This could be due to a weak igniter which is not getting hot enough to ignite the gas, or the gas valve is not opening to allow gas to flow. First thing is verify if the gas valve is receiving 24 volts at the valve terminals, if not the board is bad, if it is receiving voltage the gas valve may be bad.

Yes, the flame sensor is part of the intermittent pilot assembly. Check the following: make sure all grounding wires are secure and no corrosion is built up on them. Clean or replace the pilot assembly, also clean out the orifice with a very small drill. Make sure the sensor is in the flame and make sure the pilot tube is not leaking gas reducing the gas pressure at the pilot.

If it continues, you will have to replace the ignition control.

Check the roll out switch(s) and the lock out switches. They are a small disc looking about the size of a nickle, with with 2 wires attached on them. There will be a re-set button in the middle that resembles a small peg. Push this in to re-set. As the glow coil shorted out, the fuse on the control board may have blown. On the newer furnaces find the main board and look for a car type fuse. If blown, replace. You also have the symptoms of a bad limit switch, by the clicking noise (the heat fan relay) and the blower fan running instantlly.

OK, if the furnace is not lighting for even a few seconds, you have either a bad gas valve, bad wire, bad control module or no gas. The pressure switch is not the issue. Check all wires to the gas valve and look for 24 volts across them when the ignitor glows and you hear the click. Then test for 24 volts to ground. It could be a bad ground wire.

Test while the unit is firing with a meter. you should have 24 volts going to gas valve. If you do and no gas is coming out, you have a bad gas valve. You will need a gas pressure test kit to install a new one correctly.

SOURCE: goodman furnace won't ignite. No glow from ignitor.

yes if the ignitor has a very small crack on it it will not work replace it and see if it works but do not touch the end that glows when you put it in as the grease from your finger s will stop it working

Is the igniter receiving 120 volts after the pressure switch closes? If not, either the board is bad or the pressure switch is open

Ignitor glows but short cycles


Ignitors don't "blow flames". But a defective ignitor can glow but not draw enough current to allow the gas valve to open to the burners.
Replace the ignitor. It's the "weakest link" and most likely part to wear out through use in the ignition system.

I HAVE PROBLEM WITH HEATER IS SWOING 1F IN THE SCREEN


YOur 1f code is actually a IF code which stands for "ignition failure".
This can be caused by many things, but the most likely is either the ignitor has failed, or the flame sensor has failed.

Make sure the gas manual gas valve is open. Remove from panel so that you can see the ignitor.
Turn off power, then turn back on. After 90 seconds, the ignitor should start to glow red hot. If this is not occuring, then it is likely the ignitor or ignitor wiring.

If the ignitor does glow, then the heater ignites, but still goes off showing the IF code, then it is the flame sensor.

If the ignitor glows, and the heater does not ignite, it is likely the gas valve or ignition control.

As stated above, the ignitor is most likely.

How to check the igniter (continuity?)


If there is power to the ignitor and it does not glow the ignitor is bad. If it does glow,place a clamp on amp meter over one wire of the ignitor and turn the circuit on. If the ignitor reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.
If the ignitor glows and registers 3 amps or more you must check the flame sensor for correct operation. If the ignitor and flame sensor are both good,replace the gas valve coils.

Burner does not ignite


First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.
