furnace keeps going off

Our furnace pump motor siezed up and we had to replace it. The furnace worked fine for a day or so, and then it went out again. We replaced the fuel nozzle and both ignition electrodes, and it was working better than ever, then it stopped again. We tried resetting it, but it won't stay on. It seems to have some backwards pressure on the fuel line. What else is there to check? There is fuel in the tank.

What kind of burner do you have? And what siezed, the pump or the motor? You may have a clogged oil line from the tank. Is the tank inside the basement?

Make sure tha flame sensor is clean. Sometimes when a burner puffs, it puts a coating of smoke or soot on the flame sensor and it can't see the flame clearly.

I'm also not sure what you mean by backward pressure on the fuel line. If you clear up those questions we can move forward.
