Royal Jet Flow Gravity Furnace (OLD)

My girlfreinds house is old and the furnace is a Royal Jet Flow FG-2-55 Gravity Vented natural gas fired furnace.

I cleaned the thermal coupler and flame sensor and the furnace now burns longer and works great! Except, now when it starts the gas flows for about 1 to 2 seconds before it ignites. This causes a good flash and about a 6-inch flame flashs out of the venting. Needless to say this is not good.

did I do something wrong, or do I need to adjust the pilot flame making it larger or do I need to replace something? I tried cleaning the burner but it only worked for about two firings then it started and got worse (3 or 4 seconds) before it ignited BOOM!

    Merle, I have the same problem and am also looking for solutions. I have been told that its, "the nature of the beast". I have purchased a new honeywell pilot assy., $80.00 bucks, and I am going to install it today. I will keep you advised as to the outcome. kcnodlr.

SOURCE: Gas flows to long before igniting.

try cleaning the crossovers between the burners. Also look closely at the flame and make sure that the burner is firing all the way to the pilot. Sometimes its just a few little holes that vent a little gas to give the flame a path to follow will be stopped up and cause the condition you describe

Get the pilot light sensor replaced as the burn down with use and if they are just out of spec the sensor cools and shuts off the gas flow for safety

My heater runs but when it is really cold it wont fire .


Sounds like a coupler problem if it is gas.... the thermostat sends a signal to the coupler ( a regulator valve that opens to allow gas through). which opens and allows gas through to the pilot light... if the pilot light is always out then it is the thermal coupler that is the culpert.

Based on your description I would guess that there is a "leak" somewhere between the gas valve and the actual fire. Use soap bubbles to check the connections at the gas valve. Also check the gaskets in the Gas valve the same way. Lastly there may be a cracked or misaligned burner causing the "leak". Best of Luck!

How do i install a thermal coupler for forced air heater gas


Thermo coupler is held in place with a clamp bracket at the pilot end and a small brass line nut on the other end going into the gas valve.The pilot flame must surround the sensing bu or wrap itself around it Press the pilot button for a few seconds and fire up the pilot flame. Wait a few more minutes and turn the gas vale on for the main burners. If it fires, your set.Good Luck,Ned

Wall furnace model # SFB50146B Thermal Coupler. Does it have 2 wires?


if the pilot light stays lit, but the burners don't kick on, it's a problem with the thermostat or thermostat wiring, or a problem with the valve inside the gas actuator
