That would be a little red button on the box at the oil burner itself. If your oil burner stops running the first thing you should check is the reset button. If you press it and the burner fires up then that was the problem. If the button should trip again then there is a definite problem and you should schedule a service call immediately. PLEASE Do not keep resetting the button and ignoring the problem.
Now, what is this button and why would it trip?
It is a safety device. It shuts the burner down when it thinks there is a problem. It is on the primary control and is hooked-up to a cad cell, which is basically a light sensor. (The same thing that turns outside lights on at dusk.)
On a call for heat, with the burner running, the cad cell senses the light of the flame. If it stops sensing the light of the flame, it causes the red button to trip, shutting down the burner before any significant damage can be done.
Now, why would the sensor stop sensing light while the burner is running?
Many reasons, and almost all of which require a service call. And please, for your own safety, not to mention quality and efficiency, do not attempt your own repairs or maintenance on oil burners. The transformer and/or ignitor is aproximately 10,000 volts.
