How to check Lining in an oil furnace combustion chamber?
How do you check the lining in an oil furnace combustion chamber?
Depending on the set up.... well simply unscrew all the bolts surrounding the burner itself(obviously depending on set up) you do not need to take the burner out if you are careful. remove this plate in my case it is cast iron and secured by five bolts. After removing it you will notice what looks very much like foam. this is incredibly fragile if you notice parts that are uncovered by this material or cracks you need to replace the lining. The combustion chamber is the lower chamber where the burner is inserted. If this helps...well great.

Motor vehicle pinking uphill Why?
a engine will ping when the gasoline fires premature in the combustion chamber due to poor quality gas or excessive loads, (towing, hauling loads) or engine overheating causing excessive combustion tempatures. also check the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system for proper function, it is designed to lower combustion chamber temps and may be the cause.
Fixing Your Furnace?
When the furnace in your home goes out, there are a few things that you need to look at before you get a new furnace. Get the furnace serviced by a professional electrician who will check the heating coils as well as the filter in the furnace. Check the circuit breakers in the furnace to ensure that they are working properly. If the breaker is not making contact, this could be all that you need to replace.

What causes Blue smoke from diesel engine?
Blue smoke in both petrol and diesel engines is caused by the burning of engine oil during the combustion phase, i.e there is oil in the combustion chamber. The oil could be entering the combustion chamber via the valve stem seals or the oil rings. Also check that the oil level is correct as too much oil can cause blue smoke Also check that there are no oil leaks that are allowing oil to enter the exhaust system. If all that is in working order, I suggest you pull out the engine and get it overhauled. Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_causes_black_smoke_or_blue_smoke_in_gas_engines#ixzz1gRATAVIH

Why won't your Goodman heater model GMT090-3B start when the thermostate is turned up?
Check the error code on the control board at the furnace. It could be a number of things. If the furnace is not lighting, it could be the ignitor If the furnace lights then goes out right away, it could be the flame sensor If the furnace lights then goes out after several minutes, it is a limit switch. Turn the tstat fan switch to on and see if the fan comes on, if it does not you have no power to the furnace, check the breakers or cutoff switch.

What causes black smoke or blue smoke in gas engines?
Black smoke is caused by over-fuelling or excess fuel in the combustion chamber. It can also be caused by insufficient air during the combustion of the air/fuel mixture. Check your air filter, and check that none of the fuel injectors are leaking. If these are fine, the car needs a tune-up, preferably on a dyno. This applies t o a petrol engine. If its a diesel, black smoke is normal during acceleration. If the smoke is excessive, check the fuel injectors and pump timing. also check the fuel filters and water traps for blockages. Also check the operation of the EGR valve and clean it, making sure it seals properly. Blue smoke in both petrol and diesel engines is caused by the burning of engine oil during the combustion phase. The oil could be entering the combustion chamber via the valve stem seals or the oil rings. Also check that the oil level is correct as too much oil can cause blue smoke Also check that there are no oil leaks that are allowing oil to enter the exhaust system. If all that is in working order, I suggest you pull out the engine and get it overhauled.
