2004 pontiac sunfine 0442


Smoke test the system . P0442 small leak .
This DTC tests the evaporative emission (EVAP) system for a small leak. The control module monitors the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor signal to determine the vacuum decay rate. At an appropriate time, the control module turns the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve ON and the EVAP vent solenoid valve ON. This allows the engine to draw a vacuum on the EVAP system. At a calibrated time, or vacuum level, the control module turns the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve OFF, sealing the system, and monitors the FTP sensor input in order to determine the EVAP system vacuum decay. If the control module detects a leak larger than a calibrated amount, this DTC sets.

I have a Jayco pop up with an Atwood water heater, serial # 37C14U-5. My problem is two-fold. The water heater pilot doesn't stay lit after initial run, and propane is leaking out of the vent on the...


Leaking propane is red flag #1 and fire hazard.
Immediately update your insurance and then turn off gas.
If pilot is not staying lit, then gas leak can be cause of pilot problem since pressure on the line is reduced.
Other causes include bad gas control valve, air in the gas line, bad thermocouple, burner parts need cleaning, or all the above.
After fixing leak, replace thermocouple, clean combustion chamber and burner parts, and bleed gas line to remove air.

What does a F12 error indicate on a Noritz system


F12 occurs on a multi-system or quick connect. It means one of the units on the system suffered a flame loss. More specifically, it means the flame rod stopped detecting flame on the burner. The most typical causes are as follows:

1) insufficient BTUS (low gas pressure)
2) leaking heat exchanger
3) clog in the manifold, burner, or heat exchanger
4) stuck flue damper or improperly sized venting
5) dirty flame rod
6) damaged circuit board or gas valve

Furnace howls when burner lights for 30 or so seconds then is fine has a nice blue even flame.works fine other then the loud howling noise when burner lights.


Hi, the howling you describe is pretty common as gas heaters first come on. NG or LP gas is delivered at a pressure much higher than appliances actually use, step down regulators lower the pressure as the gas flows. So, when you first turn your heater on, the pressure is a little high until the flow causes an equalization of pressure. You could contact your gas supplier and ask them to check your pressure and tell them you suspect a building regulator. If the pressure were to build too high it could cause leaks or damage the appliance controls.  Good luck.

FURNACE COMES ON AND SHUTS DOWN WITHIN 15 SECONDS


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). When all else fails, check the ground connection for corrosion.
