Cozy Challenger Floor Furnace will not ignite

The 62,000 BTU floor furnace has a good pilot, thermostat, etc.
When the thermostat kicks on, or if it is bypassed, the burner will not start unless you give the valve a small tap.

SOURCE: cozy wall heater lights fine then goes out after 3 or 4 minutes

Make sure all the wire connections are good and tight. Next lift off the cover and look for a little thermal disc mounted up by top of the heat exchanger. Most have a re-set button but not all. If you have this ,by-pass it ,see if that solves the problem, if so it may be defective, or doing its job and you have a venting problem. If you don't have this and have changed the thermocouple (was it a copper tube with a fitting that screwed into the gas valve, or did it have 2 wires, that is a pilot generator, kind of same thing) make sure the probe is set correct, with the pilot flame heating the top 1/3rd of the probe. The only thing left is the gas valve.

SOURCE: Coleman Gravity Floor Furnace need millivolt gas valve & pilot ki

Go to www.grainger.com and look for a "power pile generator" this is a millivolt thermocouple that may be just what you need to make your heater work again

SOURCE: Cozy wall furnace burner will not light. Pilot

Hi, have done this to many times not to know. I will walk you through this. It is good that the pilot is lit. Go to the stat and remove cover. Don't worry as this is a milivolt unit, no voltage or such a small amount you wont even notice as this is why it is called milivolts.Take a small screw driver to remove the next section which is the thermostat and will expose the sub-base where you will find 2 wires connected to it. You may have 2 or 3 screws to take loose to get to this last section. Anyway, if you have a piece of insulated wire laying around, even old speaker wire will work, take it and touch the wire across the 2 terminals and hold. If the furnace comes on, the thermostat is faulty, and you will need to buy a new one. No power to shut down, and simple to change. Cost about $12.00 dollars. Try and get a heat only milivolt stat as they are much less expensive and will have less problems with them. Go to home DEPOT to get one, or O.C.S.H. will also carry them. Don't let the salesman talk you into buying a programable heat and cool stat, 24 volts as they will work, but cost more and you don't need it!! Look around even if you need to go to a wholesale Refrigeration, Air Conditioning, and Heating parts house. Tell them you need one for a unit in some apts you own, and you will pay cash as you want a cash account. They will only ask what job its for, and just tell them your name. This is not illegal and I wouldnt tell you this if it was!! You will still have to pay taxes but will get a wholesale price for it. I am sure it will fire up when you touch the 2 wires and prove stat is bad. For some reason it is not the stat, follow the 2 wires from the stat down to gas valve and jump the same 2 terminals there also. If it fires up, you will have a problem in the wires from the stat to heater and will need to be replaced. I don't think this is the case. But, on the chance it will not fire after you have done all of the steps I have had you do, then you have a faulty main gas valve(MGV) and will need to replace. This is all easy to repair.I am a 100% sure it will fire up when you jump the 2 wires together, and you will need the stat. Please let me know as I will be waiting for an update! Good Luck,
Shastalaker7
PS When you install the new stat, make sure it is Level.

SOURCE: Cozy Wall Gas Furnace Pilot won't stay lit

Hi, if you have replaced the thermocouple or thermopile generator, and it keeps going out, you will need to replace the gas valve. That's all it can be is the milivolt coil on the valve, trust me. I have been through this many times.
Sincerely,

SOURCE: The pilot light will not stay lit, I was told

Hi, this heater doesn't have a thermocouple, it uses a pilot generator which is more reliable so I doubt you need to change it out. First thing to check is that you have a clean "sharp" blue pilot, you should be able to hear it quietly roar. If it is yellow and appears "soft", the pilot need to be cleaned. The easiest way is to use a straw or tubing of some sort to blow into the pilot, gently tapping the pilot assembly. That should clean it up and heat the pilot generator properly. Tighten the the screw terminals at the control valve to assure good electrical connections and last but not least turn off the thermostat until you get a standing pilot. Good luck and stay warm.

Pilot and burner light then gas shut off model 7900


How many degrees before it reaches desired temp, does it shut off? A thermostat is designed to shut the furnace off a couple/ few degrees before it reaches set temp. It has what is called a heat anticipater, which shuts the burner down, and lets the blower use the remaining heat from the heat exchanger to bring it up to desired temp making it more efficient. If it is more than a few degrees, replace the thermostat. You can jump out the red and white wires to confirm the faulty thermostat. If by doing this, the furnace never shuts down, until you separate the red and white wires. That confirms a faulty thermostat. Hope this helps someone.

Gas conversion lp kit 8927 has 2 pilot orifices...I only need 1, correct?


The smallest pilot orifice is used for LP. Make sure you read the instructions thoroughly. Usually the gas valve pressure regulator is disabled and the burner orifices are also changed. Good luck and hope this helps.

Intalled an overhead 130K BTU Mr. Heater last


On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

Coleman presidential II furnace blower on and off


Sounds like the flame sensor. But it could be the thermostat. Is the furnace standing pilot or electronic spark or hot surface ignition. I would start by checking thermostat. Turn power off to furnace take thermostat off wall and take wires marked r & w and connect them together. Turn power back on if furnace works then change out thermostat.Most eclectronic ignition Furnaces have a flam sensor, You could take flame sensor out and clean it up with steel wool or wire brush. If you need anymore help just reply back .

Coleman Presidential II mobile home furnace. When burner lights the blower cycles on and off instead of blowing constant through burner cycle.


Is this furnace standing pilot or electronic ignition. If standing pilot i would check furnace filter then the thermastat. To test themostat first turn power off to furnace. Take thermostat off wall and take wires labled R & W and connect them together. If you have electronic ignition I would start with cleaning the flame sensor with steel wool or wire brush.If you have and more questions i will be glad to help.
