I think i have a dirty heat sensor but i cant unscrew it to clean it
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

if it were dirty sensor...then the ignitor would glow, gas light....and go off in 3 seconds.

You can clean the sensor by reaching in and cleaning...in case you cannot remove.
