Is this a power vented system if so check the ventr motor . it must run first alowing the gravity swtch to make and send 24v to the gas valve- if its not a vented unit sounds likely you have a main valy or posibly a mercury or thermo couple problem. hope this helps.

Home furnace comfortmaker blowing cold air


Home owner's manual? Troubleshooting section. Gas or electric?
If gas, pilot light may be out, or other gas controls. Are you sure you have gas supply? Do you have other Gas appliances so you can check? Furnace needs power for controls, fan and thermostat. Are you sure you have electric power to the furnace? Does the thermostat have a fan switch? If so turn it on and see if the fan turns on. If it does not turn on you may have a circut breaker poped. or some other reason power to the furnace is not working.

Honeywell thermostat won't turn on


There could be a number of issues associated with this issue. #1 bad thermostat, #2 no low voltage from the furnace or air handler, #3 if gas furnace, no pilot(standing pilot units or bad ignition system). If you have a fan switch on the thermostat turn it to on and see if the blower comes on. I would also check to make sure the breaker is turned on. Over the years I have found many things that all have the end result you are seeing. I just named a few things you can try.

The 2 flashes on the screen and the furnace will not turn on. The 2 indicates the time frame program which is correct but why flashing? Owners manual does not address.


I had two flashes on a Honeywell 8670 continuous retry controller to my Burnham power vent natural gas furnace.In my furnace the two flashes meant the last attempt at starting failed and it was going to retry in 90 seconds.

In my case the furnace actually had two intermittent problems with similar codes. The first issue was the high voltage pilot light cable was also a combination flame sensor wire. The cable was supposed to clamp on to the pilot assembly like a spark plug wire.

When it was installed the clamping bits were too far apart and some fool decided since it wasn't sticking he would glue it on. This worked initially, but later the connection was only good enough to pass the high voltage not the low current DC signal back to the controller indicating the flame started successfully. Flames conduct a small amount of electricity due to ionization and the controller senses this.

I pinched the clamping bits together with some pliers. Then it fit tight and kept working.

Other reasons for the 2 flash code on my controller might be no gas or pilot light failure.

My other problem was a partially failed capacitor on my power vent motor caused the vent fan to run in reverse on say one in one hundred start attempts. Once it started running in reverse it wouldn't run forward without stopping it completely, which took several minutes of off time. The capacitor was available quickly and inexpensively from McMaster Carr.

Intertherm gas furnace in mobile home..igniter comes on then nothing tries to fire byrners but nothing


by igniter I assume you mean the thermocoupler. are you turning the control button to run after you light the pilot light? Normally when those furnaces quit it is the thermocoupler that has quit. Get a new one and leave it in the furnace compartment as a spare.

Intertherm furnace M1BG wont fire


Make sure the gas valve is turned to the ON position after you had it in PILOT position. Also check the thermostat low voltage wiring @ furnace...jumper the Red & White wires to bypass the thermostat temporarily. Make sure there is 24 volts on you low voltage circuit.

I have a sv9500m 2674 tha has a sticker that says it has been converted to L P gas. The ignitor lights the pilot and the fan comes on. The pilot stays lit and the main furnace fan comes on but the burner...


Hello,If you cleaned the flame sensor and it is in the pilot flame,Try adding a ground wire from the pilot assembly to any close screw to boost the (pilot on) signal.Also if the valve has been sitting for a while give a tap once during (pilot on) to make sure the diaphram is just not hung up.I would hate to replace the valve and still have the same problem.

Furnance will not heat


Check your voltage going into the gas valve. It should be 24-27 volts. If it is to low the gas valve will chatter. If the voltage is strong enough you have a bad gas valve.

Furnace gas pilot light keeps going out when windy outside


Honeywell makes an electronic ignition conversion kit. (White rodgers also has one but it uses a mercury switch which can be expense if it goes bad). A good service man can install the "Honeywell Y86 Universal Intermittent Pilot Retrofit Kit". This is a "complete" kit for converting a standing pilot system to electronic ignition. It includes a new gas valve, ignition cables with connectors. ignition module and a pilot assembly. It does not include pilot tubing (pilot tubing is cheap). This kit also comes equipped for either natural gas or propane. Your heating guys probably don't know about it because they are to young and not familiar with the old days. Or they just don't care and would rather sell you a furnace. I think that they just don't care. I live in Ohio I just opened up the "new" Johnstone Supply catalog. This part is "not" outdated its on page 450. Do not let these heating guys buffalo you into a new furnace. You are to smart for that! If you weren't you would have believed them and bought something you don't need. Instead of researching on the internet.
The bad news is this kit lists for $456. plus labor.
Good luck!
