    It sounds as if the blower just starts and stops right after it reaches temp and shuts down ( on avg. about three times, less than second each). the ignition does not go off

    When you say it cycles are you saying that the flames come on for a few seconds, shut off three times. Then the blower comes on for a period before it tries to ignite again?

What kind of ignition is it? If it is a Hot surface igniter(glow coil) look for a small, maybe 3-4 inch long rod that is mounted to or near the burner. It's probably on the burner on the side away from the igniter and would be in the flame when the burner comes on. Clean it with sand paper. It's a flame sensor and the igniter is sending a small amount of voltage through the flame(fire is a conductor) to the sensor and if it's dirty it won't complete the circuit. If after cleaning it works then great you need to get a new one within a few days. If it doesn't work then the igniter is probably weak and needs replacing but it could be something else so I would call for service instead of guessing.

Ruud 90+ Model UGRA 10EZAJS Trips Out


Check for condensation buildup in the Induction Blower housing. The condensate tubes or canister may be blocked and causing the diaphragm switch to trip the unit out causing the burners to shut down.

My furnace heats up and then shuts down not kicking on blower


Your furnace is shutting off on the high limit switch because of this. You are having a problem with the blower motor. You need to check for power from the wires on the board that feeds the motor. If you have voltage, and your run capacitor is good, you have a faulty blower motor. If its a fan relay, the fan would start and run all of the time. Check power to motor right after furnace shuts the burners off.

Furnace GMS9/GCS9 Cycles twice and then fires up most of the time and then it won't fire and shuts down. To restart it We have to shut the 110/115 power off for a few seconds and turn it back on and it...


Furnace ignition controls will attempt to light the furnace 3 times with several minutes delay between each attempt. If it fails to light or the ignition module fails to detect it lit after the 3 tries, the module will lock out and require a "Hard Reset" to try again. It is a common feature in nearly all newer furnaces intended to let you know you have a serious problem. You should call a service technician for this because there are a number of things that may be causing this flame failure. Please grade my answer on how much I have helped you. Thank you for the opportunity. Roger

My furnace comes on and heates the house for about


There is a limit switch that is likely opening. Be sure your filters are clean and all registers and grilles are open and not obstructed. If the problem continues, you may have a dirty indoor coil or undersized duct work. Some models have a window where you can observe the LED lights. If when the furnace shuts down you see any blinking, you need to count the flashes and we can figure out what the problem is from there.

Fan will not shut off after heat cycle is finished. Need to shut off power to furnace. GMP100-3


Are you talking about the indoor fan. Some have a time delay to allow the blower to cool the furnace and make use of the heat built up in the heat exchanger.

Furnace Blower cycles on & off


check out the fan switch on the unit and make sure that its the correct one. it should cycloe on @ 120 degrees and cycle off around 100 degrees. Someone may have put in a different one and that is not the approve one.
