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 begins the process of starting up then 5 seconds later it turns off. It does this repeatedly, sometimes for like an hour then it works fine.


Easy fix. Furnace is not getting confirmation of ignition. Remove the flame sensor and clean it with sand paper. re-install it and retry as seen in this video:

I installed a new goodman unit this past spring. It seems to work ok to good in the day time but the tempature is warmer so we do not need as much heat. At night I know the thermostat is coming on. I...


Heating Mode (Goodman Service Manual)

· The furnace control checks for an open main limit (this
limit is normally closed). If the limit is open, the furnace
will remain inoperable until the limit is closed. During
an open limit the circulating air blower will be
energized. The status light will blink four (4) times.
· The room thermostat reacts to a demand for heat.

· The control will then check to insure that the vent
pressure switch is open. If, at this point, the vent
pressure switch is closed the control will blink two (2)
times and will remain inoperable until this situation is
corrected.

· The venter blower is energized.· The vent pressure switch will close when it detects a
pressure in excess of its setting. If the pressure switch
fails to close the status light will flash three (3) times.

The sequence cannot continue until the pressure switch
closes.

· After a pre-purge of about ten (10) seconds the electronic
ignition device will be energized.

· After a slight delay the gas valve will open.

· The burners will ignite and the flame sensor will detect
the presence of flame. The ignition device will
deenergize. If the sensor does not detect the burner
flame, the gas valve will close and the ignition cycle
will be repeated for a total of three attempts. If, after
the third attempt, the presence of flame is not detected,
the furnace will go into a lockout condition for one (1)
hour. It will then repeat the ignition cycle. This one (1)
hour lockout and retry will occur indefinitely.

· Thirty (30) seconds after the main valve is energized
the circulating air blower will be activated.

· The furnace will remain in operation until the demand
for heat is satisfied.

· Once the demand is satisfied the venter will shut off,
and the circulating air blower will shut off after the field
selectable time off is attained.

· The furnace will remain dormant until the next demand
for heat.

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'm considering installing a Goodman LP Gas Furnace:sizing? Ops?


Gerge, if you go to website www.energycodes.gov
you can do a heat load calc yourself. Basically, you figure out the sizes of walls, total area of glass. total doors to outside, ceiling area and types of building materials used. It is pretty easy and then you will know for sure. The contractor should be suppling you with one but if not use this, it is free!

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.

Look at the door of the unit for a explaination of the number of flashes of the light. This may get you started in the right direction.
