: Dickinson diesel
Atlantic model (30+ years old). Has been working like a charm since last year. Now I can't keep the fire going.
1) It's very windy, but I'm using the combustion fan and have a hatch
2) Usually burn it on fuel
level 1 (low) and the literature says that can cause
excessive soot build up.
3) After lighting
and turning on fuel
feed the fire quickly goes out and there is no
puddle of fuel in the bottom of the burner so I'm assuming my problem is
fuel supply. I checked my gravity fed day tank and it has 20 gals.
Question: I "assumed" (I know) soot buildup would affect draft
, but does it also affect fuel supply? I've never trouble"shot" this type of thing before.
I'm on my own for the next couple of weeks and of course it breaks on a weekend. I'll call Dickinson
on Monday but any ideas pop into your collective minds? Thanks.
