Unhappy furnace starts but shuts down after 1-3 mins

Beckett Corp af65xp

When I cold start the furnace it runs for 3-5 minutes then shuts down. I can hit the reset button (a minute or so after it shuts down) and the burner will start but shuts down after 45 secs to a 1 minute.

This is a new house for me and i have never delt with an oil furnace before.

Thank you
