Hello my name is ***** ***** will be my pleasure to assist you. First thin to do is check your furnace filter to be sure it is clean and clear. Next look in the lower blower door peep hole to see if there I an led light that is flashing a code. There may be a peep hole in the lower blower door for you to look through to the circuit board which may have an led that is flashing a certain number of flashes.
Once you have cleaned the filter rest the power to the furnace and see if it will fire and stay running.
Does the ignitor glow that you can tell. If you look through the hole where the burners are the igniter should glow when trying to ignite. If you reset the power the inducer motor the small vent motor should come on then the ignitor should glow then the gas valve should click and the burners should ignite.
Ok then the igniter is probably the issue. It will be over in the right corner in front of the burners. There is a couple screws that hold it in place under the square burner box. it has two wires going to it that plug into a plug from the furnace board. If you take it out to inspect it be very careful as it is very fragile and try not to touch the elemnt tip with your fingers. It is probably broken already but if not try not to break it.
that looks like the gas valve.
the ignitor would be in front of the burners
yes you are right you will have to take the cover off with the glass hole in it.
make sure you take the 5/16 screws out of the front first
ok just making sure
yes that will be good. If you have a meter you can test the power to the igniter and ohm out the igniter itself.
phone discussions cost more but we can continue on here if you want
look for cracks in the black part of the igniter
do you have a meter to test it?
a long extension with a 5/16 bit usually works for me.
no the flame sensor has one wire the ignter has 2
you would have to buy one from a hvac supply house.
great let me know how you make out.
