How can I stop the oven igniter continuing to spark after the oven has lit

This should not be a problem as the setup is it doesn't know which gas knob has been turned on, therefore the oven and grill spark to ignite either .

Hope this is helpful


PS if I had known the make and model number you can probably get a manual online.

What would cause the compressor to not turn on with a Carrier Model FY4A? The fan continuously runs but the A/C wil not turn on. The thermostat shows that it is cooling but the unit does not turn on.

Check power to outdoor condenceing unit. if no power reset breaker or change fuses.If they blow again you have a short in the unit. If you have power to unit and is still not comming on call a service provider!

Fan stops and heater continues to heat.

Hi, If the main fan stops blowing air but the burners continue to stay on and not shut off, this is dangerous. It sounds as though the fan control combination limit switch is faulty or stuck. The burners should shut off before the fan. If this unit only has a high limit for safety, it should shut the burners off when it reaches a predetermined temperature to keep the unit from burning up. That's why these safetys are in place. If your furnace has the combination fan/limit control, and it is stuck or has failed, this will cause the burners to run. I would turn the main gas off until the problem is found, or kill the power. Can you give me the age of the system, and model, serial numbers and the name of the heater? This would be of help. I would be very careful if you use it if its very cold where you are, and turn it on and off as needed. Do not go to sleep with it doing this for your safety,please. Get back to me if you will.

No air blowing inside the house thru vents;starts fine than stops

You are likely low on charge and the unit is freezing up. You need some with gauges to check. You should not try to run this unit until then or it will burn out the compressor.

My Heating system

Can you provide me with a make of the furnace and a model number if possible. They will be found on the heating system cabinet inside the unit, not on the thermostat.
