Thermopride won't bleed

alexwc Member Posts: 1
I have tried several times to bleed my furnace that won't run. I get a steady slow drip of fuel, but little else. No grande gush of air, just steady clean fuel. Is there a way to draw fuel through the pump? Is there a way to cycle the pump manually? FYI it is a Webster pump

    Getting Bled:

    There is a way and it is easy. But, if the burner just went off and you are trying to bleed it because you think that that is the problem, you are probably wrong. There are too many variables for advice to be given. Other than maybe you should call a Pro.

    Unless you have changed the filter(s), changed the pump strainer and nozzle, you should get fuel out of the bleed port. If you have done the above, you may have a partially blocked fuel line. If it doesn't bleed by itself with the bleed port open, and the tank is full and well above the burner/pump, it should bleed itself when the port is open. If you haven't done the cleaning, call a pro.
