    Keeps going out:

    Slo is right.

    Additionally, when the burner is getting ready to go out, goes it whine a lot? does it sound different after it is running for some time than after you reset it?

    It needs service. You shouldn't be hitting the reset button. Call a service person. If it is a plugged filter, you are damageing the fuel pump.

    could be anything

    from simple adjustments, to motor, control, puff switch if equipped, fan prover if power vented, pump and or coupling, transformer and or electrodes, resistor if older delayed oil valve, plugged/restricted oil supply-line, etc. Could be a lot of possibilities. Best to call a tech to check it out.
