Question about Heating & Cooling
Sounds like you could have 1 of 2 problems:
1. The flame sensor is dirty. The flame sensor is a small rod just a little bigger around than a pencil lead. It is located in the burner section just a few inches left or right from your glow ignitor. The flame will surround this sensor, but it the sensor is dirty, it cannot sense the heat of the flame. Take the sensor out of the furnace. It generally has one screw holding it, and one wire connected to it. Use emory cloth or light sand paper, or even a small wire brush to clean the sensor. DON'T GET IT WET.
2. You may have air in the gas line. This happens especially if the gas has been turned off to the house. You can bleed the gas line by loosening the gas line connected to the furnace. (furnace turned off) Bleed it just for 10 seconds or so, tighten the gas line, check for leaks with soapy water, and try the furnace again. You may have to do this more than once.
