I'd start by taking the cover off the burner compartment of the furnace and locating the rating plate, which should be inside.

Get the model number off the rating plate and report it here.

Next, turn the thermostat down so that the furnace shuts off completely. Then have someone turn it up and observe the sequnce of events which happens as the furnace attempts to start. You might need to repeat that several times until you have grasped the details of what is happening.

Report that sequence of events here as well.
