Miller Mobile Home Oil Furnace
 
I am having a problem with my furnace. It is an older Miller furnace in a mobile home. The furnace will run fine until it reaches the desired temp. After that, it will not kick back on unless I open it up and press the reset switch. Once I do that it will kick back on and run until it reaches the correct temp again. Do I need to clean my flame sensor, or does it sound like a bigger problem. If it is the flame sensor, is this something I can do or should I call in a repairman? How do I clean the flame sensor if it is something I can do on my own? Thanks for any help.

Hi jjalba9

What you are resetting is the igntion watch guard. Have the piece of equipment serviced, this needs to be done by a qualified oil furnace technician, you don't want just anybody doing this. There is a list of things that have to be done to oil furnaces on an annual basis, if this is not done it can and generally will cause lockout problems.

Good luck
Rusty
