Re: new furnace flame rollout
Have you checked the venting either on the side of the house or on the roof ? did you or the company who installed it go by the specs on how many elbows and length of the venting run ? It also sounds like you have some blockage somewhere, if your in a climate that has alot of snow or some type of freezing rain, your intake or exhaust could be plugged by ice or snow, if so, a quick solution for this is if you have a shop vac , take the tube and hook it up to the exhaust side of the vac, then place the vac tube into the 2" vent wrap a rag around that to make a better air seal, then turn the unit on, if ice is the problem it will blow it right out ! if this does not fix the problem, I would consult the company who installed it and have them come take a look, should be no charge if the system is new, hope this advise helped, please rate this and let us know how we did, thanks for your qquestion, mr.grzz

The flame rollout switch is located in the burner box on the left side on an upflow model. There are two wires connected to it .between the two connections is a small red button. Depress this until you here a small click. This should reset the switch. These
switches usually open because the flame is "rolling" back instead of being drawn into the furnace.start furnace and check for flame rollout.when the main blower fan comes on if you notice any change in the flame turn furnace off and call a qualified service person as this could indicate a cracked heat exchanger and could cause carbon monoxide to enter the house a potentially dangerous situation. I strongly urge anyone with a gas appliance installed to have a good carbon monoxide(CO) detector installed also. Hope this helps.
Without knowing what brand of furnace you have it's hard for me to say. But on most brands that I have installed and serviced when system is functioning right the diagnostic light blinks a slow steady pulse like your heart beat. With you already changing the the ignitor and flame sensor about the only other thing I can think of before changing the board would be the flame rollout switch. Watch your burner when it first fires and see if it is tripping rollout switch. If it is then I would clean burners and see if that helps. Good luck. Thank you.
Your furnace is off on a safety limit. Look for small thermal disks around the burner area they will have a usually red switch in the center and 2 wires coming into it. Reset this and watch furnace run. These are called rollout switches and they trip when you have flame rollout. SO WATCH IT RUN. If you have flame rollout you will most likely have a cracked heat exchanger if so you will need a new heat exchanger or new furnace. Next the number of flashes is important on some furnaces it will tell you what part is faulty. Count the flashes then on one of the furnace covers is the wiring diagram it will tell you what the flashes mean otherwise you can tell me and Ill help you out, WHen you reset the power on the furnace does it try to heat tell me what all happens when you shut the switch off then back on. when you turnit back on make sure the stat is calling for heat,
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
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.
You need to find the rollout switch and see if it has a manual reset button on it or not. There are 3 styles of rollout controls. One is a disc type that mounts behind the burner ends, there may be more that one,possibly one on each side of the burner tray. This style rollout is usually manual resetting. It most likely will be black or silver in color and usually is about the size of a penny in diameter and about 1/2" in thickness with 2 wires going into it and a red push type button in the middle. The next style is similar two the first as it is manual resetting also, but this rollout uses a small copper capillary tube that runs just behind the burner ends and is mounted to the burner tray. If you follow this tube it will lead you to the manual reset button which is most likely mounted below the burner tray. The last style rollout is what they call a fuseable link, this is mounted behind a burner end and looks like a resister used in electronics, it is about 3/4" long and about 3/16" in length and is silver in color. It is mounted in a porcelain mount. This style is not resettable it has to be replaced with one of the same temperature rating. You would need to go to a Carrier/Bryant dealer to get the right one. Either take it with you or bring the model and serial number of your furnace. The most important thing about rollouts is that there is a reason it opened up(went faulty). The reason they trip or open up is due to the burner flames are rolling back out of the burner box and getting the rollouts hot enough to trip or open up. This is telling you there is a serious issue with your furnace that needs to be found and repaired. There are a couple of things that is causing this. They are that your exhaust is not venting properly. Your exhaust venting could be restricted with whatever. You need to pull your venting off and look for restrictions all the way from your heater to the end of the chimney. The next thing it could be is that your heat exchanger is cracked enough to allow positve air pressure on the exhaust system when the indoor blower fan is running. You can check this out yourself by watching the burner flames when the indoor fan comes on. If the heat exchanger is cracked enough the burner flames will flutter or move back toward you when the indoor fan comes on causing the rollout to trip or open up. Most manufacturers have a 20 year warranty on the heat exchanger(parts only,you pay the labor cost). Depending on the age and condition of your furnace it may not pay to have the heat exchanger replaced. I hope I was able to steer you in the right direction!! Good luck!!
Sounds like two problems. Not enough combustion air or a defective high temperature limit switch. You enclosure may not be getting enough outside air to properly sustain combustion. If the unit has a rollout thermostat it may be defective and stopping everything.
'Limit or flame rollout switch is open'. In my case, the flame rollout switch had tripped due to an overheating? I had to push the button between the wire leads to reset the switch. Then when I turned the power back on, the furnace started up like normal.
Why did the switch overheat and trip? My current theory is that there was a rubber grommet around a pipe near the switch that had slid down and was no longer sealing the furnace?
sounds like your burners need to be cleaned, you will need to pull them out and clean the rust out of them. the rust builds up on top of the burners and when you gas valve opens and fills the burners full of gas you will have a roll out of flames. hope that helps.
