If the board got wet it is toast,replace the board and check your condensate drain. If the new one gets wet your back to where you started and the warranty will be voided. You will have to buy from a dealer most supplies will not sell to unlicensed individuals

Is it ok to close vents in winter

Only a few...the furnace is rated @ a certain design static pressure, and when you close the could overheat the furnace, short cycling, etc.

Who knows? You gotta post a video of your furnace so we can see what you got. Here is the sequence of operation of a late model furnace. they all basically work the same way. They have a draft inducer fan that causes a vacuum in a small hose leading to the pressure switch. If the board reads negative pressure it know the draft motor is working and pulling a draft it then cause the ignitor to kick in and after a minute opens the gas valve. It wait a sec to verify flame with the flame sensor and then if that flame is there it keeps burning and after 30 more seconds the fan kicks in.
Most of the time if the ignitor ain't workin it is either bad or a limit has tripped due to some sort of overheat problem like birdnest or cobwebs and such.

Why does furnace overheat and the limit switch shuts it off?

Are you in the North East region of US?
For the pass 6 days I saw a lot of postings for furnace and humidifier failures.
Partly is because the weather but the root cause is lack of maintenance.
User think LIFETIME Electrostatic air filter is maintenance free.
That is not true.
It's wash-able and need to be handle with care.
Inspect the air filter and replace it..
Lack of air circulation cause the furnace frame from burning efficient (BLUE FRAME) to orange / red color.
Over time,the temperature sensor will be coated with carbon deposit and record a higher temp reading.
They circuit will activate the fail safe and not allow the igniter to start on.
In your case,limit switch shut itself off.
Here is a LINK to pictures of Weather King temp probes and sensors.
A clean filter and temp sensor will save you money.
Dial back the furnace to 65F until you can get hold of the filter and clean the sensor.
==== If the MODEL TAG is still in plain view then please post it on reply.
Please keep me posted on the fix via email.

What part do we replace first?

Door safety switch. You are sure you have power to furnace? jump out the G and R terminals on the furnace control board or turn your thermostat to Fan On to check. Make sure the door safety switch is in the closed position. Fan should come on. No fan, no power to unit. Check Emergency switch, circuit breaker and there may be a fuseable link in the wiring somewhere either above the unit or a condensate safety switch. Get power to the unit. Also check to see if there is a small fuse in the wiring inside the furnace or on the circuit board.
