Unhappy Beckett AFG Series with R7184B honeywel No light: cant reset

Like most of us that need to do it ourselves, I cannot afford to call anyone for help. I have a beckett oil furnace and the reset light is NOT on. I did not run out of oil. Just woke up and it was not working. I tried to reset but nothing happens. Wiped the cad cell detector but It was not dirty. When I turn the power off then back on, the green light quickly flashes but that is all. I am a little nervous playing with this thing so I need to have some guidance as to what I should try first. Thanks for any help you can give.
Marie

Since the green light flashes, we know there is power getting to the control.
Install a small jumper between the terminals where the thermostat wire connects. If the burner starts in about 15 seconds, you have a problem with the thermostat or its wires.

Hold down the reset button for 30 sec (untill the LED flashes twice) and that should unlock.

If it goes into lock out, then something is wrong.

Beckett AWG Series w honeywellR7184B No LED light-Thermostat works fine with Air

The thermostat is brand new & was installed with central air in July. The air conditioning is working fine on the same thermostat.I am still trying to read and learn more about what to look for. I really appreciate your advice. Whats next? Me and my children were fortunate enough to stay warm enough with space heaters last night. Thank goodness its not THAT cold yet.

the light is not at all lit... Just very quickly lights if I turn the power switch on. I tried the reset button but nothing happens. Yes, something is wrong. I am trying to determine what it is that caused it to shut down during the night. It lasted through the storm but the next day it gave up.

Is the oil tank outside? It maybe got water in the tank from the storm?

No its inside in dry basement. I also checked the oil filter to see if there was any sludge or debris but it was fine.
