Honeywell R7184B Recycle mode and lockout - flame will not light, please help!

Hello, I'm trying to get the Honeywell R7184B oil heating furnace to light. I've tried a bunch of things. First I tried just hitting the reset button. There is a sound happens and then it shortly turns off, no heat is detected and the LED light just keeps flashing. Then, I tried holding it down for 30 seconds - which caused the same roaring sound to occur - while also keeping the bleeder valve open. The LED light switched to green, and the fans turned on in the house. After a short period of time, however, they turned back off and the LED light was flashing again.

I tried this a couple of times, and still no luck

Help please!!!!

Okay, update. I tried turning the whole system off by turning the thermostat off (since I read somewhere this can help) and then turning it back on. The furnace turned back on when the heater was set back to "on" and ran maybe three cycles where the furnace was roaring and the green LED light was on. Then it switched and the fan was turned on, but was blowing hot air, and then switched back to fans off but furnace on.

After a little bit of this, the whole system shut back down again and is back to a flashing LED light.

Try resetting again by pushing & holding the red button for 30 seconds. As soon as the motor starts open the bleeder. If you get any air or foam, you likely have an air leak in the fuel system somewhere.
How long has it been since the heater was serviced?
