    The furnance is sized correctly. The ignitor goes out about every two months.

    Maybe try a different brand? Interesting some ignitors we install and seem to never change but other units on the same roof seem to get changed a lot,but even then not more that twice a heating season.
    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Don't touch the surface of the igniter when handling it, and don't bind the mounting bracket when you tighten the capscrews, the bracket and igniter should be firm and no loose/movement if you try to move the bracket. also make sure the igniter is going back off after the burners light

RAPID FLASHING ORANGE LIGHT ON MODEL NUMBER MC30B3XH1A


filter may not be in correctly. if it is gas, check the pilot, if it doesn't have a pilot, it may be the ignitor. depending on how new your furnace is, it may have a safety feature that won't let it start for some reason. seeing that it will at least start the cycle is a good sign. it may be the filter not placed right. i'm not a furnace expert, just know my experiences. you may want to look at the limit switches as well, they only require a tester to see if they are good. if you own the testers, you probably know what you're looking for.

Furnace will run, put out heat, turn off and doesnt start again.


What is model # & serial # of this furnace, it may have a diagnosis led indicator light located on the control board, behind bottom door of furnace which will blink and tell you a fault code. Also check furnace filter, make sure its clean, check through out the house to see if all registers are open and not blocked by any objects, make sure cold air return grill is not blocked, the unit could be over heating and shutting off on high limit, good luck.

I have a goodman gmnt 100 b furnace 2 stage when the gave valve turns on and floods the heat exchanger with flame then the squirl cage fan turns on and i loose the the flame


If you are getting flame distortion when the blower comes on it usually means a cracked heat exchanger which can lead to carbon monoxide, get your furnace checked by a qualified tech..

York furnace model p2mpd12h06401f flashes 4 times for trouble code does'nt have code list inductor motor comes on but ignitor does'nt come on


Check pressure switch for inducer motor. If switch closes, check for crack in ignitor. If gas valve opens and you can hear/smell gas, the ignitor is bad probably. If pressure switch isn't closed you need to check for blocked vent/chimney/heatexchangers.

No heat through vents


Does your condo have more than one thermostat? if so there are powered dampers that open and close to direct heat where it's being called for. You may have dampers stuck/inoperative.
