Heater won't turn on even with a good HSI


Remove at least one of the wires going to that solenoid on the gas valve. Check for continuity between the 2 legs of the solenoid. If you cannot get a reading then you have a bad valve. If you indeed do have continuity start the furnace and see if voltage is going to the valve. If you have no voltage going to the valve then you could have a bad board. If voltage is going to the valve then the gas valve has failed internally or you ain't paid the gas bill. LOL.

50E47-70 unit intermittent failure. HSI glows, gas valve clicks, but burner does not light. Cycles several times but does not light then flue fan continues to run until furnace shut off. Sometimes...


Hello, sometimes even though the igniter is glowing it can be weak and not able to ignite the gas. Also, since the gas valve is clicking that means that it is receiving 24 volts but it is also possible that gas valve is sticking and not allowing gas to flow to tne buners everytime.

I have an amana furnace and it will not kick on. When the switch is turned on the furnace will try to run but won't warm up and blow. Does it have a pilot light?? or a reset button??


Try this----turn furnace off at stat and unplug furnace for 10 minutes. Plug it back in, the combustion and blower motor may both kick on for 2 minutes or so or not. Turn t-stat to heat and turn up stat to highest setting. Hurry out to furnace and you should hear the combustion motor(little motor piped to flue) kick on, then wait for a "click" next you should see a glow from the igniton element, then another click, next will be the gas valve opening. If no ignition, it will try 3 times and then lock ur *** out, and just turn on the blower just as a precaution. If you dont see the glow plug glowing after the first click, replace the $20 glow plug and you should be good to go. The glow plugs crack, and this is what breaks the connection. If you gas valve has a knob, and says pilot----turn the valve to pilot, push down on the knob, light the pilot and hold down knob for 2 minutes to heat up flame sensor. Make sure the t-stat is all the way down or off. After 2 minutes of holding pilot knob down, let go and your pilot should be still lit, if it is, then turn gas valve to ON and then turn t-stat up to kick on furnace. If ur pilot doesn't stay lit, get a new thermal couple and replace it-$12 bucks. Good luck and let me know how it went. azeddysac@yahoo.com

Furnace glow plug lights but main burner doesn't go on


Hi, on a call for heat from your thermostat, you get a signal to your ignitor module to send voltage to your pilot glow plug. As it glows it sends a signal back through the flame sensor to tell the MGV, (main gas valve) to open and start the burners. When this glow plug glows, you should here a click at the gas valve as 24 volts is sent to it to open. Unless the gas is off for some reason, which I doubt you turned it off, the gas valve is shorted out. You might want to try this first, with the power off the flame sensor that is beside this glow plug as we call it may be dirty and not sending a signal back to open this valve. It is about 4 to 6" long and round, made of porcelin with a metal tip on the end. Take a piece of sanding cloth or steel wool and clean the tip, so it gets nice and hot from the glow plug. Turn the power back on and cycle the thermostat on heat again. The inducer motor will start first, then close the pressure switch and the plug will glow. After this, it will send a signal back to the module to open the gas valve. Hopefully this is the problem, just a dirty flame sensor. If that didn't do it, the gas valve is bad and will need to be replaced. Please rate me on this as I know you will be kind. If its a dirty flame sensor, you should be up and running in no time at all.

Hello Flame rod should have done the trick.Make sure the rod & the control are GROUNDED (earth).Make sure the rod is not touching anything & in the gas flame.

Gas valve lockout


It means that the furnace isn't igniting and for safety the control board is preventing the gas valve from opening. Turn off the power to the furnace for a few seconds then observe what the furnace does in heat mode. Some furnaces will run the blower for a minute after you power it back up. After that see if the furnace tries to come on. If you are still getting the code then one of you high temp limit or roll out switches has tripped. Now is the time for a service tech. Make sure that you check you filter and air flow too. Low air flow means the furnace may be over heating.
The other thing is the hot surface igniter. Look closely at it with the power off. Do you see a white spot on the element or a crack. If so the HSI is bad. It's an easy replacement but DO NOT touch the carbon element with your fingers and be very careful handling it as it is EXTREMELY fragile.

These furnaces goes thru 4--steps for complete run time.... step-1, the small draft inducer blower motor blows and prove thru the small air tube that sucks a switch close to tell the circuit board to go to step-2......the glow plug glows for 15 seconds and step 3 the gas valve opens and dump gas in the venturi tubes and lights off the glow plug and proves thru a flame sensor (pin with 1 electrical wire connection) on the last venturi tube which tells the circuit board to go to the last step 4--, to turn on the main blower fan after 90 seconds!. Where ever it stops at then thats where your problem is!

yes! The furnace goes through 4--steps for complete run time. Step -1 the small vent fan comes on, and prove it thru the small rubber tube that sucks the switch close and tells the c.b. its turnning, Step 2.. the glow plug glow and 08 seconds later, Step -3 then the gas valve open and dump in gas ,which ignites and heat up the box. and proves it got flame through a flame sensor (pin) sticking in the flame .& Step -4, the box heats up to a predetermined temp. and turn on the fan! thats all. Thank-you-very-much!
