This customer had a hot surface ignitor that was badly worn and needed replacement. These ignitors are found on most modern furnaces and are used to light the gas flames upon start-up. Under normal conditions, a hot surface ignitor will last about three to five years. During that time, the ignitors will eventually crack and need to be replaced.
