Probably not the thermostat Carl... if that's an oil burner (I'm guessing it is), please do NOT keep hitting that reset button. That button only pops up when the flame on the burner has failed... so it's telling you that there is a problem with the burner lighting, or holding flame. If you keep hitting that button, you could create a buildup of unburnt oil in the combustion chamber.

How's your oil tank? almost empty? filters changed lately? when was the last time the system was serviced?

You might consider calling a techie in.

If it's not an oil burner, tell us what reset button you are pushing.
