These old units have a simple gas valve and a separate regulator. Your best bet may be to replace the gas valve to something more modern. Trouble shooting this most likely be a waste of time, as parts probably aren't available, other than the thermostat. by-pass it, (connect the 2 wires together) and see if it comes on. The blower shouldn't stop the burner to come on. Sounds like the gas company doesn't want to crawl under there to light it.

SOURCE: goodman gds80703 turns on and off intermittendly 3 light blinks

There will be a diagnostic code that will blink on the control board. Look thru the clear window at the control board after the unit does not light up. On the reverse of the front panel, you will find a wiring diagram and in that area there will be a diagnostic code table. Sounds like a bad gas valve.

Ward Floor Heater, Model 570 EDR, works but is outputting much less heat than normal. Any information about where to look, parts I might need, etc would be greatly appreciated.


"The valve stem labeled Hot at 12 oclock and Off at 3 oclock,"
Is probably the problem. I'd try wd-40 overnight to see if it would free up the valve. It worked on a similar problem outside gas grill valve.

Just need to know how to light the pilot on a Montgomery Ward wall furnace model sfb-50219


I can't speak to the specific model but with most pilot lights, there is a switch setting or button for lighting. If you release that switch or button too soon, the pilot will not remain light. Hold the switch or button ON while you light the pilot. Keep holding the switch or button for about a minute until the heat sensor is sufficiently warmed that the pilot light stays on. Good luck.

Lawn Mower wont start


You need to obtain a manual for Briggs & Stratten engines. All the info you need will be in it. The most common cause for non starting in these engines is "Tight Tappets" Wether it's an OHV or the old "L" head engine, because they rev and work so hard, the valves seat themselves deeper into their seat which reduces the valve clearance. There is no adjustment on the older "L" engines, so you have to remove metal from either the valve stem, ot the lifter itself. I have in the past done this in situ with a point file, but it is a tedious job. Otherwise you must remove the head and take out the valves and grind the stems. A tricky task and probably should be done by a mechanic.

Furnace wont turn on pilot light is on thermostate works


How do you know the thermostat works? Can you turn the fan setting to on and the fan comes on?
Have you had the door off lately (to light the pilot)? If so then make sure the door is back on correctly as the unit may not run if door is not on right.
