furnace problem


when the furnace first goes on the pilot lights, then the burners light and then there are a few clicks, one after the other, and then the flame goes out. when the flame does stay on long enough for the blower to start it only stays on for about 5 minutes then the blower goes off with the burners still on then after about a minute the fan comes back on then it starts again.

Not too familiar with them. The ICP Comfortmakers yes. Post some pics of the burners, gas valve. At 20 yrs old it may have a bad ignition module/circuit board. The old ICP KUGs etc were notorious for cracked heat exchangers. I would budget for a new furnace soon.
