Close any supply registers? Cover up any return registers lately? Do anything to the furnace lately that would have changed the fan speed? Do you have a zoning system with multiple theremostats? Do you have central air conditioning and has the coil been checked to see if it's dirty?

Usually with a 33 code either your limit is triggering or a roll out switch is.
It can be because these controls are faulty or because they are doing there designed job. You need to meter each one to find out which one is opening and stopping your current.
Let us know what you find.

Resets usually only apply to roll out switches. Is this control situated near the burners?

As How said, sounds like a roll out is tripping, or a blocked flue switch, not your high limit. So problem could be a bad or clogged heat exchanger, or a clogged/restricted flue.

respond to "how". yes this limit switch is on top of metal box where burners are. not directly ontop of burners but back a littile by intake side of burners. little round brownish switch with reset button on top of it. push reset on switch and furnace will light again.

my manual calls it a rollout switch. I work on motorhomes and the switch is very familaer as "limit" that's what the rv world calls it on furnaces and waterheaters

That's a roll out switch to protect against flame & heat not being drawn properly through the furnace.

Either the switch is faulty or you have a situation where the furnace is over gassed, the exchanger is partially obstructed or a cracked exchanger pushing flames towards the exchanger opening.

If you have other roll out switches on the same circuit, you can swap them if they have the same listed heat rating. If you then still get tripping in the same location as the old one, you have other problems to check out. If the roll out switch that was tripping before, keeps tripping in the new location, it's probably a faulty roll out switch that needs to be replaced.

Check your hat exchanger. Roll outs only get weak, if they have been running at temps close to their trip setting. And that only happens when there is a problem.

had someone look at the heater and he says its the inducer or exchanger. says the exhaust is weak and not pushing enough air thru to keep burner from overheating. 700 bucks for inducer and or exchanger at 1600 bucks!!! sound correct? isn't it summer yet!!!!!!!!!

He should have been able to determine which it is. Would hate to pay for one and it be the other that was the problem.
