The first thing I would do is make sure the flame sensor is clean, this is a metal rod immersed in the burner flame on the opposite side of the igniter. If too much oxidation builds up on it, it will not allow the burner to stay lit. To clean, just turn off furnace and remove flame sensor and clean with steel wool and then reinstall. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the gas valve.

Turn off the power to furnace.
on the last burner to light there is a small metal rod in front of the burner. This is a safety called the flame sensor. It is dirty. Unscrew it from the bar ( 1 Screw) unplug the connector wire from it and clean it with steel wool. it will be kind of burnt. Plut back in place and turn on the furnace to cycle.

,Hello, Make sure the flame sensor is clean near the burners, The flame sensor is a metal rod that is on the opposite side of the ignitor. To clean the flame sensor you will need some steel wool, turn off power to the furnace and remove the flame sensor and clean it with the steel wool. After cleaning reinstall it and turn power back on to furnace.
