LUXAIRE gas furnace shutting off
 
The thermostat has to be reset to make it work again. This usually happens about twice a week.

I'm thinking it may be the ignition module or the flame sensor. Any ideas?

Thanks!

You first need to see what the furnace is doing when it locks out
Is it cycling 3 times then locking out? Flame sensor
Or running for a while and shutting off could be module, weak ignitor

the furnace should have a small plastic window on the bottom panel of the furnace the next time it locks out you should check if it has a flashing light and count the number of times it flashs this is a self diognostic and the codes will be listed in your owners manuel. If this is a 90 + hi-efficiency furnace you shoul have a tee installed in the horizontal line close to the furnace with a looped plastic hose attached to it to catch excessive condensate from comming back down the pipe and causing look-outs to happen hope this helps
if you need more info let me know

My unit has been decent, once luxaire addressed the ignitor issue, the way they had the other ceramic ignitor positioned, if a spider or anything came in contact it burned out, i was going through one ignitor a year, They made a design change a couple years ago, and i havent had to change one since.
