Old Peerless oil fired Boiler need help please..

Boiler #wb/wu-04-0496

Boiler does not ignite all of the time and requires a reset to restart it,
have allready replaced the thermostat and changed the oil filter.
Where do we go from here?

I realize this isn't a reply to the other question here, but didn't know how to post a question.
Thanks for any and all help we receive.

Oil fired boiler

Having to reset is an indication of a problem. This problem could be almost anywhere on the boiler. With oil fired equipment the source could be a dirty nozzle or pump screen, worn electrodes, a weak ignition transformer, & the list goes on. I suggest you contact a local service company familiar with oil fired boilers. Most servicers don't mind if you watch or ask questions. How long has it been since the equipment was professionally serviced?

The boiler was completely serviced in the early fall.

we changed the oil filter again last week (the oil was very dense and gooky on the filter) changing it allowed three days of correct operations.
Now for the past few days it has had to be reset once each day.

You should get a service done. It's cheap and eliminates a lot of the causes of this, and if not the tech can give you a diagnosis.
