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?

I have a RHEEM RGUJ-05EA-ER GAS FURNACE in my attic. early in the morning and late at night when the temperature is low it does not trigger on. The thermostat is new as well as the HOT SURFACE IGNITION...


Couple ideas here. First is make sure the thermostat is level. Most do not work unless they are level. Second, make sure there is enough fresh air. It make have a low oxygen sensor which keeps it from lighting.

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

My Rheem Criterion II gas furnance is not igniting the burner. What can I do to fix this myself?


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).

Rheem tankless water heater wont lite


the system was not sized properly, you need to have a 3/4 gas line to the unit for the volume of gas it needs, the tankless water heaters need to have every bit of gas that is says, it sounds like who ever installed di not make sure you had enough gas comming in the house, you might have to either have a new meter installed or run the gas lind directly from the meter to the water heater and cap off the gas line thats there

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.
