Re: goodman heating element does not light

The flame sensor is not sensing flame. Inspect the system as it is tying to start and see if the flames are traveling to all burners and hitting the sensor. If not, clean the burner flame rail (the trough the allows the flame to travel from one burner to the next) or if it is hitting the sensor, clean the sensor with steel wool and check all connections from the sensor to the control board.

How to fix a pressure switch on a goodman Gms807034ana

Since the burners light this eliminates the pressure switch as the problem. Typically when the burners come on and shut off quickly a flame sensor, ground problem or the limit switch tripping are the main reasons. Since the flame sensor has been replaced, check the limit switch

I have a goodman furnace with a solid red light. Says normal operation, but ignitor does not light. Unplugged ignitor and still solid light. Could it be the circuit board or something else? Blower

Usually you can visually inspect the igniter, looking for any cracks or breaks in the element. The best way to check it is with a volt meter to see if your getting the 120v to the plug itself, putting your leads in each of the prongs on the plug. If you are not getting the voltage, it's usually the board. Make sure all connections are tight. The heating sequence will be: 1. Inducer motor starts 2. You will hear a click from the board, it telling the igniter to light. It should start to glow. 3. Next click will be the gas valve opening and flames on. 4. Blower motor starts. Hope this helps!

I HAVE A GOODMAN HEAT PUMP, MODEL AR30-1. I switched off the heat pump at the stat and the elements seem to be running heating up the unit... Also what is the brown wire coming from the wiring harness for...

The brown wire on a Goodman is tipically for the emergency heat option on your heat pump. First thing I would check is making sure it is wited correctly. Verify your stat is heat pump capable. Many of the cheaper stats only work for ac or just a heat pump. Anything beyond that would be a more serious electrical problem and should be looked at by someone with the proper training and tools.

Goodman furnace

double check your wiring. R terminal on the furnace will provide 24 volts to the t-stat. W terminal in the t-stat will send 24 volts back to the furnace W terminal to turn on the heat. G terminal in the t-stat will send power to the G terminal in the furnace when the t-stat is switched to fan on. Y terminal in the t-stat will send power to the Y terminal in the furnace which in turn will send 24 volts to the A/C outside. The C terminal in the furnace should be connected to the c terminal in the A/C outside as well as to the T-stat. Check the fuse again

The heat no longer comes on.

The Lakewood 5500 heater may not heat, yet all lights are on, due to the thermal fuse inside the control box being blown.

It works like a normal fuse, yet will blow if the temperature gets too hot. When it opens, it will prevent any electricity to get to the heating coils and connot be reset. It must be replaced.

You can open the control area by removing the front foot of the unit, removing another screw behind that foot. This will allow you to slide the whole control end off the unit. At the bottom next to the heating element, you will notice 3 wires to the elements - red, blue, & white.

The white wire runs underneath the terminals & is sheathed. Under this sheath is the thermal fuse.

Be sure to replace it with the same temperature rating (167 C).

I don't recommend bypassing the thermal fuse, however, due to it's a safety issue.

I found the fuse at the following link:

15 year old goodman heater is cycling. heating element glows red and the burners turn on for 20 seconds and then goes out. fan is in the on position . after the first light the element turns red but...

Sounds like the flame is either not traveling to the flame sensor or the flame sensor is dirty or bad. Look to the far left of the burner box for a probe near a burner. Lightly scrape and debris from the probe. The probe will have only one wire going to it. Do not touch the igniter or it will break.

AIR or Heat wont come on/ goodman GMP075-3

If there is no blinking light, then the unit is not seeing a call for heat or cool. My guess is a lose or broken wire in the thermostat circuit. Try and putting a jumper across the red and white heat terminals inside the furnace and manually closing the door switch. If you get heat, it's telling you there is a wiring issue. If you get nothing, it's a bad circuit board.
