    Let's start at the beginning:
    Is the power turned on?
    Is there fuel in the tank?
    Is the thermostat calling for heat?
    Does anything operate? Motor? Circulator?
    Do you have a MultiMeter to check for electric current?
    Have you pressed the reset button? If yes... DO NOT PUSH IT AGAIN
    When you pressed the reset button, did anything operate for a short time?

    Oil burners can be very dangerous.

    If the fuel pump is the " Pump?" you are talking about, and there is fuel oil leaking on the floor, You should not operate the burner until you have a oil burner professional repairman look at it

    I guess @bucka002 must have spent a Buck or 2 to get it fixed over the weekend.
