Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Birmingham

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and freezing in Birmingham, the Experts at Norrell Service Experts can help.

Sometimes, you can take care of problems with your oil-burning furnace on your own. There are a couple of things you can take a look at 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 turns off your furnace when it spots an issue. 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 several times could cause fuel oil to accumulate and start a fire once the furnace begins working.
  • 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 problems 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 professional service technicians. Call Norrell Service Experts 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 found in the burner chamber
  • Burner turns on but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
