    I replaced thermopile prior to replacing regulator, also replaced thermostat at that time. that seemed to help at that time-but now back to same problem.

    Have you ever replaced the thermopile? It is similar to thermocouple.

You have some limit switches located around the unit one high one or two around the middle one of them is opening and not closing. You need to take off the cover and locate the limits undo the wires and ohm them out you should have complete circuit now the one that is open when you find it is bad and needs to be replaced with the same rated heat temperature as original. Your t-stat goes through these limits and one open would kill the whole circuit. Let me know how it goes. ken

My Coleman furnace 4322/729 model lights the pilot but won't cut in . What could be problem ? Cleared lines Complete


Gas valve not opening? Does it have the exhaust blower that pulls vacuum switch allowing burner to light?
(1) Thermostat not working? Has to complete the circuit in or gas valve to open.
(2)Can be a stuck or bad gas valve. Try tapping the side of the gas valve body while thermostat is calling for heat. Tapping,not pounding. Like lightly,yannow? don-ohio (:^)

Cannot get gas to flow to pilot flame with main valve parallel to gas pipe. Is there something I must push to make gas flow to the pilot flame pipe?


you said, in effect: Cannot get gas to light the pilot flame even though manual supply valve is open. Is there something I must push to light [ignite] the pilot? Permalink
The gas supply valve is open, and the pilot gas cutoff valve is open but [it seems like] gas will not flow to the pilot flame because it will not light when I supply a match or lighter flame. I remember there is a button or something I need to press...but where it it? I cannot find it.
