changing a nozzle on a beckett afg


I tried to remove the burner nozzle but could not get it out.
it seems that i could unscrew everything but i am afraid something would fall into the burner.
never did this b4.
changed the filter, but thats all so far.
help?
is this something that ONLY a professional should do?

Did you pull the draw assembly out of the burner. or did you remove the burner from the furnace?

I loosened the line that goes into the burner.
It has a little plate that slides to adjust.
Its all loose but it like there is something inside that won't allow it to come out. I could completely unscrew it but that's when i'm afraid that whatever it is that is preventing it from coming out, will fall in.

You shouldn't loosen that slide plate. Not unless you have the guide to reset the draw assembly position.

You disconnect the 7/16" nut, and then turn off the spline nut.

Then depending on how short the blast tube is. You have to use some force to pull the flare end on the assembly into the burner. Then spin it 180 so the electrodes are turned downward, and then it comes out sometimes easy, sometimes not too easy.

Well i believe i put everthing back in place properly.
There were some marks left so i lined them up when i put it back together.
(that was actually before last season)

But thanks for your help.
Not sure if I'm gonna try it again.
I may call a pro.

Once i see how it is done i would certainly do it myself the next time.

Quiet often, it is easier to do something after you see it done once.
