Most likely air in the lines. you'll ahve to bleed off the air to make full of fluid then it should restart. Look around the pump area for a bleed valve and keep a rag handy to wipe any splatter or spill. Your pump may also have a hand pump actuator to pull in fuel but it may require priming in either kind of application.

You may be able to get some tips and help from the people you bought the fuel from.

My advise is if you cant see or understand this or any advise they give you its time to be safe and call out a qualified repairman and watch what he does.

Questions about a dual energy heating furnace

If you have a heat pump the electric heat is the emergency heat. Short explanation of a heat pump is it switches the jobs of the indoor and outdoor coils. So instead of taking heat from inside and moving it outside it works backwards picking up heat from outside and moving it indoors. Probably an electrical problem. 7_7_2014_5_33_51_pm.png

Lampoil Ultra-Pure

It will burn but it is way too expensive. Clear K1 Kero from a "locked" pump is what I would recommend, performance vs price. 2nd is the 5 gallon cans of K1 Kero in Big Box stores. 3rd. is Kleen Heat, Kerosene alternative.

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.

Furnace wont run after running

There are a few posibilities:
1) the oilfilter needs cleaning
2) your pressure reduction bore needs to be changed
3) there is still some air left in the oil-tubes coming from the tank and leads to your burner
The best solution is to call a technician, he'll fix the problem in no time and while he is at it, perhaps he could perform a maintenance

We have an internal kerosene boiler. How do I get rid of smells

Good luck with that. There are fuel additives that you can use ... some will reduce the smell a little. Make sure your heaters are properly adjusted and absolutely clean. I have been around kero for many years, my parents cooked with kero in the 40's. You may want to consider another kind of auxiliary heat. Natual gas is of course the best followed by electric and propane then fuel oil depending on what options are actually available to you.

Furnace ran out of oil,got oil for the furnace,started furnace ran for 10 secends then switched off

On the oil pump there should be a bleed screw. Attach a tube to it and the other end to a can and 3/8" wrench, restart burner by depressing red button on Honeywell control and open up bleed screw. Oil will start flowing into can. When full stream of oil coming out of hose, tighten bleed screw. You have less than a minute to do this or the Honeywell control will shut off burner for a minute. It may take more than one try.
