If the ignitor isn't glowing it isn't a fuel problem. It may be a pressure switch or bad ignitor.

My Ruud achhiever 90 starts to fire but as soon as the blower fires the burner goew out. I also noticed that the "igniter" on the end isnt firing. Could that cause the burner to not stay lit when the


There is an ignitor and a flame sensor. If the ignitor does not ignite the gas after a time, it goes out. If the flame sensor does not detect ignition the gas valve closes. When you start it you should see the ignitor come on like a light bulb and glow, then the gas valve opens and you get ignition. Then the flame detector turns on when the ignitor goes out. Flame detectors are like a chrome wire that has one connection to it and it sits part of the way in a burner. They get dirty and corroded. When that happens it shuts down. You can clean the flame detector with steel wool of scotch brite pads. Dont get too carried away doing that though.

1987 nissan 300zx intermitent no spark no start


I have a 90z an there was a statement about the Ignitor Coupling.. Crank Angle Sensor is the problem sounds like.When it is heating up/Electric current doesn't flow as good. Change plug wires also because when they get heated it allows the fire to jump outa the wires. My Z before it thru a rod an blew a big hole in the oil pan would never start when it was cold. Never did really figure that one out.lol

The fuel injectors


the first thing you should check if your car doesnt start is compression, then ignition, then fuel, in that order, even if you got spark and fuel without compression your going no where

Having problem with Frigidair PLGF389CCB oven will not lite.


you may need a new gas valve....but i think you should replace the ignitor first. the gasvalve won't open unless the ignitor pulls a certain amp draw to keep it open, since yours is just opening when you hit it, and closing when you hit it again, i believe it is the ignitor

Frigidaire gas range FGF337


The ignitor should be almost a white hot color very bright . If it is orange or kinda reddish, the ignitor probably isn't getting hot enough to open the saftey valve. you could check the amp draw on ignitor , but most of the time if the ignitor isn't glowing bright almost white , that is probably the problem, besides that if and only if ignitor was good then i would look at the saftey valve. My money is on the ignitor.:)
