I just had my 1978 Axman Anderson steam oil burner
serviced after many years of neglect (except for
oil filter change) by HARTZ deposit NY. I must say
The tech was GREAT. He showed me all he was doing and
I learned a great deal.
After not being able to loosen the front plate due
to breaking studs he worked from the rear to vacuum the
boiler tubes through the 9 inch flue usin a brush.
He showed me the pump filter replacement. And how
to remove the nossle igniter. Using a screwdriver
he noted that the spark across the ignition springs
was only 3/4 inch. He recommended changing the
coil and used the coil from an ebay beckett burner
I had as a spare. When installed he was able to get a
spark almost across the 2 inches. He also replaced
the cad sensor with my ebay and controller. Put a
new (1 gal) nossle and cleaned and adjusted the
electrodes like new.
He showed me the efficiency measurements with draft
4 and 2, stack temp 425, and co. The efficiency
was 80%.

This firm is really professional in their work
and would recommend them to anyone.
I now feel that my antique in the basement works as
good as it can.
