Running out of LP??

I have a Coleman furnace with an electronic ingitor. My LP company forgot me on their route and I ran out of LP last night. I cant get the furnace to run now, the diagnostic light flashes indicating an ignition problem. Was this cause by 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.

Coleman kersene furnace in mbile home, (furnace is only 4 years old--just inspected 3 months ago) However,it ran fine last night, now it will not come on unless you hit the ret switch, then it tuns 20-30...

Sounds like a fuel or ignition problem. If the unit does ignite when its reset it could be a bad Cad eye or primary control. If it does not light off when reset,DO NOT re-rest anymore and call the Heating contractor back to inspect and repair.

Burner flame going out on windy days on Coleman Evcon LP furnace

This sounds like a bad heat exchanger. It is possible that you do not see the crack because the crack is closed when the heat exchanger is cold (or room temp). Allow the furnace to heat up, this will allow the expansion of the crack. Turn the power off and examine the heat exchanger while it is still hot.

Furnace not cycling properly.

you might want to check the filter, if the filter is restricting the airflow the furnace will over heat and it will shut down. if you turn it off and on it will reset it and it will try again. Pull the filter out half way and try that, if it runs fine then clean the filter or get a less restrictive one.
