We have an oil-fired AGA, never had many problems.
Last week though, it went out and I wasn't able to relight it.
The engineer diagnosed a partially blocked filter back at the tank, fixed it and relit.
However, since then, we have had a bad smell of oil which appears to be coming from underneath the hot plate. The engineer (by phone) has said it is to do with our flue, which he has long said we need 'lined' (to create a better updraft) but the smell is not coming from the flue and it is also too coincidental that this problem has suddenly materialised. Also, the smell appears to be more like unburned fuel than exhaust
Is it likely to be that the oil flow rate has not been properly recalibrated? Apparently, the engineer turned it 'up to full' to show my wife how little oil was coming through from the tank.
The other immediately possibility I can think of is that a bit of oil was spilt during the original attempts to relight the aga, because I assumed that the supply pipe had filled with carbon when the aga went out and disconnected the thing a couple of times
Any ideas gratefully received!
