    Also have a Honeywell R7184P on a Becket. Brand new install with sporadic problems. Shutting power at the on/off at the boiler is the only way to reset it. Good for a day or two, then happens again.

    it works. Great information I froze my off last night not knowing how to reset a f-----g blinking light. I\'m burning the goddam manual that came with unit. Says nothing except spend more money and call a licensed plumber. Screw them too. I spent 3 grand for the unit and all it can tell me is spend more. Simple is best and you gave it to me. Many Thanks

My Beckett oil burner with a honeywell R7184P just did the same thing. Quit burning, blinks for half a second. The burner says press reset once, if it does not reset then call a local serviceman. It is cold here in Alaska, you betcha', and my oil must have jelled up. It happened once, but pressing reset solved my problem, two days later it stopped again. I applied heat (hair dryer) to my supply line, added an anti-jelling solution to my tank. Here is what I found.

"The Honeywell R7184P-1080 (interrupted control—transformer shuts down 10 seconds after flame is established) is now the standard control used on all Beckett oil burners along with the new “Cleancut” pump. The Honeywell control has both a 15 second pre-purge and a 15 second post purge feature, as well as internal self-checking of the control itself. The control has 15 second lockout timing plus a 10 second ignition carry over period. After 3 lockouts during the same call for heat, the control goes into restricted lockout., A restricted lockout condition may be reset by holding the reset button down for 30 seconds until the LED flashes twice. At any time the control is powered, the reset button may be held for 30 seconds to reset the lockout counter. There are several new “Service Features” with the R7184P control that make for easier servicing."

You have to press the reset button for thirty seconds. I don't know how cold it it there, or what number oil you guys are burning, but what I do know is that you guys have been pressing your reset button more than once.

This worked for me. Good luck.

    Hi... I pressed the restart button numerous times, - the furnace won't even make a clicking sound, the green light is flashing. -- I don't know how many times I pressed the green button... I'm just seeing this now, about holding button down for 45-50 seconds. Will it be safe for me to try holding button down for 50 seconds, now???? Please help!

Hold the reset button down til you get a the light to blink once....may take 30 seconds or so .

second, make sure you purge all of the air out of the fuel line..(my problem the burner wouldnt start,how air got in the line i will never know)

once all air is purged ,burner should operate without problems

The fast blink is restricted or "hard" lockout, press and hold the reset button while watching the green LED, after about 40-50 seconds the green LED will come on momentarily; this will reset the control and allow the burner tol attempt a restart.

You should press and hold the reset button for 45-50 seconds, at that time it will blink for a second. That will actually reset te burner to factory default, then it will go into normal operation.

Remember it is important to replace the nozzle every year, it is the number one cause of lockouts. Also check the porcelin sleves around the electrodes, if they are broken/cracked you need to have electrod assembly replaced by a certified HVAC Tech. Also its very important to wear gloves when touching the porcelin part of the electrodes. Believe it or not the oil from your skin can cause them to have major defects and even ruin the part.

What is the best oil furnace on the market today 2011?


Your question is quite wide open to interpretation,Size, venting option, space availability,,,,But, if i think you wish to install this in a ,,lets say 1500 sqare feet home,, i would say a oil furnace made by olsen. Burns clean, effeciency depends on model, but sometime i would sacrifice a half % of efficiency for reliability, ease of maintnance,(not enough good ,reliable technicians in this field) quietness, odor free,parts availability, life span, ect ect.Stick with a canadian or north american made oil burner. I aint too fancy on the riello burners or even worse, a burner made for 50 different furnace model. I like the becket or aero burners. Choose a dc fan motor, direct dive if available. Stick with a chimney versus a direct or power vent.

My oil boiler keeps locking out


turn off the power to the system and then open up the transformer using a 5/16 nut driver. The transformer is hinged and it will flip out of the way. Look for a small black cylinder with yellow wires. Clean off the eye. Then turn off your oil supply to the burner. Using a 7/16 wrench, unscrew the very small copper line at the end where it enters into the burner housing, then spin off the round nut holding the drawer assembly. Rotate the drawer assembly and pull it out. Inspect the nozzle for soot and replace. The size and angle of spray will be marked on the side of it. Inspect and adjust your electrodes according to the manufactures specifications of the burner (not the boiler). Put everything back together and test fire it. If your boiler has not been cleaned in the last year, change the filter at the oil tank. If it continues to lock-out, change the primary control (usually honeywell 8184G) with a newer version.

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.

Our oil tank ran out of oil. We just had it


On the burner unit near where the inlet line enters the unit you will find a little bleeder screw It should require a small 1/4 or 5/16" wrench to open it DO NOT remove it just open it a full turn or 2
Fuel and air will come out of the top of this fitting Once no more air comes out close the bleeder, clean up any spilled fuel and restart the furnace
You may have to do this a couple of times to get all the air out of your lines

My honey well reset on my oil burner keeps shutting down my burner


have it professionally serviced by the most expensive guy in town. this seems crazy i know but, having an oil furnaced serviced by less than a pro is silly. you need a new nozzle, a new filter, and set position of ignitors,. be sure tank is ful , 8 inches or more. check to see if transformer draws a spark, 1.5 inches or longer. so many things can aflict an oil gun. good luck
