York Furnace flame stays on only 5 seconds
 
We have a York Diamond 80 model pidub12nob001a. The jets fire up for only 5 seconds and then turn off. The blower then runs. I have checked the filter and it is ok any suggestions?

Thank you!

Seems to be working now
 
I powered it down for 15 minutes and dusted out the furnace. It seems to working now. ANy suggestions regarding what could have caused this? What I may need to have done to the furnace?

Thank you for your replies in advance!:)

the problem is easy to fix and will occur again. however, what needs to be done is not clear to me as i am not in front of the furnace. it could range from a simple cleaning to an expansive repair of several hundred dollars.

Hi PatJo

It sounds like the problem you originally had was a dirty flame sensor or a burner was not igniting and causing lockout. I would definately reccomend having the furnace serviced, especially if it has been several years since it was serviced.

Good luck
Rusty

dusting the furnace would not really 'clean' the flame sensor unless patjo actually cleaned it, but that would appear to be the problem, unless the sensor and or lead is bad, the ground may be getting weak and or the IFC going out, hard to tell
