Just swap it out....pretty simple but do NOT touch the new ignitor.Only touch the ceramic part of it.Oil from your skin will shorten its life.

Lighting pilot on Ruud 80 plus furnace?


Hi, There is no pilot and the flame is lit by a hot surface ignitor... The hot surface ignitors go bad frequently...you probably need to replace that...

Here is a tip that will help you try to figure out why your furnace is notworking.

Why heater coils glow?


It sounds like you're describing one of two things. The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace, or the resistive heat strips in an electric furnace.

The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace lights the burners. This ignitor in modern furnaces serves the same purpose as the standing pilot flame did in older furnaces. It provides the required heat to ignite the gas at the burners. Without an ignition source, a gas-fired furnace cannot provide heat. When the ignitor is activated it will glow bright orange or yellow.

The resistive heat strips in an electric furnace actually provide the heat to a home or building. When the furnace turns on, the heat strips are activated and usually glow orange when they reach peak temperature. In almost all cases, the heat strips are not easily seen or accessed without removing covers or panels inside the furnace.

Ten yr old Goodman residential furnace won't light even though hot surface ignitor glows red for 1 or 2 seconds.


Make sure you have gas on. Tap on the valve as the ignitor glows. The valve may just be stuck. If not- I'm thinking the funace needs a new ignition module.

Hi, I have a Goodman furnace model GKS91155DXAD. The blower stays on. After turning power off for a few minutes then back on, the draft blower comes on for a few seconds then goes out but the blower...


I would check hot surface ignitor or spark ignitor to make sure they are working. If not then replace them and try again.If ignitor does not come on control board will shut down, try to restart usually try 4-5 times then lock. out. Generally for a preset time then try again. If it has tried to start to many times and failed it will lockout until power is shut off and it can reset. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Amana furnace ignitor does not turn on


It is most likely your hot surface ignitor. See if it glows when you first turn the furnace on and let me know.

My furnace fires up and runs for about 30 seconds,, then the gas shuts off


First we need to understand what is probably happening by understanding how this unit works.
A flame safety senses a flame and if one is not present it shuts off the gas supply. This safety is incorporated to make sure that if the flame goes out for any reason, it doesn't continue to dump gas into the furnace. Because I have no idea what type of sensors this unit uses, can you explain to me what kind of ignitor it has? See if it has a spark, or a hot surface ignitor. The hot surface ignitor will glow very bright white but looks like it's made of ceramic.
