oil smell

I bought and installed this alpine oil forced hot air furnace last fall and
put it in. Pretty much a direct exchange/fit. It started up and has
run perfectly.

But lately we are getting that oil smell. There is also a little bit of
oil on the burner. It ran fine all winter, and I didn't touch anything
to adjust it when I put it in.

I don't know where to start to adjust anything, and I don't even
see specific adjustments in the manual.

You could have a fouled nozzle. Check the nozzle, filter, & pump screen. What is the model number of the furnace & what brand of burner is installed?
