Frigidaire furnace model # FG6RA 096C 16B

When I replace the metal cover on the unit the the gas flame comes on turns blue and right before the blower kicks on the flame goes out and the blower just blows cold air. When the cover is off or even just not completely covering the opening the unit has no problem. What do I need to check?

We have a 1998 frigidaire furnace. M#FG6RA 072C-12A. It has a mind of its own! there is a red light that flashes 3 times.

Check the electrical panel cover for the schematic and see if the flashes are listed with their troubleshooting codes. If not check any documentation that came with the unit, or go on the internet and do a Google search.

Dayton gas furnace model 3e385 works and lights but as soon as fan comes on the unit shuts off and lights again wondering what was wrong

Check heat exchanger for cracks or holes which will cause the fan to blow out the flames. The flame sensor on the pilot or burners has to be in constant contact with flame to operate normally. If the flame is put out by a cracked exchanger the exchanger or furnace needs to be replaced.

Nordyne furnace. The furnace comes on, flame comes on, blower comes on and then works for about 3 second and shuts off. Then starts the cycle all over again.

Hello. The first thing you can do is check the flame sensor, this is a small metal rod on the opposite side of the ignitor, Turn off power to the unit remove flame sensor and clean it with some steel wool. Also check the flame sensor to make sure there are no cracks in the base of it, if so then replace the flame sensor. If you have checked the flame sensor and the problem still continues you might have a problem with the unit not being grounded properly, you should have a ground wire coming from the main electrical panel to the furnace. If the ground wire is there and problem continues the control board should be replaced. I hope this helps.

Flame Adjustment

Make sure the unit is operating on the correct gas, Natural or Propane (LP). The sound you are experiencing is either not enough gas and the flame is burning inside the burner port(s) or too much gas and the flame is much larger than it has to be. At any rate, get a technician to check the gas pressure entering into the home. NOW!
