Carrier Furnace 58gs075-1 Circuit board issues...

I have 120v into board, 24 volts out to the limit switch however, nothing to the gas valve or ignitor. Ignitor is new, pilot is new and electrode wires. I would greatly appreciate any help.

    you should not have 24 volts at limit switch if you have 24 volts at switch it is open

  • Don Berry May 11, 2010

    I believe that this furnace is electronic spark ignition. However this model number could be either natural draft or induced draft. Can you verify if it has a small motor around the burner area?

I cant see your wire diagram but trace the circut your talking about. I believe it usually goes through a series of safety switches. Put your VOM across each individual switch. If you get 24 out from the board the first 1 you check and get 24v is open and not feeding back to the board is out. FIND out why. the switch could be bad but it may be indicating a more involved problem, just look aroeund for chared wires or tell tell signes of flame roll out or if its an open (fuse link) suspect what can cause an over heat condition anythign from a bad board or too long an off cycle before the indoor fan comes on ect. PONIT IS Once you come across the cause may not be the reason.
Please grade me accordingly and if you need more I need more info from you.

I have a goodman gmp075-3 furnace, blower and igniter are working fine but not getting any gas to get furnace going


Check if 24 volts is being sent from the board to the gas valve, if not the board is nad and will need to be replaced, if there is 24 volts at the gas vlave terminals then the gas valve must be replaced.

Frigidaire furnace wont light pilot. we have replaced igniter and pressure switch


Gas valve solenoid have continuity? No continuity replace the valve
Getting 24 volts to the gas valve? No voltage from control board check fuse on control board.
Replace control board.
Any rollout switchs that are open and you won't get 24 volts to the gas valve.

GDS80703ANA Open Flame Mid-Size Heater: have brand new heater got gas was running first t...


Hi, It says this problem is still not solved, but its been 4 months ago? Anyway, when this happens, the inducer motor will start on a call for heat, close the pressure switch and then the glow plug will turn orange or a ignitor module will turn on for a few seconds and then the gas valve should be energized by the control module to open and start the heater. So, on your heater you will have what is called a flame sensor that lays along side of pilot tubing and is porcelin with a metal tip and a wire coming out the back that plugs into the module. It senses heat by pilot flame or direct heat and will send a signal back to module to open main gas valve. If you have no pilot at all, you need to check to see if you have gas to the unit first. Get a good sized adjustable wrench and loosen the gas flex coming to the valve to see if you smell and hear natural gas. Bleed it off to get any air it may have. Tighten back down and make sure you have no leaks. You need to get a cheap digital meter. They are very inexpensive. Go to Sears tools and get one for around $19.99 a craftsman.Set the dial to ac voltage the lowest setting above 24 volts what ever the scale reads, such as 200 vac.Now start you furnace, but be for you do take the red and black leads of the meter and put the red lead on one of the connections that reads MV and other to C. Now start the heater and let it go through the sequence of operation. When the ignitor starts to click to light the pilot, the meter should read 24 volts at the valve. If the vale has more then 2- wires, see if it is marked PV and put your red lead to this the pilot valve. As it is clicking there should be 24 volts ac there to open pilot valve. If not, the control module is faulty, only if there is 24 volts to it and you had gas at the flex line. If you have no voltage to this gas valve when the control module or board is clicking, this module will be faulty as it is not putting out 24 volts to the gas valve if you have gas to it. This is a simple check. If you can see a pilot light back there and the gas valve will not open, you will need to check this flame sensor. Carefully remove it. Take a light piece of sanding cloth and clean up the metal tip on it. Now install it and make sure the tip is in the pilot flame. Start it back up and it should fire the MGV to open right away. This should have taken care of your problem. let me know the out come.

Heater will not turn on, it used to fire if you turn thermistat on and gave a little tap to the manifold it would fire right up. now nothing


Move wires around gas valve to see it there is a loose electrical connection then with a volt tester check and see if you have 24 volts at the gas valve, if you do have voltage at gas valve, replace valve.Also check furnace filer make sure it is cleaned, unit could be off on high limit, check limit (s) control (s) with ohms meter for continuity, good luck.

Check to see if you get 24 volts AC at the gas valve from the circuit board when the igniter is glowing. If yes, bad gas valve or blockage in gas train. If no, bad circuit board or broken wire

Sunjoy L-PH018PSS Patio Heater Replacement Parts


What is likely happening is that the pilot flame cannot reach the thermocoupler. This is usually caused by corrosion or other blockage of the gas to the area where the pilot lights. Thus resulting in a small flame or no flame on the side the thermocoupler is located. Fix this by cleaning out the corrosion or other blockage in the pilot assembly. I have found that small spiders like to make their homes here which causes the blockage of the gas for the pilot. The pilot assembly has three parts to it. The ignitor electrode, the pilot light tower, and the thermocoupler. The ignitor electrode has a wire that goes from it to the push button ignitor. The pilot tower is located in the middle and has a gas line going to it from the gas valve (control knob). The thermocoupler stands next to and on the opposite side of the ignitor electrode. It also has a copper line from it to the gas valve.

Unfortunately, the Sunjoy you have, which is the same model of two I have to keep running, is difficult to service. Parts are not readily available either so be careful when you take it apart. They do not sell the individual smaller parts in this model and therefore make you buy complete assemblies.

To clean and service the pilot assembly, remove the screws holding the front plate on where your control knob is. Once that is removed you can see the back of the ignitor, it is black and has one wire coming from it leading up to the ignitor electrode. You will also be able to see the small gas line from the gas valve going up to the pilot tower and the small copper line from the gas valve to the thermocoupler. That assembly is what you need to get to, to clean.

You do that by removing the top canopy by removing the three screws holding it down. Once that is removed, remove the center nut on the heat exchanger (the part that heats up with all of the little holes). It is located on the top and in the center of the heat exhanger. Then remove the three screws that are located around the bottom of the heat exchanger that connects the collar to it. You should be able to remove the heat exchanger now. Tilt the whole heater down and prop the neck on something so you can work on it.

If you look in the top you will be able to see small metal box covering the pilot assembly. This is held onto the pilot assembly with two screws. Remove those screws and carefully remove the box. Now remove the two screws that holds the pilot assembly to the collar (located on the outside of the collar). The gas and copper lines will hold it up. If you look at the pilot assembly from the top you will see one screw holding the ignitor electrode to the pilot assembly bracket. Remove that screw, unplug the wire from the ignitor and remove the ignitor electrode from the assembly. Be careful not to break this and I am having you remove it so that you do not break it.

Now remove the nut that holds the thermocoupler onto the pilot assembly bracket and pull it out of the bracket. The copper line will hold it up and be careful not to kink the copper line. Take a piece of sandpaper and clean the outside surface of the thermocoupler. Corrosion on the thermocoupler could cause it to fail which will cause the pilot not to stay lit. I have not had one do that yet but it could happen.

Now, remove the gas line from the bottom of the pilot tower so that the tower and bracket are in your hands. Put it down and put the heater back up straight. Hook up your gas and turn the gas on. Now, press the control knob on the pilot setting to make sure you have gas coming out of the gas line that feeds the pilot. You should be able to hear, feel and smell it. If not you have a regulator problem or an empty tank. Turn off your gas, remove it from the heater and tilt the heater back down.

Take your pilot assembly, you will see a circular top to the pilot tower that is held down with really small metal ears. Carefully bend the ears back so that you can bend the top of the tower back. Only bend it back far enough to clean the inside of it with a bent wire and compressed air or something. If you look on the lower side of the bracket, above where the gas line is threaded on you will see a hole that goes all the way through the assembly. This hole regulates the pilot gas pressure and allows the gas to mix with the air before it burns. Make sure that hole is clear of debris and take wire or something and thread it through the hole up through the top side of the tower.

When you have it clean, reconnect the gas line, thermocoupler and ignitor electrode. Once reconnected and before screwing the assembly back to the collar, I set the heater back up right and reconnect the gas. I then light the pilot to make certain you have a good strong pilot light generously touching the thermocoupler. The pilot should stay lit haver holding the button in for a few seconds. Do not turn the heater on past the pilot area without the heat exchanger on or you might singe your hair. If the pilot works the way it is supposed to, turn it off, disconnect your gas, tilt the heater back down and reassemble it following the intructions in the opposite manner.

The ignitor problem:
It is probably corroded in the cap (which is also the switch) or inside the ignitor where the battery goes at the spring. Spray these areas out with WD40 which will clean the corrosion out and try it again with a new battery. If it does not go click click click when you press the button you may have to take the ignitor out. Unscrew the cap and then the little black plastic collar which secures the ignitor to the collar. This should allow you to remove the ignitor by turning and maneuvering it out of the collar past the gas valve. Put the battery back in and replace the cap. Press the button to see if it works. Be careful it may shock you causing you to squeal, cuss and likely drop the ignitor.

I just had one do this to me. For some reason the little black collar that secures the ignitor to the heater collar would not screw all the way in. This would not allow cap to fully screw on and therefore would not allow contact with the battery to the contact inside the ignitor near the spring. Tighten it up as best you can so that contact can be made when you press the button. I believe this is one part you can order from Sunjoy separately if you cannot get yours to work....Good Luck

The sequence is Igniter comes on, valve comes on, flame sensor senses flame. If no flame is sensed after 3 tries, a lockout occurs. If you have a volt meter, check for 24-27 Volts AC coming to the gas valve, if your getting voltage to the valve but no gas, your gas valve is defective. It could be a intermittent problem, no matter, still a bad valve. if no voltage to valve, defective circuit board.

Check for 24 volts across the two terminals on the gas valve when the ignitor glows. If yes, bad gas valve or blockage in the gas train. If no, bad ignitor or circuit board. Even if the ignitor glows, it still may be bad and not sending the proper signal to the board. If you jump the R and G terminals on the circuit board, does the fan still only run for 90 seconds? If so I would say replace the board.
