One problem that can occur with the furnace is an issue with the pilot light. This light should blue and not yellow. If the flame is yellow, faint, or irregular, it is a sign that the burner is dirty. It could also mean that the burner is clogged or has a faulty ignition. If the furnace cycles for a short amount of time and then turns off, it could be caused by a few problems. Frequent cycling can be due to bad thermostat settings, a thermostat that has worn out, or if there is poor airflow through the furnace.
