The problem is in the switch. You will need to replace the switch for that burner.

My Janitrol/goodman model gups100-4 will not light pilot strong new thermocouple

Hello Hal,

The picture show with your question seems to indicate a small furnace... The THERMOCOUPLE statement flies in the face of that...

There's no extra charge for a more detailed question... but the only reason to replace a thermocouple is if the pilot lights... but wont STAY LIT...

The "pilot" click... would be really nice to hear about.

Most of your modern "sparkers" or HOT-SURFACE igniters
will only try a few times to light the pilot... then they should lock up... to keep from accumulating a dangerous amount of gas... and to avoid a possible EXPLOSION.

SOMETHING YOU MUST keep in mind while you are working on your heater... GAS.

To reset your logic... you might be able to simply remove power.

(in my opinion) The most common failure is a fractured hot surface igniter... (but I've put a page full of ideas below)

If you are hearing an initial click... check for line voltage at the hot surface... if equipped for the pilot to light... (this is where I put my finger to see if it was warm... That was how I DISCOVERED it was FULL LINE VOLTAGE (not a recommended... test).

If you are not getting that INITIAL CLICK you have several areas to pursue... low voltage transformer is good (volt-meter)...
High temp sensors (etc.)...

Not expensive... but dangerous if not correctly serviced.

Might be time to hire a certified professional.

Hope I'm helping!

Hi my 1.8 mrk 3 golf wont go over 3000 revs has no power when driving and surges when in traffic. please help we have changed spark plugs as there was discolourattion.

I would start with the catalitic converter. When you run your car there are 2 ways to know that your converter is going bad. 1 after running for a while the converter can get very hot, to the point that it starts to glow red. it is bad. 2 Again when you run for a while, check the exhaust at the back, this will be hot, but not so hot that you can't keep your hand about an inch away from the end of it. If it extremely hot this is an indicater that the converter is clogging up and causing the symtoms you described.

Light indicater keeps coming on light wont stop. mitsubisi brand

Have you had the bulb replaced in the unit yet? There is a timer in the unit that is set to a specific number of hours. If that is not reset when the lamp is changed you may still have this problem. The issue could also be unrelated to the lamp but in the power supply itself. I think you would be best advised to contact a repair shop about the unit.

Bag change indicater staying on and vacuum smells hot when using

I suspect there is a blockage somewhere along the pipes leading to the dust bag.
The bag full or bag change indicator measures how strong a vacuum is present at or near to the point where the bag is connected to the pipes. Under normal conditions an empty bag poses little resistance to the air passing through and therefore causes only a slight vacuum. A full bag poses a lot of resistance and therefore causes a strong vacuum which in turn makes the indicator show time to change.
If, however, there is a blockage somewhere, regardless of the state of the bag, a strong vacuum develops which causes the indicator to show as if the bag is full.
The hot smell is proably a result of the motor having to work hard trying to overcome the blockage.
Try to look into all the pipes - you may need to do a bit of dismantling and/or strech out flexible pipes to do so - to see if there's anything stuck. Also try some (careful and gentle !) poking through the pipes with something like an un-ravelled wire coat hanger, but take great care when poking through the flexible pipes as these can be ripped and then you'll have a differnt problem !

ifthe "hot surface" indicater light is on, its as ighn that the coresponding element is bad( actually only a safety switch within the sensor, but the entire element needs replacing).. hopefully on oyour unit there a 4 indicators one for each burner(helps to see which burner is bad)

Hot Surface Light stays on

Our success has been to heat the elements to hot for about 5 minutes. Then let cool to reset temp sensor.

Can cause the problem by turning a burner on for a short period of time
