Make sure your vent duct is not clogged up. If the machine can't breathe properly it will short cycle the burner.
If this is ok, it sounds like the flame sensor has failed. Also, the thermistor should not read open, it should have some resistence. It changes depending on the temp. Open the back of the console and you should have a tech sheet that gives all the readings and diagnostic checks.
Post back to this thread if you need help going through it.
