Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Wheeling

Furnace balking at starting? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and freezing in Wheeling, the Experts at Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can take care of issues with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are a few things you can try before getting in touch with us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be incorrect. Make sure that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it detects a problem. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is free of blockages. Once you’ve checked those locations, only press the reset button once. Pressing it multiple times could cause fuel oil to build up and spark a fire once the furnace begins working.
  • Inadequate heat. The oil or air filters could be congested and need to be cleaned or replaced.
  • Excess noise. If you hear clattering, tighten access panels. Squealing means there’s an issue with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a little bit of electric motor oil on them after disconnecting your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our professional service technicians. Call Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for oil furnace repair service when:

  • Using the reset button doesn’t start the furnace, even when there’s fuel in the tank and valves are open
  • You hear knocking sounds, which likely indicates there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be seen in the burner chamber
  • Burner turns on but does not fire
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
