Hi my name is Robert.....

IS the fan coming on for the furnace? IF the fan is coming ON can you hear the electrode trying to spark??? Really important to know if it is sparking, you should hear a click from the gas solenoid valve and at the same time it should start sparking....

Also if you have the make and model of the furnace it would be helpful. You can respond as much as needed.....
