Try tapping firmly on the gas valve while it is trying to open. If it ignites, you will definately need a new gas valve in the near future (but this little trick might get you by for a while). If not, try using a meter, to make sure you are getting 24v to the gas valve. If you are getting 24v to the gas valve and it is not opeining, you have a bad gas valve. If you are not getting 24v to the gas valve, you have a different problem like a bad transformer, ignition box, or circuit board.

My Amana GUI090B30B furnace will not ignite. The ignitor glows then the valve releases gas but the gas does not ignite. The ignitor goes out and the valve shuts after a second or two of trying to ignite...


Hello, it is possible that even tnough the ignitor is glowing it might be too weak to ignite the burners. I would cneck the resistance of the ignitor with a multmeter, should be between 40-90 ohms typically

Furnace has automatic ignition pilot light comes on for about 10 seconds then goes back out and furnace blows cold air


Check and make sure you have gas on to the unit and to the gas valve in the furnace.. Check for 24 volts at the gas valve at the furance. Check and make sure the knob at the gas valve is in the "on" position. If you have voltage at the valve than the valve has failed. If you have no voltaged at the valve than the circuit board has failed. One last thing you can check if you do have voltage at the valve. When the hot surface ignitor is glowing orange tap on the gas valve with the handle of a screw diver. Sometimes the valve sticks. Of coarse if this works it will probably stick again. Replace the valve in this case.

I have a goodman furnace, the ignitor glows gas lights and then burns only a short time and then goes out, this hapens 3 times then furnace cycles out and I get a blinking light,


Do you have Natural Gas, or LP Gas (Propane)
Do you have any other gas appliances?- like an oven?
Do you have gas at the other appliances?

The Ignitor getting bright, and cycling 3 times is a normal number of 'LIGHT' attempts -- and shows that you do have a good ignitor- That is important! and that is GOOD!

However-- it sounds like you have NO GAS.-- Is that possible?
If you do have gas in the kitchen, then either the manual Shut off valve is shut to this appliance, or the main gas valve is not opening --- for any of a number of reasons-

Tell us more about what you do have in other appliances.

First you should hear a small fan then the glow of the ignitor then the opening of the gas valve and flames 10-30 seconds then the big fan.

Amana Gas furnace, Air Command 80 SV. Does not ignite. The blower turns on, then gas valve opens. I can hear a mechanical switch close, which is probably the igniter control. But no spark, no flame. ...


Buy a new ignitor here; The Ignitor Store. Or talk an Amana dealer/Contractor to sell you one. They can range from 15 to 35 bucks! Depending on their mark-up. Give them your model number, and or ignitor part number. Their simple to change out, good luck, please contact if you have any questions.

Gas not coming on Carrier Weather Maker 8000


either the gas valve is not opening or your not getting gas to the furnace.  also the gas valve won't open unless the draft motor comes on.  if the ignitor is trying to light, but there's no gas, it might be a bad gas valve. i would call your closest NATE certified contractor
