What to do if you run out of Fuel Oil - Beckett Oil Burner Problems


Running your furnace out of heating oil is not that uncommon. There are many different things that can go wrong to cause you to run out. If this happens to you do not panic, you can get your oil burner running rather quickly. You just need to know what to do.

You forgot to order more heating oil for your heater and now you have run it out of oil. The first thing you need to do is find a container that will hold at least five gallons of liquid. A container that is approved for flammable liquids is always the best.

Next, locate the closest gas station or convenience store that sells either regular diesel, off road diesel, or kerosene. Any one of these will work to get you going. Make sure that you never use any type of gas in your oil burner!


You will need to add at least five gallons to get the level of the liquid in the fuel tank over the oil intake pipe so that you can prime the pump. When you get the fuel poured into the tank you should wait at least ten minutes to let the fuel settle before you try to light the burner. Dumping the new fuel into the tank with very little liquid in there will stir up the sludge in the bottom of the tank. If you try to pull oil into the burner while the sludge is suspended you will then create more problems.

When you have the fuel in the tank you can begin to start the burner. If you have a TigerLoop installed in your fuel line then just by pushing the reset button you can purge the air. With a couple of clicks of the reset button you will be heating again. If you do not have a TigerLoop but the burner pump has a two pipe system the oil pump will usually purge the air, but it may take a few resets to get it going. If you have only a single pipe system, then look for my tip on bleeding your pump.

Running your oil burner out of oil will sometimes happen. You can fix the problem if you know what you need to do. Usually this always happens on the coldest night of the year or on that holiday weekend when a service call to the heating oil company will cost you an arm and a leg just to get you warm again. Now you can get your family warm till you can get the tank your oil tank filled at a reasonable cost.

Beckett Oil Burner Problems What to do if you run Out of Fuel Oil


Running out of heating oil is not all that uncommon. There are many things that can go wrong causing you to run out. When this happens do not panic, you can get your oil burner up and running rather quickly if you know what to do

You forgot to get more heating oil for your furnace and now you have run it out of oil. The first thing you need is a container that will hold at least five gallons of liquid. A container approved for flammable liquids is always the best. I really would not want you to use that camping water jug. It will ruin it for any future water use.

Now locate the closest place that sells either regular diesel, off road diesel, or kerosene.
Any of these will work to get you going. Never use any type of gas in your oil burner!
You will need at least five gallons to get the level of the liquid in the tank over the intake pipe so that you can prime the pump. Once you get the fuel into the tank you should wait for at least ten minutes to let the fuel settle back down before you try to light the burner.
Dumping the fuel into the tank with very little liquid in there will stir up all the sludge in the bottom of the tank and if you try to pull it into the burner while the sludge is suspended you will just create more problems.

Now that you have the fuel in the tank you can begin to try to start the burner. If your are fortunate enough to have a TigerLoop installed in your fuel line then just pushing the reset button will purge the air and with a couple of clicks of the button you will be heating again. If you do not have a TigerLoop the burner pump has a two pipe system the pump will usually purge the air eventually but it may take quite a few resets to get it going. If you have a single pipe system, then look for my article on bleeding your pump.

Running your oil burner out of oil happens and you can remedy the problem if you know what to do. Usually this will happen on the coldest night of the year or on a holiday weekend when a service call will cost you your firstborn to get you warm again. Now you can at least get warm till you can get the tank filled at a reasonable cost.

3 year old Beckett AFG with Clean-Cut system. New inline filter new strainer, new nozzle, flame looks correct in pattern always. Flame does not sputter prior to shut-off. I did notice that when it shut off...


Called Beckett at 1-800-OIL-BURN and explained the problem. They told me that the solenoid on the oil pump (Clean Cut) was the cause. I purchased a new pump for $50 at the local plumbing supply and installed it. Problem solved.

Beckett home oil burner


problem is pump-must replace- there is a valve inside unit that holds pressure to about 150psi -it is leaking by when unit shuts down- causing problem. If left unrepaired you could blow chimeny connection with bad ignition. good luck
