Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Grand Island

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you annoyed and cold in Grand Island, the Experts at McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can take care of issues 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 wrong. Make sure that it’s on “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it discovers trouble. 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 areas, only press the reset button once. Pressing it several times could cause fuel oil to accumulate and spark a fire once the furnace begins heating.
  • 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 an issue with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a few drops of electric motor oil on them after disconnecting your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our professional service technicians. Call McElroy 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 means 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
