Question about Heating & Cooling
My Beckett oil burner with a honeywell R7184P just did the same thing. Quit burning, blinks for half a second. The burner says press reset once, if it does not reset then call a local serviceman. It is cold here in Alaska, you betcha', and my oil must have jelled up. It happened once, but pressing reset solved my problem, two days later it stopped again. I applied heat (hair dryer) to my supply line, added an anti-jelling solution to my tank. Here is what I found.
"The Honeywell R7184P-1080 (interrupted control—transformer shuts down 10 seconds after flame is established) is now the standard control used on all Beckett oil burners along with the new “Cleancut” pump. The Honeywell control has both a 15 second pre-purge and a 15 second post purge feature, as well as internal self-checking of the control itself. The control has 15 second lockout timing plus a 10 second ignition carry over period. After 3 lockouts during the same call for heat, the control goes into restricted lockout., A restricted lockout condition may be reset by holding the reset button down for 30 seconds until the LED flashes twice. At any time the control is powered, the reset button may be held for 30 seconds to reset the lockout counter. There are several new “Service Features” with the R7184P control that make for easier servicing."
You have to press the reset button for thirty seconds. I don't know how cold it it there, or what number oil you guys are burning, but what I do know is that you guys have been pressing your reset button more than once.
This worked for me. Good luck.

Hold the reset button down til you get a the light to blink once....may take 30 seconds or so .
second, make sure you purge all of the air out of the fuel line..(my problem the burner wouldnt start,how air got in the line i will never know)
once all air is purged ,burner should operate without problems

The fast blink is restricted or "hard" lockout, press and hold the reset button while watching the green LED, after about 40-50 seconds the green LED will come on momentarily; this will reset the control and allow the burner tol attempt a restart.

Hold red button for 15 seconds, it will blink once,let go,furnace will try to start.
Mine wouldnt start,checked oil supply to furnace and i was not getting any.Looked in tank to make sure i had oil,and guage wasnt stuck,everything ok,Then pulled off filter and it was filled with crud.
Replaced oil filter, then bled system of air..Mine has a bleeder valve,it looks just like bleeder valve on car brakes.

Hi... I pressed the restart button numerous times, - the furnace won't even make a clicking sound, the green light is flashing. -- I don't know how many times I pressed the green button... I'm just seeing this now, about holding button down for 45-50 seconds. Will it be safe for me to try holding button down for 50 seconds, now???? Please help!

You should press and hold the reset button for 45-50 seconds, at that time it will blink for a second. That will actually reset te burner to factory default, then it will go into normal operation.
Remember it is important to replace the nozzle every year, it is the number one cause of lockouts. Also check the porcelin sleves around the electrodes, if they are broken/cracked you need to have electrod assembly replaced by a certified HVAC Tech. Also its very important to wear gloves when touching the porcelin part of the electrodes. Believe it or not the oil from your skin can cause them to have major defects and even ruin the part.
