This furnace has a diagnostic light on the control board found in the lower section of the furnace. Pilots are a thing of the past and your system has a glow ignitor. Look thru a small viewing port to see how many blinks are being displayed. Then remove the access panel and on the reverse side of it is a diagnostic chart that will tell you where to start looking. I would suggest you make sure the air filter is clean and that the condensation is being removed. Recycle the furnace with either the breaker or emergency switch. You can cycle the furnace with the front cover off if you tape the door switch closed. It may be easier to view the sequence of operation to pick up on where the fault is occuring.

Finding Pilot light on Goodman Model caf024a2a. Cannot seem to find the pilot light...The blower works but no heat.

i think the ca # is for the cooling coil unit - the heater should start with gmXXXXX - if your unit is fairly new - the pilot light electronically when thermostat calls for heat the unit will not light if the burner door is open

Pilot on but no heat to radiators

There is a gas valve inside the heater (is it on?), There is also sometimes an electric starter that goes bright on start (is it?), Do you hear whirring noises on start? Is the valve switch set to ON?

I have one of these and if the pilot (electrical) turns on and the gas is not flowing then is senses a heat failure and stops. Then on the control board light blinks (seen through plastic cover).

These also have to spin an exhaust fan, that bearing sticks, if it fails to turn, the unit will fail to start after 1 min. Does any of that makes sense?
