Luxaire furnace fails to fire
 
Got a Luxaire(12 yrs old) that once in a while does not light4 times in a month). I tapped on the induction blower and it started. Friend who is in the business says it could be a pressure switch, as they are very sensitive. any thoughts?

Maybe the tubing coming from the ventor motor is too low.
sometimes water will get into the tube from the ventor blocking the pressure switch
Try cleaning the tubing
also if you tap on the ventor motor and it starts , it could mean that you have bad bearings
