ABSTRACT
The author tackles issues on the original equipment manufacturer setup specifications for oil burners. He points out that the only correct way to setup any burner, gas or oil, is after the installation of the heating appliance to the OEM's guidelines. The books on oil burning, namely, "The Handbook of Oil Burning" and the "Advanced Residential Oilburners" suggest that using instrumentation in the hands of a qualified service technician is the only correct and safe way to adjust an oil burner.
