No heat from furnace

The furnace did work when I checked it a few months ago. Right now, the sequence of events is:

- switch on using the spst switch on side of thermostat
- after about 30 seconds, the fan comes on
- fan continues to run, but there is no evidence of ignition, even after several minutes.

I checked the igniter, and the gap is not burned (compared with a spare I have), and there is sufficient propane (gauge on the regulator shows green and my blue-flame heater works).

I'm not sure exactly where the sail switch is, but I suspect that it may be the problem; or it could be the module board. Given that the temperature is dropping down below freezing, I'd like to get the furnace working ASAP - I head south in 2 weeks.

It was a bent bracket for the sail switch.
