What do you mean... It tries to ignite?

do you hear sparking, but no ignition?

... Or do you have the hot surface igniter style, and you see a bright red glow but no ignition?

do you have an Electronic heater, or a Milivolt heater?
IID or Hot Surface Ignitor?
Does it have Pilot Burner?...

If so, does the pilot burner come on and stay on, but no ignition?
Or does it go out?
It would help us, here in this forum, to assist you, if we knew the make and model of your heater?
as you can see A lot of questions, to make you be more specific. A general question, will not be able to provide you an accurate answer to help you rectify your problem.

Hello, it is possible that even tnough the ignitor is glowing it might be too weak to ignite the burners. I would cneck the resistance of the ignitor with a multmeter, should be between 40-90 ohms typically

It could be a number of things, bad fuel ( stale) engine over heating and causeing vapour lock, or a bad ignition unit, start with fresh fuel, replace the fuel filter in the tank, try just slackeing the fuel cap and try starting again, this will rule out the fuel tank breather, if still no better replace the ignition unit.

HAVE A PRESTIGE APS686T REMOTE START ON A2003 FORD FOCUS.HAD 2 NEW KEYS PROGRAMMED. THE REMOTE START FLASHES MY THEFT LIGHT AND WILL NOT START. HOW DO I PROGRAMM THE PRESTIGE TO MY KEYS.


When you had the new keys programmed, the bypass was erased. More than likely, it was a key. Try this: put the first of the two new keys into the ignition, turn the ignition on. The theft light will light up, then go off. Immediately remove the key and put the second key into the ignition. Turn the ignition on, the theft light will come. When the theft goes out remote start the vehicle with the remote, quickly remove the key from the ignition. If the vehicle starts let it run for a few seconds and then shut the remote starter down with the brake. Wait a few seconds before testing the system.
If the above programming does not work the first time, try it again. It may take a few attempts because the process is time sensitive. You CANNOT allow too much time to pass between switching the keys.

My inducer comes on for 3seconds then shuts back off could there be something wrong with the pressure switch?


It begins its power-on cycle normally. First the updraft blower turns on for a bit, then the HSI glows bright orange, then the gas turns on and the flames ignite fully and the big blower turns on.
About 3 seconds after the gas ignites, it shuts off. That is the gas shuts off, the blower continues for about a minute then it shuts off. This cycle will repeat a few times, then usually after the second or third time everything stays on and works normally

My Goodman heater has a problem igniting at times


Hi, I would have to assume your igniter is weak or has a crack in it. Do you see glow from the igniter every time? There is a flame sensor that looks for flame after the gas comes on and it will lockout after three tries, if the flame came on and shut back down every time, it would be problem with that.

Furnace keeps shutting down after lights


time to call service guy you are cycling on a saftey which means somethings not right in ignition circuit the only thing i would tell a untrained person to try is cleaning the flame rod which is part of the pilot assembly it is a metal rod that gives small electric current to ignition device confirming that you have a pilot lite you can lightly sand with sand cloth
