Anyone fimiliar w/ energy logic or black gold furnaces ?

So my buddy has a Lanair waste oil furnace for his shop which doesnt work. He decided to just replace the entire fan / atomizer unit and be done with it ...

And then he found a fan / atomizer way cheaper. Thats where the problem begins. Its for a EL / BG waste oil furnace. IM not to worried about having to ake up a preheater, but i need to figure out the power and thermostat wiring to the burner unit

I figured out the round 6 pin plug on the side is the preheater wiring, and that the corded square 5 pin is the "burner plug" (hows that for a generic name?) and there is also one more small 2 pin plug that i cant figure out. At first i thought it was for the wall themostat, but if it was it would just be screw terminals, not a plastic plug.

looks like this:

Oil pump and fan, fan control, and preheater are already wired up on the Lanair power box, and the wall thermostat wires into it as well, so i think i just have to figure out whats what on the 5 prong and make my connections.

get online

search for the brand name and model when you find it ask for a wiring diagram you can usually down load these, maybe Honeywell has one also check and see on line. Almost everything made in USA can be researched by someone on line

I still cant find a wiring diagram. The company sells a manual, but who knows whats in it. Donno if i feel like spending $18 to NOT get an answer. I would think that if the manual had a proper wiring diagram someone would have introduced that page to their scanner by now.

I did however find that the 5 prong plug only has 3 actual wires. I assume this is done so the burner can only be plugged into the electrical box on the heater, If you killed power to the heater and then plugged in ONLY the burner your just ASKING for thermonuclear meltdown of the heat exchanger / chimney.

Not much to these old oil guns.

Power goes in to fire up the pump to bring the oil into the center nozzle, power also goes to the twin ignitor (porcelin thingy with the tungsten tip) located after the nozzle. The power source is controlled by the thermostat wires coming in to the main power control box turning the oil and spark off and on.

There is usually a diagram located inside one of the boxes to show the distribution of power. The 'black toaster box' usually has a couple of coils in it which connects to the ignitor. The box with the red reset button should have a schematic inside the cover or Google the part number for a schematic. The black rectangular box below should be the divider box that split up the incoming wiring. The 5 prong plug is probably power in with a ground and power out to the FAN control. Hope this helps ya.

Meant to add: We used to put a pre-filter on these puppies that was a mesh type filter material with a aluminum in/out top with a bolt-thru steel cannister bottom, a washable type of filter, It kept out the crud and sludge from the used oil, so it wouldn't bugger up the pump.
