Question about Goodman GDS80703ANA Open Flame Mid-Size Heater

1 Answer

My furnace shuts off sometimes after the first 20-30 seconds.

Sometimes my gas good man furnace starts running then like after 20-30 seconds everything shuts down. I changed the flame sensor with a new one and I still have sometimes the same problem. After that I turn the power switch off then on. It starts working again. Is there any reason why this is happening? Anything I can do to fix it? The furnace is only 6 years old.

    My Greenway F/P started to shut itself off > Also usually you had to turn on the heat and flame separately but they started to come on simutaneously, a couple of days before it stopped working.

The two most common reasons I have found for this are listed below. You have already addressed the third one.

1) Grounding issue. This can be difficult to find but easy to diagnose. Try using a volt meter or even just a piece of wire. Touch one end to an unpainted surface of the interior furnace cabinet and the other end to the sheet metal plenum or other ground. If the symptoms go away then you have diagnosed the problem and need to find the faulty ground.

2) Pressure in the flu. Check to make sure that the flu vent pipe is not clogged or even partially filled with debris. The small rubber hose that connects to the switch from the inducer blower motor may be clogged. Also check the orifice on the inducer motor side. You can clear this with a paper clip. Water (condensation) in the inducer motor housing or pressure switch can cause a failure too. Rarely is the pressure switch itself bad. This usually will only happen if it has been physically damaged or soaked. Best of luck.

How do I light pilot light?


There should not be a pilot on a direct vent furnace. When you turn up the thermostat for heat the 1st thing to happen is a venter motor should start, it should vent for approximately 45 seconds, the air switch will verify a vacuum in the burner box, then a spark igniter should start clicking to start the pilot, then the flame rod will verify the pilot, the igniter will stop clicking, and the main burner will ignite and remain on until the thermostat has satisfied the set point. These guideline steps must be satisfied before the controller advances to the next step. The 1st step is the venter motor running, sometimes the motor will stick over the summer months, spin it manually to unstick it. PS, nothing runs if the fan door cover is open, as that shuts down the power to the whole furnace.

My York furnace sometimes doesn't completely ignite


A noisy inducer probably is headed for replacement.

The igniter can produce a healthy glow and still be defective. Mine had to be replaced with a new, improved one.

The thermocouple could be defective even though it seems to open the gas valve when it should.

The heat sensor in the bonnet could be defective. That controls main blower operation.

The heat exchanger could be cracked.

Furnace begins the process of starting up then 5 seconds later it turns off. It does this repeatedly, sometimes for like an hour then it works fine.


Easy fix. Furnace is not getting confirmation of ignition. Remove the flame sensor and clean it with sand paper. re-install it and retry as seen in this video:

Furnace is not blowing hot air. sometimes the gas


depending on age, it is probably the thermocouple, or the flame sensor that is dirty.

I have a goodman 6mnte080-4. Home had power failure and furnace went to working intermittently. led is on 8 flash- ignitor or improper ground.. sometimes runs through full cycle--sometimes hot surface...


Check out the green wire going to the gas valve for proper ground,and also check all wires for good connections......... for the intermitting start / stopping and sand the fame sensor pin, this should do the trick.

Furnace runs OK, but blower runs again a few seconds later


Could be a defective thermostat in the plenum.
When a gas furnace shuts down the fan(blower) will run until the plenum cools to the safe range. Usually 1 and 1/2 minutes.
Intermittent operation is a defective thermostat or relay.

  1. The sensor that tells the furnace whether the gas is lit has got build-up on it and is giving the furnace bad information.
  2. The flame sensor is often a single wire or rod that sticks up in the center of the flame.
  3. You can shut off the furnace and the gas and clean the sensor with some sandpaper.
If that still doesn't work, the sensor may need to be replaced.
