Heatslave 18/25, The lock out light is on as the oil ran…

Customer Question
Heatslave 18/25 Contractor's Assistant:...

Heatslave 18/25

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

The lock out light is on as the oil ran out. We now have oil but there is an air bubble in the pipe. I need to suck the oil through but can't figure out which part on the front of the boiler to pull it through

Follow the copper pipe, it will end in a valve and a flex normally.

If you turn off the valve and disconnect the far end of the flex you should be able to bleed it into a tub if you are gravity fed.

If it is not like this then can you upload a picture?
