Have you check to see if the direct drive motor comes on. (The big one on the bottom of the unit). Turn your thermostat up and then go down to the unit shut off the switch attached to the unit and turn back on. See if the start sequence works. (small motor starts to spin,(top of unit), the flame sensor comes on, and the gas ignites. Once the unit has warmed up enough the main motor on the bottom should start to turn and blow warm air into the vents. If the motor does not turn on, the limit switch cuts on and turns off the gas flow. I replaced the main motor myself and my furnance has worked fine ever since.

There will be a diagnostic code that will blink on the control board. Look thru the clear window at the control board after the unit does not light up. On the reverse of the front panel, you will find a wiring diagram and in that area there will be a diagnostic code table. Sounds like a bad gas valve.

Goodman furnace GMP075-3 The thermostat was in the off position over night and sometime during the night, the induced blower and blower motor came on. The trouble light on board blinks 5 times. I checked...

Need your model # to check the codes but, this coming back on after turning the t-stat off is rare. You may have been in a lockout and the furnace re-started. Some furnaces try to start three times , then lock out. Time out, then re-start. The codes should be on your furnace blower door. Write back with this info and i could help.

Heater unit will not ignite, will note fire up

Check your furnace by the electrical panel, there should be a blinking error light. Sometimes there is a legend to how many blinking lights means what. I had an issue with mine, read the code and it turns out it was hitting the high heat limit. Turns out my blower motor wasn't turning on. Replaced it with a spare and it was fixed. Find out what type of furnace, and google the name, model, and the words, 3 blinking lights. Does your furnace turn on at all? Does it start to go through the cycle then stop? This is the proper cycle of a furnace and what should happen.

Inducer motor kicks on, it runs for a little bit, about 3-5 seconds, then you should see a bright yellow glow, this is the igniter, shortly after, you should hear a click and the gas should start to flow, almost immediately it turns to a blue flame. Then your igniter should turn off and the blower motor start up.

Goodman dependable 92,7years old. Furnace works sometimes. Checked out by qualified technican. no problem found. Constant checks shows troubleshooting light blinks three (3) times. Help please. 3...

This indicates a open limit switch on the furnace, the heat exchanger is getting to hot therefore the limit switch is opening and not allowing the furnace to work properly. Did the techinician check the limit switch on the unit?

While lowering the thermostat the screen went blank. The a/c turned off and now nothing works. Please advise

You may have the furnace running the power to the thermostat. To check, you can see a terminal on the back of the thermostat that is marked ''C''. If it has a wire ran to that terminal, it usually means the furnace provides the power to the thermostat. If this is the case, you may have flipped a breaker or blew a fuse inside the furnace (depending on the model). You might try checking the breaker first since that is a common thing, then check the furnace and see if it has power, you might try flipping the switch ( if available) or flipping the breaker to reset it, it sometimes works depending on the problem. If it is a fuse, they are usually 4 amp fuses. The only other way to troubleshoot to see if it's the thermostat, you can take the Red wire and the Green wire off of the terminals on the back of the thermostat and carefully touch them together and see if the fan comes on, it's basically hard wiring the furnace fan motor to have power, if it doesn't come on, then the problem persist in the furnace. Hope this helps or at least sets you in the right direction. Good luck!

I have a Goodman GMPN080-4 furnace. The light on the board blinks 3 times. The furnace won't light at all. What could be the problem?

Hi 3 blinks should mean it is the pressure switch there should be a code in the manual or inside of the door
