Beckett AFG Stalls (7 Posts)
Beckett AFG StallsBoiler fires right up , but stalls within about one minute. It was turned 10 months ago, even the electrodes were changed. But to be on the safe side , I cleaned boiler, Changed filter, strainer and cad photo cell , Fuel lines were blown clean , fuel is bright pink. It fires up each time but won't remain on
If you had to clean it out after 10 monthsit wasn't set up properly to begin with, You need a pro to fix this, but not the one that was there last time. Try the Find a Contractor page of this site."Reducing our country's energy consumption, one system at a time"

Beckett AFG StallsActually it didn't need to be clean , since I was trouble shooting I figured I might as well vacuum it , there was no soot build up .It was the cleanest it's ever been. The nozzle , the strainer and filter were all in very good condition, none of them needed to be changed , I just thought if I was taken it a part I would changed everything that was easy to get too. I didn't want to make 4 trips to the store. Thanks for reading my post and replying to my situation

Stalls ?A car stalls. Not an oil burner. Are you having to push the reset every minute? or is the burner sputtering due to fuel supply issues (underground tank ? ) sounds like you need a good technician to troubleshoot , or we need more info to help you diagnose.
burner shutting downIf you have a 2-line system the problem is simple, you are losing prime. If that is a newer burner with the interrupted spark I would expect this to happen. I don't recommend either one. Need to go to single line or constant(intermiitent) spark.
stallsoil is bright pink ? sounds like h2o in oil.should be red ED N.Y.C.
