I believe an inspection of the heat exchanger and a good cleaning should be done yearly.That being said,it does not harm your furnace to be shut down.

Furnace GMS9/GCS9 Cycles twice and then fires up most of the time and then it won't fire and shuts down. To restart it We have to shut the 110/115 power off for a few seconds and turn it back on and it...


Furnace ignition controls will attempt to light the furnace 3 times with several minutes delay between each attempt. If it fails to light or the ignition module fails to detect it lit after the 3 tries, the module will lock out and require a "Hard Reset" to try again. It is a common feature in nearly all newer furnaces intended to let you know you have a serious problem. You should call a service technician for this because there are a number of things that may be causing this flame failure. Please grade my answer on how much I have helped you. Thank you for the opportunity. Roger

The heater keeps turning its self off after a few hours


Check to see if filter is plugged? The furnace will shut itself off if filter plugged. Replace filter with one recommened for unit. How long has it been since you had your furnace checked and cleaned? it should be done on an anual basis to keep it running safely and at it's top efficiency.

Flame sensor dirty


Sandpaper lightly scrubbed over the sensor tip to remove any contamination.

Sometimes cleaning is not enough and the sensor must be replaced.

Ruud heater will not light consistently


Your furnace is going into a lockout condition, cycling the power resets the circuit board and it starts over. I will need to know approximate age and model of your furnace, it sounds like you have need to clean the flame sensor rod. However i need to know what i am working with.

Honeywell Gas Furnace


A Make and Model number of the furnace not the thermostat will help but I can walk you thru the operation of a typical furnace. It sounds to me that the burners are igniting properly but the flame sensor is not sensing the flame and shutting down the system. You will need to find the sensor and clean it and check the wire from it to the control board. Typically, the flame sensor is found at one side or the other of the burner box. It is a small probe that the flame hits. Depending upon your model it may have a small wire attached to it leading back to the control. Or it may be part of your auto-pilot assembly. ? At any rate, you will need to get to it and very delicately brush it off. Then inspect the flame channel. This is a trough area where the flame travels to ignite all burners. Over time, they tend to fill with rust and debris. Take a small screwdriver and run the blade down the trough. Inspect the wire that goes from the flame sensor to the control board. Make sure it is not frayed or broken or shorting out and that the connection at the board is good.

Beyond that, it's time for a technician to come.

Let us know the Make and Model of the furnace (found inside the furnace cabinet) and maybe we can help you further.
