Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

My Rheem gas furnace Model#RGLG-10EAUEA is cutting out a few second after it ignites and the main blower kicks in for two minutes. It does not seem to have a flame sensor. What could be the problem?

    Look for the flame sensor again. Can be a glass lens(they don't all reach back into the burner) opposite side of the igniter or down below igniter connection.Probably is the problem.

RHEEM RGLG-05EAUER Occasionally, on startup, there is a fair gas smell from the vents for a few seconds.


I think I'd have it checked for a bad heat exchanger. At the very least, make sure you have working Co2 detectors on all levels of the house. You should not be smelling gas from your hear ducts. This is not normal. If anyone in the house is developing a head ache, that would indicate a heat exchanger problem.

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.

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.

Have a rheem furnace/ten yrs old.just replaced thermocoupler and gas valve,furnace will turn on thermocoupler will get red but no heat? whats up?


I know it may sound strange but check to make sure the gas cut-off valve is turned parallel with the gas pipe. If its open, you may have a failed fan proof switch. air pressure from draft induced blower causes the switch to click and open the main gas valve. if this this switch doesn't click(close contacts) the maing as valve will not open to ignite the burners. its a sequence of events that a furnace goes through before it ignites the burner for heat.

Rheem 90+ NG Furnace. When furnace starts, draft inducer starts, ignitor glows and gas ignites. Burners stay lit for 10 seconds or so, then the flame reduces for a few seconds then goes out. Main blower...


Check the draft inducer air switch ( vacuum diaphragm switch) If the switch is opening when the burner starts, you might have a blockage on air piping coming into the furnace. Also prime the condensate trap on the condensate drain from the combustion fan. Also check the gas pressure, if your gas pressure is dropping, the gas pressure switch will shut it down. If it's too high the moment it comes on could raise the pressure in the furnace dropping out the combustion fan proving switch.

Furnace not kicking on when thermostat calls for heat


On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

vulcan bonaire comfort control External natural gas electronic ignition 2004. ISSUE: Fan blowing only cool air continuously. Forced to kill power to stop it. model is one of the following. MB514E,20E or 30E. Going by mech drawing parts list. i can confirm what type of sensors i have cleaned with very fine sandpaper. flame sensor PN 5441603SP and IGNITER ELECTRODE PN 5441602SP The fault code i see is described as the following. There are x4 LED's. Sequence Left to Right. LEGEND: 1 Flame Sensor 2 Pressure switch 3 OverTemp 4 Diag. R Red G Green S Solid Colour B Blinking LED Behaviour. In order 2RS & 4GS Until i hear ignition. 2RS & 3RB Duration: split second 2RB,3RS & 4GB Duration: split second 3RS & 4GB Duration: Until it has completed blinking x4 times. 3RS Duration 4 seconds Repeat last two mentioned behaviour. in my own opinion, as a safety feature, the unit thinks that it has overheated or is about to. so kills the gas and force feeding cool air to heating components to save it from frying. Does this mean i have fault 04 if so does this mean i may have a faulty igniter or flame sensor or maybe a faulty as described in the mech drawing SWITCH OVER TEMPERATURE 120 degrees celsius. Am i correct here? Is this the over temperature cut out switch? if no one can really pinpoint which part requires replacement, can you at least, in sequence advise which parts to purchase? so then ill just try my luck. i wonder how to properly test if flame sensor, igniter, over temp etc is faulty with a multimeter. do i just perform a continuity test. I wonder what other parts can i test related to this fault im getting.
