furnace.

Aga wont relight after running out of oil, could the oil tank filter be blocked i would of thought if this was the case we would have difficulty restarting the oil powered boiler

It is possible that a little extra sludge could have collected in the filter and restricted oil flow but I think your problem is more likely air in the fuel line and pump. There is a bleeder valve on the bottom of the pump. The pump is located on the burner where the oil line is connected. Usually it takes a 3/8 inch box end wrench to turn it. Once you locate it, turn it counter clockwise to loosen it. Use a container to catch the fuel that comes out while you bleed it. Turn the burner on while you have the bleeder open and let it bleed until the burner lights or locks out. If it locks out reset it and do it again. If you don`t get any fuel you`ll know the filter is in fact plugged and will need changed and the bleeding process done after that. If the burner lights, close the bleeder and you are good.

Furnace ran out of oil,got oil for the furnace,started furnace ran for 10 secends then switched off

On the oil pump there should be a bleed screw. Attach a tube to it and the other end to a can and 3/8" wrench, restart burner by depressing red button on Honeywell control and open up bleed screw. Oil will start flowing into can. When full stream of oil coming out of hose, tighten bleed screw. You have less than a minute to do this or the Honeywell control will shut off burner for a minute. It may take more than one try.

I had the oil tank filled and the furnace stopped working, I primed the furnace and it still wont work, It seems like the furnace wants to start,but it keeps stalling out. Is it a problem with the ignition...

Just had the tank filled ... Im getting the idea you burn one or two tanks per year? I would suspect sediment was stirred up in the tank and your filter is not clogged. Do you have your burner professionally serviced each year or do you do the work? For me ... I get it serviced ... they adjust the spark ... put in a new nozzle ... new filter ... clean the burner ... fire box and stack and I never have a problem.

Back to your problem ... I think if you replace the filter ... you will be back in business.

Thanks for your interest in

Cleaning electronic air filter

What brand and model is the air cleaner?
Often you can find the mfg. website and download the .pdf file of the manuals.

The air cleaner will be located on the return air duct of the furnace and should have a nameplate and a model# somewhere.

Some use disposable filters and some need to be cleaned with dish detergent and can be very fragile. Hope this helps.

Ruud uprl-036jez is tripping on high head pressure. Indoor coil seems to be clean, filter is clean. ref charge is good. Indoor txv was replaced. Fan is on high speed. Hooked up to a 10yo olsen direct vent...

Check your TXV outside just like you do inside. Strap temperature sensor to outlet of TXV, disconnect the bulb.and let run 5 min, Get temperature reading, then put the bulb in your hand and watch the bulb open up. Next stick in a cup of ice water and watch close.

Check your 4 way valve for proper operation.

Do not hit accept unless you can give 100% good feed back.
If you need more help Please post back.
Let me know how it went.
