The ignitor is probably going bad.You need to reset the cycle, then head out to get a new one before it trips cycle again.

Either that or order a new one for delivery.

If you can't leave the house to get a new one, eventually the one that is there is going to fail totally, and you won't have any heat.

When you install a new one DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW ONE WITH YOUR FINGERS. Contact and/or grasp only using the paper shield that it comes packaged in .

Attic fan falure hed light blinking furnace wont run

Sounds like the circuit board needs to be replaced. The exact same thing happened on my house furnace. Power went to the board, producing the flashing led, but stopped there. I believe this is what you mean?

Replace the circuit board.

Does this help? Let us know.

When my furnace calls for heat the gas turns on and then the igniter should clicks to ignite the gas but it does not click. Does that mean that the module is bad or the igniter itself bad? The igniter has...

If the igniter is reading zero ohms that's telling you it's shorted or bad. They should range from approximately 100 to 400 ohms.
If you don't have any resistance (ohms) you won't get a voltage drop or volt reading.

I have a Coleman Evcon Mdl DGAT070BDD I am getting a trouble code 4 Flashes, which means Limit is Cycling. I replace both the control board and the limit switch, and still have the same problem.

Your heater is listed under a safety/inspection recall notice, these units have been found to overheat in certain circumstances, which can lead to a failure of the heat exchanger and the furnace. Might be the cause of your problems: They should do a free inspection, Good luck

I have a coleman evcon furnace and it wont work it gives me a flash code of 1 what does it mean

One flash mean ignition failure. The sequence is: T-Stats calls for heat, inducer motor comes on, igniter glows orange (look through glass), then gas comes on and burner lights, approximately 1 minute later the indoor blower comes on. If you don't see the glow, most likely the igniter is bad. If you see the glow but no flame, it's a gas problem, supply or defective valve.

My furnace Coleman DGAT070BDD light flashes 4 times. Do you have any idea what causes that?

Trying to find out what 4 flashes on the internet will be exhausting. However if you have the manual it is explained under trouble shooting. If not, look for a wiring diagram and an error code chart will be on the diagram. Sorry I could not be more help.

Coleman furnace blower runs continuously

You should be seeing 120 volts to the igniter. Anything less requires either a replacement of the transformer, start relay or control module.
