Hello, first step is to clean its flame sensor rod, its removable, and pokes into the fire box just about 1 inch above the burners, use a pot scrubber pad.

click here for some photos

.

If that fails

Take close up, exceedingly well focused photo's of the wiring diagram glued inside the furnace/air handler door, and the printed circuit board mounted on the blower, , that shows where the thermostat wires connect, and I will mark them up with trouble shooting instructions.

Use the 'add files' link next to your send button to get the photo(s) to me.

.

We can go from there with training, coaching and diagnosis.... without a time limit, In depth with as much detail as needed .

When we finally get the situation solved, please select the 'finish and rate your expert link' near the top of your page and click on it.
