Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Have you tried pushing the reset button? holding it down for 30 seconds? if so then I need to know what you have for a burner, ignition control and what the burner s attached to (furnace or boiler, brand and model)

Ok, it's apparent you can't give me the info I need to help you with this problem. I'm going to open this backup to my colleagues so maybe one of them can help. Please don't respond (even to acknowledge this post)until you get a response from us. If you respond first it will only delay your answer.
