Ignition failure code on my furnace

I am getting an ignition failure code on my coleman evcon furnace. I have already cleaned the flame sensor with a 220 grit sandpaper. The problem remains. The unit calls for heat from the tstat, the ignitor glows bright orange, the flame ignites and i can see it thru the observation hole, then just as the blower motor kicks on the flame goes out. PLEASE HELP I AM COLD!

    I have a coleman Model DGAT070BTE that will glow and then ignite, but when the blower kicks on the flame goes out. I have already cleaned the sensor unit off with steel wool. I did notice a small break in the insulation of the yellow wire going to the sensor unit, located about 3/4" from the aft end of the sensor.

I have had the same problem with mine for the last 2 years. Remove the motor on the side of the furnace(usually held on by 3 screws) and turn the fan blades inside by hand. after sitting all summer it seems to get stuck. If it moves freely, replace the motor and try to start it again. This fixed mine the last 2 years! Hope this helped.

I have a coleman furnace it comes on the electric igniter glows red the gas comes on then the blower starts and the fire goes out it gives 2 different code for this 1 is ignition failure and the other is...


I would have the ignition control board replaced. That is what tells the gas valve to come on and if there is flame or ignition it will keep the gas on if the flame sensor gives the board a signal that the burner is lite. By you shuting power off and on to the furnace it resets the board and it will go through its cycle again.

Gas furnace; flame will not stay on


Clean the flame sensor with a green scotch brite pad. Check all ground connections from the circuit board to the furnace cabinet. Check for a proper ground to the electrical box. Make sure polarity has not been reversed.

Burner flame going out on windy days on Coleman Evcon LP furnace


This sounds like a bad heat exchanger. It is possible that you do not see the crack because the crack is closed when the heat exchanger is cold (or room temp). Allow the furnace to heat up, this will allow the expansion of the crack. Turn the power off and examine the heat exchanger while it is still hot.

Coleman evcon dgat090bdd. New ignitor won't heat up.


Looks like 4 flashes might be high limit fault on this furnace. (I don't have a manual for this furnace, just searched online for the code meaning) Is the unit running flame at all? Is the unit running flame for a while then shutting flame off before desired temp is reached? Does the main air fan turn on to circulate air through your diffusers? Does it feel like the unit has much air flow out of the diffusers if the fan is running? Is your air filter clean? If it is infact your high limit switch, it is usually caused by not having enough airflow through the furnace and overheating occurs.

Hope this helped, let me know if I can assist you further :)

Most likely your flame rod is either dirty, bad or the flame is not hitting it. It is located either to the far left or far right of the burner box. It has one wire going to it and looks like a small stick pointing into the flame. Clean it with a long tooth brush. Inspect the wire where it attaches to both the rod and the control module. Inspect the flame as it starts and see if the flame reaches it within 2 to 3 seconds from first flame. If not, you may have debris clogging the flame tray not allowing the flame to pass. If this is beyond your mechanical skills (no offence) contact your gas technician.
