Question Goodman furnace problems

Hello. I have a home with a Goodman gas furnance. Pilot light is lit. Once you increase the temperature on the thermostat, it attempts to start. But, it shuts itself off in a couple of minutes. The Fan starts when prompted manually through the thermostat. But, it never blows heat when prompted.

I've changed the themostat. But, it didn't fix the problems. I was advised to "reset" the furnace, but am unable to locate the reset button.

Any suggestions?

On some Goodman's,turning the main 120 volt power source off, then back on will reset it. May have an on/off switch at the furnace or possibly the breaker will have to be turned off and on.

Unhappy Yes, the burners light

Once you adjust the temperature, the main burners come on. I get tricked every time in believing that it'll work. But after a few minutes, it shuts off and the burners go out.

When you installed the new thermostat, assuming it has a heat anticipator, did you set it to match the furnace requirements. Also, have you tried cleaning the flame sensor?
