Oil furnace - running but no heat

Our oil furnace makes a humming noise for 15 seconds or so. Then a minute or two later the furnace seems to kick on, but no hot air is blowing. It is blowing cold air. It runs for about a minute and shuts off. Does this once every 20 minutes or so. There is oil and the ducting coming from the furnace is hot. It is also warm in the closet where the furnace is. So seems like there is heat and the blower (?) is working but it is not blowing hot air.

will have technician out tomorrow (after the holiday) but was wondering if anyone had suggestions.
thank you.
