Hello, does flame appear for even a few seconds before it stops and blinks 3 times? If so, the problem is most likely with the flame sensor rod, simply cleaning it often solves the problem.
If no flame ever appears the problem is either a bad gas valve (5% chance) or a bad glow plate type igniter (90%)..
Let me know, we can go from there.
