Suburban Furnace ignitor.

I have an 03 keystone Everest 5th wheel with a suburban furnace. The problem started about a year ago with soot build up on the igniter. Went almost a year with no problems. Now in the last 2 weeks I've had to clean off soot 3 times because furnace wont ignite. Once I clean off soot it works fine. Getting tired of crawling in basement to do this. Any help and or ideas will be greatly appreciated.Thank you.

Have you checked the air intake for a wasp nest? It can block off the air and lead to over rich burn (soot).

I agree ,not having enough primary air mixing at the burner inlets ( because of a blockage :ie wasps) can cause incomplete combustion.
