New Oil Furnace Noise


I just had a new Miller furnace installed in my mobile home one month ago.
When it starts it starts with a Womp! then as it burns is sounds like it sputtering like--putt,putt,putt,putt,-until the heater shuts off.

I thought I read in the manual that this is normal but should even out as it burns but it does not even out.Something doesn't sound right to me.

Is there any danger in this?
Could this damage the inside?

The furnace does not put out any soot or any smoke or anything like that and it gives good heat.
Being in a mobile home it sounds like the furnace is going to go through the wall when it starts.

Any suggestions?

This can be VERY DANGEROUS!!! The burner is not setup properly. You are getting delayed ignition and it sounds like the fuel too air mixture is wrong. Get it checked ASAP and yes the pulsating can and may have damaged the combustion chamber.

Yep.

Call your installer back. And have him set it up properly, before you/or him has to buy a new mobile home.

yes oil systems can be very dangerous .I reccomend a heat and maintenace ckout everyyear before firing it up.change the filter and ck nozzles.this will save you money by burning cleaner.Delayed ignition isnt a good thing and as a little note.If the burner doesnt fire up PLEASE dont hit the reset button no more than 2 xs Everytime you do theres a predetermined amount of oil that will spray into the burner area and than when it fires up you have all that unburned fuel inside it that takes off as well BE SAFE!
