My furnace did the same and I found a small crack in the hose going from the exaust fan to a presure switch. I cut the bad piece out and started working fine.

Why wont furnace light past the thermol coupler


There is really not enough information here to go on. If this furnace has a thermocoupling, the pilot will need to be lit manually. Follow the manufacturers lighting instructions carefully. If it still will not light you may have a dirty pilot assembly or a defective gas valve. Modern furnaces do not use a thermocoupling. There is no standing pilot light. Each time the furnace needs to be lit it will be done electronically. Many reasons why it wont light in this case. Safety control could be preventing it from lighting for safety reasons. A bad ignitor, ignition module, circuit board, gas valve, pressure switch, gas supply, induced draft motor, blocked or restricted flue pipe, cracked heat exchanger, dirty flame sensor, ect. ect. ect.

My York furnace sometimes doesn't completely ignite


A noisy inducer probably is headed for replacement.

The igniter can produce a healthy glow and still be defective. Mine had to be replaced with a new, improved one.

The thermocouple could be defective even though it seems to open the gas valve when it should.

The heat sensor in the bonnet could be defective. That controls main blower operation.

The heat exchanger could be cracked.

Totai heater wont stay on after lit


Without a pilot flame sensor signal the pilot light will not stay on and the heater won't work. Try Replacing the pilot flame sensor, the pilot flame burns on to it and it connects to the valve. It looks like a wire.

For some reason the heater does not generate heat. the fan works but no heat. Any Ideas?


I've got an easy way for you to check, and then we can help you from there.
First pop open both lids to your furnace (this may require a screwdriver). Turn up your thermostat, push the safety interlock button in if it has one (it's a button that turns off the power when the doors are removed), and watch.

On most modern furnaces (past 20-25 years) you'll hear/see:
1. Inducer fan
2. orange glow (ignitor)
3. Gas valve opening and ignition (flames)
4. Main Fan.

that's normal heater operation.
The most common issue here is a burned out ignitor, in which case you wouldn't see the orange glow but the sequence would attempt to continue anyway (the gas valve will open and hiss gas, but it won't lite, then it'll give up and try again a few minutes later).

On older furnaces there's a pilot light to start with, the click of the gas valve and boom... ignition.

On new furnaces it's
Inducer fan
gas valve opening
spark - ignition
Main fan.

and there are some oddballs in between, particularly the Lennox Pulse. If that's your furnace just back away slowly and call a professional... some guys won't even touch those, so be sure to mention what it is... if you call a pro.

So go ahead and watch it run, then tell me/us what you see.

Hi,i have a master blp 25 space heater,it starts fine but when you release the safety gas valve after 15 secs it still goes out,so not sure which part would be faulty.Thanks


If yours has a Kanthal spark/sensor it may need to be cleaned up. The ignitor lights the heater and then it has to confirm the flame is there. If the tip has junk on it then it might light the flame but cannot confirm ignition.

For whirlpool duet GGW 9250 PW0 GAS DRYER How do you know if the gas solenoid are bad? I check the resistance as per manual and its within its limit. It ignites and flames come out but the flame only...


The gas valve solenoid coils work when cool that's why the resistance reading is within the limit but fail when heated. Bypass the thermostat on the burner funnel and if the flame still goes out too soon, the coils are weak and both must be replaced. The resistance reading is reliable only when the dryer does not heat at all or shall we say the flame does not go on at all and the purpose is to check the continuity of the coil.
