Helpl-Atwood Furnace 8525 won't ignite

Just recently noticed a problem with the furnace not firing up.

While now she won't fire at all just blower motor runs. I have checked the control board and get 2 flashes with a 5 sec. pause, which tells me that there is "Flame sensor Fault " I have done some reading and there is a possibility that the Sail switch maybe shot, which could be the case because I do not hear the ignition ticking at all .
Question. Do I need to pull the unit out to get at this switch and should I be looking for something else?
Has anyone else had a similar problem ?

Exclamation update on furnace problem solved

Update on my furnace problem see previous post, (had tech guy out today). It turns on to be the Electrode. What it was doing was shorting out through the insulator onto the frame holding it. Ordered a new electrode.

The symptoms are; the fan would run and I would hear the odd spark, but noticeably rarely. You should hear the electrode chattering, for about 15 seconds or until in fires up,hopefully. if not then you one of 18 different things that can go wrong.
See attached PDF.
