@ February 11, 2013 8:54 PM in furnace lockout

Where do you live?? If your w/in 100 miles from me I'd be glad to come down and get you set up correctly................
You shouldn't be having all this problems w/ a Beckett....
Have you ever had a pump pressure test?
Have you ever had your transformer tested?
Have you ever had your electrodes adjusted?
Have you ever had the coupling replaced?


check your motor

@ February 9, 2013 7:57 PM in furnace lockout

Can you hear any kind of a "humming noise coming from your motor?

love my p/pull pump

@ February 3, 2013 5:23 PM in no touch oil nozzle

I use it to help pull oil from a tank to the pump OR it to push/flush out clogged oil lines............
Now as for filter 99% of my customer base all have either Generals or B-4's and a slight few have the RC 20's........very few have Garbers!
 Now in own tanks I use a general, then three Garber's filters in the same line leading to the burner...I know it's over kill BUT I don't always use clean oil...Many times, actually always, I use oil from tank pump outs when customers are switching from oil fired to gas boilers, and all they want is that "dreaded oil tank" removed.......... I got the best of  BOTH worlds, I get free oil, paid to remove tank,  and install a new gas boiler..............

Hmmmm good idea

@ February 3, 2013 6:59 AM in no touch oil nozzle

I like your idea! I have not had too many blocked out oil lines in a while...I did have just last night, a bad oil pump, that I had to replace....I used my push/pull pump again to pull oil to the pump, but it still wouldn't work so I had to replace the actual pump...


interesting post

@ January 29, 2013 7:16 AM in Thermostat Question

Yes, please keep us posted, this post was interesting to me. As I have had the same question from time to time...
Thank you

nozzle line

@ January 29, 2013 7:09 AM in no touch oil nozzle

NO NEVER use a co2 gun, way too can blow an oil line under the concrete, If I have to blow out a clogged oil line I always use my trusty push/pull pump.... disconnect the line from the oil filer side and also the pump side, connect your push pump and always blow towards the tank.........
BUT what I was talking about, in my post is that after I replace the nozzle and tank  filter, I alway prime out all the dirty oil in the line, using the pumps 3/8" bleed valve, just placed a plastic tube on the bleeder, and pump into a small jug..NOW no more dirty oil in line...CLEAN nozzle, CLEAN oil...........

@ January 28, 2013 1:03 PM in Boiler issue

Are the bleeder valve(s) in the baseboard  up stairs??



@ January 28, 2013 1:00 PM in weil-mclain ,electronic igniton boiler, operating, house not reaching desired temperature,

Did you bleed out all the air in the baseboard(s)??
re-bleed again, if possible........


I never touch

@ January 28, 2013 12:47 PM in no touch oil nozzle

The screen part of a nozzle, I touch only the bass head,  maybe it's an ole wife's tale" BUT the less touching, to me the cleaner it stays.....I also ALWAYS flush out the oil line after replacing tank filter... I take no chance, of having that nozzle contaminated with anything!!

@ January 12, 2013 7:46 AM in Need help with uneven heating

 I have to applaud you in saying to flush out your LWCO at least once a week..Excellent commit I see 90% of folks have no idea about flushing out that black "thingy" on the side of the boiler..until it's toooo late.water all over floor...
I try to tell all my customers how to do it....
