Check fuel level. Check for a blown fuse or open circuit breaker, or if a switch has been left off. Get some fuel. Check for a blown fuse or open circuit breaker, or if a switch has been left off.
Again the furnace may lack fuel or there may be a problem with oil delivery. There could be a plugged nozzle, filter, or oil line, or a valve could be left off. There may be a cracked porcelain. The problem could be a weak transformer/igniter, electrodes set incorrectly, too much air, oil pump not working, or pump coupling stripped.

Clean or replace the nozzle, adjust the burner according to manufacturer’s specifications, or replace the end cone.
Adjust air and perform a combustion analysis. Check chimney condition and heat exchanger condition. Check manufacturer’s ratings plate for the correct nozzle size, spray pattern, angle, and oil pump pressure.
Odor or fume problems could be caused by the same things that create smoke problems. There may be a partially plugged nozzle, the burner may need adjustment, or the furnace may not have the proper end cone. This could also be caused by a cracked heat exchanger.
Other causes, are delayed ignition, the heat exchanger and/or chimney needs cleaning, combustion air has been hindered, or items are being stored too close to the smoke pipe or furnace.
Clean or replace the nozzle, adjust the burner, or replace the end cone. Check for a cracked heat exchanger and replace.
