    the ignighter trysto start the propane but it is like there is none there to ignight.i had the heat pump on then switched it to furnace and it worked for two cycles then stoped ignighting again.

  • tlodolce Dec 27, 2008

    the gas line looks ok. i put soapy water on every thing and there were no leaks.

  • tlodolce Dec 27, 2008

    the control valve makes sence but the outside temp hsa risen and the furnace runs fine. at one point this morning i smelled propane and the ignighter was working and there was no ignition. the fan was running blowing cold air. now it seems fine. is it possible the control valve is getting too cold to work or could it be the thermistate not working properly?

  • tlodolce Dec 27, 2008

    could the control get too cold too work at night or could the thermastate be operating incorrectly?

  • tlodolce Dec 27, 2008

    im going to replace the valve and see if that is the problem. ill let you know tomorrow,if i freez tonight and get into it again with the wife ill let you know thqt too.

What you need to do is make sure that you are delivering enough pressure to the gas

    first thing to do is make sure that you tanks are full that the pressure regulator is operating properly. whenever the propane boils off it can cool the tank causing the pessure to drop inside of the tank then the furnace won't fire properly and lock out, sometimes the regulators stick but i don't think that is your case here. wrap the tank so that the ambient temperature does't effect the operation. Good Luck.

Hi
Try turning the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system.
if not you may have a defective Control board and you will need to have a HANDS on tech to diagnose these parts to be sure! They will have the diagnose equipment !

You have one of 2 problems. either the ignitor is going bad to where it doesnt always get hot enought to lite the gas or the flame sensor is bad.. but since you said its not igniting then you are looking at 99.9 % chance of it being the itgnitor.

Hello tlodolce

Have you checked the gas line, perhaps it is freezing or is getting old and needs to be replaced. Let me know what you find when you look into this.

U will need to replace the control valve (or it's voltage supply transformer) for the gas to the burners, it is defective, u said the igniter comes on, this means the solenoid in the gas valve has been sent a signal to open but doesn't do so. Also check the transformer for the control valve voltage supply, if it is defective then the the solenoid has no power, but in most cases it is the valve and not the transformer.

I need to know if a mercury thermostat is bad will it allow the ac to come on but not the heater


need to know what thermostat you are referring to
the coolant thermostat has no connection to the ac system
if it is the ac thermostat the it maintains the cabin temperature by activating the ac compressor as required
if you are referring to climate control then that controls the heater flow to keep the ac temperature at a set temperature with the ac compressor operating all the time
so as an answer to you question , check the climate control module

My thermostat is set on 68 degrees and it shows room temperature is 68, but the furnace still kickson, Honeywell said it has a 1 degree difference. so what's the problem then?


Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

No steam coming out from steam cleaner


I know its a silly question but is it plugged in? and does it have water in it? Is there any lights on it to show that power is on? Have you plugged it in elsewhere? If no power light on check the fuse in the plug, only replace it with one of the same rating. If this cures the problem and the power light is on, it should be working, if it blows the fuse again then it has a short and needs repairing or replacing
