If you have to push the burner reset to get it to fire it then the burner probably needs a tune up. When was the last time the burner was serviced?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Two or three years

Ok, I'd suggest you get the burner tuned up. It really should be tuned up every year, 2 on the outside. If you're a mechanic I can walk you through a tune up but you won't have the test equipment to properly adjust the burner. The test equipment costs over $1000
