Flame sensor

I have a furnace problem that i suspect to be a flame sensor issuse. I was wondering if there is a way to check to see if it is functioning correctly or a way to bypass it to make sure that is the problem before i go and hunt down some parts. Also the furnace is less than a year old what could make a flame sensor go bad that quickly?? Thanks

Flame sensors don't go bad,unless ceramic is cracked or otherwise damaged.. No way to bypass. Take microamp read. Have you cleaned it yet. if not use steel wool and clean lightly.
