Question about Heating & Cooling
Called engineer who said it was a tank problem, he fitted a temporary pipe which is coming out of the top of the tank now not at the bottom. The pipe has a little round device before it goes through the wall to the boiler,this has a button on it. There is no oil coming through near the boiler when I tried to bleed it, I have also undone the small nut on the left hand side of the boiler to let any air out (engineers instructions over phone). There is oil coming out of the pipe OK before the small device mentioned earlier, but not a lot when it is put back on, is this right or is this the problem why the boiler won't start. Engineer can't get to us for a few days and l am reluctant to get him back it's costing me too much money, this is the third time he's been! Hoping someone can help me. many thanks.
This sound like you have water flow problem that restricted the pressure to that switch

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!!

yes he is right on that the postion off the coals have to be in the correct pstion to stop fire sooting and fumes coming from fire , if the coals are in postion you take them out and put them back the same as they came out , or there should be a picture of the coal lay out in the users book , or look on line for the make of fire , if the gas engneer cannot work this out then go to some one who can ,
this is basic gas fitting any gas fitter will know this if not walk away from them ,
hope this helps
