Induction fan comes on ignitor wont ignite


If the igniter turns orange and the gas fires for only a second or two then your heat sensor needs to be cleaned with sand cloth, if it does not turn orange then your igniter needs to be replaced.

Furnace starts up blower starts..nothing ignites...then shuts down. repeats and doesnt stop...sanded igniter stick and nothing happend. flashes red once.


Do you see the actual ignitor glow? You must be saying that you sanded the sensor. The ignitor, after the little inducer fan comes on will begin to glow a bright orange until the burner lights. If the ignitor is broken, you will NOT see a glow, and you may smell a faint smell of gas.

Why heater coils glow?


It sounds like you're describing one of two things. The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace, or the resistive heat strips in an electric furnace.

The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace lights the burners. This ignitor in modern furnaces serves the same purpose as the standing pilot flame did in older furnaces. It provides the required heat to ignite the gas at the burners. Without an ignition source, a gas-fired furnace cannot provide heat. When the ignitor is activated it will glow bright orange or yellow.

The resistive heat strips in an electric furnace actually provide the heat to a home or building. When the furnace turns on, the heat strips are activated and usually glow orange when they reach peak temperature. In almost all cases, the heat strips are not easily seen or accessed without removing covers or panels inside the furnace.

Rheem 90+ NG Furnace. When furnace starts, draft inducer starts, ignitor glows and gas ignites. Burners stay lit for 10 seconds or so, then the flame reduces for a few seconds then goes out. Main blower...


Check the draft inducer air switch ( vacuum diaphragm switch) If the switch is opening when the burner starts, you might have a blockage on air piping coming into the furnace. Also prime the condensate trap on the condensate drain from the combustion fan. Also check the gas pressure, if your gas pressure is dropping, the gas pressure switch will shut it down. If it's too high the moment it comes on could raise the pressure in the furnace dropping out the combustion fan proving switch.

Amana Gas furnace, Air Command 80 SV. Does not ignite. The blower turns on, then gas valve opens. I can hear a mechanical switch close, which is probably the igniter control. But no spark, no flame. ...


Buy a new ignitor here; The Ignitor Store. Or talk an Amana dealer/Contractor to sell you one. They can range from 15 to 35 bucks! Depending on their mark-up. Give them your model number, and or ignitor part number. Their simple to change out, good luck, please contact if you have any questions.

yes! The furnace goes through 4--steps for complete run time. Step -1 the small vent fan comes on, and prove it thru the small rubber tube that sucks the switch close and tells the c.b. its turnning, Step 2.. the glow plug glow and 08 seconds later, Step -3 then the gas valve open and dump in gas ,which ignites and heat up the box. and proves it got flame through a flame sensor (pin) sticking in the flame .& Step -4, the box heats up to a predetermined temp. and turn on the fan! thats all. Thank-you-very-much!
