Question about Weather King 10AJA3601AH Air Conditioner

Furnace fires for 10 seconds then cuts off

I have a forced air Weatherking. When I set the thermostat to activate the furnace, the ignitor will begin to glow, after about 10-15 seconds, you can hear the gas kick on. The gas ignites and everything functions as normal. After about 10 seconds the flames shut off, and the furnace tries to ignite again. It will keep doing this cycle for 2 or 3 or 10 attempts, then it will finally fire and stay on. Furnace will run to heat house to desired temp. Just randomly shuts off during start up. Like I said eventually it will stay lit and heat the house. Does anyone have a solution?

Why heater coils glow?


It sounds like you're describing one of two things. The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace, or the resistive heat strips in an electric furnace.

The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace lights the burners. This ignitor in modern furnaces serves the same purpose as the standing pilot flame did in older furnaces. It provides the required heat to ignite the gas at the burners. Without an ignition source, a gas-fired furnace cannot provide heat. When the ignitor is activated it will glow bright orange or yellow.

The resistive heat strips in an electric furnace actually provide the heat to a home or building. When the furnace turns on, the heat strips are activated and usually glow orange when they reach peak temperature. In almost all cases, the heat strips are not easily seen or accessed without removing covers or panels inside the furnace.

THE BURNER WONT LIGHT


The failure of the appliance to start at all can be one of the most worrying washer dryer problems. However, this may often just be due to the door not being closed properly. Try opening and closing the door to see if this makes a difference. Otherwise, there is likely to be a fault with the sensor or pressure pad that detects when the door is closed. Try wiping the door and the corresponding latch on the machine with a clean cloth before testing it again. It is also a good idea to check the seal around the door to ensure that it has not sustained any damage.
  1. Before you attempt to fix a furnace that won't start, make sure you know what kind of furnace you have. This ehow is strictly for a forced air, gas furnace. Check to make sure the furnace filter is clean. If not, replace the dirty filter with a clean filter. Also, check to make sure power to the furnace is on. Finally, make sure the gas supply to the furnace is open.
  2. If your furnace clicks on or initiates the start cycle, but does not fire up, you likely have a faulty or dirty ignitor/sensor. This is one of the most common furnace problems. Under normal conditions, the furnace is notified by the thermostat to click on, the ignitor gets red hot and then initiates the entire process of igniting the gas and blowing the hot air. Check the error codes in your furnace user manual to make sure you do not have a more serious problem.
  3. To fix the furnace that won't start, turn off the power to the furnace-and turn off the gas. Remove the front panel and look for the ignitor/sensor. Refer to your user manual to locate the ignitor. It is usually located near where the flames shoot out of the burners.

It does not fire at all times igniter works, I can hear the gas valve when opens, some times it fires for a minute and some times does not fire at all


Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad ignitor 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 ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout 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.

First floor of house is cold


The thermostat will turn your furnace on and off to satisfy the temperature setting at the location where the thermostat is located. If you move the thermostat to the first floor and set the thermostat at say seventy, it should keep the furnace on until the temperature near the thermostat hits seventy degrees.

  1. The sensor that tells the furnace whether the gas is lit has got build-up on it and is giving the furnace bad information.
  2. The flame sensor is often a single wire or rod that sticks up in the center of the flame.
  3. You can shut off the furnace and the gas and clean the sensor with some sandpaper.
If that still doesn't work, the sensor may need to be replaced.

Please rate this solution.

My furnace works intermittently.


You may have a dirty flame sensor. There are a number of other possible causes as well. Rheem/Ruud/Weatherking furnaces also have problems with the connection on the blower deck.
The flame sensor sometimes must be bypassed around the MOLEX CONNECTOR in the deck due to humidity.
Hope this helps.

Weatherking furnace


Easy to fix. Looking inside the burner box, you should see a rod that extend into the flame. Sand this rod with sand paper and try to start the furnace again. if this does not work, replace this part.
