It is difficult to tell by the description but I suggest you recheck   ALL  the connectors for  all the thermostats,  flame sensor, and the start switch. I am referring to the push on type connectors and the wires themselves.   When it fails to start will it restart properly after several minutes ?  You should also consider a temporary bypass  of the various componenets, one at a time  to verify.
