Clean filter on monitor plenty of fuel did not run. Disconnect fuel line from hub no fuel comming out after starting monitor. Temperature is 10 degrees monitor is okay. Changed filter on oil tank. Ran okay for 12 hrs. went to bed. 5:30 AM Temperature 0 degrees monitor out of fuel. Is this problem with flow of fuel or the monitor?

    Rolo, When you say the Monitor shows out of fuel, exactly what do you mean? What model stove is it that is giving you trouble and how long have you had it? Thanks, Tom

  • Thomas Hawkins May 11, 2010

    Rolo,

    Did you freeze to death or did you get the Monitor going? We are dying to know here.

    Have you checked pressure at heater to make sure it has pressure or it could be air locked.Not really sure what you are asking can you tell me a little more information on what is going on. does the rinnai try to light

  • Thomas Hawkins May 11, 2010

    Rolo,

    How did you determine the stove was "out of fuel"? The light bars flash anytime the stoves quits for any reason. We need more info.
    Try the stove and listen around the lower right side of the unit until the cycle is complete. If you hear a bumping noise just before it stops you have a fuel problem. NO bumping and a flame, you have other problems. Keep us posted

My heater will start, but the flames "surges" and eventually flames out. I haven't run it for 3+ years and left kerosene in the tank.


You may have a bad fuel pump or restricted oil filter or fuel line .also check the drive coupling isn't wore out

What to do if you run out of Fuel Oil - Beckett Oil Burner Problems


Running your furnace out of heating oil is not that uncommon. There are many different things that can go wrong to cause you to run out. If this happens to you do not panic, you can get your oil burner running rather quickly. You just need to know what to do.

You forgot to order more heating oil for your heater and now you have run it out of oil. The first thing you need to do is find a container that will hold at least five gallons of liquid. A container that is approved for flammable liquids is always the best.

Next, locate the closest gas station or convenience store that sells either regular diesel, off road diesel, or kerosene. Any one of these will work to get you going. Make sure that you never use any type of gas in your oil burner!


You will need to add at least five gallons to get the level of the liquid in the fuel tank over the oil intake pipe so that you can prime the pump. When you get the fuel poured into the tank you should wait at least ten minutes to let the fuel settle before you try to light the burner. Dumping the new fuel into the tank with very little liquid in there will stir up the sludge in the bottom of the tank. If you try to pull oil into the burner while the sludge is suspended you will then create more problems.

When you have the fuel in the tank you can begin to start the burner. If you have a TigerLoop installed in your fuel line then just by pushing the reset button you can purge the air. With a couple of clicks of the reset button you will be heating again. If you do not have a TigerLoop but the burner pump has a two pipe system the oil pump will usually purge the air, but it may take a few resets to get it going. If you have only a single pipe system, then look for my tip on bleeding your pump.

Running your oil burner out of oil will sometimes happen. You can fix the problem if you know what you need to do. Usually this always happens on the coldest night of the year or on that holiday weekend when a service call to the heating oil company will cost you an arm and a leg just to get you warm again. Now you can get your family warm till you can get the tank your oil tank filled at a reasonable cost.

Beckett Oil Burner Problems What to do if you run Out of Fuel Oil


Running out of heating oil is not all that uncommon. There are many things that can go wrong causing you to run out. When this happens do not panic, you can get your oil burner up and running rather quickly if you know what to do

You forgot to get more heating oil for your furnace and now you have run it out of oil. The first thing you need is a container that will hold at least five gallons of liquid. A container approved for flammable liquids is always the best. I really would not want you to use that camping water jug. It will ruin it for any future water use.

Now locate the closest place that sells either regular diesel, off road diesel, or kerosene.
Any of these will work to get you going. Never use any type of gas in your oil burner!
You will need at least five gallons to get the level of the liquid in the tank over the intake pipe so that you can prime the pump. Once you get the fuel into the tank you should wait for at least ten minutes to let the fuel settle back down before you try to light the burner.
Dumping the fuel into the tank with very little liquid in there will stir up all the sludge in the bottom of the tank and if you try to pull it into the burner while the sludge is suspended you will just create more problems.

Now that you have the fuel in the tank you can begin to try to start the burner. If your are fortunate enough to have a TigerLoop installed in your fuel line then just pushing the reset button will purge the air and with a couple of clicks of the button you will be heating again. If you do not have a TigerLoop the burner pump has a two pipe system the pump will usually purge the air eventually but it may take quite a few resets to get it going. If you have a single pipe system, then look for my article on bleeding your pump.

Running your oil burner out of oil happens and you can remedy the problem if you know what to do. Usually this will happen on the coldest night of the year or on a holiday weekend when a service call will cost you your firstborn to get you warm again. Now you can at least get warm till you can get the tank filled at a reasonable cost.

Rv furnace stopped working


Quick call the installer to see if it is still under warranty. There is something wrong if the motor is being replaced every other year. Most of the motors should be lubed with fan turbine oil and not 3 in 1, nor detergent containing oils. If the wrong oil is used, the bearings will go south in 1 to 2 years.

I have an oil fired aga the oil will not come throw to the burner


see the following steps:
f the burner doesn't run, set the thermostat a few degrees higher than normal to see if it comes on. If it still doesn't come on, check switches, and breakers and fuses (see the Electrical Service Panel Fix-It Guide). If the unit has a reset button, press it. Also oil the motor at any oil ports (see below). If the unit doesn't want to start and run, first check the c to make sure that the ignition is getting power. If there is power, check the built-in safety controls (see below) that may turn the system off if they perceive problems.
If the burner cycles too often, replace the filter (see below). Also, oil and adjust the blower (see the Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide).
If the burner runs but won't fire, make sure the oil valves are open and that there's oil in the tank. Check the tank level with a clean stick.
If the burner smokes or squeals, shut off the unit, let it cool, and fill the oil cups. Recheck them after the motor has run for an hour.
If the chimney smokes even after the flue has warmed up, the unit is wasting fuel; call for professional repair.
Safety Controls
Oil furnaces and other heat systems include safety devices that monitor operation and turn off the unit if something goes wrong. In some cases, the safety device can be the problem.
If you encounter an operating problem with an oil furnace, first reset the safety and try again.
If the burner kicks off again, shut off all power at the electrical service panel ; the burner motor and ignition may be protected by separate fuses or breakers.
If the sensor has a photocell, wipe it with a clean rag or tissue and see if the furnace starts.
If the safety is a stack switch mounted on the flue, remove the screw holding the unit to the stack, slide it out, and wipe off the sensor.
If the furnace won't start after three tries, seek professional assistance. Unburned oil can accumulate in the combustion chamber and "flash back."

My oil burner works fine while firing, but when it shuts off, there is fuel oil continuing to come from the nozzle. I get flames outside the combustion chamber when this happens, and I can find no...


The check valve is inside the nozzle. If you change your nozzle the problem will more than likely go away. Oil burners require annual routine mantainence to run properly. The part that bothers me is you said you are getting flames outside the combustion chamber. If the flame is outside the combustion chaber but still inside the furnace, you may very well have a broken heat exchanger which is very dangerous and could kill you with carbon-monoxide gas. I would suggest having this checked by a qualified HVAC contractor as soon as possible.

My Monitor 441 won't ignite. I hear ticking (pump running) and verified that the keorsene is going through the solenoid. There is no ignition and then it times out. Can you help?


When you say fuel is going through the solenoid, do you mean you removed the fuel line from the burner and fuel comes out the line when you try to start? If so, you have proved the fuel system from the tank, fuel sump and fuel pump is good. Now, does the igniter get hot? Feel around the lower area where two white wires go into the burner, it should get warm. Remove the window and clean it. You will have to replace the gaskets, as they may break. Stick a paper clip down the fuel nozzle about 3 inches to clear any carbon. Remove the flame sensor and clean it. Same thing with the gasket. Put all back together and try it again. If you see flame and the stove quits you have a problem with the burner.
If there is no flame, you have an iginter problem. This will be very clear when you remove the igniter.
When was the last time the stove was serviced? If it was more than two years ago you need a service.

Good luck,

Tom

Furnace will shut down acouple times a day . I hade it cleaned by a service tec 2 weeks ago that is when the problem started. a different tec came and said it was water in my tank or electrical. he said he...


You did not mention if you replaced the tank filter or pump strainer. If you have a filter at the tank, change it. All oil pumps have a plastic strainer that should be replaced each cleaning. Turn off the oil to the burner and remove the 6 screws on the end of the oil pump. Try not to rip the gasket but pull off the pump end . Put a pie plate under the pump. Inspect the round filter in the pump and replace it if you can't clean it. You could also be sucking up debris from your tank. If the tank is a top draw, lift up on the oil lines to get them away from the bottom of the tank. You could also have an air leak in the oil line. With a couple of adjustable wrenches, re-tighten each fitting on the oil line and at the oil pump.
