Furnace takes too long to ignite.

Our AirQuest furnace takes forever to light. It now takes 1 hour for it to ignite. This has never taken more than a few minutes. I don't know that's something I can fix or if I need to call someone. It's an upright, not horizontal. LP gas.

    Plenty of gas in the tank?
    If you turn the tstat up to 80 does this still happen?
    During this hour what sounds does the furnace make, if any?

    Plenty of gas, I usually turn tstat to 78. It does make a constant sound and in an hour it finally kicks in and heats fine.

    Buzzing or clicking sound? Are you handy with a voltmeter.
