    Call a pro

    it's too easy to create a dangerous condition if you don't fix these things properly. Also, after fixing a burner it must be tested for proper combustion. Where are you located? Have you tried the Find a Professional page of this site?

    As Steamhead Said

    Call a professional. This is not a do-it-yourself operation and any small amount of advice given could mushroom rapidly into a dangerous condition, far worse than being uncomfortable.

    Just a hunch so forgive me if I am off on saying so, but if it is a matter of not being able to afford the work, call a pro anyway and explain the situation.

    There may be city or county or public utility agencies that can help. The good news is, it is not the dead of winter.

    Bottom line- do not attempt anything yourself unless you know exactly what you are doing.
