If your igniter comes on but no ignition, that eliminates the possibility of a bad or clogged pressure switch, high limit or flame rollout switch. Sounds to me like you have a control board, or a gas valve going bad. Could even be some loose, corroded, or faulty wiring. Before the igniter comes on the furnace does a self diagnostics to ensure everything is working, or the furnace will not make it to the igniter sequence. Inducer motor, pressure switch/s, limit controls are closed…then comes on the ignitier, gas valve opens, pilot runners and burners ignite, flame sensor detects the flame, blower comes on and all operations are working.

Hope this helps

It sounds like the ignitor is not working, Since the heater is not detecting a flame it goes to lockout. Check the ignitor wiring to see if it is in good shape. Sometimes the connection where the wire (from the IID) connects to the ignitor gets corroded.

It could also be the IID which makes sure the safety loop is complete before calling for heat and sending current to the ignitor. Good luck with it.

I have a Trane gas furnace with White Rodgers 50A50-474 board is flashing a 2 flash code which is a system lockout-no flame/Check line polarity message. The furnace blower contines to run, but the gas...


Sounds like your ignitor is bad, not lighting the gas. If this happens 3x, then controler goes into lockout and induced draft motor continues to run to extract the gas fumes as a safety.
Either replace the HSI (Hot Surface Ignitor) or sand down the end of the electronic spark ignitor and it's ground rod (they work like an exposed spark plug) to remove the carbon buildup on it so it can spark again. All with the power off, of course!

The water heater red light keeps flashing rapidly on my Powervent 2 model 41VRP40N. It is not producing hot water and when I read the manual it says it needs more heat. What does this mean. How do I fix...


There are many things to check. The single most important test is for 24V at the gas valve after the ignitor is supposed tp be on. 19 V or less and there is either a bad ground or the ingition control board has failed. (Wire ground problems are a high probablilty)

Here is what the book says:

PROBLEM #1 - HOT SURFACE IGNITOR DOES NOT GLOW RED

(Remember to wait for purge time, 17/34 seconds, on models so equipped).

Possible causes

A. No main power

B. Faulty transformer

C. Faulty thermostat

D. Faulty limit switch

E. Faulty blower interlock switch

F. Faulty hot surface ignitor

G. Faulty ignition control

Solution

Step #1

Perform normal system checks of main power, transformer, thermostat, limit

switch, blower interlock switch, and replace faulty component.

Step #2

With power on and thermostat set at its highest position, check voltage

between "TH" and "TR" on HS780 ignition control. If 24 volts is not present

check output at transformer. If no, replace transformer. If transformer

checks out OK look at other controls in the 24 volt circuit I.E.: thermostat,

limit switch, blower interlock switch. Check for 120 volts between "neut"

(L2) and "120" (L1). Check for 120 volts at the ignitor across "IGN" and

"IGN" terminals on the HS780 ignition module. If 120 volts is present,
replace ignitor. If no, replace the 780 series module

PROBLEM #2 - IGNITOR GLOWS RED BUT MAIN BURNER

WOULDN'T LIGHT

Possible causes

A. Improper ignitor alignment

B. Faulty ignition control

C. Faulty gas valve

D. High inlet gas pressure

E. Polarity reversed

F. No earth ground

Solution

Step #1

Check for availability of gas at gas valve. Make sure the manual valve

upstream of the gas valve and the gas valve are in the full on position. Also

make sure gas is being supplied to the system at the proper pressure, too

high will lock-up the valve.

Step #2

Check proper polarity of "NEUT" and "120" on the ignition control by reversing

the wires, if reversed gas valve will not open. If this does not solve the

problem, replace wires as they were.

Step #3

Check for proper ignitor position.

Step #4

Check for a good earth ground by using a meter connected between L1

and furnace chassis. Should read 120 volts, if no, check and/or repair ignition
ground wire or ignition control mounting screws.
CAUTION POLARITY MUST BE OBSERVED

Step #5

Check for 24 volts at the gas valve terminals; "1" and "2" on a 7200 series,

"M" and "C" on a 7100 series, "TH" and "TR" on a 7000 series. If yes,

check wire integrity or change the gas valve. If no, change the 780 series
ignition module.

That is pretty much all of the troubleshooting required.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Heater exhaust blower comes on ignitor lights but it doesn't seem to get gas everything works but no flame and blower won't kick on the unit is brand new and was working this morning then stopped


This furnace should have a trobleshooting diagnostic led flashing light. Each blink (for example 3 blinks means open limit switch) has a particlur meaning. On the bottom panel has an explaination on what the blinks mean. But in the meantime check 24v at the gas right as the ignitors light. If you have 24v and the gas valve doesnt let the gas thru then the gas valve might be defective. I usually put 24v dircetly to the gas valve for 2-3 seconds to see if gas will come out. It is loud enogh to hear as well as smell. If you dont have 24v as the ignitor tries to light then check the air pressure switch. Also follow the wire off the gas valve. One is to ground. Make sure the gas valve is grounded. Follow not the grounded wire but the other one. Find out where the 24v power stops.

Turn on green light flashes


Count the flashes before a pause. A steady on is bad ground or loose igniter. 2 flashes is either low gas pressure, bad flame sensor, gas valve wires loose or bad ignitor. 3 flashes is a bad pressure switch, or blocked vent. 4 flashes is a bad roll-out switch or open contact. 5 flashes is bad wiring to gas valve or flame sensor, 6 flashes is either a bad control board or bad thermostat.

Burners sometimes will not light


You can check the ignitors/wiring by switching

the output wires at the spark module. If the

front ones work & back ones stop working, change

out the module. If no change take a look at the

ignitor(remove screw on bottom to remove

ignitor), ignitor wire & ground wire by removing

the burners.

Possible Causes Of Continuous Sparking:
Defective spark wires.
Continuous high heat can cause spark wires to

degrade. Use volt/ohm meter to determine

continuity
of spark wires. Look for obvious cuts/ abrasions

or pinch points. A defective wire can allow
spark voltage to transfer through insulation to

ground prior to reaching spark electrode. Under
normal circumstances all igniters fi re together

and if the burner in question has found an

easier
ground path the spark will go there. It will

not, however, in most cases have found a

CONTINUOUS
ground path such as what the fl ame would

provide under normal circumstances. This will

cause
the spark module to re-ignite.

Goodman GMP075-3 ignition problem


OK, if the furnace is not lighting for even a few seconds, you have either a bad gas valve, bad wire, bad control module or no gas. The pressure switch is not the issue. Check all wires to the gas valve and look for 24 volts across them when the ignitor glows and you hear the click. Then test for 24 volts to ground. It could be a bad ground wire.
