sounds like you have bad flame sensor or the sensor is in a bad postition. To get eliminate the lockout turn the power off to the unit and back on again. Look at the circuit board light and see what the troubleshooting code is.

SOURCE: Gas valve lockout
It means that the furnace isn't igniting and for safety the control board is preventing the gas valve from opening. Turn off the power to the furnace for a few seconds then observe what the furnace does in heat mode. Some furnaces will run the blower for a minute after you power it back up. After that see if the furnace tries to come on. If you are still getting the code then one of you high temp limit or roll out switches has tripped. Now is the time for a service tech. Make sure that you check you filter and air flow too. Low air flow means the furnace may be over heating.
The other thing is the hot surface igniter. Look closely at it with the power off. Do you see a white spot on the element or a crack. If so the HSI is bad. It's an easy replacement but DO NOT touch the carbon element with your fingers and be very careful handling it as it is EXTREMELY fragile.

Can you please verify the furnace mode, nothing comes out with the BGU100168 model #. Is it an oil or gas furnace? Was it bought at Sears?
In the mean time you can try cleaning the filter, with a piece of emery or sand paper sand clean the flame sensor (thermocouple) in front of the pilot light (if applicable). Reset the unit by disconnecting the power for 5 min. and tuning it back on.
Keep me posted!!
