Question about Heating & Cooling
Have you cleaned your flame sensor? Take a piece of emery cloth or a piece of light sand paper and sand it a little. It is located in the burner section and it is usually to the left side of the unit and it looks like a L. Hope this helps.

Welcome to fixya,
You said, Amana Air Command 80, 20 years old.
Furnace does not start.
Good power to furnace.
Thermostat properly set.
Where do I start looking?
Sounds like you possibly have one or more bad jets if the unit is a gas furnace!
Let me know how it goes.
WOW, listen to this story!
I understand you are looking for the solution to fix your furnace your self.
But I want to tell you my story about my smart wife and our furnace.
When we moved into this house the furnace was 20 years old and she suggested that we put a new one that it will save us money.
I laughed at her and replied if it's not broken why fix it!
Six years later it finally broke down and I replaced the whole furnace and central air unit with a new one.
Our utility bill went down $100 dollars a month!
That's $7200. that I lost over 6 years due to not respecting my wife's power of reasoning!
If you can afford it or can get financing replace any unit 20 years old and it will pay for it self.
Can you imaging $1200. a year for 20 years is $24,000 dollars I'm saving with a new and efficient unit.
Do the math!!!!!!!!!
Huuum, Hope I gave you some good fatherly advice.

This sounds like your condenser contactor, contacts are stuck. They weld together if an ant or other debree get between the contacts. Turn off the electric breaker to the outdoor unit as if the outdoor unit runs without the indoor unit running you may damage your outdoor unit compressor.
I would suggest you call a service company. The part should run retail @ 30 to 40 dollars then the service call charge. This repair should take less than 1/2 hour.
