Question about Goodman Heating & Cooling
Trying to light the furnace for the heater
We have not lit pilot lights ourselves since 1978 when they outlawed standing pilots in Ca for furnaces. We have electronic ignitions of spark oror hot surface ignition, neither of which can be manually lit.
Do you get any fan action if you flip the fan on from auto?if so, you have power and 24v control power too, I would start there.

NO, the furnace has an electronic ignition system, if it is new than 15 years. Your ignitor may have failed. Depending on your location, this is approximately a 180.00 repair for a service techician to come and install the part. This is parts and labour, not just the part. The part is approximately 50-90 dollars, depending on location.

There may not be a call for heat being registered by the control board. Take the R and W terminals on the control board and put a jumper between the two. If the heater starts, you have either a broken thermostat wire or a bad thermostat or connection.

This model is equiped with a diagnostic error control. Take off the front panels and look for a wiring diagram pasted on the reverse side of the panels. On this diagram there will be a chart telling you what 4 blinks represent and where to start looking for the issue. I suspect the air filter may be dirty or the pressure switch may be bad, however make sure the condensate hoses are free of any debris. Good luck to you!

from my experience with goodman units ,it could have been a gas supply problem there are so many protective sensors that i dont think it is the unit by the way is it electronic ignitor or pilot

Hello,sounds like you have a dirty flame sensor. This is a metal rod on the oppositenside of the hot surface ignitor. turn off power to the furnace and remove the flame sensor, then use steel wool and clean the flame sensor and reinstall. Next turn back power to Furnace.
