I have a Janitrol forced hot air system. I went to turn it on for the first time this year and it lights,burns for 5 seconds then goes out repeats this cycle 2 or 3 times then quits till you turn off the power and then turn it back on, but remains the same. Can anyone help me with this problem?

Might be able to help, but need to know if you are talking about the main burner or the pilot????

After taking a closer look it's during the ignitor phase when the shut down happens, just before the burners ignite and the blower starts.

I took the electronic ignition sensor off and cleaned it. Took my electric leaf blower and blew all the dust out thinking this would help. The furnace continue to do the same thing. So I looked around the unit and notice four coin size, I'm assuming electronic switches that have small buttons on them, so I pressed all four button. I'm thinking they are some type of reset mechanism. I turn the power back on and the furnace fires up. It was working fine the past few days and now the problem have returned. I tried the same process but I'm having the same problem. Do anyone have any other ideas? Did I do something wrong or am I missing something?

See if you can inspect the flue for any obstruction. Remove the cap if you can and the pipe going to the furnace. Look down and make sure you see a clear path. Make sure your filter is clean, etc.
