after 30 seconds of the venter motor running check for 120v at the ignitor plug. if not present. could have a stuck end switch, pressure switch, etc

ignitor not lighting if i am reading right. this could be the ignitor or possibly the pressure switch not closing when the induced draft motor comes on. it will take a voltmeter to determine which. there are other possibilities that a tech can determine.

you may want to find another 'professional' for the next service call.
