Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Gaithersburg

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and cold in Gaithersburg, the Experts at Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can repair troubles with your oil-burning furnace on your own. There are a few 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 too low. Make sure that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it detects trouble. 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 several 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 congested 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 little bit of electric motor oil on them after shutting down your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our specialist service technicians. Call Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 indicates there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be found in the burner chamber
  • Burner works but does not fire
  • Other troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
