Question about Goodman GDS80904BNA Open Flame Heater

1 Answer

Flame Adjustment Recently installed furnace and Amana AC. When furnace ignites it is very loud and sounds like a blow torch. The manual states the flame should be soft and blue. I have asked the company that installed the unit and they say the flame cannot be adjusted...is this right. This unit is located in a furnace room (vented) in our kitchen. Without an adjustment I find the noise of this unit unacceptable.

    Thank you for your response, the technician who installed the unit did comment on that he was having difficulty keeping the setting at a 10..in the installation book (36G22 valve)the only 10 setting is for the pressure manifold and the inlet setting should be between 11-13 w.c. I am frustrated because I called the company (certified dealers)last Thursday (one day after installation)and still have not heard back from them 3 business days later...should the furnace not be put into use until this is resolved?

Make sure the unit is operating on the correct gas, Natural or Propane (LP). The sound you are experiencing is either not enough gas and the flame is burning inside the burner port(s) or too much gas and the flame is much larger than it has to be. At any rate, get a technician to check the gas pressure entering into the home. NOW!

Where should the flame blow when janitrol furnace is ignite?Toward firewall?


It sounds like he incorrectly installed the igniter and it may be a huge danger to your home. A incorrectly installed igniter can cause a excess build up of gas and blow back flame or worst blow up your house. Only have a licensed heating and cooling contractor work on your furnace and not a handy man.

My furnace works on ac and blows on ac but on heat it does not blow but i hear a humming sound coming from the furnace


Most furnace operating on Oil or gas will heat the combustion chamber before starting fan to prevent cold air draft at start-up, can last a minute or two. Eiter the main flame does not come on or the chamber thermostat have fail. Try to modify fan option on room thermostat from auto to on. Cold air coming out: burner problem or no more oil or gas, warm air: burning chamber thermostat problem, leave room thermostat fan option to on until repair.

My amana gas furnace is turning on but shuts off after a second or two after it ignites. whats the problem.


Hello, usually this is a problem with the flame sensor, it's a small metal rod that is on the opposite side of the igniter, turn off power to the furnace and remove flame sensor, take some steel wool and try cleaning the flame sensor after cleaning reinstall it and turn back power to the furnace.

The Goodman Heater was installed in 2004. Thermostat set at 75F, the fan that blows CO2 out was on for about 1 minute, then I could hear the sound of the gas blowing into the furnace, but the ignitor...


Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad ignitor what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor. If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

Troubleshooting and Repair
Furnaces with electronic ignition systems may be much more efficient than their early counterparts, but they do it largely through electronics. However, there are still some troubleshooting you can do but fixing the problems can involve replacement of parts more so than repair or adjustment. PROBLEM: Furnace burner will not ignite
Possible Solution
  • With a Hot Surface Ignition (HSI) system, if a gas hissing sound is heard for about 7-10 seconds and the burners do not ignite, the furnace will go into lockout mode.
  • To reset turn the furnace power switch off and back on and try again. The switch is probably located on the side of the furnace. A reset button may also be found on the solid state controller. If resetting fails again, proceed as follows.
  • Turn off power and gas to the furnace
  • Remove and check hot surface igniter being careful not to touch the heat element. If it is cracked or damaged, replace the igniter.
      PROBLEM: Furnace comes on for 7-10 seconds then turns off Possible Solution:
      • Turn off power and gas to the furnace
      • Remove flame sensor from its bracket. Lightly clean the surface with fine emery cloth and replace.
      • The problem may also lie in a bad ground or the the black and white wires being reversed (reversed polarity) at the junction box or outlet powering the furnace.
      • The electronic ignition control module must ensure current flow through the flame sensor to ground and if the polarity is reversed in the circuit there is no voltage potential and the flame sensor does not work and closes the gas valve.
      • If the black and white wires are connected correctly and the flame still drops out, then the issue may be a bad ground. Using a volt-ohm meter, measure between the white wire and the ground wire to be sure you have no voltage.

Amana Model GUVA090AX50 furnace/AC unit installed 2002. Thermostat calls for heat. fan blows, igniter glows, but no gas... thus no flame, etc. No loose connections found. What next...


I hadone of these installed about the same time. About a month & a half ago, i woke to the same problem except the burner would light but almost immediately go out. It cycled throught 4 more times before timing out. I cleaned the end of the thermocouple (located in the flame path on the right hand side) & voila'. I just came home to the same problem again, so it looks like I'm off to the parts store tomorrow. Cleaning it again did restart the furnace. Hope thus helps.
