    Our pilot light goes out without any notice. Once we turn the furnace off, from the thermostat, and back on it works fine.

Are all gas valves open? Is it electronic spark or pilot light? Did it get wet? Is thermocouple good?(Most likely problem) Is main power switch on? Blown fuse? Are you getting the flame to the right spot when trying to light?

Colman gas furnace wont light


Is it natural gas or propane? If propane, make sure you are not out of gas. Does it have electronic ignition or a manual pilot? if pilot, make sure the pilot flame is still lit and the control knob is turned to the "On" position. If it has electronic ignition, shut off the power to the furnace and then turn it back on and see if resets and lights.

Furnace burners won't ignite


Assuming this is a gas furnace, when the thermostat calls for heat the pilot heats an igniter to produce voltage that opens the burner gas valve. In your furnace, the igniter may have failed and the burner can't fire up

GE furnace pilot won't ignite


Check for 24 volts at the pilot valve on the gas valve, if there is voltage, take an amp reading, if you get amperage it's trying to work, see if pilot orifice is obstructed by webs etc. very common to see this.

Pilot won't stay lit on furnace


Is that pilot automatic? If so then a quick easy fix for this is to located the sensor and replace it or clean it up with sand paper. After ignition the control is looking for verification of ignition from that sensor. How to videos

Where is the pilot light located on the furnace?


Depending on what kind of furnace you have and how old it is, you may not have a standing pilot. Newer furnaces use electronic ignition systems. Hot surface ignitors and spark ignition.

Heater doesn't come on?


The electronic ignition system in a gas furnace is a modern development that allows more reliable performance than standing pilot furnaces, provides energy savings and contributes to better furnace efficiency (AFUE). With a standing pilot, found most commonly on older low efficiency furnaces (55% to 65% AFUE is not uncommon), a small gas flame is always burning and is known in the lexicon of American home repair as a "pilot light". The problem with this type of "analog" ignition is that it wastes energy by constantly burning gas and can sometimes be unreliable. These issues have led to the development of electronic ignition systems for mid to high efficiency furnaces that exceed the U.S. government's established minimum AFUE rating of 78%. The electronic ignition occurs typically in one of two ways:
  • Intermittent Pilot, or
  • Hot Surface Ignition The intermittent pilot system uses an electronically controlled high voltage electrical spark to ignite the gas pilot and then subsequently the main burners, when the thermostat calls for heat.
    The hot surface ignition system uses an electronically controlled resistance heating element not unlike a light bulb filament (and shown in the photo above), to ignite the gas burner.
    It is important to understand some of the other components of a modern furnace that you will encounter depending on the type of high efficiency furnace you have. Why? Because they can also come into play in repairing an electronic ignition furnace when it won't run properly. Let's take a quick review of the types of furnace designs and components found in high efficiency furnaces using electronic ignition.
