gas furnace won't ignite

I have a GE model #BLU045E924B1 gas forced air furnace whose burners will not ignite. The pilot flame is lit, the unit has power (checked both the circuit breaker and power switch), thermostat is set to "Heat" and set above room temperature. Unit was checked and filter replaced in Oct. 2001. Any thoughts on why the burner won't ignite?

Thanks!

Hello Jeef. Welcome to our Heating and Cooling forum and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Read the recent postings within this forum. The questions already asked describe like or similarly related problem descriptions as your question.

These prior postings and any or all the replies offered within them contain almost all the required information needed pertaining to the many potential and or possible problems with the heating unit like your describing.

Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes and solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair proceedures and instructions, pictorials and schematics, which may be available online.

An excellent source for orginal replacement parts is your local retail appliance parts store. Appliance parts dealers test and carry replacement parts for all appliances. Parts dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

Retail parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be. Bring the make, model and serial numbers if you stop in at the store. The info will help to determine the ignition system and possible problem causes.

I have the same furnace and have the same problem. The pilot is lit, same situation otherwise. Did you ever figure out what the problem was?
