If you noticed when it lit, there is an ignitor on the right side of the burners. On the left side is a flame sensor. Look for a lone orange or white wire leading to the flame sensor. Turn the power off and clean that flame sensor with a piece of steel wool. Reapply power and see how it does.

I need your model number to be sure, but I sounds like a flame sensor. If you have a hot surface ignitor(orange glow device) then in the same area there should be a small single wire sensor that sits in the flame Remove and wire brush the end and try that.

If you have a circuit board count the fast and slow flashes after it fails 3 tiimes and this will make a code

Having problem with lennox furnace Model ML193DF090P48C-02.Furnace has been working but now and getting worse furnace will kick on 20 seconds or so but nothing.Igniter does not come on.When it finally


Usually when your flame sensor gets dirty, the igniter and burner come on for approx.15 seconds, then shuts down. After 3 tries it will lock the furnace out. You have to shut the power off to the furnace then turn it back on to reset it. You need to turn all the power off to the furnace and remove the flame sensor, clean it with some very fine steel wool and put it back in. Be careful not to handle the Sensor (metal) part with your fingers. Turn the power on and set your thermostat so that it will call for Heat. That should fix, it if not you may need a new flame sensor.

Ruud 80 plus furnace


Make sure you give it time. Gas furnaces ignite first and then the fan comes on. It will run for a while to heat the exchanger first. If the fan comes on with the heat it will blow cold initially. The fan also continues to run after the burners shut off to expel the existing heat in the ductwork

Have a ruud achiever 90 plus furnace. the flame goes out after the igniter quits. any ideas


Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad ignitor what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution: You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor. If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

Air pro gas furnace model #g8c07512mub11a The combustion fan comes on the igniter glows red the gas fires in the burners for 5 seconds the it shuts down. Any suggestions would be helpful.


I would suggest you change the flame sensor. It will be a small diameter probe extending into burner compartment,usually over or inbetween burners. If your furnace is lighting the burners but they won't stay lit That Is what I would do first.. I also would turn thermostat to fan on to make sure you don't have a problem with the fan. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Gas furnace, main burner ignites the other 2 don't. then shutdn.


Between the burners is a small rail in the pressed steel where the flame runs across to light the other burners and it sounds like there is dirt or debris in the step over rails causing the problem. You will need to use some compressed air on those rails to clear them out. Once the rails are clear the other two burners should ignite right away.

The exhaust blower starts for about 15 seconds then shuts off. several minutes later, the same thing happens - over and over


goodman furnance the exhaust fan starts, igniter glows hot, all burners lite up & will burn for about a minute and shuts down . I think it senses the room blower does not start so it shuts down.

Furnace burner turns off and on


The furnace is likely over heating and the high temp. safety is shutting it down. It then cools and starts again. Things to check: Filter, Blower wheel and indoor A/C coil. If any or all are dirty you are limiting air flow and need to clean them.

Heater lights for about 5 sec and then goes out


One flash on a Ruud furnace indicates failure to ignite. There is a viewing port on the furnace where you can watch the flame. If the ignitor is igniting the burner and then 2 or 3 seconds later, the flame goes out; you most likely have a flame sensor that is dirty or not working. Check to make sure you are getting gas. Check the connections of all wires to the control board. If the sensor is not part of the ignitor, see if you can get to it to clean it with a small wire brush. Make sure there is a good ground connection between the board and furnace frame. If the flame is not traveling all the way to the flame sensor, clean your burners. If the flame burns inside the burners, you may have weak gas pressure. Good Luck.
