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?

Furnace keeps shutting off


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