Buderus burner reset

Ran out of oil. Went to prime burner and upon pushing reset button, nothing happened, no burner start, nothing.
Happened once before 2 yrs ago after running out of fuel, 24 hrs later, was like nothing ever happened, started right up, primed and operated flawlessly since.......until now.
Any ideas?
It's cold in here.

    What kind of burner? What kind of control? Some have to be re-set in a certain sequence if it stopped while running, and tried to restart 3 times, but doesn't start.

    The burner pump may have run dry this time and you'll need a tech to prime it. If it's a one line system. Or, possibly sludge got stirred up and even if it's a 2 line system, filters/lines/internal burner parts are clogged. Best bet is to call a tech.

    The pump/blower will not run

    There's a reason for that.

    Ice asked a couple of pertinent questions.

    Don't get pissy with Techs that are trying to help you for free!!!!!!!!!

    Check your switches and breaker. Push in and release the burner reset button. If nothing is still happening, I'm afraid you are going to have to make the call :(

    And for goodness sake don't keep pushing the reset button... if it doesn't work on the first push, it's tech. time.

    Turn the switch off for a few min, then back on. See if the reset is now lit. Also, you cant be rough with those controls. The connections where the control slides into may be an issue. I would have it looked at, and post in the oil section in the future.

    Riello's are bomb proof in the hands of an experienced tech. They differ from "Normal" controls. But they are completely different animals.

    If it ran out of oil, it needs to be primed. Unless it is a 2-pipe or a Tigerloop. If its a single pipe, how do you explain about loosening the thingy screw, and with a pocket flashlight in one hand, and the other hand on the thingy, flip on the power switch (with the hand with the flashlight) and with the other, slide the thingy back ever so slightly with the flashlight shining in the crack by the thingy thing, and with a hose on the bleeder, let the burner run until you get oil out of the hose into a can. Then shut it off so you can recycle the burner after you put the thingy back. And keep your hand on the power switch in case someone tried to start it by hitting the reset only once (more like 10) times. So if and when it does start. it might do the boiler dance and dance the Rumbla. Maybe even get overly excited and blow the smoke pipe right out of the breeching and set off the smoke detectors.

    I think I left out a few steps.

    Update: left the Buderus alone overnight to contemplate it's bad behavior
    (No response when pushing reset button)
    I tried again this morning and the unit started, allowed me to prime it and fired flawlessly!
    Thank you all for your input.
