A few days ago my gas furnace started making this loud clicking noise that I could hear upstairs. It would click a couple times, then click a couple minutes later. Well last night I noticed that it pretty much just keeps clicking. Air is blowing, but it isn't hot. Is this some sort of pilot light, not lighting up because it makes a click something like pilot lights typically do when you ignite them? Any thoughts? Please tell me I don't need a new furnace. Thank you.---Jesse

Yeah, it has to be something with the ignition. I watched it yesterday. it will click several times and a flame with come out and then go out before it can light the heating unit. Sometimes it will light up, but often it goes out after a few seconds. So just call someone to come out and take a look at it? thanks---jesse

Your main gas valve is probably sticking. You probably just need a new valve assembly. Check for 24VAC across the valve when the pilot goes out. If it's there, the valve is sticking.
