Here are some photos. I have more if there's something specific you want to see. The service card is from the first technician. The second one didn't leave a service card.

I had the impression he was referring to a piece inside the chamber. The company is Dead River. Any experience with their service? There's a technician near me, Roy Hubble. Anyone know his work?

I'm afraid I have you beat for boiler age. The original cast iron 1929 boiler was replaced in 2007, when it was 78 years old! Seriously. It was a monster. It took several strong men to haul it out of...

Boiler with hot water, radiators. I know he did inspect something inside, but I'm not sure what it was. He said that some piece that arches up over "something" (the chamber?) was bent inward and...

Yes, that's correct, no other changes.

The woodstove and furnace have separate chimneys. I'm not sure if the chimney is lined. I do have a CO detector and also had the CO measured by the fire department a few days ago---it was 0%.

The roof was replaced this year. I turned the furnace on in October and there was no problem. The smoke odor only started last week. I will check the manufacturer etc. later today.

My previous ancient furnace had an expansion tank. I regularly bled large amounts of air from the radiators. With the current furnace there is more or less no air to be bled. I don't heat the...

In other words, only the edge of the roof is urgent. Probably so, but when there's two feet of snow up there that's another story . . . I saw some cheaper knockoffs of the Avalanche roof rake online....

Next step?

At this point I don't know if I should call back the same oil company or try someone else? I'm concerned about paying for a 3rd service call from the same company, although both technicians seemed to...

It's not a whiff of smoke---it's enough that it's affecting the indoor air quality and I'm concerned about breathing it.

I don't smell if right away. This morning it took about 30 to 45 minutes before I smelled it. First the odor comes to the top of the cellar stairs. Then it starts to flow throughout the downstairs....

I can't really do anything myself with the furnace. I have zero knowledge of these things. The second guy said he put his hand in the chimney and saw light on his hand, thus it's not blocked. I asked...

The odor is in the air. I went away when I opened a window and a door to the outside. It returned when the furnace came on again.
