Question about Heating & Cooling
What kind of ignition is it? If it is a Hot surface igniter(glow coil) look for a small, maybe 3-4 inch long rod that is mounted to or near the burner. It's probably on the burner on the side away from the igniter and would be in the flame when the burner comes on. Clean it with sand paper. It's a flame sensor and the igniter is sending a small amount of voltage through the flame(fire is a conductor) to the sensor and if it's dirty it won't complete the circuit. If after cleaning it works then great you need to get a new one within a few days. If it doesn't work then the igniter is probably weak and needs replacing but it could be something else so I would call for service instead of guessing.
