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.

Rheem super quiet 80 turns on lights up for 5 or 6 seconds then shuts down then repeats once i replaced the flame sensor still does same thing?


Three possible problems come to mind. A dying inducer motor, or a partially obstructed exhaust vent could do that; bypass your pressure switch to find out. Also, and this one is trickier, it is possible that the flame isn't hitting the flame sensor just right. Adjusting those brackets can be a pain, and there is no easy test to eliminate that. Finally, real or perceived overheating of the exchanger can cause short-cycling. A bad high limit can do that, or you can run your unit fan on medium or high windings to trick it for now.

I would try testing in that order.

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

RHEEM CLASSIC QUIET 80 HEATER MODEL RGLN-07EAMER AUTO INGITER WORKS BUT BURNER WILL LIGHT AND GO OUT 2 SECONDS AFTER LIGHTING. WHAT SHOULD I TRY?


Hello, check the flame sensor, this is a metal rod on the opposite side of the igniter. Turn off power to the furnace remove flame sensor and clean it up with some steel wool, then reinstall and turn power back on to the furnace.

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.

Sounds like it could be a dirty or bad flame sensor.
When the burner lights ,there is a flame sensor in the flame and it is suppose to sense the flame and send a signal back to the control board which will keep the gas valve open, if it gets dirty or is bad it doesn't send the signal back to the board and the board will shut the gas valve off and after three tries it will lock out the furnace and you have to reset it to get it to work again.
The flame sensor looks like a wire and it's in the flame usually it will get gas deposits on it, then it won't work.
You can clean this sensor with an extra fine piece of steel wool, but before you attempt to do this DISCONNECT ALL POWER TO THE FURNACE.

Rheem powervent ignites then goes out, electronic ignition.


Sounds like a bad thermocouple. This part sends a millivolt signal to keep the gas valve open but shuts it off when it cools - or if something goes wrong with the ignighter - to prevent fires. It's easy to replace and not super expensive. See your local Rheem dealer.
