Try this, You will find on the opposite side of the ignitor their is a flame rod with a wire connected to it.Remove it and clean it with sandpaper and re install it and it should fix the problem.If this is dirty it won't sense ignition and the board thinks that is it introducing raw gas into furnace and it isn't igniting and shuts off as a safety precaution.If you see a blueish tinge on the flame rod you should probably replace it.

Goodman furnace gmh95090cxac wont stay lit keeps clicking will lite then clicks back off what would be the problem

Hello, if the burners light but do not stay on for more than 10 seconds, I would clean the flame sensor. The flame sensor is a metal rod that is on the opposite side of the Igniter, sometimes it gets coated by oxidation and does not sense the burner flame and shuts the Furnace down. To clean to kill power to tje furnace, remove flame sensor and clean with a steel wool, then reinstall and start Furnce back up. If this does not work then most likely the Igniter is too weak to ignite the gas and will have ro be replaced.

Riello oil burner problem - Furnce blower starts on thermostat call but Riello burner needs to be manually reset for ignition.

BUrners trip on safety for a number of reasons. When the burner is working you should not see any smoke in the smokepipe. If you do then the settings are off and adjustments need to be made. If the unit does not actually light then the problem can either be with the nozzle, the oil pump or filter. Lastly, you may not be getting spark. If you get more specific I may be able to guide you through step by step.

Remove the cover of the circuit board and controls on the outside unit. Some units have a thermostat that allows you to set the temperature at which it switches to the second stage of heat. Set that for about 34 degrees.

Ruud Achiver series Furnace issue

Sounds like it may be a bad flame sensor. After the ignition, the flame sensor needs to send 24v back to the gas valve to indicate the the ignition took place. If it does not do this, the gas will shut of as a safety precaution. The flame sensor can often be cleaned up with a piece of sandcloth to fix this problem, or it may be replaced.
