First step turn the thermostat off. It is very important.
Next find the knob on top of the gas valve you will see writing on it turn it to pilot it could be in the off position so move it to pilot depress the knob where it goes down about one inch. Take a long lighter long match or something like that and hold at the pilot it will be back in the furnace by the front of the burners. Once the pilot lights hold the button for another 30 seconds. Release the knob now the pilot should be on and the next step is why you turned off the thermostat rotate the knob to on position. Go to the t-stat and turn on the heat.

Goodman furnace cacf030a2a fan seems to come in but no pilot light... Help??


might need to bleed the gas line at the furnace, if it has not ran in some time the gas gets weak and will not support the flame needed to keep the pilot light lit

Goodman gas heater model GUE080-4 . pilot lighs , but furnace will not . Electronic pilot lights & stays on for about 1 min, than shuts off seems main gas relay not switching on.need manual


Check roll out switches located around burner compartment.
there is a small square button between the wire terminals press firmly down on it to rest switches. If this solves the problem have the furnace cleaned and checked by a professional HVAC technician.

Why would my Goodman LP furnace CAPF1824B6CA hum, but not kick on?


most furnaces no longer have a pilot, they are all electronic ignition. first thing to come is the inducer motor. if that is what is humming, then either the run capacitor is shot, or theres an issue with the motor itself

Where is the pilot light on a Goodman LP furnace CAPF1824B6CA


I could not find that exact model but I don't think it has a pilot. I think what you have is a faulty igniter.(its a glow plug)

You need to find it-should be on rt side just in front of a burner venturi. Unplug it and check for continuity.

How do you light the furnace of a goodman ez 1625


We have not lit pilot lights ourselves since 1978 when they outlawed standing pilots in Ca for furnaces. We have electronic ignitions of spark oror hot surface ignition, neither of which can be manually lit.
Do you get any fan action if you flip the fan on from auto?if so, you have power and 24v control power too, I would start there.

I have a Goodman forced air heating system in my attic that's only about 3 years old and I believe the pilot light went out last night in a storm. My problem is that I can't locate the pilot in the unit...


Marc, look for where the gas line enters the furnace and remove the panel adjacent to it. That should gibe you access to the pilot light. Also, look for a pilot access door, near where the gas line enters the furnace. The gas line will either be 1/2" flexible copper tubing. 1/2" black iron pine or 1/2" vinyl coated flexible stainless steel. Look for the lighting instructions inside or on the side of the unit.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.
