Default Oil fired heating reboot

Hi,

Ran out of oil (again) in our kerosine based heating system last week,
I ran the oil through last time with a builder pal of mine and intend
to do the same again but wondered if there is anything I need to know
or it there is a guide anywhere?

Basically we undid the oil filter a bit to see if oil was getting to
that and then waited a while trying the reset switch on the burner
every 15 mins, eventually it caught and was fine.

Thanks

Yeah, you need to learn to stop running the heating system empty. It
needs fuel to run.

There may be a bleeder fitting by the pump. Open it slightly and hit the
reset. Keep a wrench on it so you can tighten it as soon as fuel comes out.
Of course, keep a can under it and a hose on it into the can.
