Customer Question
I have a 3107...

I have a 3107 heater that is leaking oil. Is there something I can do to fix it? Thanks, Bill

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It started leaking 6 months ago. I am just now wanting to use it and I don’t want to fire it up with this leak.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I was hoping to.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, not really. Is this something that is repairable?

Hi,
If it is leaking... you need to throw it out...they are factory sealed and the oil is not refillable or replaceable..
