Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Fort Wayne

Furnace won’t start? Reset button continuously tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and cold in Fort Wayne, the Experts at Rolf Griffin Service Experts can help.

Sometimes, you can repair troubles with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are several 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 wrong. Ensure that it’s on “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature shuts down your furnace when it spots trouble. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is clear. Once you’ve checked those areas, only press the reset button once. Pressing it too many times could cause fuel oil to become concentrated and cause a fire once the furnace begins heating.
  • Inadequate heat. The oil or air filters could be full and need to be cleaned or replaced.
  • Excess noise. If you hear clattering, tighten access panels. Squealing means there’s problems with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a couple of electric motor oil on them after shutting down your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our Expert service technicians. Call Rolf Griffin Service Experts 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 means there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be seen in the burner chamber
  • Burner runs but does not fire
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
