Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Saint Charles

Furnace won’t start? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you annoyed and freezing in Saint Charles, the Experts at Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can fix issues with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are a couple of things you can take a look at 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. Make sure that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it discovers 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 locations, only press the reset button once. Pressing it several 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 little bit of electric motor oil on them after disconnecting your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our professional service technicians. Call Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for oil furnace repair service when:

  • Using 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 turns on but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
