Fairley new furnace needs help


This is my first time here. Please help!
I am having a problem with my furnace, when I kick the heat up the Induced fan comes on, after 30 seconds the burner comes on then gos out again, after about 30 seconds it comes on again then gos out again, it will not stay lit long enough for the blower motor to come on. If anyone has any
suggestions it would be very much appreciated.

It sounds like a dirty or faulty flame sensor. You can try cleaning the sensor with steel wool to see if that corrects the problem. The sensor is usually a steel rod sitting in the flame of the last burner with a single wire going to it.

Yep, as cjett said it's usually the flame sensor when it does that.
