The repairman was out this morning and fixed an oil leak in my FHA system. The leak was in small thin copper tubing that connects to the motor on the furnace. It had been leaking for about 4 days and has really stunk up the house every time the furnace is on. The repairman replaced the copper line, wiped down the motor, the pan under the motor and the wires leading down to the chamber where the air filter is. He also sprinkled some powder under the motor and in the air filter chamber to nuetralize the oil smell. It has been 12 hours since the leak has been fixed and I am still getting a pretty strong oil smell when the furnace is running. My questions are is this common, if so how long should it take get ride of the oil smell, or do you think that there is still a problem with the furnace. I forgot to mention that the repairman also replaced the fuel nozzel.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
