Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Kitchener

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button continuously tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you annoyed and freezing in Kitchener, the Experts at Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts can help.

Sometimes, you can repair issues with your oil-burning furnace on your own. 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. Check that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it detects an issue. 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 multiple times could cause fuel oil to accumulate and cause a fire once the furnace begins working.
  • 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 little bit of electric motor oil on them after shutting down your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our professional service technicians. Call Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts 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 seen in the burner chamber
  • Burner turns on but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
