My steam heating system will not stay on. Any suggestions?

Not enough information to go on by remote. Do NOT push that reset button again if you like your eyebrows.
Could be a number of things, few of which would be "do it yourself".

Igniters, draft, fuel filter... others will have far better suggestions, but I would rather you not undergo skin grafts.

    Steam heating system

    I have a steam heating system and it will not stay on. I press the reset button and it will go on momentarily and then shut off again. How can I get it to stay on???
