You have to press restart while bleeding and very quickly shut the valve before the furnace goes out again. I had to do this several times in order to get it done fast enough.

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.

Ran out of oil but oil is now filled ignitor comes on and flame lights but you can hear it having a hard time staying lit and after about 5 minutes the unit shuts off

With oil heaters when you run out of fuel you **** all of the nastiness from the bottom of the tank thru your fuel system. First I would change out the filter then using the bleeder valve on the pump crack it loose until you get straight fuel no air, you do this a little at a time do not open wide and let it fly as fuel is under pressure and will soak everything. Just crack it then shut it repeat until you get no air.

I changed the oil and need to reset the change oil light?

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do not

start the engine.

2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times

within 10 seconds.

3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.

NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you

start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary repeat this procedure.
Good luck on resetting the change oil light.

That was a new one for me and found the solution in the .pdf file
located on the owners section of the website for the 2009 Jeep Patriot.

How do i reset my boiler after having oil delivered, it ran out 2 days aggo just had 1000 litres delivered how do i getr the boiler up and running again????

While standing in front of the oil burner, on the left side you will see the fuel pump. On the bottom corner towards you, you will see a bleeder screw. If you put a cup or other vessel under this screw, loosen the screw, then hit the reset button it will start to push oil out the bleeder. Once the oil comes out a clear red liquid, close the bleeder screw and the unit should fire up. Hope this helps

Our oil tank ran out of oil. We just had it

On the burner unit near where the inlet line enters the unit you will find a little bleeder screw It should require a small 1/4 or 5/16" wrench to open it DO NOT remove it just open it a full turn or 2
Fuel and air will come out of the top of this fitting Once no more air comes out close the bleeder, clean up any spilled fuel and restart the furnace
You may have to do this a couple of times to get all the air out of your lines

I ran out of diesel on A4 1.9TDI B6 2003 avant refuelled and have been unable to restart. Fuel is getting to the filter and tandem pump

Have you tried removing the airlock. When you run out of oil and keep restarting the oil goes so low that air enters the fuel system and gets locked inside. there is a pump on the fuel pump. Unlatch it and pump till it becomes free. Then crank the engine and hear it purr.

The remote opener reset button goes off and will not work

The green button is not a reset it is the program button.

If you hold the button down for about 20 seconds it will erase all codes. Then, press and release the button - press and hold the button on your remote for about 10 seconds. the next time you press it it should activate the door. Repeat the 2nd step for all additional remotes.

The lock button on the wall control locks out all radio signals for vacations etc.

If the lock has been activated the green led in the wall control will flash - when the lock is deactivated the led stays solid green.

Hope this helps
