2012 Flagstaff Micro Lite 21 FBRS History: Bought by Original owner in March 2012. Tried Furnace once and it worked fine. Not used again until I bought unit in Jan 2013. I tried furnace and it wouldn't blow or ignite. Was told to keep trying to see if it would eventually start (possibly needed to be worked and used some) Intermittantly began working, maybe 1 in 25 try's. When it worked, everything happened like it should have. Fan came on, igniter started then heat. shut off worked as it is supposed to. Igniter quit, fan blew for a few minutes.
Now, tonight I go out to try it again. I found that when I give the metal cabinet a slap, it all works as it should. Only occasionally will it start by the thermostat. Most times I have to turn on the thermostat and slap the metal housing. This works everytime.
My question is: What part would need this jarring to start it working. I have tried moving all the wires to no avail. There doesn't seem to be an "open circuit" in the wires (connections)
It is a Suburban Furnace
Any help will be appreciated.
