Coleman furnace ignition failure

I have a Coleman furnace and the green light is flashing once indicating an ignition failure. The furnace clicks but never comes on and then shuts completely down, hence the failure. Any suggestions on what I could do before I call a repairman

    My Coleman Evcon furnace lights. When the blower comes on, the burner goes out. It goes through trial for ignition twice more then faults to 1 flashing light indicating an ignition failure. After resetting it goes through the same routine. I've replaced the high limit sensor and the flame rod. No change. I've bypassed the thermostat and both temp sensors with the same results. Any ideas?

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.

Running out of LP??


Yes. The ignitor is trying to find fire and it can't. That's an ignition error. It should go away once you get fire to the sensors. You might have to hit a reset button, it all depends on the heater.

Have to replace ignitor on coleman furnace every year


The voltage regulator on the control module is sending the wrong voltage to the ignitor or the ignitor is getting wet from condensation. That ignitor should last many years. Replace the control module.

Furnace not working. ok light flashing


The flashing light indicates that there is a problem. Turn off the power and then back on. Count the flashes and it will indicate the code to the problem. There will be a time pause between the flash codes. The most common problem is the failure of the hot surface igniter .

Ignition failure code on


Sounding like a flame proving device is failing to sense flame. Try to clean the device with some steel wool. It is located right next to the last burner looks like a thick wire. Take the steel wool and gently rub the carbon that has built up off. Should only take 4 or 5 strokes. Let me know it that did it. Ken
