ThermoPride OL5-85RB no flame

I have a ThermoPride OL-85RB with a Becket Model AF burner, and can't get the flame to light on it.  Really don't want to pay to have someone service it, can you give me any advice?  I've bled the line, switched off all power to it, cranked the thermostats way up, and turned it back on - it cycled through, and went to lockout mode(1/2 second flashing light). Held the red button for 15 seconds to reset lockout, and it did the same thing.  What's next?  Thanks in advance.

    Quit pushing the red button and call a pro. You are just flooding the fire pot at this point.

    Depending on how badly you have saturated the unit with oil, you may be looking at a very smoky start up to new equipment. If you do finally get it to light, you could be looking at a self-inflicted puff back. Sorry to say, but every time you hit that reset, you increase the cost of the inevitable service call.
    If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy!
