What code is the control board flashing when it tries two or three times? Does it even fire? Does it go straight to fan and lockout?

Weather king select furnace


At the opposite side of the burners from the igniter there is a small metal probe/rod situated where the flame would blow across it during operation. This rod is for flame verification so the gas valve will know that the gas is being ignited. Often that probe will get carbon built up on it which will cause the furnace to light but then abruptly shut off because "the probe doesn't know there is a flame there". A fine grit sandpaper works well to restore it's conductive ability. However, if the furnace runs for a while before it shuts off you could very well have an obstruction in the vent pipe or an obstructed indoor coil. If cleaning the flamerod doesn't remedy the problem, I strongly recommend a qualified serviceperson look at it! The furnace could well be turning itself off because something is getting too hot and coming back on when it cools. Good luck.

Rheem rgpe won't ignite. cleaned flame sensor - still won't light.


check to see if the hot surface igniter is coming on or if direct spark see if it is sparking to light if this is working then you are not getting gas from your gas valve. The board should be giving you code by blinking light. If you will count the blinks there should be a chart on the door to tell you what it means. HOPE THIS HELPS

You could have plugged orfices in the line coming out of the gas valve. Next you could have a plugged gas regulator.The only way your going to find this out is to check gas pressure before the gas valve during a call for heat and then check it after the gas valve during a call for heat you could have a bad gas valve. Try this let me know what you find Thanks and please leave feedback

I have a Rudd furnace model UGRA-04EMAES in heating cycle inducer makes pressure switch ignitor lites up no gas pressure i rplaced gas valve and board still no gas. Wat next?


Well first you want to verify that there is gas pressure coming from the connector. Turn off the valve and disconnect the connector. Then turn on the valve for 1 second and back off. You should get plenty of gas flow. Be careful doing this!. Then inspect the opening at the adapter to the control. There is a screen inside there. Make sure the screen is clear(not plugged with pipe dope,lint ect). When the igniter reaches the 2200 degrees you should hear the gas solenoid valve click open releasing gas. If you hear it click and no gas is released you will need to inspect the burner orfices. The orfice has an extremely small hole and there is a posibillity that they are plugged with debris. You will need to use a very small wire(like a tie strap) and insert it into each hole and see if there is anything in the orfice. If you do not hear the gas valve click then it might not be getting the signal it needs due to a weak igniter or flame rectification sensor. Does your furnace have a stand-by pilot that is lit by the hot surface igniter or does the igniter directly light the burner assembly?

The furnance runs fine for about 3min. Then the burners go out. The fan limit is still closed, pressure switch is pulled in, and the manuel reset switch on the flue is not tripped. What's causing the...


On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

Furnance will not heat


Check your voltage going into the gas valve. It should be 24-27 volts. If it is to low the gas valve will chatter. If the voltage is strong enough you have a bad gas valve.
