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.

SOURCE: Goodman GMNT furnace goes into 'lock-out'.

check to see if your intake pipe or vent is clear this could cause a flame jump and make it look like a bad flame sensor let me know if this helps

SOURCE: No heating and no hot water, my boiler won't fire up

If there is a hi-limit switch, maybe it's open, reset the switch, and monitor the temperature, if the temp. increases over the set temp. replace stat, and clean lime off from the tank, if does not have a filtering system

SOURCE: reversing valve not switching over to air on heat pump. compressor will come on for about 10 minutes, then shut off. Hot air comes out vent.

Look for any refrigerant leaks - no or low refrigerant can cause problems in both modes. The unit may be going off on low suction.

-OR-

The unit may be stuck in the heating mode.

Make sure the system is calling for the correct mode (cooling or heating) - some systems are auto, but if you can, select cooling since that is the requested mode. Check for power at the reversing valve inside the condensing unit. If power exists, then the reversing valve is stuck. It could also be the reversing valve solenoid coil, so make sure that isn't bad. There should be a strong magnetic field at the solenoid coil.

If you can hear the reversing valve clicking (moving), check the T-stat and make sure it will switch modes. Also check the reversing valve relay (those can be located in either the indoor unit or condensing unit).

SOURCE: unit starts and stops to often

No this is not normal. You have a problem refered to as "short cycling". This is an indication of low refrigerant charge. You need to have the unit leak checked, repaired and recharged,

SOURCE: I have a Rudd furnace

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?

We have a Worcester Bosch Highflow 400 (10 year old) combi boiler. Over the last few weeks when we have put on the heating the boiler kicks in and fires up and the heating comes on (the water comes on fine...


The by pass pipe may be limed up. This apparently causes a reduced flow which will stop the heating side of the thing working. Call out Worcester Bosch engineer. It costs £210 including VAT and most parts and they almost guarantee to get it working.

Loss of hot water


usually with a loss of hot water on a boiler and the heating still works ok means the heat exchanger is blocked and needs replacing or cleaning. it could also be a faulty sensor.

Vokera option combi boiler seems to increase in pressure until it opens the safety vave ,only when heating is on !


check to see if the expansion tank is completely full of water or isolated from the rest for the system. If full it needs replacing, if isolated (valve turned off to it) then turn it on. When a hot water heating system cannot allow for expansion then the pressure will increase when running until the saftey opens.

My vokera linea 7 boiler is loosing water through over flow pipe while heating up to temperature


The pipe you call over flow. This would be the P/R valve and is set to relieve pressure in system. The first thing that needs to be checked - the expansion tank two types of tanks one would be what is know as a extrol tank, Most likey just hanging off pipe, it has air pressure on one side of rubber dia. and boiler water on other. The 2nd type is just a tank at ceiling height (most of the time). You would see a hose bib off the one end. Tank holds some water but must have air for boiler water to push into as it is heated. If you have the first tank it should be replaced. The 2nd type needs to be drained of all water. Shut off feed line to tank hook up short hose and drain into a bucket. if water stops you must break the vacuum raise hose above tank air should go into tank. repete draining till all water is out of tank. Some tanks have a way to open a valve to let air in as you drain if so use it. When all water is out of tank valve off everything (no air should leave tank) Open back up to system now you should have aplace for the water to expained to.

I have a radiant floor heating system with a wirsbo control system, i keep having to reset the system to get the zones to heat up again. The broiler is working fine. The first time I reset the radiant heat...


Is this a water circulating system? If so there are bleeder ports on your radiant heating zones on the floor that you can bleed the air out of the system. They look like a tire air pressure valve. Depress the valve core with a small screwdriver or something of the same nature. You will hear air coming out and water will come out. This is done while system is running. Also it may maybe under pressurized, circulating pump could be shutting down. Does the boiler keep running or shut down on reset. If it does could be within the boiler itself. Please rsvp with more info.
