Question

Air leak on Beckett Burner


Hey all,

I have a Beckett AFII burner that is leaking air. The air seems to be coming from between the housing assembly and the igniter, where the wires run through. I have a picture:

The red box is where the leak appears to be (under the igniter), and the arrows is where the air is coming out. I assume there was a gasket between the igniter and housing assembly, but I'm not sure. The burner still apparently runs OK, and I don't smell any funny smells. However, I would also assume the air-to-fuel mixture isn't correct anymore... any suggestions? Getting a technician to come out is so expensive, especially when the burner still seems to work!

Thanks

I BELIEVE THERE WILL BE SOME AIR COMING OUT BUT SHOULD NOT BE EXTREME AIR FLOWING OUT.

Air leak on Beckett Burner


I ended up getting some of this:

... and I taped up the hole were the wires run through the housing assembly. No more air leak!

EDIT: Thanks Artco for the reply!
