Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Louisville

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button keeps tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you irritated and cold in Louisville, the Experts at Becht/Givens Service Experts can help.

Sometimes, you can fix problems with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are a couple of things you can check before getting in touch with us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be wrong. Make sure that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it spots 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 spark a fire once the furnace begins running.
  • 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 little bit of electric motor oil on them after disconnecting your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our Expert service technicians. Call Becht/Givens 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 seen in the burner chamber
  • Burner runs but does not fire
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
