Burner probably just needs a tune up. Parts are minimal.

What do you mean?
Is the transformer bad? What is a burner tuneup?
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 3 months ago

Burner tune up consists of checking or replacing the electrodes, new oil filter, new nozzle, fuel/air mix adjustment, combustion test. Oil burners should be tuned up every year or 2.
