Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Livermore

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

Sometimes, you can take care of problems with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are a couple of things you can check 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 switched to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature shuts down your furnace when it detects trouble. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is unobstructed. Once you’ve checked those areas, only press the reset button once. Pressing it multiple times could cause fuel oil to accumulate and start 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 an issue 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 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 signals there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be observed in the burner chamber
  • Burner works but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting tips don’t fix the problem
