Heater won't stay lit.

My heater/furnace problem was solved this morning by a service guy that has a mobile service and comes highly recommended in my area. FWIW, I thought I would post symptoms and solution for others who may have similar problem.

The furnace would not stay lit. By that, I mean it would fire for maybe 5-10 seconds sputter and then go out and the fan will keep running. Then it would fire again and maybe stay lit for as much as a minute then go out. The cycle would keep repeating without throwing any code leds.

Service guy went thru the controls and finally after half hour found wood chips in the blower causing intermittent combustion air. He cleaned those out and now is running fine. Kinda makes you wonder how wood chips would get into the blower.
I had the same problem last week. We were at KQ Campground in Julian, California when the problem started. That day and night the heater would not stay lit and the same for the next day. Day three, the heater came on and has worked fine since. I hope the problem solved itself. It worked fine the year before.
