Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Fort Wayne

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button continuously tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you annoyed and cold in Fort Wayne, the Experts at Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can fix troubles with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are several things you can try before contacting us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be incorrect. Ensure that it’s on “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature turns off 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 completely turning off your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our professional service technicians. Call Rolf Griffin 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 runs but does not fire
  • Other troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
