Heat exchanger


If the fan coming on blows out the pilot light it is a pretty good indication that the heat exchanger is cracked. You should not continue to use the heater. I recommend contacting a qualified service technician to check it out and confirm that it is a cracked heat exchanger. Hope this helps

I have an armstrong air ultra v, the ignitor switch or the blower won't come on, we ran the tank pretty low last year, so i'm not sure if we ran out, but we just filled our tank' any suggestions because...


First make sure that your thermostat is turned to heat and auto settings. Then turn up t-stat to where it should be calling for heat.If nothing happens then make sure you have power to heater, gas valve is turned on and blower compartment door is securely latched. If still nothing turn t-stat to fan on and the blower should come on and run until you shut it off. If it does this then you know that you have power to furnace and that the blower works.After you are sure that you have power then remove thermostat cover from base. If stat wires are connected to front of base then disconnect red and white wires and temporairly touch them together. This should send power to your furnace and start the ingnition cycle. If this works then replace thermostat. The sequence of events in the ignition cycle are t-stat calls for heat, induced draft motor comes on and runs for about 20 seconds,then ignitor comes on and lights pilot,then burner lights for 1-2 mins and then blower comes on. I would start at the t-stst and work my way through it. If I can be of any help please ask. Thank you

I have an early 80's mobile home with an "intertherm gas atmospheric furnace" pilot light is lit but can't get the furnace to "fire". Seems as though the limit control is stuck open. ...


If your pilot light is lit then I would first check your thermostat. Make sure it is on heat setting and fan is on auto, turn stat up to where it should be calling for heat. If you don't get burner to light remove front cover from thermostat and see if it has a mercury switch, if it does move temperature selector up and down and see if you can see a spark in mercury switch vial. If y ou cannot see a spark remove screws that attach t-stat to base.Remove carefully and disconnect wires that go to r and w terminals on stat base. Temporarily connect these two wires together. This should make burner light if you have power to thermostat. If burner does light disconnect wires and replace thermostat. Also if you have a volt meter check across these two wires and see if you have power there. Should be around 24 volts a.c. If your thermostat has a fan on setting try that. If fan runs you know you have power to furnace The gas valve needs 24 volts to operate and inside the electric control box in furnace there is a transformer to step down 110-120 supply voltage to 24 volts. If transformer is working you should be able to hear a low buzz or humming sound. You can also check across gas valve terminals when t-stat is set for heat, you should read about 24 volts. If you have 24 volts to gas valve and it is not opening then you need to replace gas valve. The main purpose of the limit switches is to turn blower on when temperature in heat exchanger reaches fan on temp,shut off blower after burner shuts off and heat in heat exchanger reaches fan off temperature, and limit if temperature exceedes set point without blower coming on. I hope this helps you. Thanks

I have switched my unit over to heat and only cool air blows out. Is there a reset button I can try before calling out a repair man.


It depends on what type of unit you have if it is gas or electric. If it is gas your pilot light is probably not lit .take the top door of your furnace off look under the burner and see if there is a small flame lit . if not it is simple to light turn the knob on the gas valve to pilot then push in on the know while holding a match at the pilot head to find the pilot head trace the small aluminuim pipe from the gas valve to where it ends that will be the pilot head once the pilot lights count to 10 slowly then switch the knob to the on position and your set make sure the t-stat is in the off position before lighting the pilot light.

If it is electric heat strips or a heat pump there is nothing to do other than turn t-stat to heat and make sure all 220 breakers are in the on position.

Burners on our Brivis Buffalo 52 Ducted heater aren't getting gas


test thermosat for proper operation ie-broken wire-power if good jump stat and check if unit goes on if it does than stat internal problem or wiring problem and needs replacement or repair --if stat good check fan safety/high limit sensor if good would need to check and test thermocouple thats the tube that the pilot flame burns on may be enough to keep pilot burning but not enough to open valve for heat demand

Pitco frialator (propane)


Better check the incoming gas pressure first, it should match the requirement as stated on the nameplate. Low gas pressure will make the pilot flame small until it could not heat up the thermopile which will shut both main burner and pilot flame.

T-stat turns gas valve on,burner lightsburns long enough for fan stat to turn on fan,high limit shuts off gas valve,fan shuts off;repeats cycle


Probable causes include crack in heat exchanger, dirty pilot, bad high limit switch or bad gas valve. A crack can allow the fan to blow the flame off of the thermocouple or flame sensor. A dirty pilot will cause the same effect. The bad limit switch could cycle the system and a bad gas valve could be shutting off gas supply to unit.

I have a Ruud deluxe 80 plus heater. The unit is running, the pilot light is lit, still no heat.


repost with more specific . motor aka fan is running?stat is set to heat and max heat? how old? general progression is as follows. stat says its cold. signal is sent to gas valve to open. gas valve looks to see if pilot is lit via thermocouple. if pilot is lit then main valve opens and burner lights. shortly thereafter sufficient heat builds up to trip heat sensor that turns on fan and blows hot air into house.many times a tripped safty causes a default fan response. aka when you show up the fan is on 24 7 . that equals a failed safety and needs a pro tech to see why saftyfailed.
