Need a little more info not sure I can help what is model and brand
propane natural gas
First have you tried a mfg website ,second put brand and model number in a search engine see if anything comes up
Last I would venture it is the thermo couple is either bad ,dirty, or has slipped and not staying hot
Take a brillo pad (new and not wet) locate the thermocouple and gently sand it off and try it again
Look for an owners manual on line and see if you can find that to see what the 8 flashes are

SOURCE: my heat n glow fireplace comes on fine with all

You may have a few sensors, one may be a thermopile that energizes the pilot. It is a very thin but long bulb located in the pilot flame. Then you may have something called a thermopile which is also located in the pilot flame that energizes the main gas valve. It is a larger diameter bulb and will have metal wrapped wireg going to the gas valve. If the pilot stays on but the flame goes out under the logs, change your thermopile and look for a bad connection at the gas valve or switch. If both the main burner and the pilot goes out you may have a gas valve problem or a plugged vent pipe. If the flame just disappears it is most likely a gas valve. If the flame changes colors and lifts from the burner, that is a sign of a plugged vent. Good luck.

I have a Rheem Furance that has turned off. Just a few hours ago the main fan turned off. The Furnace doesnm't light even the draft fan does turn on and then the main fan blower motor turns on. I can hear...


You will need to reset the furnace by turning the power off to it. Then as the furnace tries to light, watch the LED for blinking. Hopefully it will give a code other than 1. Try checking the air filter for blockage, make sure all hoses are free of moisture and any drains are not blocked. Check the air intake and exhaust pipe for sags where water could block it.

The sequence of operation is this:
Thermostat calls for heat, the LED may blink telling you it registers the call. The inducer (exhaust) blower starts closing contacts in the pressure switch (small disc shaped thing), the igniter glows orange (seen thru a small window high up on furnace front), gas valve opens allowing main burner to light, flame travels to all other burners, flame rod senses flame within a few seconds and keeps gas on. Room air blower starts within 90 seconds.

Any deviation or delay in this sequence and it goes into lock-out.

It does not fire at all times igniter works, I can hear the gas valve when opens, some times it fires for a minute and some times does not fire at all


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.

GLOW PLUG WORKS BUT ONLY STAYS LIT FOR 30 SECONDS


HI, there are a set of coils on the gas valve assembly that have gone bad. these coils are responsible for the opening and closing of the gas valves. your coil assembly is damaged, in return, causing this interruption.

simply replacing the coils will fix this issue.

Duct fan comes in, igniter lights, but no flame


Remove the front panel. Tape the door switch to the closed position. If the thermostat is calling for heat the furnace should do the following: a light on the circuit board will flash and then the exhaust blower will start. A few seconds later (10-15) you should hear clicking at at the circuit board and an orange glow should be seen thru the small viewing port. A few seconds later the gas valve should open and the orange light will turn blue. If the blue flame only lasts a few seconds and then goes out, their may either be a blockage not allowing the flame to travel to all the burners and not allowing a flame sensor to sence flame, shutting down the unit. After a few cycles of not starting, the circuit board will flash a series of codes that you can read if you look on the back of the front cover. It will give you a starting point where we can research and come up witha more difinitive answer. Let us know what you find for codes.
