Question about Honeywell Heaters
My home furnace has a Honeywell gas valve has a marking on the side ( model V800 A1070 ) It is making rapid ticking noises and when it stops, the burners will light up until the valve starts ticking again, then the burner goes out. what can I do? If I have to replace it, can it wait til morning or does it need immediate attention tonight? and what model number can I use to replace this one?
I called Nexgrill technical support at 1-800-913-8999. They are sending me a new thermo couple to keep the valve open when ignited - so the patio heater will stay on. I needed to give them the serial number (inside the propane tank door) and fax them a copy of the receipt.
Hope this helps.

Is this furnace standing pilot or electronic ignition. If standing pilot i would check furnace filter then the thermastat. To test themostat first turn power off to furnace. Take thermostat off wall and take wires labled R & W and connect them together. If you have electronic ignition I would start with cleaning the flame sensor with steel wool or wire brush.If you have and more questions i will be glad to help.

The click you hear is the gas valve shutting off flow. It does that because the thermocouple (a rod sticking into the flame of the pilot) voltage drops, usually below 13 millivolts or so. Might be a loose connection from thermo to valve body (should be finger tight plus 1/4 turn) or a bad thermo ($13 at Lowe's). Good Luck.

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.

Looks like an older system. Tighten all of your electrical connections. Inspect all of the low voltage wiring for any insulation cracks or other damage. The problem you describe sounds like something is either "shorting" or breaking down electrically. Unless the technician can catch it while he/she is there, it will be difficult to determine exactly what is happening. You might get lucky and resolve it yourself by tightening all electrical connections and reinsulating (use electrical tape) any damaged low voltage wire connections. If you continue to experience problems, get the tech. Hopefully the last company you used will be willing to work with you on the bill considering they were unable to "catch" it during the last visit.
Without being there with toolbox in hand, I hope you find this information very helpful moving forward. :-)

Flame sensor needs to be cleaned. turn off the furnace power switch or breaker. pull the flame sensor located in the burner runner section of the furnace. It will be easy to locate because it has 1 wire running to it. pull the screw being very careful not to harm anything else. get the sensor out. inspect it for cleanliness. clean the sensor with light grade sand paper gently. re-install the sensor plug the wire back on. restart your furnace and this should fix the problem.
