1. Disconnect fuel lines, remove two fuel pump screws.
2. Remove motor and coupler by taking out 2 bolts. Remove motor wires, if needed, to place motor on the side as you are working on the pump
3. Clean pump mount from inside burner with a rag. Spray WD40 to loosen any accumulated rust or dirt and clean again.
4. Using a flat nail punch and a hammer gently knock the pump evenly on the mount to push it out from inside the burner. Repeat it, if needed.

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.

Well the whole burner unit should be able to be removed -No/Yes? Is it bolted on to the face of the boiler, OR does the boiler have the door that swings open, which would put the burner approx. 90 degrees to where it is now. Just need to remove oil feed and return lines and unplug the elec. socket on the burner..

I have an oil burner that is leaking. how can i determine if it is oil pump or something else?

Do you see oil or water? If oil then the pump seal is broken and you need oil Tec to change the pump.

I think the fuel pump on my beckett burner is clogged is there a way to clean it. Ive replaced the filters and get fuel to the burner but get no fuel up to the line feeding the nozzle

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.
