Oil Furnace

Hi,My heat would not go on after I turned up the thermostat. I pushed the rest button and the oil furnace kicked on. It stayed on until my home heated. So I waited, then turned up the thermostat a couple of hours later,and the same result the furnace will not go on. Please help if you can.

There can be a number of problems with your oil furnace.

A partially clogged nozzle.
A partially plugged oil filter.
A dirty Cad sensor. This is the sensor that "sees" the flame and shuts the unit down if the flame is missing or not correct.
An intermittent high voltage transformer.
Worn spark electrodes.

When was the last time you had the burner cleaned ?
What is the make and model of your unit.

I'll add another to PJ's list. Weak ignition transformer. This is a common problem with iron core transformers & once in a while with the electronic type.

What is the make & model of the control on which the blinking light is installed? Do you have one or two copper lines from the fuel tank to the furnace?
