GMT 115-5B wont ignite

I have a 4yr old GMT 115-5b unit that wont ignite. Fan comes on, gas flows and then it shuts down because it isnt igniting. Then it cycles again and does the same thing over and over. I have done the reset process as described on the cover, to turn the switch to off, wait 5 min and then turn it back to on.

Couple things without more info is little hard,,,first not familliar with this paticular model but I believe it has a glo igniter,,which will be located next to the burners,,should be one or two scres holding it in,if this is not glowing than u need to pulll it out and look for a crack in it if its cracked u need to replace. If this is electronic ignition will have a metal spark ignition,,the glow ignitor will be ceramic by the way,,also if u pull out the glow ignitor do not touch the element with your hands while inspecting or replacing for the oil on your hands will cause it to fail sooner. sorry back to the metal spark ignition if it is not sparking than chances are u have a problem with the combustion fan motor shutting down the gas valve before it lights. I just posted on a goodman about the fan motor and the two types and how to fix. good luck.

System wont ignite. chgd filter & batteries in thermostat


Does the igniter get hot? If it does, then there is a problem with the gas control, that is, the gas won't come on for some reason. Generally, the gas won't come on if the igniter fails (for safety reasons), so are you sure there is gas flowing? You would hear the cycle start, that is the lighter, and even air flow, but if the gas doesn't come on during that time, the system shuts down in a few seconds.

Main burners in my old utility gas heater will not ignite


A common problem with these are the safety limit switch trips, either because the fan did not come on and over heated the unit, or the unit got shut off while in heat mode, causing the switch to trip. These are usually located around the top/side of the unit heater behind a small access panel. It should be resettable by pushing in the small button in between the two connections. Hope this helps!

Rinnai gas log heater (royale) keeps cutting out. now it wont stay on at all. the ignition is fine, the gas flow seems fine and the fan works fine. we vacuum the dust out regularly


When you say "it won't stay on at all." Do you mean the burner and the pilot flame shut off together or does the pilot remain lit? Is the unit showing any Fault Codes on the LCD display?

Furnace comes on Lo but no shift to High. Fan does not come on.


There will be a separate pressure switch for hi fire, make sure all hoses are connected and free of moisture and debris. You can temporally jump the switch once the inducer fan speeds up, not before. If the unit fires on high, you have a pressure switch issue. If the fan does not speed up, you may have a bad relay on the control board. If the unit is just being put into winter service, it may have a cob web restricting gas flow to the burner. You will need to check the air inlet as well as the exhaust pipe for restriction. Check on the wiring diagram to make sure that the DIP switches are in the proper position, you never know. Hope this helps.

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

Goodman gmnt100-4b wont ignite


listen for the gas valve to click on,,,if you do not hear it clicking on u could have bad gas valve,,,if it is smart valve which was around about 4 years ago they had major troubles and most where dead on startup. if it is clicking on than you might have something in the pilot tube or moisture in the valve,,try banging on the valve some ,,sometimes that will break it up and let it flow past if do right after it clicks in..might have to pull the pilot tube and blow out,,,sorry just dont have enough info at moment for lock down diagnoses,,good luck
