    I believe it may have been a build up of dust on the mercury switch on the T stat...but It did fail to light one time after that with a red light blinking on the module. I think it was 3 blinks. I also hear a strange click from solenoid on valve but it opens and shuts down properly (noisy though). T stat is new and glow plug.

    Cycles fine for half a dozen times and then codes to red solid light no blinking. Then you half to lower the T stat all the way down and back up to desired temp. Light goes out when you lower the Tstat and then it fires up when you raise it back up.

My furnace is 4 years old. It cycles but does not ignite


More info is needed.
When you say it "Cycles", where does that fall into the following sequence....
1. Call for heat
2. Inducer starts(exhaust)
3. Pressure switch closes( connected to inducer via hose)
4. Ignitor glows or sparks
5. Gas valve opens and burners light
Does the ignitor glow or spark at all?
Do you see the exhaust working?
Sometimes the small hose that runs from the exhaust housing to the pressure switch will get clogged. Blow it out and don't forget the inlet and outlet.

Arcoaire furnace ran out of propane and now wont ignite


Check along the gas supply line to the furnace and make sure there isn't a valve that is shut off. If you have a gas oven see if the ranges light and have gas. I'm assuming you've also turned on the gas supply at the furnace itself as well. Check that the furnace has electricity it won't be able to open the automatic valve let alone fire the igniter. My brand new furnace had a safety switch that went out 3 days after installation preventing it from lighting. You might contact Arcoaire about that. http://www.arcoaire.com/

Gas valve wont engage -weatherking furnace troubleshooting


Depends on the system,if it has 2 wire switch it can be bypassed,but only 1 time for each heating cycle if the system is using i pc board to operate the furnace,sometimes you can take the hose off and lightly suck and blow on it if the switch is stuck,but should have a pro check it,could be a blocked flue pipe or other dangerous problem,and could be a bad switch,did heating and cooling for 30 years

Goodman GMT045-3A Furnace. Furnace flue fan always on, glow plug hot, gas ignited, on for 20-30 seconds, click is heard, flame off, glow plug cools. Then cycle repeats over and over again. Sometimes...


Check filter to see if it is plugged. Has someone installed a new thermostat? If so, it may not have been installed properly. Sand off sensor to make it shiny, and be sure all supply and return registers are uncovered.

My furnace sometimes won't ignite. The blower will start to run, but the gas won't kick in. I have to unplug it and sometimes when I plug it back in - it will run a full cycle and heat up to the temp....


On a call for heat first your inducer motor starts if your furnace is equipped with one. Next a pressure switch closes and sends power to your ignitor it will glow or spark then the gas valve opens and you get fire now you have to prove flame to keep gas valve open this is accomplished by a flame sensor usually opposite end of ignitor. Let me know if this helps If you can watch it run and see it fail I would be more accurate with a diagnosis. Thanks

Miller gas furnace not firing but the fan turns on


The Miller furnaces sometimes will do that. Does this have surface ignitor that glows. Kill power to furnace for few seconds and turn it back on. See if it will go thri the cycle and see if coil glows. If not chances are coil is bad. Need to call service tech for free estimate. Rus

Comfortmaker errors


Have you checked the combustion air intake pipe for plugging, possibly a bird or something has gotten in and also check the flue vent pipe for any sags or low spots where condensate can collect and partially restruct the flue gases. If you have someone start the heating cycle with the furnace completely assembled, you can check the intake from the outside where it goes through the wall. It should have a fair pull when you put your hand near it. The exhaust pipe should blow fairly well as well. Then check the pipes along the entire length, if the exhaust is partially plugged with condensate, you may hear the gurgling noise.
