Re: Mike with his manometer video setting draft speed

I do not work for Yukon. The Manometer has two ports where you can hook your flexible plastic tubing. If you hook to one port, your flue draft will pull air, so the oil in the manomater registers downward movement. So set the manometer at +0.3, and draw it down to 0.0, Hook the tubing to the other p...

Re: Eagle II burner fireing problem

We had a problem as well with the oil burner. It went on for a couple years. The red overload button kept popping out and I would have to reset. This was intermitent however, and I could go weeks without a problem. Then it would start again. One time, on X-mas eve, we returned to find house at 35 de...

Re: Thinking seriously about buying--AC Coil and wood burning

I have had an AC coil in my hot air plenum (Husky or now called Eagle) for 20 years. This past summer my plastic water drip pan cracked finally. Opened the plenum and sealed the leak with hot air tolerant sealer, and no more problems. Never trouble with the actual coils.

Re: Too warm to burn wood?

Thanks folks. We also have a woodstove like you do, but with work schedules, drive time etc., we are just too lazy to keep it going all the time.When we do use it, temps between 40 and low 50s, it keeps the place comfortable. It keeps a fire going, all night, like our Yukaon, but just seems to requi...

Too warm to burn wood?

OK you wood burners. I have a question for you all. At what outside temperatures do you start to burn wood in your furnace? For us here in Michigan, we usually do not burn wood until the temperature is going to stay below 40 degrees. Anything warmer than that, and our furnace smolders, and we get a ...

Yukon Oil Burner Question

A few weeks ago, I asked a question regarding replacing the combustion chamber. I was concerned that because of a leaky air conditioner in the warm air plenum, water may have caused my chamber to rust out. You responded needing some pictures. I have inspected it this week and everything seems fine. ...

Re: Replace the combustion chamber?

Thank you Keith, I will call when I am home from work during the day. As for what's gone, I am not sure. I replaced the secondary heat exchanger, going from steel to stainless a few years ago. My original became paper thin. I do not know if any other parts of the combustion chamber are also worn thr...

Replace the combustion chamber?

Hello, Any idea or help regarding when to replace the combustion chamber? We have a dual (wood/oil) Husky which was installed in 1990. We've burned in it since then when the temperature was below 40 degrees. We are in Michigan's thumb, so pretty normal winters. This past summer, the a/c water pan lo...
