Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Salt Lake City

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you irritated and freezing in Salt Lake City, the Experts at Mountainwest Service Experts can help.

Sometimes, you can take care of issues with your oil-burning furnace by yourself. There are a few things you can take a look at before calling us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be too low. Check that it’s switched to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature turns off your furnace when it detects an issue. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is unobstructed. Once you’ve checked those things, only press the reset button once. Pressing it multiple times could cause fuel oil to accumulate and spark a fire once the furnace begins working.
  • Inadequate heat. The oil or air filters could be clogged and need to be cleaned or replaced.
  • Excess noise. If you hear clattering, tighten access panels. Squealing means there’s a problem with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a little bit of electric motor oil on them after completely turning off your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our specialist service technicians. Call Mountainwest Service Experts for oil furnace repair service when:

  • Pressing 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 signals there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be observed in the burner chamber
  • Burner works but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting tips don’t fix the problem
