    I have a Rheem furnace with 5 inshot burners in it. Sometimes only the burner on the far right comes on and after about 5 seconds the unit shuts down then the fan only runs. I have checked and cleaned the crossovers and aligned the burners and checked the gas pressures into valve 12"wc and out is 11"wc. can anyone help me, this is frustrating>

    How many volts do you have at the gas valve?

    Shut the furnace of and call an experienced service tech to test and diagnose the system. This can be very dangerous especially with LPG.

    Why did you set it up for 11"? (I realize it's LP) Did you read that in a manual somewhere? 'Cause it isnt anywhere in the manual for your furnace.
