SOURCE: flame sputters

Hey welcome to the world of oil burner service!! :-) Theyare a finnicky beast to say the least. The problem you are having sounds like an air mixture problem. A combustion analyser would be the best tool to have but being that you probably don't have that try this. On the left side of the burner as you are looking at it is an air adjust ment ring and a fine tuning ring. the fine tuning ring is probably all you need to adjust. There is a screw that is usually right behind or near the pipe coming out of the pump and going into the burner. Loosen that and turn the ring away from you just a bit to close off some of the air and you will be fine. The burner is running a bit to lean. If you can see the flame turn the adjustment closed just until the flame color turns from a almost white color to a slightly orange color. Then you should be fine. Good luck!!

SOURCE: Can the burner inlet air be adjusted on a coleman

Sure can. To do it properly, you should perform a smoke test after each adjustment. This requires a special tool. This may be why noone has answered your question yet. There is a band on the left side of the burner that can be opened to allow more air in. The flame should be bright orange/yellow. And again, perform a smoke test after you adjust it.

SOURCE: dripping fuel from the bottom of the burner

Hi,
No, you should call a person that can service oil burners. Either the nozzle is bad and oil is dripping into the burner tube and running down or the nozzle is loose and the oil is running out from the threads of the nozzle. Either way the nozzle should be changed and the burner retuned with a combustion analyser..

SOURCE: i think the fuel pump on my beckett burner is

As you face the burner, mounted in the unit, the oil line feed in on the left side. There is a cap, held on by 4 7/16" bolts. Inder the cap, there is a screen. You would be best to get a screen kit, available from the same place you get your nozzle, as it will come with a new gasket.

Shut off the oil. Remove the four bolts, pull the old screen, clean the housing (I use rags and WD40) and re-asssemble. If is is really bad, you should remove the nozzle assembley and flush the oil line to the nozzle, as well.

THe oil filter, screen and nozzle should be replaced at least once a year.

How do you reset the type control/restart an older Beckett burner after oil ran out? Oil has been added and the lines bled. However the burner will not stay on after hitting reset


First,mop up the unspent oil in the combustion chamber from any previous relight tries. Now, make sure the cad cell lense is clear. Did you change your oil filter and nozzle? These become easily clogged by the sludge at the bottom of your tank when you run out of oil.

Beckett burner starts and ignites but flame goes out slowly then get a lot of smoke why is this happening


It sounds like your filter is clogged. In the line from the oil tank to the burner there should be an in line filter. It is usually canister shaped and has a felt filter element inside. Shut valve off at the tank and loosen bolt on the top of the canister to remove bottom section of canister and access filter replace filter ( most hardware stores carry them) and reassemble canister. There is a small screw on top of the canister. Remove this to let air out when you open valve to let oil fill canister. When oil comes out shut off valve and reinstall screw. Reopen valve again and you should be ready for burner test. Setting a pan under the filter canister is a good idea to catch any oil from disassembling filter. Hope this Helps.

My oil burner works fine while firing, but when it shuts off, there is fuel oil continuing to come from the nozzle. I get flames outside the combustion chamber when this happens, and I can find no...


The check valve is inside the nozzle. If you change your nozzle the problem will more than likely go away. Oil burners require annual routine mantainence to run properly. The part that bothers me is you said you are getting flames outside the combustion chamber. If the flame is outside the combustion chaber but still inside the furnace, you may very well have a broken heat exchanger which is very dangerous and could kill you with carbon-monoxide gas. I would suggest having this checked by a qualified HVAC contractor as soon as possible.

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.

Engine problems on a kx 250 2 stroke


On a 2 stroke bike cause of smoke is due to excess oil in the fuel oil mixture, incomplete combustion in the cylinder or the engine oil finding it way in through the piston rings into the firing chamber. Check the oil levels and clean the plugs, which must be black in color by now, so replace if possible and if engine oil is low, the change the piston rings. Also look up the carburetor jets/nozzles are clean and the engine gets the correct fuel/air mixture by adjusting both fuel and air jets(turns)...sodeep
