But due to some or any other
reason, the boiler gets stuck with a fault. One of them is how to bleed a grant
vortex oil boiler.
you run your oil boiler and it gets out of the fuel than you need to bleed the
boiler. However you should be careful about this process. As when this happens
the oil burner control detects the flame out and goes out on the reset after
the set timings. There is a component named seldom, a burner pump re-prime and
runs without bleeding the air out, whenever it runs out of the fuel.
bleeding the air is not a heavy task, you can do this on your own as well but
just be careful about the fuel as do not allow much of the fuel to pumped in
the firebox without the burner lighting. This as a result can cause severe
damage when the oil burner gets lighten up.
just need to follow the simple steps very carefully
- To bleed the air, before the start of
the process you need a wrench, tubing to slip over the bleeder and a catcher to
catch the oil.
- You can use brake bleeder wrench. They
come with two ends sized differently. Also there ends are the box ends wrench
that right size will work well.
- Now you can take clear tubing which can
be pushed over the bleeder and remember it should be long enough to reach the
container that will catch the mixture of the fuel and the air that you are
going to bleed.
- Now for a container, you require
something which doesn’t matter or reacts when fuel oil is put into it, for this
you can use any plastic bottle.
- Also gets an aluminum tray or a plate
which should be kept under the area to prevent the spills on the floor as the reaction
going to spills stinks.
- Now you need to find the bleeder screw
on the oil pump section and put the wrench on it.
- Make the positioning in the way you are
convenient to operate. You just need to turn the wrench to open the close
- Place the wrench and check it
- Now push the tube over the bleeder and
into the correct place.
- Put the other end into the plastic
bottle. Now you can bleed the air out.
- Now locate the reset button on the oil
burner control and press it
- Open the bleeder screw and let the
mixture of oil and air run into the plastic bottle.
- Just keep a notice, when the fuel
running out of the tube loses the milky color, this means the air has been bled
- Close the bleeder valve and the burner
- However, if the burner goes out on reset
before all the air is bled out, immediately close the bleeder as soon as you
can and now repeat the bleeding process until the air is gone.
these steps will surely let you know how to bleed a grant vortex oil boiler or
how to bleed an oil boiler. Just remember do all these things with precaution
and safety measures. Else you can contact the engineer.
