It is located right in front of the first burner off to the side ever so much. When I say first burner as you are looking at it take your right hand and reach out when looking at unit with top cover off. Is that enough so you can locate the item?

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

Furance blower works, ignitor come on for a short time we hear a click ignitor goes out blower runs for a short time ignitor come again but gas not coming on. What is wrong.


The ignitor needs to get up to a predetermined temperature prior to opening up the gas valve, you could have a weak ignitor. You need to see if the PC board is sending 24 volts to gas valve. If it is but no gas, bad gas valve. If not, bad ignitor or bad PC board. I would change out the ignitor first since it is a wear item as well as the cheapest component.

Gas furnice will run but doesnt seem to ignite...no flame burning! but it does run an doesnt blow heat?


check the ignitor if this unit has one...have a volt meter ready.unplug unit and unplug the ignitor place the leads to your meter in the ignitor molex plug one lead in each hole of the molex plug. turn the unit back on with power restored the small enducer draft motor should come on and then activate the pressure switch which has a hose connected to it. once it activates should send power to ignitor ..fi you are getting power but the ignitor is not glowing when connected then you have a bad ignitor. you did not post model mut if it is gas unit it will have either a ignitor or a pilot assembly... if it is a pilot assembly repost and one of us will be glad to walk you through checking it...good luck to you

Ignitors wirinh burns and ignitor welds together. 4 year of same problem. thanks for your time. rick


Just a thought. When you change out ignitor are you being careful to not touch any of the ceramic or tungsten parts with your fingers? If you get even a very small amount of oil or other contaminates on ignitor it will cause them to burn out quickly. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Furnace will not light burners and blower motor doesn't come on, but exhaust fan comes on immediately when turning furnace on. Turned on A/C to make sure blower operates and it does. The combustion...


The reset button should be a small round red button that you just push in to reset. If the induced draft motor comes on as soon as thermostat calls for heat then the next thing to check is the ignitor. It may be a hot surface or spark ignitor.It should glow or spark depending on the type,and you should be able to see it clearly. The ignitor should be located by pilot assembly right beside burners. If the ignitor does not work the furnace willnot procede in lighting sequence. If ignitor is not working then it must be replaced. Usually this is pretty easy if you can get repair parts.Remove screw holding ignitor in place and disconnect wires. Install new one and try it. Good luck. Thanks

Hi, I have a Goodman furnace model GKS91155DXAD. The blower stays on. After turning power off for a few minutes then back on, the draft blower comes on for a few seconds then goes out but the blower...


I would check hot surface ignitor or spark ignitor to make sure they are working. If not then replace them and try again.If ignitor does not come on control board will shut down, try to restart usually try 4-5 times then lock. out. Generally for a preset time then try again. If it has tried to start to many times and failed it will lockout until power is shut off and it can reset. Hope this helps you. Thanks

I have a carrier 58RAV095-12 the exhaust fan will run for about 20 to 30 second when you first turn the furnace on then just shut off. Is there a way to check if the ignitor is working before going and...


Normally the Ignitor is easily removed with 1 screw....be careful its very brittle and obviousy turn the power off first...you likely will see a very small crack in the ignitor and a "Hot spot"...it may also be defective even though it's not cracked...the best thing to do is unplug the ignitor and recycle the furnace checking for 120 volts at the Ignitor shortly after the fan starts and before it stops...If you have 120 volts and the ignitor isn't lighting up then it's defective....if you have no power to the ignitor it is something else and requires more info...look for an error code (Lights flashing on the circuit board)

Therm calls for heat, enducer fan turns on, pressure switches closes, ignitor sparks, gas valve opens. If ignitor does not spark, it will go to try a few times then lockout. Do you have a led code on your control board, if so what is it blinking? Could be ignitor bad only..
