The pilot light will be fine it is gas. The only way you need to relight pilot light is if you turn off the gas. The furnace should restart itself when the power comes back on.

Home furnace comfortmaker blowing cold air


Home owner's manual? Troubleshooting section. Gas or electric?
If gas, pilot light may be out, or other gas controls. Are you sure you have gas supply? Do you have other Gas appliances so you can check? Furnace needs power for controls, fan and thermostat. Are you sure you have electric power to the furnace? Does the thermostat have a fan switch? If so turn it on and see if the fan turns on. If it does not turn on you may have a circut breaker poped. or some other reason power to the furnace is not working.

When I turn the heater on, I here all the switches during cycle up but the gas never ignites. after a few minutes the furnace cycles down. The blower fan and AC work fine.


Make sure the pilot light is lit. if the pilot light is not lit I believe there is a safety switch that stops the flow of gas to prevent filling your home with it.

How do you lite the pilot lite on a Rheem Gas Furnace Model #rgma-125a


If I recall correctly, model number Rheem furnace you listed has electronic ignition to light the pilot, when the home's thermostat calls for heat. Is this what you're having a problem with?

Pilot light wont stay lit.want to clean the orifice


You shut off the gas.
Shut off the power.
Remove the gas valve and burner assembly.
After cleaning and reassembly you must purge the system and use a gas leak detecting soap to verify no leaks before turning on the power.

Can't find instructions on lennox gf 8 series furnace


Does it have a standing pilot light? On new units, there is an igniter and not a pilot. But if you have a standing pilot, you will move the gas valve to "pilot" and push down the red button while holding a flame under the pilot located by one of the jets. Once it lights continue to hold the button down for a minute or so and then release the button. The pilot should stay lit. Then turn the dial to the on position. That's it.......... If the pilot won't stay lit then the thermocouple is bad and needs to be replaced.

Rheem gas furnace pilot lights, but no burners or fan


If the burners do not fully ignite, the sensor will shut the furnace down. The lack of sufficient burner flame is a gas valve or gas pressure problem within the valve.
Replacing the gas valve with the original one may get you going. I surely suggest a professional service company for safety reasons and a thorough inspection. A 20 year old furnace is past it's normal life span.

Gas boiler won't stay lit!


The burners and pilot need to be cleaned.
Turn off gas and power, remove the burners and pilot. Clean with a brass wire brush. (Steel wire can be used but very carefully) Remove all rust dirt etc. reinstall and it should fire right up.

Furnace gas pilot light keeps going out when windy outside


Honeywell makes an electronic ignition conversion kit. (White rodgers also has one but it uses a mercury switch which can be expense if it goes bad). A good service man can install the "Honeywell Y86 Universal Intermittent Pilot Retrofit Kit". This is a "complete" kit for converting a standing pilot system to electronic ignition. It includes a new gas valve, ignition cables with connectors. ignition module and a pilot assembly. It does not include pilot tubing (pilot tubing is cheap). This kit also comes equipped for either natural gas or propane. Your heating guys probably don't know about it because they are to young and not familiar with the old days. Or they just don't care and would rather sell you a furnace. I think that they just don't care. I live in Ohio I just opened up the "new" Johnstone Supply catalog. This part is "not" outdated its on page 450. Do not let these heating guys buffalo you into a new furnace. You are to smart for that! If you weren't you would have believed them and bought something you don't need. Instead of researching on the internet.
The bad news is this kit lists for $456. plus labor.
Good luck!

Pilot ligting instructions


many of the newer furnaces don't have a standing pilot. look to see if you have a gas valve with a knob on top that says off pilot and on. look to see if a tube the size of a pencil comes out of the valve and goes down by one of the burners, look to see if there is a little gold piece of metal tubing protruding down to the opening of the larger tube . that is where you place the match. i prefer to use a grill lighter. safer and positive flame. turn knob to off wait 5 minutes for any gas to disipate. be sure your incoming gas valves are all open . usually at the meter and one at the furnace. usually the handle is in line with the pipe when open. from the off position, turn the knob on the furnace gas valve to pilot position and push down on it as you turn. this lets gas flow to the pilot tube by the burner where you have you flame starter lit and waiting. once pilot lights hold down on button for 3 minutes or less. longer is better to be sure the thermocouple senses flame . then gently release the downward pressure and the pilot should stay lit and you gently turn knob to on. if pilot goes out you may have a bad thermocouple. be especially careful if its lp or propane as that gas does not disipate like natural gas and can virtually lay on the floor till ignited. also consider having the heat exchanger checked by a pro with a carbon monoxide detector. they do crack after a few years and can be deadly when they do. good luck
