Ayuh,... You're saying you get fuel out of the bleed screw, but not at the fuel line to the burner,..??

Ya, that sounds like a pump problem to me...

Was there an actual flame when it ran and tripped the safety. if not. Stop pushing the reset.

Put the cad cell back it's a fuel problem. Now your not getting fuel to the burner, relax and think about it, your getting fuel out of the bleeder on the pump, is it a good solid stream? Or does it have air mixed with it?
You might have to attach a rubber hose to the bleeder and run it into a can to make sure it's a good solid stream before closing the bleeder and restarting. Listen to Been DO NOT KEEP PUSHING THE RED RESET IF YOUR NOT TO SURE WHAT'S HAPPENING. IF YOU DO SOMEONE UPSTAIRS CAN EXPLAIN IT TO YOU WHEN YOU GET THERE.

beckett oil burner pump problem


I was talking about 2 separate burners.1 of them is in the stable(the cad cell question) and the other burner is in the house(the question about the pump) I'll get a new cad for the stable burner. the house burner has a problem with the pump. There is a strong flow at the bleeder valve but nothing out of the backside of the pump.I disconnected the short fuel line that goes from the backside of the pump to the tube that has the nozzle on it. There is no oil coming out of the elbow attached to the back of the pump when the burner is turned on. Hope this clears this post up. any help with the pump question would be appreciated.

Ayuh,... Disconnect the fuel lines,...
There should be 2 or more bolts holding the pump to the housing,..
The pump is joined to the motor by a Love-joy coupler...

Not sure about this maybe someone else will chime in. Quite a few oil pumps have a cylindrical screen in them, you have to take the end of the pump apart usually 4 screws and remove the end plate inside there you will see a screen MAYBE , if you do pull it out and clean it.try not to muff up the gasket on it or it will be double trouble. If I am wrong you'll see me getting ripped here just keep looking before you do anything drastic.

If you follow the procedure above then re-bleed the pump in a bucket before firing boiler.

beckett oil burner pump problem


I have same problem as Slavco's post.

I have a Utica Starfire III with Beckett burner circa 2008.

Filter clean on inlet to burner, pump runs and good flow out of bleed...solid flow and fast, screen clean inside Cleancut pump, fan is confirmed spinning, good spark on ignitor. Disconnected outlet line from pump and no flow at all - bone dry out of the pump outlet port with line leaving outlet port disconnected.

Any idea on on this?
