    the flame keeps turning on then back off. The yellow light is on at least 3 seconds after the flame turns off. You said it was the light that tells if it senses heat. So that means that it does sense heat?

Try cleaning your flame sensor with sand paper its an "L" shaped objectthat sits in front of the burner theres usually a light bulb on the control board that will turn yellow if it is sensing flame

I have a Rheem Criterion II Gas Furnace that has been acting up the last couple of days. It is model #RGPH-12EARJR. It will cycle on, ignite the pilot, 4 burners light and stay lit from 5-10 seconds then...


Turn off the power to furnace.
on the last burner to light there is a small metal rod in front of the burner. This is a safety called the flame sensor. It is dirty. Unscrew it from the bar ( 1 Screw) unplug the connector wire from it and clean it with steel wool. it will be kind of burnt. Plut back in place and turn on the furnace to cycle.

How do i light the pilot on my Rheem rgba-100c forced air furnace?


Use a barbecue lighter. Turn the valve to pilot. Light the lighter and put the flame at the pilot. Press and hold the gas valve. Keep holding it for about 20-30 seconds after the pilot lights. When you release it, the flame shoud stay lit. Turn the valve to open. If it doesn't stay lit, replace the thermocouple. It is the brass tube that the flame flows onto. They cost less than $10 at most hardware stores. They are universal fit. I keep a spare around all the time, since they are a cheap investment. All you will need to replace it are a screwdriver and a small adjustable wrench.

Have a rheem criterion II. Model


The way it lights is that the gas is spread from one burner to the next by either a flame tray or small holes drilled in the burner tubes. If the flame does not get all the way across the burner tubes within a few seconds, the unit goes out on failure. Clean and inspect each burner tube, not just the orifice. Clean any tray that connects the burners. You can use a small wire brush or tooth brush but be careful near the glow igniter as it is very fragile.
