You have come to the inevitable end of DIY on oil burners without having the specs to set the burner exactly the way the factory designed it, and not enough of the right instruments to know if the chimney draft, cleanliness of the passages, and chamber pressure is correct. you eventually want to get the instruments to know the proper:

Oil nozzle pressure ____
Pump suction pressure _____
draft over the fire _____
draft in the fire chamber ____
No smoke setting ____
CO2 percentage ____
room temperature _____
Stack temperature _____
Combustion efficiency _____

Then you will have a starting point to know, after all parts are clean and set to factory specs, if a control is failing or not.


The alternative is to find a trained repairman who knows what the specs should be and have the instruments to set the burner up properly. There is a limit to moving parts around and getting them in place that is reached when it is time to know about combustion and how to get the most out of a burner and heater.
