    Hi, I have the same intermittent problem. 1 month old installation, nice new unit.

    - Thermostat calls for heat
    - Blower motor starts
    - Ignitor glows red
    - Gas valve does not come on before the Ignitor quits
    - Furnace tries this 3 times, quits, and then light blinks once

    I can shut down power to furnace, letting it reset I think, and then furnace tries again and usually works fine.

    Suggestions welcomed, thanks

If the ignitor is glowing, we will need to check for 24 volts AC across the gas valve. If you do not have it, look at replacing the ignitor first. Even if it glows, it may not be sending the signal to the control board. Secondly you will need to replace the control board. If you get 24 volts for a few seconds but does not ignite, you either have a bad gas regulator, dirty burners or a bad gas valve. What is abnormal is that you say it runs for 15 minutes but does not restart.

Hope this is some help

Repair t 4000

You did not state whether the flame ignites or not. If it doesn't, the check to make sure the gas line to the dryer is not turned off. You should hear the gas valve "click" while the ignite is glowing.
You can "crack" the gas line at the value to make sure gas is going to the valve.
If you have gas at the value, and do not hear the click, then the gas valve is not opening. Either the valve or the controller is not working.
If you are getting a flame but it goes out quickly, then it is possible the flame sensor is bad.
If you do not feel comfortable doing this, call a qualified appliance repairer technic

The glow stick lights up; approx30 seconds later, you can hear and smell the gas turn on, but the flame does not start

Depending on the specific unit you have the hot surface igniter (glow stick) may be only for lighting the pilot, which then ignite the main burners. The flame has to be proved before the gas valve opens for the main burners. This is done by the flame rod, which could be faulty in your case. The proximity of the igniter could also prevent ignition. Check that the flame rod is clean and secure. Note. be very careful when servicing gas appliances, and never ever use lighters, matches or any other flame source to light them except for the ignition system supplied by the appliance. These appliances are designed and built with safety devices to prevent ignition when it senses a fault or malfunction. This is all for safety. Do not bypass safety devices, it can kill. Call a qualified tech.

Does the hot surface igniter glow? If not, it is probably cracked. If this is
