Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

A 2 month old Goodman GMH95 natural gas furnace has been working properly until tonight. Now it starts up properly, but after 30 seconds (and right when the cirulator fan kicks on) it shuts the gas valve stopping the flame. LED light flashes 8 times, which is not an option on the trouble shooting guide. Unit will retry every few minutes and cycles this way over and over. It appears the control module is not receiving the gas flame detection signal. What do we need to do?

Goodman's control boards are very sensitive as well as the connections to the gas valves. Check the wires and make sure they are snug and tight. With it being only 2 months old, I doubt the board is bad or the flame sensor(unless it is a used system). So I would just snug and wiggle the wires on the board and the gas valve and try that.

We have a Coleman Electric Furnace Serial # AOL6042086, Model # AHP36C3XH21A and the fan runs constantly, will not shut off. We have replaced the thermostat and just replaced the control board. We h


I wish I was a furnace expert but I will give a push in the right direction. When a gas/electric fan runs it has two speeds. When you turn on the FAN ON switch it should run at the slower speed. If it doesn't turn on or turn off again when you turn it back you have a wiring problem or a thermostat problem. Make sure the thermostat is compatible with your unit and wired properly (on both ends). The other time the fan runs is "in session" when heat or cooling is applied to the system. It should run until the system finishes the cycle then a bit more (30 seconds or 1 minute) to blow the treated air completely through the ducts. If it doesn't stop then you may have a bad fan time delay or relay. Check parts for your model and various appliance repair site online.

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.

I have a goodman furnace, the ignitor glows gas lights and then burns only a short time and then goes out, this hapens 3 times then furnace cycles out and I get a blinking light,


Do you have Natural Gas, or LP Gas (Propane)
Do you have any other gas appliances?- like an oven?
Do you have gas at the other appliances?

The Ignitor getting bright, and cycling 3 times is a normal number of 'LIGHT' attempts -- and shows that you do have a good ignitor- That is important! and that is GOOD!

However-- it sounds like you have NO GAS.-- Is that possible?
If you do have gas in the kitchen, then either the manual Shut off valve is shut to this appliance, or the main gas valve is not opening --- for any of a number of reasons-

Tell us more about what you do have in other appliances.

My goodman furnace keeps lighting for about 10 seconds than goes out lots of clicking sounds


Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad igniter what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. Thermostat calls for heat.
2. Draft inducer motor starts.
3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes.
4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas.
Solution: You probably need to purchase and install a new igniter. I would suggest that you inspect your igniter closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the igniter with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, roll-out switch problem. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor. If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

I installed Goodman equipment in my new house, but i will be using propane for heat and the furnace gas valve is for natural gas. I have heard that there is retrofit kit to conver the valves to propane.


there should be a supply house or a supply store that deals only with heating and air conditioning they should be able to help you . but i believe you need your epa license

Code #33 on Bryant 355MAV 90i Furnace


'Limit or flame rollout switch is open'. In my case, the flame rollout switch had tripped due to an overheating? I had to push the button between the wire leads to reset the switch. Then when I turned the power back on, the furnace started up like normal.

Why did the switch overheat and trip? My current theory is that there was a rubber grommet around a pipe near the switch that had slid down and was no longer sealing the furnace?
