Unhappy homeowner

Following service and cleaning of our Thermopride oil furnace it emits smell of smoke when firing. I am wondering if nozzle may be too large and injecting too much oil on start-up. What size nozzle should we have and where can I buy one wholesale. I also need instructions for installing.

You just had the unit cleaned....right. Now you're smelling oil.... call the cleaning guy back. Find out if he put the right nozzle back in. I don't see why he wouldn't. The cleaning guy should stand behind his work.

PJmax is absolutely correct. Sometimes you get a bad nozzle out of the box or it could be a minor adjustment. Call the guy back & let him know what's going on.
