Question about Goodman GDS80904BNA Open Flame Heater

Goodman GMP075-3 ignition problem

When I turn on the power, the inducer comes on, the control board clicks, the ignitor bar glows, the board clicks again, and the ignitor bar stops glowing. It seems like the gas valve isn't opening to allow combustion of any kind. I've replaced 1 rollout switch, the flame sensor and the control board. What should I do next? Replace the limit control switch and the pressure switch? How often do gas valves go bad? Could it be that the gas valve has stopped working?

I have the same exact ignition problem. My Goodman furnace is less than 3 years old.

    Try alleviating stress from the wires that all join the plug into the main control board. The weight of the wires, pulling down on the connector gave me all kinds of failed igntion problems. Once I alleviated the stress on the connector by supporting the wires via tyraps or a wire holding the weight up off the board, my problem went away. If after doing this, problems are still evident, than you may have another issue that needs to be addressed.

    Check the opening on the pressure switch make sure where the tubing connects to the inducer housing their is no blockage.

Test while the unit is firing with a meter. you should have 24 volts going to gas valve. If you do and no gas is coming out, you have a bad gas valve. You will need a gas pressure test kit to install a new one correctly.

OK, if the furnace is not lighting for even a few seconds, you have either a bad gas valve, bad wire, bad control module or no gas. The pressure switch is not the issue. Check all wires to the gas valve and look for 24 volts across them when the ignitor glows and you hear the click. Then test for 24 volts to ground. It could be a bad ground wire.

I have a goodman furnace with a solid red light. Says normal operation, but ignitor does not light. Unplugged ignitor and still solid light. Could it be the circuit board or something else? Blower


Usually you can visually inspect the igniter, looking for any cracks or breaks in the element. The best way to check it is with a volt meter to see if your getting the 120v to the plug itself, putting your leads in each of the prongs on the plug. If you are not getting the voltage, it's usually the board. Make sure all connections are tight. The heating sequence will be: 1. Inducer motor starts 2. You will hear a click from the board, it telling the igniter to light. It should start to glow. 3. Next click will be the gas valve opening and flames on. 4. Blower motor starts. Hope this helps!

Furnace starts up blower starts..nothing ignites...then shuts down. repeats and doesnt stop...sanded igniter stick and nothing happend. flashes red once.


Do you see the actual ignitor glow? You must be saying that you sanded the sensor. The ignitor, after the little inducer fan comes on will begin to glow a bright orange until the burner lights. If the ignitor is broken, you will NOT see a glow, and you may smell a faint smell of gas.

Furnace was working fine and just stopped working...it reacts to raising the thermostat but doesnt actually flame on


This is probably a ignitor.


1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks.Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. Please see "limits, rollout switches & furnace control boards" further down on this page. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor. If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.
Please leave feedback... Thanks...

need to go to furnace and watch it...if your hearing a hum the enducer draft motor may have failed...it should start first if there is no fault codes...reset unit by unplugging furnace or in some cases turning power switch off...turn thermostat on heat and watch unit ..the small enducer draft motor should start first the a ignitor glows and the should light...goodman units have a control board with a light on control board when it fails should flash a code and on the door or inside on lable should give you what that code is...hope this helps good luck

The Goodman Heater was installed in 2004. Thermostat set at 75F, the fan that blows CO2 out was on for about 1 minute, then I could hear the sound of the gas blowing into the furnace, but the ignitor...


Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad ignitor what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor. If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

Goodman gmnt060 3b doesn't light


check for 24vac between wires on gas valve about 5-10 seconds after ignitor starts to glow. If ignitor does not glow, check for 120 vac to ignitor after inducer goes on.
First...sequence of operation..power to W, inducer motor gets 120v and starts, 10-15 seconds later, ignitor gets 120v and glows, 5-10 seconds, gas valve gets 24v and opens, after 3-4 seconds the flame sensor approves flame and unit stays on. If this is not happening, it has to be in this sequence. Which ever is not happening and you do have voltage to that component, that component is bad. If you are getting a error code on board after it tries to light, pay attention to the code. if a 1 lock out code, that just means it tried 3 times and did not recognize a flame.

Won't srtart


Check at the gas valve to see if you are getting power to the terminals after you hear the click shortly before the ignitor stops. If no voltage ...replace the board.
Sequence is

induction fan on, if pressure switch is reading ok condition---->

Ignitor is powered for up to 20 seconds (depends on model) ----->

Gas valve is energized ----> if flame is present everything just works away, if no flame in 3 seconds sequence starts over for set number of tries or continuously (again depending on the model)

Hope this helps

if 23/27 volts is present at gas valve then replace valve but bad valve is not very common usually, its the board.

Ignitor wouldn't ignite, bought a new one, still doesn't work.


The relay on the control board, plugged air intake or exhaust, bad inducer as well as a few other things. Is it giving you any error code?

DO you see a red/orange glow? if you do the ignitor works, if not could be ignitor, or a pressure issue " once the inducer motor comes on you should hear a click than see a redish glow, if you dont than it is a pressure issue. way to check this is to pull the rubber hose off the switch and lightly **** on it while the unti tries to start if it comes on than something is stopping the switch from closing.I.E. bird in inducer motor or just a bad switch.
