Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Elkhart

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button keeps tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and freezing in Elkhart, the Experts at BW/Cook Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can fix troubles with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are a couple of 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 too low. Check that it’s switched 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 free of blockages. Once you’ve checked those areas, only press the reset button once. Pressing it too many times could cause fuel oil to accumulate and cause 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 a problem 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 specialist service technicians. Call BW/Cook Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for oil furnace repair service when:

  • Pressing 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 works but does not fire
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
