I need a picture of the fuel pump on the side of the burner (where the oil line connects). You can post a picture here by clicking on ADD Files next to the SEND button
Can you back out and give me a wider shot showing the whole burner?
Great, the last shot is what I needed. Disconnect the flared nut where that tubing connects to the side of the burner. Then bend the tubing so you can direct the oil flow into a container. Then turn the burner on (hit the reset button) and let it run until you get no more air/bubbles. Once the air stops turn the burner off (if it hasn't locked out already) then reconnect the line and turn the burner back on (hit reset again)
You're welcome. The switch is best to turn it off if you have to.
Be careful to not kink the tubing when you bend it. It's not likely but a possibility
I'd appreciate a favorable rating
You turn it counterclockwise as you face the side of the burner. It shouldn't be that difficult to get off. WD40 won't help, it's not corroded.
Well given the age of this burner I'd say a clogged line is a high probability given that you ran out of oil. Probably clogged at the tank. Turn off the valve at the tank then disconnect the line at the filter outlet then turn the valve back on and see if you have any flow
If the line is clogged it will have to be blown out. If you have an air compressor you could give it a go but if you don't even have the right wrench to disconnect the line I doubt you'll be able to adapt your compressor to the oil line. You probably need to call a pro
