Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Kansas City

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button keeps tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you annoyed and freezing in Kansas City, the Experts at Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing can help.

Sometimes, you can take care of troubles with your oil-burning furnace by yourself. There are several things you can check before contacting us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be incorrect. Ensure that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature shuts down your furnace when it spots an issue. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is clear. Once you’ve checked those locations, only press the reset button once. Pressing it too many times could cause fuel oil to build up 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 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 specialist service technicians. Call Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing 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 observed in the burner chamber
  • Burner works but does not fire
  • Other troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
