Amana GUCA Pilot Light

The pilot light on our Amana GUCA won't come on. We have our furnace in the garage and the wind is really blowing outside. We had this problem once before but I can't remember how we get the pilot back on.

Sound to me that the pilot had gotten blowen out.
Turn the gas valve to Pilot and depress the knob while lighting the pilot. If it does not stay lite you may have to clean the thermocouple off. Thats the poart that the flame hits. try to use a scrub pad to clean it with.

The wind keeps on blowing out pilot light in the Intertherm Gas Furnace


The wind is probably not the culprit here. You probably have a crack in the heat exchanger, which allows the air from the blower to escape and blow out the pilot light.

The furnace is blowing out cool air. i believe i need to light the pilot. i dont know what to light i dont want to blow up or anything:). what steps do i take to light it


Depending on the furnace you might not hace a pilot light. There are several types of ignition devices. One of the more common a pilot light the second being a hot surface ignitor that glows red much like the heating element in a oven. Its possible that the HSI has cracked and needs to be replaced. Look for it on the left or right burner tube in the combustion compartment. It will either look like a rod about 3" long or a flat M.

I am trying to find information on re-lighting my pilot light on my honeywell day and night furnace. I see switch for blower is off, pilot dial is on "pilot". Blowers not active and pilot light...


Without knowing exactly who the manufacturer is and the model number of the furnace, most of us really don't want to reply to this question, for fear of you blowing yourself up. So, if you can provide that information, I'm sure one us can help you.

Thanks, Rich

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?

I have an amana furnace and it will not kick on. When the switch is turned on the furnace will try to run but won't warm up and blow. Does it have a pilot light?? or a reset button??


Try this----turn furnace off at stat and unplug furnace for 10 minutes. Plug it back in, the combustion and blower motor may both kick on for 2 minutes or so or not. Turn t-stat to heat and turn up stat to highest setting. Hurry out to furnace and you should hear the combustion motor(little motor piped to flue) kick on, then wait for a "click" next you should see a glow from the igniton element, then another click, next will be the gas valve opening. If no ignition, it will try 3 times and then lock ur *** out, and just turn on the blower just as a precaution. If you dont see the glow plug glowing after the first click, replace the $20 glow plug and you should be good to go. The glow plugs crack, and this is what breaks the connection. If you gas valve has a knob, and says pilot----turn the valve to pilot, push down on the knob, light the pilot and hold down knob for 2 minutes to heat up flame sensor. Make sure the t-stat is all the way down or off. After 2 minutes of holding pilot knob down, let go and your pilot should be still lit, if it is, then turn gas valve to ON and then turn t-stat up to kick on furnace. If ur pilot doesn't stay lit, get a new thermal couple and replace it-$12 bucks. Good luck and let me know how it went. azeddysac@yahoo.com

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 light will not stay lit


Will it stay lit for a while? If so light the pilot light, Turn on the blower fan, and watch the pilot light. Look for any air that's blowing the pilot light around. if the pilot lite is moving around then you could have a bad heat exchanger. If so you should get a carbonmonixide detector and have your furnace inspected for this. One thing to check also is make sure the thermocouple is at least 1/4 inch into the flame.
