Is your thermostat working?
As simple as this sounds, your thermostat is sometimes the culprit of your no heat situation.
It could be as simple as your batteries being dead -check your batteries!
It could also be that your thermostat is not calling for heat, due to a subtle difference between the actual room temperature and what the thermostat is reading. To test this, simply turn your thermostat up 5-10 degrees to see if this more significant change in temperature makes a call for heat, thereby turning the furnace on.
Is your emergency switch on?
Often times your emergency switch for your heating system is located at or outside the door to the furnace room, or at the top of your basement stairs. It is toggle switch with a red switch plate simply labelled “Emergency, On, Off.”
It’s important to ensure it is in the “On” position, as sometimes it can be bumped or turned off in error.
Note: If you try the reset on your burner, and nothing happens at all, it is likely a power issue. The first thing you are going to want to check in this situation is that your emergency switch is turned on.
Are you out of fuel?
The easiest way to find out if you are out of fuel is to check your gauge. To avoid a run-out, Barracuda is pleased to offer automatic delivery to all customers at no additional charge.
