Re: Weather King Acclaim 2 Gas furnace efilters
If your furnace is easily accessed in the basement or a closet etc. then likely the filters are located either in the bloer compaertment (the small panel on the furnace) or in the ductwork attached to the furnace. There should be a removable cover. The size varies dedending on the size of your system. When you remove the old one it should be printed on it or you can measure it. If your furnace is in the attic or a crawl space then you probably have filter grill(s) in your return air. Usually centrally located in the home. Filters should be changed as needed depending on how you use your system but usually every 30-90 days.

At the opposite side of the burners from the igniter there is a small metal probe/rod situated where the flame would blow across it during operation. This rod is for flame verification so the gas valve will know that the gas is being ignited. Often that probe will get carbon built up on it which will cause the furnace to light but then abruptly shut off because "the probe doesn't know there is a flame there". A fine grit sandpaper works well to restore it's conductive ability. However, if the furnace runs for a while before it shuts off you could very well have an obstruction in the vent pipe or an obstructed indoor coil. If cleaning the flamerod doesn't remedy the problem, I strongly recommend a qualified serviceperson look at it! The furnace could well be turning itself off because something is getting too hot and coming back on when it cools. Good luck.
Wow, about the only thing you have not looked at is the thermostat. Have you had the gas pressure tested? Next time it quits, Ohm out the gas valve to see if it has a bad coil. I have in the past put on the gas valve one of thoes light probes and had to watch it to see when power went out. I found out it was a bad circuit board. Hope this helps.
Wow, this is a new one on me! Are you using true OEM parts for your source? If not, you may be getting sub standard parts. There are some companies that use generic parts and this isn't a good thing to do sometimes. Weatherking is a Rheem/Ruud product.
