Furnace Ignitor Arched?
 
I have had my glow plug go out before on my furnace and I have always been able to wait until the gas came out and I could light it manually. I came home the other day and noticed the ignitor was in pieces and not working. my best guess would be that it had arched to some metal close by.

Now when it tries to light up it just shuts down and won't let gas out. I tried to install the old one to see if it would act like it did in the past but now it just clicks and then flashes on the computer board that soemthing is wrong.

Is there a reset switch I can flip or did I fry something? I'm going to pick up a working ignitor to see if it will start up again but I'm just thinking something bad has happened in the electrical part of the furnace.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

It probably seriously damaged the board when it shorted to ground. Sorry.

Thats what i've found out. Everything works but the relay for the heat. I was wondering if it is possible to replace those on the board or if it's just easier to go with a new one. The part number on the board is 642591B.
