Last year when we turned on our aire-flo furnace the fan ran

Customer Question

Last year when we turned on our aire-flo furnace the fan ran but it wouldn't fire up. We have the same issue this year. A local repairman was out last year and told my wife it needed water somewhere, but I don't know where or what he was talking about. Until last year we never had an issue.
JA: Did you check the furnace's filters?
Customer: yes
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If possible
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: It is on lpg

Check and see if any error codes are flashing on the control board in the furnace and look at the list to match it up. There should be a list on the panel you remove to get to the board.
