Where is flame sensor on my old oil furnace?

Older Goodman Oil Furnace has a discontinued Ducane Oil pump on it, and I can't find the flame sensor window to clean it. It starts up fine and runs for about 45 seconds, and then trips.

Thanks for your question,
The flame sensor eye is located just under the transformer, it is looking straight down the burner assembly to where the burner chamber is at, you will have to remove the entire assembly to get to it, first make sure the power is off, remove the transformer, then remove the entire burner assembly from the furnace cabinet, once removed you can see the flame sensor window, use a clean oil free cloth to clean it, it would probably be a good idea while you have it out to replace the burner nozzle, as over time they will clog, I hope this helps you fix your oil burner, let us know and rate this please, thanks again,

What's your problem? goodman furnace lights, burns 10 secs goes out


Hello,sounds like you have a dirty flame sensor. This is a metal rod on the oppositenside of the hot surface ignitor. turn off power to the furnace and remove the flame sensor, then use steel wool and clean the flame sensor and reinstall. Next turn back power to Furnace.

Goodman GMP Furnace problem. Original problem is


Good one! Is the flame getting to the flame sensor within the few seconds? Maybe a good cleaning of the burners or flame tray would help. 1.3 ma is enough for the flame rod to tell the board to stay on. Re-do all the ground connections both at the board and furnace cabinet to be safe. Check the polarity of the power going to the furnace. What are the chances the second board is bad?

My burner goes on but shuts off early and blows cold air. it is a goodman furnace. where should i start to solve this problem. i just had furnace cleaned and flame sensor cleaned. should i buy a new flame...


First when it goes out again, locate the furnace and look thru a small viewing port to see if there is a light blinking, count the number of blinks. Then look at the wiring diagram for a diagnostic code chart. This will give you a strart of where to look.

Where is the heat sensor on a goodman furnace


Heat sensor....Or a flame sensor. Flame sensor is connected to a "single" wire under the buners usually found on the left side. Heat sensors (or flame rollout switches) are found surrounding the burner box. The most common bad one will be located just above the burners. it "should" have a small reset button in the middle just between the two wires. If the furnace does light even for a short time the rollout switch is not bad.

Goodman Furnace Lights But Won't Continue to Run


The flame sensor is dirty. You can not see the build up on the sensor but enough build up will change the resistance and the furnace thinks there is no flame.

To clean the sensor, first you need to locate it. it will be a sensor located in the path of one of the flames. Once you locate the sensor, open the bottom panel to turn"off" the furnce. After the panel is removed, unscrew the sensor from the frame above the jets. Use a clean rag and gently wipe the sensor several times. Place back in the cut out and close the lower panel.

The furnace should cycle on and the flame stay on for the normal cycle.
