With panel on the coils get hot and become intermittant with the panel off they stay cooler and keep working. Replace the coils.


...sure, why not..

BINGO!!!
Thanks a lot guys. It was the coils. I guess when I was checking temp out the vent and every time I started a load, it started cool and worked fine. I tried a load and after a while took the front panel off and the ignitor was just going off. Watched it a while and the ignitor came on again without the gas kicking in. Made me feel a lot better buying the coils! I didn't want to just keep replacing parts. My wife thinks I'm a genius - made some points! Anyhow, thanks again for taking time to think this thru for me. In times like these, it's appreciated very much!
