oil burner needs reset


What is the most likely control causing an oil burner's reset to trip. Already had boiler cleaned. Filters are new, old was clean. New nozzle installed. So I think fuel is not the problem. But I can have a good flame and suddenly it just trips and goes off. Will not stay running without occasionally tripping. Boiler service man was here twice and cannot find the problem.

Cad cell (fire eye) not seeing the flame properly, dirty or weak cell, improperly positioned cell are a couple possibilities.
