Yes, you need to have at least 120volts and make sure your generater can power at least 3000 watts min not peak.
if you have an extension cord and must find the supply to the furnace
then splice the cord to the supply
then plug it in and there you go.

SOURCE: no air flow from duct on forced air unit

If there is no air coming through all of ducts, there are several things to consider. If you turn your thermostat to fan on, does air come out? If so you may have a switching|thermostat problem. May need to change out, not really hard you just have to turn off electric mark wires as you remove and turn back on. If nothing changed, make sure the circuit breaker has tripped, sometimes its hard to tell so flip it all the way off then back on. Now try to turn on again. If it comes on you need to find out why it's tripping the breaker, merely resetting it can pose a danger for the future. Professionally servicing the unit is important to the longevity of the unit. Now if you find out that unit is coming on but no air is coming out, it could well be that a duct has blown free and is spilling into attic or crawl space. Sometimes the unit forms an ice block in the evaporative area of the unit. In this case it would need quite some time off to thaw. Also the fan motor may be burned out. In that case you would hear part of the unit working with no output. These are a few of the most common problems with this condition.Most of which needs to be addressed by a Tech

York gas furnace pilot lights and begins heat cycle but burner quickly goes out and system continues to run blowing cold air


There is a flame sensor that holds the gas valve open when there is a flame present. Heat generates about 10 to 15 milivolts to do this. Make sure the side of the flame is touching the sensor. If it looks ok Tighten the fitting that holds the sensor to the gas valve. If it still won't stay lit after all that then replace the sensor. They do fail with time.

The pilot is on and it looks good. I turn the thermostat up but nothing more happens.


Despite the simplicity of a Millivolt system,troubleshooting them is often not as simple, if you go by the book using a Volt/Ohm meter to test the generator and gas valve. The Pilot Generators are less tricky as they all put out 750 mv or 3/4 of a volt out of the system, in the system is where each result will be specific according to what gas valve is used, not all gas valves have the same ohm's values, and many newer gas valves cannot be ohmed due to the design!
They will read open every one of them.
The way to make it simple and assure you never get any call backs
is to take a AA battery and attach a wire to each end of the battery,
Radio shack sells battery boxes with leads built in for several dollars.
Remove the 2 leads from the gas valve coming from the pilot generator and replace them with the AA battery leads If the gas valve operates normally via battery, it is a good gas valve, if not it is bad.
If you apply voltage to the gas valve and get zero amp draw,the gas valve is bad. Do not leave the battery in place and operate the unit in this manner unless you are able to be diligently watching it, never sleep or leave etc, it is strictly for emergency use or testing.
Old time units had no pilot safety, the pilot valve was manually operated just like a garden hose, if the wind blew it out it still kept coming, however as natural gas is lighter than air it will vent if it is allowed to via the flue, propane units must have 100% safety for the pilots operation as propane is heavier than air and will not vent, it settles in the lowest spot making propane more dangerous in that respect than natural gas is.
750 mv is 3/4 of 1 volt, not much power, the thermopile makes this power by having 2 dissimilar metals co joined in the end of the thermopiles that impinges the pilot flame.
A temperature differential must be maintained across the thermopiles end, if the entire end of the thermopile is hot the power will drop off or stop all together, thus extinguishing the pilot.
Many homeowners make the mistake of setting the thermopile too far into the flame, heating the entire end, not just the top 1/3 portion thinking this will bake it into submission, or force it to make power when in reality it does the opposite.

I'm having a similar problem. My water heater is Eternal GU195S. It will heat up the water it's in the tank so I will get hot water for a few minutes. Then whenever the system tried to heat up on-demand, it will not heat up and gave E02 error. If I stopped drawing water, the E02 error will go away and the temp setting I had will come back on. What could be the problem? I currently took it out of service and set it up outside my work shop for testing. Thanks.

Trouble with waterheater


DO NOT USE THIS HEATER UNTIL IT HAS BEEN CHECKED OUT BY A PROFESSIONAL!

Most all gas appliances can use propane or natural gas, but they ship from the factory with orifices for one or the other.

Propane is rated at 11 iwg, natural gas at 7 iwg (where iwg=inches water gauge. 27 iwg=1 psig) (it takes a different regulator spring to handle this small difference in pressure.

A propane orifice will be smaller than a natural gas orifice.

The store that you bought the water heater should know what they sold you, and know if they have a kit to convert the regulator and orifices.
