My heating oil tank was getting low, so I called for a delivery. The person I talked to said they would bring more on Monday. My plan was to to turn off the heater on the delivery day. Every time they deliver oil, sediment gets stirred up, my filter gets clogged, and the burner shuts off.
They delivered on Saturday. I didn’t have the heater turned off, so it shut down. Dang.
Yesterday I had arranged for a repair. There were two repairmen. After a short time in the basement, they came back up. They had replaced the filter screen and burner nozzle, but said that wasn’t the problem. What had really happened? I had run out of oil, and air got in the line.
I was sure I had a quarter tank left. The repair guy said I must’ve been looking at the top of the yellow thing on the gauge instead of looking at the bottom.
They were really nice and said there would be no charge. Nice!
