    Rick,

    We really appreciate your question. I am going to research this a bit and I will post something here as soon as I have a suggestion as to what you might do next. As an initial thought, your furnace has a solenoid in it that opens and closes to let the gas flow. Have you checked that? It is possible that this important part might have gone bad, or is not getting electricity. When you say it wont fire, is it trying to? Can you hear noise of it attempting to ignite?

    Best regards.

    Hey Rick,
    I been doing a bit of research and the one think I keep seeing involves the possibility of a faulty “sail switch”. If you look that up on line, it indicates that this switch senses the flow of air and if their is insufficient flow it will prevent the furnace from igniting. The fan will still blow but no heat. There are some great videos that show you how to trouble shoot it. You might just want to replace it as the next step in eliminating things. They are pretty inexpensive. Here is a link. Click here

    Let me know.
    best regards,
