Fuel Oil Furnace Problem - Help Needed!


I heat my home with an fuel oil furnace and the problem I'm having is:

The Intermittent Ignition Oil Primary which is a (Honeywell R8184G 4009) is making a loud clicking repetitive noise.

If I push in the red reset button it will work for a few cycles and then start making the clicking noise and kick the reset button out and the red light comes on. If I try to reset immediately it will only continue to make the clicking noise, I have to let it set for awhile before I can reset and the furnace will cycle again.

I have purchased and replaced with a brand new Honeywell R8184G 4009, but I'm still getting the same exact thing happening.

Please help if you know what's causes this... "It's Cold Outside"

Is your cad cell dirty.?
How old is the nozzle ?
What is your oil pressure ?

Sounds like the cad cell or its wires are beginning to short out.

I will have to check on the oil pressure and cad cell as far as the nozzle, I replaced it 2 years ago. Appreciate the feed back. I will respond with results tomorrow!

Nozzle should be changed every year.
