  2. Can anyone help with this problem?

    I have the following unit: MAKE: Burnham MODEL: Beckett
    SERIAL #: 951030-4502 MODEL: “AFG” Series Oil Burner
    BOILER #: 27112735 DOE HTG CAP MBG = 121
    Steam Square Feet: 379 Steam MBH = 91 Water MBH = 105

    I recently changed to a new local oil company. The new Tech performed an annual maintenance check-up late last year. This is not a new unit so it’s been serviced by other local techs. No problems were discovered but ever since his first maintenance check-up – the furnance has an additional muffled rumbling engine noise. Could the new Tech have altered something? The added sound is like truck engines driving by. No metal clanking just a louder but muffled engine sound. Instead of sounding like a quiet residential furnance – it sounds more like a commercial furnace with greater capacity. I’ve asked him to return several times to remove the engine rumbling sound but he has not been unable to detect a problem. ANY SUGGESTIONS? WILLIAM – HOMEOWNER
