After opening the case (the most difficult part of the job), tested the fuse (good) next in line on the power lead was the "flame sensor". With my ohmmeter it read open. The schematic noted that it opens at 212 degrees and closes at 32. Put it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes while I ordered a replacement. Upon rechecking, it had reset. Reinstalled it and everything works fine. I did receive the new one and it's on the shelf, just in case.
