Default Furnace goes into lockout mode!

We just had the yearly maintenance done on our furnace. Lately it has been going into lockout mode and I have to reset it. It is an oil furnace and is only 3 years old.

Any ideas why it would be doing this?

Thanks,
Bill

I would call the company that did the yearly service back to check why.
There are a few reasons why it would lock out and they have the means available to properly troubleshoot the problem.

if its still only 3 years it might still have the manufacturer warranty on it, most are 3 years. Your service company should be able to tell you very quickly what it needs, they might not even charge you if its something dumb.

Totally agree with Redwoods. Call them first and check. They might know the answer to why it got locked out.
