Weak flame in intertherm furnace

We have a intertherm propane furnace. the yellow light that flashes indicates a weak flame. We have changed the circuit board, sensors, pressure switch, gas valve, and the yellow light still flashes, indicating weak flame. The furnace will ignite, but as soon as blower kicks on the flame goes out. can you give us any ideas as what would be causing this thanks

Ok, so we can rule out the ignitor. (standing pilot systems can develop problems that will cause such symptoms.)

Check the gas pressure, make sure you are getting 11 to 14 PSI.

You need that after the regulator all the way to the manifold.

Also check for cracks in the heat exchanger, causing the wind from the blower to distort the flame pattern enough to cause improper contact with the flame sensor.

Make sure the burners and flame channels are clean of rust, and dibri build up, allowing the flame to properly contact the sensors.

It sounds like the flame sensor is bad. If thats not the case you may need to replace the control board. You should make sure the flame sensor is directly into the flame.

Hi, did he bypass the high limit to see if it was bad? Sounds like you are getting false codes and you have a problem in your module or main board, which ever you have. The way it is acting, saying the high limit is open but the tech says its not, I would change the board.

Intertherm m1m furnace board says low flame yellow lite flashes 3 times Not getting enough heat


The system most likely just needs to be cleaned thouroghly. The burners, orifices, ignition assembly and flame sensors get diry, rusty, and contaminaterd. That causes low gas flow, and improper flame pattern. The othe possiblilty is a cloged or failing gas valve.

Intertherm propane furnace makes popping sound when running


It sounds like you have a possible hole in the heat exchanger. Turn the heat off and turn the fan on. If you feel any air coming back out of the heat exchanger, you have a hole. A yellow flame is not a good sign. I would even consider having a service professional come out and take a look.

Heater lights for about 5 sec and then goes out


One flash on a Ruud furnace indicates failure to ignite. There is a viewing port on the furnace where you can watch the flame. If the ignitor is igniting the burner and then 2 or 3 seconds later, the flame goes out; you most likely have a flame sensor that is dirty or not working. Check to make sure you are getting gas. Check the connections of all wires to the control board. If the sensor is not part of the ignitor, see if you can get to it to clean it with a small wire brush. Make sure there is a good ground connection between the board and furnace frame. If the flame is not traveling all the way to the flame sensor, clean your burners. If the flame burns inside the burners, you may have weak gas pressure. Good Luck.
