SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a Reddy Heater Model R110. It has operated

remove the cover and check for spark at plug when plugged in if no spark check spark plug gor proper gap, or defective transformer electronic ignitor if you see spark check for proper pump pressure and restricted fuel flow due to seal leak, filter blocked and restriction in nozzle. I would check for defective photocell first for soot/dirt if dirty wipe with clean damp cloth remove photocell from heater and connect ohmeter on the 1000 ohl (rx1k) scale. Hold the lens up to a light source (60 wtt bulb, with the lens of the photocell pointed towards the source the resistance of the meter should be low by clocking off the light source by putting thumb over opening of cell the resistance on meter should be high, replace photo cell if a change in resistance is not observed during this test, let me know if you need more assistance

SOURCE: reddi heater 155 owners manual?

If this has a hot surface igniter, can you see it glowing? If not the igniter could be bad or the control
board for the igniter is baed.

If you are able, remover the igniter and hook it up to a 110 outlet, if it glows the problem is in the board.

If it has a board, follow the incoming power to line 1
and line 2. You will either have to splice the two leads
from the igniter into L1 and L2 or get a special spade
connector that can hold two leads on each terminal.

Plug unit in, glow coil should glow and unit should run
thats assuming you have that style of unit. Do not
attempt to do this unless you can safely perform this.

If you know of an electrician he can do this.

Always 4-5 secs on starterwarm or cold


What is year--make--model--engine size. Check proper fuel pressure, use a gage, key on engine off. Depending on the vehicle, see if pressure will hold for a bit with everything off. Some direct fuel injection vehicles have very high fuel pressure, maybe 2000 psi. I don't know what vehicle you have? Always follow proper procedure when checking fuel pressure. You said spark plugs so I guess it is a gasoline vehicle and not diesel.

Smell of the crankcase oil dipstick to see if it smells like gas? Can you check applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.

Get codes read at parts store or get friend with scanner to check them. Note: you should not smell fuel in throttle body as fuel never goes there. Could be bad crank sensor/cam sensor, fuse for ignition, module, others.

Does the power light come on?
Does the igniter heat up for 5 seconds?

My car turns over good, acts like it might turn on then continues to turn. I figure it might be fuel filter since low fuel light had come on.Or could it be th fuel pump got hot and is not working properly?


common problem is turning car off with engine not reaching normal operating temp and floods engine. try this. DE-CHOKING PROCEDURE WHEN ENGINE CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START
If the engine does not start, try the following procedure to start the engine using the de-choke mode.
Failure to do so may aggravate the no start condition.
1. Depress and hold the accelerator pedal to the floor and crank the engine for 7-8 seconds. (This will clean out any unburned fuel from the combustion chamber)
2. Release the ignition key to stop cranking.
3. Release the accelerator pedal and start the engine. If the engine starts while performing Step 1 the engine will rev up. Immediately release the ignition key to stop cranking and remove your foot from the accelerator pedal.
^ Do not keep holding the ignition switch in the START position over 10 seconds if the engine does not start. This may result in a weakened or dead battery.
^ Avoid racing the engine or sudden take off right after starting the engine.
^ If the engine still fails to start following the De-choking procedure, have your vehicle inspected by your Mazda Dealer.

for your info there is a recall for this problem. contact mazda.

Turned of car, will not start it turns over, but doesn't seem to be getting any fuel


Try A SMALL SHOT Of Starting Fluid Sprayed into the Snorkel
Intake @ Air filter. If it Starts and Does NOT Run After Burning Starting Fluid the Fuel Pump Has Failed. (My Personal Hunch) is (FUEL PUMP FAILURE) BE SURE TO ELIMINATE THE INERCIA SWITCH< it is a fuel shut off switch >>>>> WARNING: Do not reset the inertia switch button if you see or smell fuel.

  1. Turn ignition switch to OFF.
  2. Check for leaking fuel in the engine compartment, fuel lines and fuel tank.
  3. If no fuel is apparent, reset the inertia fuel shutoff switch by pushing the reset button on top of switch.
  4. Turn ignition switch to START for a few seconds, then to OFF.
  5. Again, check for leaking fuel.
LOCATION


  1. Open luggage compartment door.
  2. Remove two screws retaining inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  3. Disconnect wiring harness connector from inertia fuel shutoff switch and remove inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.

I have a 95" model ford aspire. Right now am experiencing a problem on mostly the fuel gauge and the cooling fan. the gauge does not indicate the amount of gas, while the cooling fan does not run. What...


cooling fan has a relay. check it first. Then check the ECT, Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. It is on the engine and sends a signal to the PCM, Engine Computer.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Section 03-03: Engine Cooling 1996 Aspire Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Cooling Fan, Electric sty~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: WHEN WORKING IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT, STAY CLEAR OF THE FAN BLADE. BECAUSE IT IS ELECTRIC AND TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE, IT CAN START AT ANY TIME IF THE IGNITION IS ON.
The electric cooling fan is an electro-drive type. Its operation depends upon engine temperature and ignition switch (11572) position. If engine coolant temperature reaches 97°C (207° F) and the ignition switch is in the ON position, the engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT sensor) (12A648) sends a signal to the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) which turns the engine cooling fan motor (8K621) and fan blade assembly on. Because it cannot operate unless the ignition switch is ON, the engine cooling fan motor and fan blade assembly does not operate after engine shutdown. The fan control relay (FC relay) is located in the LH front corner of the engine compartment, between the battery (10655) and the headlamp assembly. Circuit protection is provided by a 30A fuse labeled COOLING FAN in the main fuse junction panel to the left of the battery. If the vehicle is equipped with air conditioning, an additional relay is installed in the circuit. The A/C clutch control relay (19D572) bypasses the engine temperature portion of the circuit. The bypass circuit allows the engine cooling fan motor to operate whenever the A/C switch is engaged.

Fuel Gauge

  1. Remove the instrument cluster. Refer to the procedure in this section.
  1. Using a jumper, connect the battery positive terminal to the fuel gauge "+" terminal and the battery negative terminal to the fuel gauge "-" terminal.
  1. Connect one lead of a Rotunda Instrument Gauge System Tester 014-R1063 or equivalent to the "F-U" terminal of the fuel gauge (9280), and connect the other lead to the "-" terminal of the fuel gauge.
  1. Adjust the instrument gauge system tester to the resistances shown in the illustration.

  1. If the fuel gauge does not operate as specified, replace the fuel gauge. If the fuel gauge is OK, return to the Pinpoint Test.


Fuel Level Sensor

  1. Remove the fuel level sensor (9275). Refer to Section 10-01 for the removal procedure.
  2. Measure the resistance between terminal A and terminal B of the fuel level sensor.

New battery but 1990 eagle talon won't start


Theres so many things that can cause a car not to start, can you smell petrol after trying to start? if so start with checking the spark side of things, if you dont smell gas find the fuel filter and follow the fuel hose to the fuel rail and squeeze the hose while some one turns the ignition on without starting. You should feel the hose expand when the ignition is turned to the on position, if it does then the fuel pump is doing its job. Like i said it could be alot of things but this is a good place to start. Is it multi coil set up?

The most common problem is the Direct ignition cassette, followed by the crankshaft position sensor. I am assuming that it cranks, but won't start.
