Furnace Blowing Black Smoke

Hey guys

My oil furnace is blowing black smoke whenever it's heating my place. I'm really not too familiar with this, what's going on?

it is not firing properly. It needs to be serviced by a PRO

Had someone come take a look at it. He tinkered in there for about 5 mins and fixed it

Fixed in 5 minutes?

Either you got extremely lucky or this servicer is a miracle worker. Did he/she do any testing or just adjust the flame by eye?
