My goodman furnacs says my limit switch is bad blower works but does not ignite .....? its modle gmt070-3 and where is it located


There are several limit switches in the unit there in various places in burner compartment. One on blower housing . One thing that I would try is replaceing your filter and turn the power off to the furnace and try starting the system after power is D/C for 5 minutes.

30roof top unit combustion blower comes on but does not ignite ignitors are new


Hi, when the combustion motor comes on, it should or will have a poly type tube on this motor that runs over to a pressure switch. This switch is where the other end of the hose connects. These switches get stuck open at times and have to be broke free by removing one end of the tube and blowing through it. This is a silver looking switch, could be different, but the contact in this switch will stick open causing the unit not to fire up. There is a sequence of operation on these units, 1st the combustion motor will pressurize the box and send pressure to the switch which closes. Once the switch closes, it will send 24 volts to the ignitor module to open the main gas vale to fire the burners. This is just one of several safety switches. This will solve your problem. You can also check this switch by jumping across it with a piece of insulated wire from terminal to terminal. It will fire right up.

Goodman GS9 propane furnace inducer motor runs continuously


it sounds like the low temp limit switch, the one that cools the furnace down with the burner off and the thermostat open, when it cools to a point the fan stops, the other switch in burner area turns burner off/on, hope this helps

Gas cooktop starter continues firing


Turn your gas valve on, but leave your unit unplugged for a few days. You can light your burners in the meantime with a lighter so you can cook. Usually this problem is caused by moisture getting into one of your ignitor switches which are under your burner knobs. Most of the time the switch dries out and you can plug your unit back in after a few days. If it still keeps firing then you will have to replace one or more of your ignitor switches. Usually a very difficult job as most gas cooktops are now sealed burner units which means the top of your cooktop is bolted down to the burners with several screws or nuts that heat up with usage and become almost impossible to remove, without having to drill out the screws, or chiseling off the nuts. Be careful of boilovers or cleaning around the knobs with too much water to prevent this from happening again. Also get a surge protector at least 2000 joules or higher to prevent damage to you spark module. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Startup cycle goes fine. All lights(power, pressure, thermostat, and heater) sequence correctly. After ignition, heater fires up(seen through viewing window) but then blows out 15 seconds later when fan...


If you are getting fire and have an eo5 this is a reading for no flame so it is not reading the flame. What you probally have is small spider webs in your burner orfaces. You will need to pull the burners out and with a small wire or the like clear the gas orfaces going to the burners. These little webs can divert the gas to the main burners and keep it from the burner that reads the flame. Your heater will come on with a big woosh as the gas needs to come from other burners to fire. I hope this helps. Good luck

Unit will try three times to start then shut down


Make sure the exhaust fan is running.You say it fires up and then cut off.Does the main burner come on just the pilot?If it's just the pilot then I would say you need to replace sense that senser the pilot lite.Because onces that senser the flame the main gas vavle should open.for give me for my mis spelling.
