The control probably ain't gettin ignition confirmation. Tell your friend to remove the ignitor sensor and clean it with a dry brillo pad. Reinstall and retry it.

how old is this furnace? it could have a honeywell smart valve ignition control system, which is a bit more complicated.

I agree with applianceman1800. He Throws around that " sand your flame sensor" alot , but in this case he seems to be right. The symptoms do indicate the board was sensing " flame failure" .
