My furnace is a Rheem has issues of pilot light not staying lite the flame blows out won't stay on long enough to heat house


First thing I do, especially if the furnace is an older one, is to light a match or long end lighter(like for BBQ pits), hold it inside the opening on the front of the furnace heat exchanger, where you would normally see the burner flames, then turn on the fan only. If you see the "flame dance/flame disturbance", then that furnace may be unsafe due to a cracked heat exchanger. Holes or cracks in heat exchanger will blow out the pilot by allowing the air that we breathe to enter the heat exchanger and mix with the combustion process. AND may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. In that scenario, I would call in a professional. Now if it's not a heat exchanger issue, the flue pipe may have a back draft issue. Again, call a professional! Play it safe with that issue. Hope this helps!

Pilot on my gas furnace won't stay lit


Try cleaning the thermocouple tip if you can see ashes or any buildup on it. If you know the wind isn't blowing it out (had mine blow out from high winds before) then I would change the thermocouple before anything else.

Light pilot reset


If yours is a high-efficiency furnace, you should hear the stack blower start running when your thermostat calls for heat. Next, the igniter should start to glow and remain glowing until the thermocouple opens the gas valve and allows gas to flow to the main burner. The main burner lights and burns until sufficient heat is generated for the main blower to turn on and blow warm air through your house. If any action does not occur in the order described, repairs are in order.

Make sure the blower access panels are on firmly. There is a safety switch on most gas furnaces that will prevent operation in the event the blower access panel is not on or loosened. Also make sure a power switch (sometimes looks like a light switch) was not accidentally left "off". :-)

I hope you find this to be very helpful moving forward.

If the blower access panel is not the problem, let us know and we'll dig deeper. :-)

We have a Janitrol PGB 048125-1 unit and it is not blowing heat. the fan comes on when in fan only mode on thermostat but once we turn it to auto it goes off. we cannot get the unit to blow hot air. does...


If the unit is newer than 10 years I guess there will be no pilot light per sey. You will have to look at it to tell for sure. Here it is supposed to work. When there is a call for heat the thermostat will close and send a signal to the furnace to start the exhaust blower. When the blower gets up to speed, it closes a pressure switch that will send voltage to the gas valve and to the igniter. The igniter glows or sparks lighting the pilot. Once the pilot lights it sends a signal that all is well, then the gas valve opens up more and the burner(s) light. There is a sensor that tells the control board when the flame has stayed lit. Once that is done, after a period of time or as the heat exchanger gets to a specific temperature, it will turn on the room air blower and blow hot air. Once the thermostat has been satisfied, the furnace turns off. Now, get in front of the furnace and with the door panels off (you may need to tape down the door safety switch to make this work) watch the furnace go thru each step I described. Once you see where the problem is, you can start the proceed of repair. There may even be a flashing light indicating a problem. Find the wiring diagram on the furnace and look for a diagnostic chart and compare the number of blinks to this chart.

There is no pilot light, its electronic start now.
like your stove should be.
you can trigger the furnace by shorting out the correct combo on the thermostat but not advised unless you know the right ones.
be sure the power is on the the transformer that provides power to the thermostat.
though that may be contained within the furnace now days.
just check your fuse box and call a tech.
