CB-86-AH swing away conversion
« on: November 14, 2015, 02:34:18 am »
Does any one make a conversion kit that allows the older clean burn furnaces to have the swing away option? My furnace is mounted on the ceiling and is a pain to service I have to remove the gun and carry it down a step ladder to service it.

DSI can get you the parts you need to convert it. The last version of that burner and firebox had the swing out burner. 

Are you removing the burner to clean ash ?

When I clean the ash I remove the burner as well as the access panel on the back so I can clean the ash out of the tubes and use my shop vac to remove  the ashes out. It is just a pain to have to remove the gun to replace or clean the nozzle I dont mind unhooking the oil line or air line but carrying it down the 12 foot step ladder is a pain. I just need the hinge to make it a swing away someone had them on Ebay last year but cant locate them this year.

Ok, I have never removed the burner to clean ash. It is a pain with those old style burners to remove them and carry down the ladder for doing work on them.

Did you call DSI ? They might have an old burner laying around and sell you the parts cheap if you do not want to buy new.

I apologize, I just figured you had talked to them before since they are the Clean Burn dist. for your area.
