How to prime an oil burner after running out of oil.
- Locate where your bleed port is, look at the photos. They are the most common pumps in our service area
- OK ready, open the bleeding screw one complete turn (counter clockwise>to the left)
- Put your bottle/can/pan under bleed screw hole to catch the oil that will come out of hole
A. Press the reset button and hold in, count to 5, release button, burner will start > oil comes out hole > may be foamy > keep going
B. By now it should be coming out better, but burner will shut off, wait 5 minutes & push reset again, wait until the oil is coming out strong
C. Close screw (clockwise > to the right) until tight > not superman tight, just tight enough so it doesn't leak
D. After 5 minutes press reset button, count to 5, release, burner should start and fire > may smoke a little > should clear after a few minutes
Now if burner doesn't stay running repeat steps A - D again, if after the second time it doesn't stay running you need to call us.
