Your Nozzle is probably plugged. I've found that to be the case most times. I work for a oil company and have found when people run out it tends to pull crudd from the bottom of the tank and plugs the nozzle. and while you're at it, you should change the oil filter and pump strainer. Good luck. If your unsure how to do any of the repairs I highly suggest you call a service guy to do it for you. Oil burners can be very dangerous, and can be a supplier of carbon monoxide in your home. Be carefull.

I had my oil changed in October after the "oil


Try this procedure and let me know if this does not work;

Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position but do not start the engine.

1. Press the Trip/Reset button until "Setup Menu Hold Reset" is displayed.

2. Then press and hold down the Trip/Reset button for approximately 2 seconds until "Reset For System Check" is displayed then release the Trip/Reset button.

3. Then immediately press and hold down the Trip/Reset button again for approximately 2 more seconds until "OIL 100% RESET IF NEW" is displayed then release the Trip/Reset button.

4. Then immediately press the Trip/Reset button once to display "HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL" then release the Trip/Reset button.

5. Then immediately press and hold the Trip/Reset button again for approximately 2 seconds until "OIL LIFE SET TO 100%" is displayed.

Turn off the ignition switch, and then start the engine to verify that the reset procedure did work, and you might have to repeat the procedure if the Trip/Reset button is not pushed fast enough, or it is not held down long enough, or it is held down too long during the reset procedure, and it may take a few attempts to be successful.
