Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

My Lennox Furnace starts and stops.

It starts for about 2 seconds, then starts again for about 2 seconds, then shuts off. After about the 3rd time it tries to start, the furnace makes a thump sound and blower kicks in and runs for about 15-20 seconds and then completely stops.

First let me thank all the pros that take the time to answer our questions. My wife thinks I'm a genious. I had the same problem up to 30 minutes ago and fixed it from a solution found on a different webpage. There's sensor sticking up where the flames come out with a single wire coming from it. Remove the sensor and scrub it with steel wool. Replace it and get your hummer from the old lady because you just saved her a few hundred bucks.

    Just don't confuse the sensor to the igniter, which is also in the way of the flames but has 2 wires.

The reason why it stops and starts is that the sensor within the burner can not sense a flame in the furnace. The parts need to checked is the fuel filter, Air in the line, burnt out arcing rods or a bad ac high voltage transformer.

Flame sensor dirty


Sandpaper lightly scrubbed over the sensor tip to remove any contamination.

Sometimes cleaning is not enough and the sensor must be replaced.

Lennox furnace 17 yeanrs old. flame comes on and the shuts down sometimes right away some times in a few minutes. We have the furnace go down to 58 at night. It takes all day to get back to 67.


Sounds like a dirty flame sensor.
Also 9 degrees is a large swing to recover. Most specialist will advise no more than a 5 degree set back, otherwise recovery time eliminates any savings you may achieve.

Gas furnace wont stay lite


I'm a little confused by your terminology. You are saying you have a pilot lite and electric heat strips? Are you possibly meaning burners? Is the heater running for 2 hours straight without shutting off? how cold is it there? Lastly what temperature do you have the thermostat set at and how close does it get to the temp. before it shuts off?
