That is usually a control board issue. Do you have the outside access panel over the furnace? If so, this is easy to get to. Open that up and it is on the far left hand side. The board just unplug so you can test it at the shop. If the board is bad you should be able to get a Dinosaur Electronics board for a replacement. That board number is ***** a as UIB-S board. Just a plug and play situation. Hope that gets you going. Please get back to me if you need more as all follow ups are included in our fee.
