Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can

A 4 flash error is ignition failure. Given your description you probably have a bad igniter

Ya was thinking the same may have to see if i can find a new one .
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 11 months ago

You'll have to remove it to match it up to a new one. Once you have it out any flaw no matter how small is an indication of a failure. A little white powder is ok. I'd appreciate a favorable rating. The thread won't go away and I'll answer related follow up questions even after you rate me favorably
