Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to help answer your question(s). Please provide all the information I ask for since I'm not onsite. At the end of our dialog you will be asked to rate my service, but please wait until then and all your question(s) have been answered satisfactorily. If you are not satisfied, I'd appreciate it if you'd tell me why before leaving a negative rating and allow me to continue to work with you until we are able to both agree on an outcome to follow. Thanks for your business!

If ignitior is coming on, but no burners light, it will most likely be one of three things: no gas to furnace, a bad board, or a bad gas valve. Once you check gas to furnace and that's OK, next step would be to measure voltage at valve to see which of the two remaining ones it is.
