Furnace keeps shutting off
 
My inter therm furnace keeps shutting off in my trailer. It's 28 degrees outside and 67 inside. The outdoor tank is full. I opened the front panel and pushing the reset button. Turns on them about 5 seconds turns off. What could be wrong and what can I do?

Plugged or bad nozzle, bad ignition transformer, bad primary, dirty or bad cell. Weak oil pump. Just a couple quick possibilities.

hi ,, dont push reset button to many times if its oil ,,, the chamber could saturate with oil then if it did ignite ,,, wouldnt be pretty .... be careful
