Magic Chef oil furnace, need owners' manual

:helpme 2:

Does anyone know where we can get a replacement manual for a Magic Chef Oil Furnace Model number L6284D3. This model says on the front panel, "Armstrong by Magic Chef". My husband knows it was installed in his house by prior owners in 1981.

We Heard a big boom in the garage. The damper door blew off of the pipe, so, we have been without heat for a while. Since the big boom we cannot get the furnace to light.

WE live in the Seattle area and I'm tired of being cold. Our house was built in 1942 with concrete blocks.

Can anyone help?

Armstrong

It's not going to be easy trying to find a manual for a furnace that old.

The "big boom" was likely late ignition. There are numerous causes for such but the most common are: Weak ignition transformer, dirty fuel system, & worn or misadjusted electrodes. Do you know the brand of burner on the furnace?

New furnace

I would suggest that you consider replacing that old unit with a more efficient furnace.

I have used Williamson oil fired furnaces with much success. Lifetime heat exchanger gaurantee. It comes with a High Efficiency Beckett oil burner.

It will probably cut your fuel consumption by at least 10% or more.
Get it cleaned every year and it will be faithful to you.
