FUEL OIL FURNACE

Question

Cooter

I'm not smart enough to read the guage on my fuel oil tank and ran out blush.gif I've heard rumors that its not as simple as filling her up and crankin up the heat. Re-lighting the pilot and priming the furnace are all horrible rumors I've heard. So can anyone help and tell me not only what needs to be done but if I can do it myself or need to make a service call. Thanks for helping the helpless.

Well I called for a refill and the gal asked if I needed the driver to "light the furnace". So if all thats involved is lighting the pilot I should be OK - she didn't mention anything else.

Fuel oil furnaces are electric ignition. You may need to get the air out of the fuel line. Bleeders are on the filter and the pump.

Most likely if you ran it out completely you'll have to bleed the air out of the system. There is a bleeder on the pump and filter to assist with this. You may want to consider replacing the filter element while its empty too.

Just replace it ,, don't even consider it... too many people neglect changing their filter on fuel oil furnaces.. When was the last time you had the furnace cleaned?

      Mike89 is spot on. Explore that river. Walleyes and cats can be had.

      lots of river fishing, try where the Minnesota and Blue Earth come together.  go to the park down there and enjoy!!!

      Shore fishing can be limited. Personally I would go to the fish hatchery on Lake Tetonka. There is a spot there that produces pretty well at times.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.
