Bryant +80 won't light


I have a Bryant +80 furnace that has worked flawlessly for years not it just won't light. When turned on, the blower comes on for about a minute the the exhaust blower will come on for a few seconds then the electronic lighter will glow 3 times but never lights. Valve is open to furnace. I have the same furnace in another house that I just turned on after 2 years and it fired up immediately. one thing I noticed was the other furnace clicked when the ignitor started glowing, mine is not "clicking" when ignitor glows. What should I do?

take the hose off the end connected to the vent motor. That connection will sometimes stop up . take a small pin, etc, & make sure that hole isn't stopped up at the vent motor. Check light on the board & count the blinks if it's got a code look on the back of the blower panel or the owners manual

ok, the PS seems to be working because I would take the hose on and off and hear it clicking. Also the ignitor would go on and off with the hose going on and off. It seems like there is no gas getting to the ignitor?
