Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Won't ignite!!! My Rheem Quiet comfort 80 is only three years old and has started to have intermittent problems heating my home. There is a clicking sound, but the burners don't ignite. On other days it will work fine. I have had the gas manifold replaced, as the initial contractor bent them on installation. He said this was the problem, but I am still without heat. Help?

    You have a gas valve problem. When you hear the clicking I would focus on the valve. if you have a meter milti meter set it to ohms and ohm out the gas valve. Where you see the two wires going into the top of the gas valve disconnect the wires and check there. If you get no reading the coil inside is bad. this is almost a professional type of fix as natural gas is very dangerous to install improperly let alone buying a gas valve. You can do it though get back with me if you find the gas valve good and we can go from there. ken

If the igniter is not sparking on the pilot assy the pilot will not ignite all the time. You or anyone needs to see if the spark is hitting the pilot assy. be careful not to get shocked. My best recomendation would be call a professional to check unit...

I have a rheem classic quiet 80 . furnace starts up but the igniter will not kick in to start the flame


This problem can be one of two things:

1) Bad igniter.

2) Control board not sending 120 volts to igniter.

You will need a multimeter to verify if the igniter is receiving 120 volts.

How ofter should a Rheem 81V80D A be replaced.So far no problems but is on the second floor. 11 years old.


They don't need to be replaced until you have a problem with it leaking or an element burns out. You can replace the element yourself if your handy. So you won't have to replace unless you have it leaking.

The blower fan comes on several minutes before the


Bad fan switch. It may also be called a fan limit switch. If your furnace is less than 5 years old, the switch is part of the circuit board and you will need to replace the board.

My rheem quiet 80 ignition flame keep going out. it'll turn on and then go out.


I have a Rheem Classic 80 furnace that would ignite but not stay lit. Cleaned the ignition sensor which was easy to get to and the flame sensor which was under the burner plate and it fired up and stayed lit. The flame sensor was about 6" under the burner plate. Easy to get out, but tough to get back in. Used the old piece of paper shim trick to get the screw to "stick" in the socket and it was much easier to position the screw and get it back where it belonged.
