Re: burners come on and go out amana 80sse

Ths is an easy problen to solve. Looking close to the burners is a pilot sensor. It looks like a thin metal pin about 1" 1/2 long. Clean this with sandpaper. This will allow you furnace to stay lit.

Hope this helps,

Have a Amana Distinctions model GMH800453ANAB furnance light indicator blinks 6 times . Which reads open Roll out. What is this and can I repair myself.

Hello, A roll out is a switch that senses the temp near the burners. If the the flame pattern in the burners is abnormal that roll out switch will open and turn off the furnace for safety. You can try cleaning the burners yourself and see if that will fix the problem, make sure you turn off the power and gas to the Furnace when working on it. However, if that does not fix the problem Iw ould call a HVAC technician to inspect the furnace, sometimes it could be low combustion air or a problem with the gas input to the burners.

The pilot light will stay lit. Go to turn on heater and stays on briefly and goes out The heater wont stay lit.

If the fan comes on and blows out the pilot light then you need a new furnace because that's the sign of a crack in the heat exchanger. Need a little better description. Do the burners light then the fan come`s on and then it goes out completely?

Can you tell me the order in which each componet of a gas furnace comes on to start the furance?

Yes there is a sequence:
0:00 Dial for fan/limit switch is at 70 deg position. Furnace is cold. I turn T-stat to 80 deg to start furnace.
1:00 Burner comes on and dial begins to move slowly up.
2:30 Dial at 140 deg and fan motor comes on. Dial never goes above 150 deg.
3:00 Burner turns off. Dial slowly moves back towards 90 deg.
4:45 Burner turns on and dial is at 110 deg.
4:50 Fan turns off with dial still at 110 deg.
5:30 Burner off. Dial at 120 deg.
6:15 Fan on. Dial at 140 deg. Burner is still off.
7:00 Burner on. Dial at 120 deg.
7:40 Burner off. Dial still at 120 deg.
8:30 Fan off with dial at 110 deg., and it quickly snaps back to the 80 deg. position.
8:30 plus, cycle continues.....

My goodman furnace (model gmp 108-3) is not working. If I turn off the unit and turn it back on the fan comes on and the little filament heats up, then the top burner will light, but it will not stay lit...

All of the burners should light. Could be a dirty flame runner. I recommend that you get a good clean and check.. Burners, flame runner, flame sensor should all be cleaned. If this does not solve your problem than the gas pressure needs to be checked.
Good luck....

Amana-80sse furnace turns it's self off after starting.

thats going to be a gas valve issue. either their is no gas to the valve or its not letting it go through. and you also need to make sure the exhaust fan is running too.

Rheem gas furnace pilot lights, but no burners or fan

If the burners do not fully ignite, the sensor will shut the furnace down. The lack of sufficient burner flame is a gas valve or gas pressure problem within the valve.
Replacing the gas valve with the original one may get you going. I surely suggest a professional service company for safety reasons and a thorough inspection. A 20 year old furnace is past it's normal life span.

Burners go out before the fan starts

that makes no sense? the door on does exactly the same thing as you holding the switch closed and neither has anything to do with the problem you are describing. if door were off nothing would happen. if door was on ,nothing would happen unless the switch was closed. it may be coincidence, but sounds like the unit is not proofing the flame. look for a little needle like sensor that protrudes into the flame path in front of a burner. when the burners light it senses flame and tells gas valve burners lit and its ok to stay on. then heat builds and the fan is briught on. once in a blue moon the overtemp sensor trips open prematurely as soon as the burners start to heat up. it is a little wire in , wire out sensor above the burners that protreudes into the bulkhead above the burners. if it is cold and open its bad. if you jump it and burners light and stay lit and fan comes on its bad. fairly cheap and easy to replace. you may have an old fan limit switch the rotates like a spring to bring the fan on as it heats up, then turns off burner if its gets to hot or is set to low. it also turns fan of as burners cool down.

Blower fan will not come on when set on Auto in heat mode.

the fan is controlled by a fan center or a stack switch. as burners light and heat up the spring sensor on the bulkhead above burners heats up and turns and a a point energizes the indoor fan if it gets to hot the burners go out on safty. sounds like a fan control is bad tap on them gently and they sometimes break loose but if not then have a pro replace fan control and test heat exchanger.

I have an amana air command 90 furnace. the burner won't light.

This unit goes in steps, 1-- thru--4 Step 1, vent fan blower motor runs & prove thru the air tube, which closes a switch and tells the circuit board to go to step---2 Step 2 lights the glow plug and goes to step 3 automatically, Step 3, opens the gas valve and send in gas thru the long venturi tubes which lights from the glow plug and on the last tube, theres a rod that sticks into the flame, if no flame or not working properly, it will shut down the starting sequences and retry for 4-times and automaticaly lockout till unplug and start over. (whever step it stops at, then thats where your problem is!
