I have a Rheem Classic 80 furnace that would ignite but not stay lit. Cleaned the ignition sensor which was easy to get to and the flame sensor which was under the burner plate and it fired up and stayed lit. The flame sensor was about 6" under the burner plate. Easy to get out, but tough to get back in. Used the old piece of paper shim trick to get the screw to "stick" in the socket and it was much easier to position the screw and get it back where it belonged.

Sounds like you may have a bad thermocouple. Little unit/sensor at the pilot flame that reads the pilot light is on so that the gas will flow.Usually has a coiled small copper tube.

I have a rheem classic quiet 80 . furnace starts up but the igniter will not kick in to start the flame


This problem can be one of two things:

1) Bad igniter.

2) Control board not sending 120 volts to igniter.

You will need a multimeter to verify if the igniter is receiving 120 volts.

Rheem rgpe won't ignite. cleaned flame sensor - still won't light.


check to see if the hot surface igniter is coming on or if direct spark see if it is sparking to light if this is working then you are not getting gas from your gas valve. The board should be giving you code by blinking light. If you will count the blinks there should be a chart on the door to tell you what it means. HOPE THIS HELPS

Our rheem gas pack running on propane will turn not always ignite


have you cleaned the flame sensor located on the
far left side of the burners?. Watch it go through the
cycles.

Igniter glows, gas valve turns on and gas ignites. If it gets that far and shuts down, it sounds like a dirty
flame sensor,clean it with sand paper.

Won't ignite!!!


If the igniter is not sparking on the pilot assy the pilot will not ignite all the time. You or anyone needs to see if the spark is hitting the pilot assy. be careful not to get shocked. My best recomendation would be call a professional to check unit...

Rheem Furnace sometimes takes a couple of ignition cycles before


Try cleaning the flame sensor. It is located right besides the last burner. Looks like a thick piece of wire. Take steel wool and gently remove the carbon that has built up. Should only take 4 or 5 strokes. Let me know how it goes after that. ken
