This can happen when your logs are not in the correct position. This also can happen if you are burning candles, a smoker, or spraying aerosols. I would have a Professional check it out.

Hi there my home is about 3 years old. i have noteced black dust on the doors window frames basically everywhere. i don't know why.


Does this unit have an blower? If so there is no filter and this can happen.
Direct vent means no open flame in the house but you might still have a combustion problem. Open the front cover and check for black soot. Also check outside at the flue for soot. If so then you need to get this thing checked. Also make sure the little door for the pilot is closed. May have a improper install here if only 3-years.

What causes black soot to smoke up our complete house with ventless logs


Hi,
Take the pilot and burnner assembly all apart and blow it out with compressed air then reassemble and make sure that the air shutter is totally open. The soot is cause by a bad air/fuel misture that is too rich and cause carbon to form from incomplete combustion. If the burner continues to make soot then reduce the gas pressure to the gas log at the pressure regulator.

Goodman furnace model # GMNT100-4B On vacation, neighbor checked house, house filled with gas. He shut off main and furnace. came home turned on gas to everything except furnace. All good. Furnace will...


Solid red typically means bad controller. Try unplugging the furnace, wait about 30 secs, then plug it back in. The possibility that the controller was sending voltage to the valve even when there was no flame is a bad sign. If the controller starts the furnace, watch it very closely and see what it does. If the solid light comes back on, it's time for a new board.

Hi my home furnace fan keeps coming on and off while in use, like an electrical brown out, then sometimes it works fine.


Sounds like the fan relay has burn't contacts, although never heard of them going bad personaly but everything wears out eventualy I guess. These are normaly just a metal box slightly larger than 4 x 2.5 inches in size and I think most have the name honeywell embossed onto the cover.

Bang (like explosion)


you have a gas leak in the housing the heater is in, or the balanced flue system is leaking, i.e. flue gasses are mixing with the combustion air.

Installing a Dayton G73


How many amps is your service? And what gauge wire did you use for the heater?
If your service is only 40amps that is your problem. You don't have enough amps for the heater and the rest of your house, you will have to upgrade your service.

The burners are shot. The heavy metal tubes with the holes that the burner flame comes out of, has burnt through. Instead of little rows of holes, there is at least one large hole in it. Unless someone has changed the gas>air mixture, you need new burners.
