Question about Water Heaters
I have a beckett oil burner. when i turn the thermostat up the burner comes on and makes a humming noise for a while; then it stops. any ideas as to what this is.
The beat i can do on this is an educated guess , it would be the pump or the pump motor bearings , but having said that i have also seen these make noise for years and not go out ,I have worked on oil burner about 35 years experience has taught me not to guess parts , so the advise i would give is to find the part and model numbers for the motor on the pump assembly and the pump try to find availability in your area , heating and cooling, hardware store ECT. and wait to see if becomes more defined or fails so you don't spend a fortune on parts you don't need ,**** make sure there are no oil ports on the pump motor bearings 9LITTLE OIL CAPS ECT OR PLASTIC PLUGS YOU CAN REMOVE TO OIL ) IF THERE IS PUT A COUPLE DROPS OF 3 IN 1 OIL AND SEE IF IT HELPS .
