Check induction fan motor first...then check the rubber tube and the switch it ataches too. this switch should close if the induction motor is running...but HAS to be open before start up.

It sounds like the ignitor is not working, Since the heater is not detecting a flame it goes to lockout. Check the ignitor wiring to see if it is in good shape. Sometimes the connection where the wire (from the IID) connects to the ignitor gets corroded.

It could also be the IID which makes sure the safety loop is complete before calling for heat and sending current to the ignitor. Good luck with it.

My furnace won t ignite

My baseline rule of thumb is: gas appliances tend to blow up if improperly repaired, so I call a repair man. Could be something as simple as a broken thermocouple (it doesn't believe it's achieving the appropriate temperature and so it keeps trying to light something that's already lit and not starting the main burner) or something as scary as a gas leak that's reducing the pressure to the burner. Best to let a pro handle it.

Why does my Kozy World natural gas wall heater set off fire alarm system?

Most new heaters give off a smell or some light smoke which needs to be burnt off the first time it is used it may smoke , this may be why your alarm is going off , run it with a window open to remove smell etc .

Gas furnace model # gmb100-4 will not fire up ignitor working clicking sound afterwards but no firing up. Whats wrong

If induced draft motor comes on then ignitor tries to light but no flame I would change control board.I've had the same problem on several goodman heaters and all but one required new board. The other one was a bad gas valve but I would try board first. Hope this helps. Thanks
