have you had it serviced and cleaned since day 1?

I'd suggest to get some one in to clean it.. I want ot say it's the flame sensor.

well last year when i bought the house I had a service tech. come out becuase it was not working and he replaced a switch he said that the switch went out because the filter needed to be changed. but i don't think he cleaned any thing. what needs to be cleaned? and what is the flame sensor?

A flame sensor is a metal road that has a single wire to it.. The sensor is surounded by flame in the burner area. use the green scoure pad to clean nit.. Do not use sand paper
