    Thanks thejet,



    i tried it but still no action? Kerosine doesn't make it's way to the burner! Could there be an air lock? What can I do to get the oil running?

  • slokharold Feb 15, 2009

    thanks, I think problem was the distance between fuel tank and burner and the fact that tank is in same level as burner! It's working again, thanks for your advice!

On the lh side of the burner, there is the pump if you could look at it straight on there is 4mm allen screw at about the 2 o'clocl on the face of it, usinging a allen key loosen this then with the heating switched on, press the red reset button on the burner (round with red light) and the burner should run, where the screw is loosened you should see the oil bubble out, the run freely, the burner will fire, quickly tighten the screw back in. you may need to repeat to get it to work

a container under where your doing this will help

If you're using propane gas, the banging noise you hear is air in the gas line, which means either your tank is empty or the the tank regulator is frozen (if it's ,below freezing in your area). If the tank regulator is frozen, soak a bath towel in hot water and quickly place it around the regulator. It should thaw fairly quickly and the gas will start flowing again. However, you may need to purge the air out of the gas line to gas log burner. Rather than using the electronic ignitor, do it manually, until you smell gas, left off the control knob and wait 5 minutes and then try lighting the pilot electronically.

If you're using Natural Gas, it may still be a pressure problem to the burner. You'll need to have that professionally checked.

Hope this helped to solve your problem.

Ran out of oil, now refilled, but boiler won't ignite. Tried all as owners manual instructs, but still keeps locking out - help please


After running out of fuel,you need to bleed the oil pump on your burner.There should be a 3/8 bleed port on the bottom of your burner pump. The bleeder valve looks like a nipple. A 3/8 opened end will fit over it.Put a can or cup under it,open it a bit and reset your control.when pure oil comes out close it and burner will fire.If your not good with it you should get a tech or handy man to do it.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. You will have to push and hold the reset in on the side of the control for 15 seconds. But you will also have to bleed the air from the system from the 3/8 nipple on the lower left side once the lockout has been released and the motor starts.

Ran out of oil, got some but it kept tripping out


If it is a 2 pipe system, The nozzle is fouled, everything you push the reset button, it is spraying fuel into the chamber, so be very careful.
If it is a 1 pipe system, then you will need to bleed the system, on the pump, near the inlet line is a short nipple, it has a square head on it, it's like bleeding the brakes on your car.

Fuel oil level extremely low: possible problems?


After your fuel tank is refilled let it set if possible for solids to settle. In the line near the tank is a fuel filter. This fuel filter should be changed regularly, normally annually. The air must be vented from the fuel filter though vent screws located on top of fuel filter. Do not remove the screws completely as air will vent as they are loosened. At the burner oil pump is a vent to which you can slip on a 1/4 inch hose and direct into a container. On burner start up loosen the vent at the oil pump and observe oil going into container. When solid stream of oil is seen close the vent. The vent looks like a grease fitting on an auto.

follow these instructions: One problem that can occur is the nozzle for the burner sometimes becomes plugged if solid particles make their way to it under low oil conditions. If this becomes the case you should have a heating service tech change the nozzle and fuel filter. However try the venting procedure first. You just may be O.K.

you could have a problem with a temperature sensor.
it would not be the flame sensor since it could not wait 6 mins to sense that there is flame in the unit.
could be a temperature sensor problem where it is sensing a temperature which could be correct but it is sending a wrong signal to the controller to turn off the flame and start another cycle.
