Try cycling the power to the unit see if it resets and then starts or is it throwing a code again the code list should be on inside of access door

I only see the Diagnostic code represent how many flashes, form 2 flashes to 9. is that what you ask for?
Expert:  Rick Mather replied 7 years ago.
Yes do they tell you any info on what 2 flashes mean then we can know where to guide you. But first of all I would try two things

1 Clean Flame Rod with scotch brite or fine steel wool

2 Clean Induced draft Fan Proving Switch sensing line which is small rubber hose from switch to flue also clean the barbed ends
