Two interesting service calls today.
The first one was on the ocean. The HO sid she saw some of her flowers walking past her window, via a squirrel and it deposited them in the duct for their direct vent fireplace........no screen no less. Gotta love that ocean air. I had to take the WHOLE fireplace apart so I could dig a basketball sized mass of nesting material out of their firebox !!!!! 4 hours later they are up and running !!!
Call #2, got a call that the pilot keeps going out after 3-5 minutes. I'm thinking flame liftoff.....naw, wouldn't be that easy. Classic case of tinkeritus. When I arrive, the glass is off, logs out and the burner tube is sitting on the floor....I know this is going to be fun $$$$$$. I test the pilot, VERY lazy.......... I take the pilot assembly apart, no freakin' orfice and he has turned the pilot WAY down and of course, it is a funky orfice !!!! I guess I get to see them tomorrow as well.
Don't ya just love it when they think these are DIY?????
