Anyone want to look at an oil burner in Westport?
It got wet this morning, then ran and made heat after the water was dealt with,
Then power went out, it ran on generator until overloaded circuit tripped, after reset and now with street power back, there is a new audible whine to the burner operation.
It is making heat.
This is not for me, but for an acquaintance from work.
Acquaintance felt taken advantage of from last guy in home a while back.
I'll have them log in, or pass along contact info..
Anyone?

    Tell acquaintance from work to call in a competent professional. Usually if it got wet (underwater or water dripped on), probably means your replacing the burner motor, primary control and ignitor (for starters), and a full combustion test.
    So best left for a professional to evaluate and repair.
