Furnace light going off

I came home this afternoon and noticed that the furnace wasn't lit. I turned the power off and on then the burners lit up, but went off after a min. It tired to re-light a few times then stopped. Any idea what is causing this?

Post the brand name and model # and serial # which should be inside the front door. Some pics with the 2 doors off will help.

Does this unit have a diagnostic board on it? Is it giving a code?
Is the air filter clean? Blower running? What fuel? Are any safety's opening?
Also need the furnace info.

We had the same problem. Ours runs on kerosene. The tank is located outside. The non pros installed the tank so it was level. It should be tilted so water sinks to lowest point (away from the filter). But since it was level the water ran into the filter and frozened up quite nicely. Had to chisel out the ice and replace the filter. Hair dryer worked to de-thaw the small line between tank and filter.

Also correctly tilt of tank by using a car floor jack and 2x4
