Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Buffalo

Furnace balking at starting? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you irritated and chilly in Buffalo, the Experts at Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can take care of troubles with your oil-burning furnace by yourself. There are several things you can take a look at before calling us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be too low. Check that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature shuts down your furnace when it detects a problem. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is unobstructed. Once you’ve checked those areas, only press the reset button once. Pressing it several times could cause fuel oil to become concentrated and start a fire once the furnace begins running.
  • Inadequate heat. The oil or air filters could be clogged and need to be cleaned or replaced.
  • Excess noise. If you hear clattering, tighten access panels. Squealing means there’s a problem with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a little bit of electric motor oil on them after completely turning off your furnace.

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

  • Pushing 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 signals there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be found in the burner chamber
  • Burner turns on but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting tips don’t fix the problem
