Janitrol furnace wont ignite

I have a fairly new (10 yrs old) janitrol furnace which wont ignite it goes through all the motions trying to ignite but after about 2 to 3 minutes there is a hissing noise that try's to ignite then it shuts down. The light indicator blinks once according to the control panel is ignition failure. It says check gas flow or gas pressure orgas valve or flame sensor. How and in which order should I do these?

My janitrol furnace started to make a lot of noise over the last few days. Could something be loose or does it need to be cleaned?


I hate to say it but it sounds like the bearing in the fan is going out. If your lucky there's a replacement...if not then a new furnace. You will have to have it looked at by a furnace tech.

Its too bad I can't hear the noise then I'd have a better answer for you, sorry.

Where should the flame blow when janitrol furnace is ignite?Toward firewall?


It sounds like he incorrectly installed the igniter and it may be a huge danger to your home. A incorrectly installed igniter can cause a excess build up of gas and blow back flame or worst blow up your house. Only have a licensed heating and cooling contractor work on your furnace and not a handy man.

Janitrol GUPS075-3 Furnace burners will not stay lit


The first thing I would do is make sure the flame sensor is clean, this is a metal rod immersed in the burner flame on the opposite side of the igniter. If too much oxidation builds up on it, it will not allow the burner to stay lit. To clean, just turn off furnace and remove flame sensor and clean with steel wool and then reinstall. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the gas valve.

Have a rheem furnace/ten yrs old.just replaced thermocoupler and gas valve,furnace will turn on thermocoupler will get red but no heat? whats up?


I know it may sound strange but check to make sure the gas cut-off valve is turned parallel with the gas pipe. If its open, you may have a failed fan proof switch. air pressure from draft induced blower causes the switch to click and open the main gas valve. if this this switch doesn't click(close contacts) the maing as valve will not open to ignite the burners. its a sequence of events that a furnace goes through before it ignites the burner for heat.

Armstrong furnace ultra 80sx doesnt always lite on first try,service repair man replaced smartvalve,sensor and igniter he says its ok if it doesnt always lite on the first try ,sometimes it takes three...


Sounds like your gas valve is sticking. Your repair man is somewhat correct by meaning that the furnace will attempt to start 3 times before going out on "Lock-out". The furnace is reaching it's expected life and you will start experiencing more frequent issues with it. Check into some of the incentives to get a replacement with a higher efficiency rating. The newer units have greatly improved in performance as well as comfort.
