oil burners


Postby stewart57 » Fri Dec 21, 2007 2:11 pm

Hi all, have a riello oil burner and recently serviced i.e. new nozzle,removed baffles and cleaned, checked oil press. 100p.s.i.
However, burner tends to be noisy and on occassions does not ignite fully and may go through this process several times before 'firing' properly. Any ideas ??

THIS COULD ONE OF A FEW THINGS, ELECTRODES MAY NEED REPOSITIONED, THE NEW NOZZLE MAY BE FAULTY, AIR FLAP MAY NEED ADJUSTED, AIR MAY BE GETTING DRAWN INTO THE OIL SUPPLY ETC. A SMOKE TEST AND A FLUE GAS ANALYSIS WILL PROBABLY DETERMINE THE PROBLEM BUT ANY WORK ON AN OIL FIRED BURNER SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT BY AN OFTEC REGISTERED ENGINEER
