Boiler heater blowing black soot when it fires


I have a new yorker boiler heater that blows black soot out of air damper when it fires.The black soot looks like pepper.The heater is only 1 year old.I fully cleaned it and I replaced the line filter. I even replaced the nozzle and it still blows soot.Can the heater be burning too rich ? Do I have to adjust the air going into heater? If so ,How do I adjust the air band.Please help!!!!!!!!!

That burner should be set up with a combustion analyzer by a knowledgable technician.

Setting it up without an annalyzer will make it use more oil.

Have a company come out and set it up.

If its blowing out soot, it already needs cleaned again.
