I thought I'd pass this on for others who may be taking their TCs out of Winter mothballs. My furnace would start up but not keep running. Sure, it would the normal run for a bit without the furnace igniting. I did some online research and found that Suburban furnaces can have sealed burners. I really didn't want to take out the furnace to clean the burner, and thought it might be a few hundred dollar fix and quite a bit of trouble to take it to a repair shop.
So, I asked myself how do you clean a burner? I came up with something to try even if it might not work. What's the best air source I have? My air compressor. So, I chucked in a connector with no attachment to blow straight air and fed it into the furnace exhaust tube. (The intake goes into the blower/fan.) I left it for a few seconds and then, I pulled it out. Had the DW start the furnace, presto, it works!
It's worked all weekend, so I'm going to pronounce it fixed for now.
BTW, I didn't see anything significant come out in big pieces. It could of been dust rust etc.

We were advised by a Lance Tech that it should be part of the annual service to do exactly what you did. So it's now part of our regular service program. Also a good idea to have screens over the furnace exhaust and hot water heater vent to keep the daubers and spiders out
