Oil burner is triggering motor reset button and won't start
The burner on my oil furnace has a motor reset button or safety button on top of it that pops out and shuts off the burner if there is a problem. I'm trying to find out what types of problems would trip this button.
Wednesday I went to shower and had no hot water as the furnace wasn't running. I pressed the reset button on the stack control and the motor reset button on the burner and the burner started. I checked the fan for a blockage - didn't find any and cleaned the end of the stack control.
Furnace ran fine until early evening on Friday when the button popped again on the burner. I pressed the reset button on the motor and the stack control and this time the furnace won't start. Any help in troubleshooting the root cause would be appreciated! Thank you!
