2007 Fleetwood Heater Problem

I turned on the heater and it run for about 15 minutes with heat and then began to blow cool air. Adjusted thermostat and on/off switch, only will blow cool air and no heat.
Any suggestions on how to trouble shoot? Propane tank is full and stove works fine.

T-stat set to HEAT'
Temp set higher then room temp
Furnace fan comes on.......runs to 'purge' combustion chamber of any raw fuel
Blower circuit/time delay relay (Depends) makes up ....power goes to 'sail switch' to high limit switch then circuit board.
DC sent to gas valve and spark electrode ......no flame/circuit borad shuts down gas valve


So is the spark electrode firing CLICK CLICK CLICK??

No spark...then could be blower circuit/time delay relay, could be circuit board, could be sail switch could be etc

Brand/model of furnace ????

Does your water heater run on propane? I have had propane heat problems once or twice and my solution is to get the oven, propane stove,water heater, and fridge all running on propane first then try the furnace. It is very seldom but sometimes multiple starts are required.

I might also check the furnace air inlets to make sure they are open and no bees or other things are in there.

And doubling down with Old Biscuit recheck the obvious things like the breaker, thermo settings, and position of the switch. I just screwed up both both those things on a outing last weekend. I went through a long troubleshooting process only to find that the thermo was set too high and not calling for cooling.

Thanks for the suggestions, I need to confirm the Make/Model of furnace.
Obvious things I have confirmed, thermostat, breaker/propane on/ heater switch on/etc. Oddly enough I am also having a problem with propane water heater. The water heater will only run for a few minutes and then shuts down. Water heater is Atwood 6 gal propane electric start only. Gas stove and oven work fine..

Cannot hear any clicks to confirm if pilot is lighting burner, I assume not since not heat from vents. Puzzling because it did work the previous day.

Question: I have a Fleetwood Bounder 34j. There is a button on the fridge that say auto and gas. I have had it on auto for two weeks while visiting a friend for two weeks. Fridge runs great. My question is: when I unplug to hit the road, does the fridge switch to gas automatically? Given the gas is turned on? Do I have to change the buttons on the fridge? Or does the generator have to be running? I would like to know how to run down the road and have the fridge stay running.
Thx in advance,
Laurie

In AUTO the frig will first look for electricity if non present then it will automatically switch to gas. Once electricity is detected, the frig will automatically switch off gas and turn on electric side of the frig.

Do a search on this site for your problem and there are many you tube videos on this topic. Also after a few failed attempts the furnance will go in safe mode and no long try to light...No clicking means no power to the circuit board or bad piezo ignition.
