Furnace not lighting.. Hearting element is getting hot.. Electric starter rod was cleaned.. Sounds like it is getting gas, just not catching? Any hits before I call a tech out?

A couple of possible causes for this problem are a dirty or faulty flame sensor and a problem with the circuit board. The flame sensor can often be cleaned by the homeowner, although sometimes it can be brittle and break easily. A circuit board problem usually requires a heating contractor to repair it. If you'd like to find a contractor to take a look at your furnace, we can help you find one, here.
