Just had the tank filled ... Im getting the idea you burn one or two tanks per year? I would suspect sediment was stirred up in the tank and your filter is not clogged. Do you have your burner professionally serviced each year or do you do the work? For me ... I get it serviced ... they adjust the spark ... put in a new nozzle ... new filter ... clean the burner ... fire box and stack and I never have a problem.

Back to your problem ... I think if you replace the filter ... you will be back in business.

Thanks for your interest in

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.

If oil pressure sending unit is bad will it stop fuel pump from working on a 2000 blazer

You should never try a pump without it being in fuel. It uses fuel for lubrication when it is running. If the vehicle doesn't start at all when you first crank it over it is not the oil pressure sender. If you just put the pump in you might want to turn the key off and on several times to cycle the pump then try to start it. If it doesn't start then check fuel filter or check fuel pressure at fuel rail in engine compartment. Is fuel pump cycling at all when the key is turned on? There is a problem with ignition switches on some of these blazers.

Hi well this is a little odd,however i have come across a similar thing like this before and what fixed it was the tank breather, it was blocked and after a while the tank developed a vacuum and gas wouldn't flow, so i wonder if this is the same or similar worth a try anyway? try loosening the top a little and see? If that works check the breather tube?
Otherwise, i think that it still must be a gas problem and would troubleshoot that area? maybe the float sticks?

Restart oil tank to get heat working

I think you're trying to restart your oil fired furnace - right? If you ran it out of fuel, your burner's built in oil pump probably lost the prime and is air bound. You need to prime the pump once again to get it going.

Check out this site or this site for instructions to prime your pump. Keep in mind, if you are not comfortable doing this work or using tools, you ought to have or pay someone that is - or better yet - knows exactly how to do it. Watch how they do it, ask questions, learn. That is money well spent.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Wont start, checked the fuse, cant seem to locate fuel filter.

Turn the key to the ON position without starting the car
You should hear the fuel pump running for 5 seconds to prime the fuel up to the engine so it can start. If no sound is coming from the fuel tank area which can be heard with the drivers door opened in a quite area the oil sending unit on the engine needs to be looked at. If its bad the fuel pump will not prime. If the oil sending unit is good the fuel pump is at fault instead
Oil pressure to your engine achieves to close the circuit to this switch which the computer senses. When the oil pressure is up to normal standards the PCM shuts that circuit off and turns on the fuel pump relay

Drain all the gas/oil mix out of the system. Press the red prime bulb several times until there is no fluid in the line. Pull the spark plug and clean it with a soft dry rag. Reassemble and fill tank with 2 cyl/gas mix. Prime it, then pull several times on the start cord. That should work.
