continue our conversation. If you ran out of oil you do need to purge the air from the oil line. To do this you need a 3/8" (typically) open end wrench, a small container to catch the oil and a small piece of 1/4" od rubber tubing (the tubing isn't vital it just makes it a little easier). Locate the bleed fitting on the oil pump (on the left side of the oil burner where the oil line connects) it has a hex with a small hose barb protruding. Position your container directly below it. Loosen the hex. You will get a little oil and maybe a few bubbles. Now hit the reset button on the burner control and let it run until it’s a steady stream of oil (no bubbles). Tighten the hex back up and you're done. The burner should fire up once you close off the bleeder. You may need to hit the reset more than once. If your ignition control (the device with the reset button on the burner) is a R7184 then the control will go into a hard lockout if you push the reset more than twice. You need to hold the button down for at least 30 seconds to release the lockout.

I just noticed you are in the UK. I'm in the States so your equipment might be different than what I'm referring to. Can you give me a picture of your burner? click on ADD FILES next to the SEND button to post a pic here
Ok, this is not a burner config that we see in the States. So I need a better pic from you. The pic you posted is out of focus
Ok, I see the reset button on the ignition control (white button on the control box lower right) but I don't see a bleeder on the pump so I'm going to open this back up to my colleagues in the UK. Please don't respond even to acknowledge this post until we get back to you.
Is it making any attempt to start?
