Trouble shooting manual for Model# RGUJ-05EA-ER RHEEM GAS FURNACE

I need a Trouble shooting manual for Model# RGUJ-05EA-ER RHEEM electric ignition GAS FURNACE.
Igniter turns red hot but the Gas Valve just shakes and makes a clicking sound and then the ignitor will go out.
Furnace does not fire up and fan does not kick in.
Gas valve is Honeywell Part# VR8205A 2008 reg 3.5 ADJ 3-5 Range 24V 60HZ total current .5 A uses class 2 transformer.
I also do not see any type of control board with a digital read out flashing any error code. Please Help.

Replace the gas valve....test for 24volt at the gas valve input.  if you have this then it's a def gas valve relay not working.

I have a RHEEM RGUJ-05EA-ER GAS FURNACE in my attic. early in the morning and late at night when the temperature is low it does not trigger on. The thermostat is new as well as the HOT SURFACE IGNITION...

Couple ideas here. First is make sure the thermostat is level. Most do not work unless they are level. Second, make sure there is enough fresh air. It make have a low oxygen sensor which keeps it from lighting.

How do you lite the pilot lite on a Rheem Gas Furnace Model #rgma-125a

If I recall correctly, model number Rheem furnace you listed has electronic ignition to light the pilot, when the home's thermostat calls for heat. Is this what you're having a problem with?

Furnance will not heat

Check your voltage going into the gas valve. It should be 24-27 volts. If it is to low the gas valve will chatter. If the voltage is strong enough you have a bad gas valve.

Furnace will not light

What code is the control board flashing when it tries two or three times? Does it even fire? Does it go straight to fan and lockout?
