Hello, that was the flame sensor rod that he cleaned with steel wool. If the pilot light or main burner fires for a few seconds then goes out.. cleaning the flame sensor rod will generally solve the problem.

Tell me if that is that case or not. IF not, tell me if you can hear the small inducer fan start when there is a call for heat.

We can go from there.

We cleaned the igniters and still no fire! We can hear the inducer fan kick on!
Appliance Technician: Phil, Shop owner replied 5 months ago

Thanks,

In that case the printed circuit board is likely the problem.... we can test it for micro cracks by warming it up with a hair drier to 130F...if anything changes, such as the furnace will no longer fire, or the furnace runs longer now... the board is bad. and needs to be replaced.

We can go from there until we get this sorted out
