Re: Amana Heate/Air
SOUNDS LIKE THE IGNITOR IS BAD OR NO GAS IS AVAILABLE.THREE ATTEMPTS TO LIGHT AND THE SAFTY SHUTS IT DOWN SO WE KNOW THERE IS A CALL. FORCED DRAFT IS RUNNING,AND AN ATTEMPT TO LIGHT IS OCCURRING. CHECK TO SEE IF 120 VOLTS IS BEING SENT TO THE IGNITOR IF IT IS AND IGNITOR IS NOT GLOWING THEN ITS BAD . R AND R EXACTLY AS FOUND. DONT TOUCH CERAMICS, WEAR COTTON CLEAN GLOVES .YOU ARE PROBABLY GOING TO HAVE TO PAY A PRO CAUSE THE PRTS ARE NOT GOING TO BE SOLD TO A HOME OWNER DUE TO THIS BEING A GAS FURNACE. A PRO WILL FIX , WARRANTY, AND TEST HEAT EXCHANGER, AND BE THERE INSURED IF THERE IS A PROBLEM.

More likely the pipe sensor is defective (a sensor inside the evaporator ,connected to the thicker gas line).... if it don't send any temperature changes to the control board after 5 minutes , it believes the A/C isn't working and cuts off the whole thing to safeguard the compressor from damage ....
when the coils freeze up , from intake of outside air, when using the heat pump mode, the unit will try to defrost the coils before going back to heat mode. mine did this alot. does it kick back to heat after a few mins? also after 2 years , mine started having issues with the exhaust blower control and would go into warp mode and bang noise.seems like common issues for this unit.whether the amana, or haier version.
This unit goes in steps, 1-- thru--4 Step 1, vent fan blower motor runs & prove thru the air tube, which closes a switch and tells the circuit board to go to step---2 Step 2 lights the glow plug and goes to step 3 automatically, Step 3, opens the gas valve and send in gas thru the long venturi tubes which lights from the glow plug and on the last tube, theres a rod that sticks into the flame, if no flame or not working properly, it will shut down the starting sequences and retry for 4-times and automaticaly lockout till unplug and start over. (whever step it stops at, then thats where your problem is!
