Question Oil furnace reset

I just had an inspection done on a house my husband and i are in the process of purchasing. Its a forclosure so everything was winterized then dewinterized for the inspection. The plumber never bleed the lines for the oil boiler so when the inspector fired up the boil it kept shutting off. After he reset it 3 times, it went into lockdown mode. Is there any way for us to fix the problem ourself or do we have no other choice but to call a plumber in again? PLEASE HELP ME!!!

I would certainly have expected the plumber to make sure the burner operated properly. I would call his company back & complain. Just a passing thought: Is there fuel in the tank?

It should be the sellers responsibility to make sure the heating system is working properly.

Its a foreclosure, just tell them you want another $8000 off in case you need to replace the heating system, they should respond that it is as is, orrrr they may just make sure it works.
