Empire Furnace issue

5 posts in this topic

I have an 30,000 BTU empire furnace for my 6.5 x 14 King Crow. I had mice build a nest in it. I cleaned it out the best i could. The problem is the furnace isn't working to its full capability, only one of the burners is working, the other side wont stay lit. The pilot will work, but evenuatlly goes out. Do i bring it to a local heating guy? Do i take it apart and clean it? Thoughts/suggestions Anyone had this problem.. Im worried if i take it apart, I will break it..

any help would be appreciated

These are pretty simple furnaces. My guess is you did not get all of the stuff out of it and it is effecting air flow. You may be able to get all of the stuff out by removing the vent on the outside and inspecting/cleaning the vent and cold air return. I that does not work you may have to take it off the wall to get in a little deeper. At that point you may want to have someone professional do it but again there is not much to these things.

Thanks, I think I will try that approach. Something scares me about pulling apart the furnance when it's a sleeper house...

I will explore more

Hopper, I also have an Empire furnace, My trouble wasn't mice, it was 1000's of Asian Beetles. I took it apart and blew compressed air through it while flipping it over, must've been enough, furnace works GREAT. They're really simple units, just watch how you disassemble it and reverse the process. Phred52

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
