Sounds like it is not burning all the fuel . If you have the manual it should tell you how to adjust air flow so it will burn wright. You might need to clean the nozzle that the oil comes out of. The manual will have the cleaning steps to if you have manual. If not i can try an find one for you.

    It will take me a little while to find one. Can you email me some pictures of the heater. If you can get serial# and model# it might be a little easier to find manual. My email Is smagill73@yahoo.com

My oil burner blows smoke when it kicks on, then after 3 times it shuts down smoke test is good, new nozzle what else can i check?


There should be an air adjustment collar on the oil pump side of the burner. Give it a bit more air. Have you replaced the oil filter and oil pump strainer? Flip open the transformer on the top of the oil burner and look for a small black round cylinder. This is your Cad cell eye. Take a paper towel and polish the end that looks down the burner tube. You did not mention how long the unit fires prior to shutting down, could be a bad primary control.

Black smoke


Change your air filter and clean the blow by tube that crosses the heads and connects to the back side of the air filter. If the tube or the air filter is clogged, then the oil that the blow by removes is going back into the cylinders, causing the black smoke. Also keep in mind that a Harley will blow a little black smoke upon starting as it ages, it's normal.
