Last night the house got cold, I hit the thermostat and it only mkae
clicking noises, the burner wouldn't fire up. (I hae a Weil-Mclain
Gold, Oil heat to hot water radiators - separate gas hot water
I go downstairs, and the red light is on. Don't know what that is,
but I hit the red button, it came to life with a blast of oil smoke
escaping from the chimney vent. This stopped after a couple of
minutes..the house heated up and the heat worked throughout the night
and this morning.
What happened? It seems like it was clogged up somewhere, the nozzle,
the burner itself? - but if it was clogged, did the blast of oil clear
I can call the oil co. to check it, but I will probably only need
ocasional heat for another 4 weeks...should I see if it keeps working,
or call it in and pay?
