Re: GM 075-3

David, if the unit has an inducer motor check the flame rod to see if the flame hits it. There is a tray the flame will follow and it gets filled with rust and debris. Check your vent pipe for obstructions. Make sure you do not have a cob web in your burner tubes.
If it does not have the inducer motor, check the pilot assembly. Replace it if necessary.

The heater turns on, but does not ignite. The fan runs for about 5-7 seconds then shuts off. I am assuming the heater needs a good cleaning?

Burner ignites but shuts off 2 seconds later?red light blinks 7 times in a row?no heat.

If your pressure switch has ever been replaced, make sure that it was replaced with an OEM pressure switch, because it can cause some strange behavior on your furnace. Check out this video, as this is touched upon in it: Amazon Furnace Parts:

Turn off the power to furnace.
on the last burner to light there is a small metal rod in front of the burner. This is a safety called the flame sensor. It is dirty. Unscrew it from the bar ( 1 Screw) unplug the connector wire from it and clean it with steel wool. it will be kind of burnt. Plut back in place and turn on the furnace to cycle.

Furnace shut off after 3 time flame from pilot

Sounds like you may have a weak or bad flame sensor. If the circuit board does not sense a good flame it will not light the burners. Also if your furnace is 5 yrs or newer it should give you a fault on circuit board in the form of a blinking or a code itself.

Lennox Gas Furnace that turns on and shuts off in minutes

After troubleshooting like mad, I found that the flame sensor (rod that sits within the flame) was fouled with carbon on the surface. I believe this shields the rod from proper heat detection and the sensor reports that there is no flame and to shut off the gas valve to avoid explosion. Once I pulled out the rod and cleaned it with a wire brush, I have no problem whatsoever--fixed.

Coleman furnace fan keeps turning off and on every 10 seconds...

clean your heat/flame sensor with sand paper or steal wool. If the sensor is dirty, it won't detect the heat from the flame and it shuts the gas off. Clean the soot and junk off the sensor and it should work fine. I have to clean mine every year. After spending hundreds of $$ every yr on tech calls..I figured out the problem and in 30 sec I'm up and running again.

No heat, trouble shooting light has continious flash.

There is a vacuum sensor on most units tied from the exhaust gas fan to the sensor. Does the unit try to start? If the unit's exhaust fails to pull the switch it will turn off after about 30-45 sec after starting. "IT" thinks it's not exhausting and stops to keep from overheating. Do you have this exhaust fan and rubber hose to sensor? Can you see if that fan is turning on start?

No heat, trouble shooting light has continious flash.

Try replacing the filter. Low air flow will allow the furnace to overheat. Sounds like a simple answer. Wish I had tried it before buying a flame sensor and controller. Live and learn I guess.
