Before I call a repair man would anyone here have an answer to why my oil burner will not kick on? Because of the cost of oil and the summer months offering some relief from the expense I decided to switch off the emergency switch so my expense on heating the hot water would be limited. For 2 days I have heated water for dishes on the stove, because there are very few dishes. However for bathes, I turned the switch on to allow hot water. This went fine for both days, and today when I turned it on the burner did not turn on.

The green light is intermittently flashing by the re-set red button. I attempted to re-set it yet nothing happened. Is there something I need to do now or must I call the repair man and never switch the hot water off again?
