Question about Goodman GDS80904BNA Open Flame Heater

2 Answers

Ignition failure after three attempts then sits for an hour.

My Goodman furnace is less than 3 years old. Occasionally, not always, but now with increased frequency, My furnace will fail ignition and go into the one hour sit and reset mode. The exhaust fan comes on, ignition stick starts glowing, I here a click, then the glow stick goes out. The furnace will not fire. After three attempts, it goes into lockout state for one hour. There is no obstruction in the exhaust stack, and I have a 6" air inlet duct that stops 18" off the floor bringing in fresh air from the attic air space into the furnace room. The attic air is cool, and the inlet pipe is relatively near a gable vent to bring in outside combustible air. The inlet duct is approximately 30" from furnace. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I have the same issue.  How much would a gas valve cost approximately. anyone know -  Angie

    problem turns out to be a bad connection on the main plug into the circuit control board. You need to alleviate stress off the plug by the weight of the wires, in order for everything to fire good.

    Do you have good gas pressure up to, or any pressure to the inlet side of your gas valve?

If your igniter comes on but no ignition, that eliminates the possibility of a bad or clogged pressure switch, high limit or flame rollout switch. Sounds to me like you have a control board, or a gas valve going bad. Could even be some loose, corroded, or faulty wiring. Before the igniter comes on the furnace does a self diagnostics to ensure everything is working, or the furnace will not make it to the igniter sequence. Inducer motor, pressure switch/s, limit controls are closed…then comes on the ignitier, gas valve opens, pilot runners and burners ignite, flame sensor detects the flame, blower comes on and all operations are working.

Hope this helps

Furnace will not ignite.


I think you are talking about draft induction pressure switch operation. Make sure the metal orifice located on the draft induction blower is clear. To check, remove the rubber tubing end at the pressure switch and blow into the tubing. It should be easy to blow through it. If it is plugged, remove the tubing from the blower orfice and use a paperclip, inserting it into the orfice to clear the opening. After repairing, and all is hooked up, retry the furnace start up procedure. If the code comes up again, replace the pressure switch.

I have had to replace the hot surface ignitor every year (its 4 years old and I have replaced the hot surface ignitor 3 times) on my furnace--is this a problem with all these furnaces or did I get a lemon?


I would check the grounding from the circuit board to cabinet, the ground coming in to the power of the furnace as well as the ground lug in your panel box. These furnaces are polarity specific and the wrong polarity or a loose ground will effect the longevity of the ignitor. Always buy a spare.

I have a 15 year old Goodman GMP075-3. The unit will not remain on more than 10 seconds. The igniter is new, the flame sensor has been cleaned with steel wool, I checked and re-seeded all wire...


since your getting ignition it sounds like it is shutting off due to airflow
you may want to drop the fan and check the coils above it
and the coils in the pelum with out proer air flow these units shut down at 180 degrees will cycle when cooled again
since your getting ignition your inducer seems to be fine

Main Fan won't turn off even with thermostat removed. Burner not


There is a chart with the wiring diagram and othere charts that will tell you what the 6 blinks are for. That should tell you what is wrong and what part you need. Sounds to me like the board has an issue or the gas valve is locked out.
