Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a 2 year old Goodman GDS80703ANA furnace that has always had a problem starting. Sometimes it starts on the first attempt but other times it takes 2 or 3 attempts. This is what I see happening: The Induced Draft Blower starts and runs- the Igniter will glow for a few seconds and just as the igniter starts to stop glowing I hear the Gas Valve click and open but it is too late. On the next attempt or so, the Gas Valve will open sooner and burner will ignite. My question is: Is the Integrated Control Module the only thing that controls the timing of the Igniter and Gas Valve or is there a sensor that monitors the Igniter to call for the gas valve to open.

    Thanks for the response hilbuck29 ! If that is the case which I'm sure is, I wonder why the timing would fluctuate. I guess electronic circuits can do weird things.

    ive seen printed circuits reverse the order of operation to where it would open the main gass valve before the ignitor.That'll sure help ya lose your eyebrows.good luck,Dave

How do I troubleshoot a goodman 2 stage that always starts at high stage


It wouldn't be stuck if that's the case the valve would never shut off. Sometimes those 2 stage heat thermostats stats call for 2nd stage if the room temp drops more than 2 degrees. Easiest way to check is take the w2 wire off of the tstat and try a call for heat. If the furnace kicks on both 1& 2 stages then its either your wiring on the fan board or a dip switch setting. If it kicks on 1stage then it's your thermostat.

Hello there, I have a Goodman GMH951155DXAC furnace that I got in 2007. I have the following problem for the last 4 years: When the thermostat calls for heat the induced draft motor comes on and 30-40...


With furnace OFF ,Disconnect the top of the hose that leads to the
Bottom of Daft inducer Box, Now blow into it water will come out
of the drain hoses "condensation " this will shut the unit down if not drained. There must be a Trap on the side of the Furnace with water in it , to have positive presure to suck out condensation. This will fix problem. some installers forget to install this Trap that comes with Unit.....!!!! A little item
that will shut the whole system DOWN. :o)

We have a Goodman Furnace and Air Conditioner approx 7 years old. When I put the Cool on thermostat and lowered the temperature for the air conditioner to come on the furnace fan started but the outside...


Hi,
You are right. The outside unit starts quickly. The humming will either be the evaporator fan or the AC compressor itself. If you can reach into the evaporater fan with something narrow and stiff you may be able to see if the fan turns. Sorry for the trouble you are having.
One or the other is trying but unable to start, hence the humming.

My goodman gaspack has had two incidents of cracked heat exchangerS within 18 months apart. Could something be cAUSING THIS TO HAPPEN?


Things to watch for when your heat exchanger is cracking....
1.Always kee the filter clean
2.Make sure the return air vents are clean and clear of obstructions
3.Your furnace could be Oversized for your house thereby running too hot.
4.The furnace can be "Overfired" basically burniing more gas and running hotter than it's supposed to be
5.It's always best to have your furnace taking fresh air for combustion from outside...basically you should have 2 pipes on your furnace ..one for Air Intake and the other for Exhaust
6.Sometimes some furnaces have a Bad Design and are prone to failure...Some Goodman have "Rings" basically large rivets that pop...this was a bad design however all the suggestions above should help but may not eliminate your problem

WHEN THE HEATER COMES ON THE FAN STARTS INSTANTLY AND BLOWS COLD


Do you have a heat pump? If so this is normal. You are probably used to a gas furnace. There are heat pumps that do have a delay though. Look on the circuit board in the air handler. There may be a set of pins that say 0-30-60-90 yours may be at 0. Also some digital T-stats offer that function for delay off to get the extra heat or cold from the system. Find out what the model number of the air handler and call the Goodman supplier in your area to see if you have these options.
If you have a gas furnace and it's not delaying the blower there is definately something wrong.

Electric furnace won't shut off


It sounds like a bad or badly miswired T-stat

Electric furnace runs but won't shut off on heat setting


I would insist that Sears either have a Senior tech come out and fix it or return it to the state it was prior to them touching. Then call some one else. Have them involve the Goodman rep in your area.

Carrier Weathermaker gas 8000 will not ignite


Your hot surface igniter may be bad. It may be cracked which would prevent it from starting the burner flame.
