Hi we have a boulter boiler 135-165 classic in our home, we recently ran out of oil for it, today oil has been delivered however the boiler has stopped working. i assume this means it has gone into lockout, due to air in the pipe. any thing i can do to pull oil through/unlock the boile or is this gonna be an engineer call out? any help and advice happily recieved.

Call an Engineer - a goos one will make sure there is no water in the pipe and oil pump and will fit new filter element and vent the fuel line
attempting a DIY purge can lead to very expensive repairs being required

I'm going to one tommorow house holder got the Gardener to vent the boiler now its leaking oil pumping out black smoke and is blocked with soot (oh joy ! for me? ) :cry:

Ok, after reading other posts i guessed the process may be simple and i am a fairly handy bloke ;) but in some cases with no prior knowledge on my side and the potential for costly damage, i am not too much of a bloke to call them that know. thank you for the advice. ;) blankets again tonight.

Just got back from the job i mentioned where the Gardener had got the boiler going - Repair Bill £200!! I can't begin to tell you how sooty the boiler was I have had a Shower & a Bath but am still wearing soot patches
got through 4 hoover bags oil pressure was 400PSI + (off end of my gauge) should be 110 PSI whoops BIG MISTAKE!! :rolleyes:
