Is the gas valve that feeds the appliance open all the way, or the flex pipe is kinked.

Do the other burners that work on this device?. If yes then the above advise is is not the problem.

The other issue could be the controller is not sencing that the flame is lit so it closes the electronic valve.

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP


when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

Janitrol GUPS075-3 Furnace burners will not stay lit


The first thing I would do is make sure the flame sensor is clean, this is a metal rod immersed in the burner flame on the opposite side of the igniter. If too much oxidation builds up on it, it will not allow the burner to stay lit. To clean, just turn off furnace and remove flame sensor and clean with steel wool and then reinstall. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the gas valve.

Inductor blower comes on and runs then the ignitor glows flame comes up and burns for approx. 10-15 sec then goes out then fan comes on. Model number is PBKMLB12N0B0F I believe this is a goodman furnace.


I cleaned the sensor that was at the the right further most burner on my Goodman and it worked. got the answer to my problem here at fixya. My burner flame only lasted 5 secs before it shut off. Thanks to all who took the time to send me a response.

Heater will light but when gas is injected stays lit for 5 seconds then goes out


I would start with the flame sensing rod. There is a small metal rod approx 2 inches long with the diameter of a wire coat hanger.It has one wire attached to it which goes to the gas control board. It is mounted in front of one of the burners (often the burner furthest from the ignitor). This sensor sometimes develops a light coating that works like an insulator which will prevent it from sending the proper signal to the board to allow the gas valve to remain lit. In this case, the solution is simple: take a scotchbrite pad and lightly rub the flame sensing rod. This will remove the coating and allow for a proper signal to the board. Take care not to break the ceramic insulator, dislodge one of the burners, or to mistake the Hot Surface Ignitor for the flame sensing rod. The Hot Surface ignitor is the part that glows red and ignites the gas when the valve opens. It is extremely delicate. It has two wires (not one) and looks nothing like a single rod as I described the flame sensor. However, it too is mounted in front of a burner.
I hope you find this helpful. Good Luck! :-)

I have aGibsonGMPN 060-3 gas furnace. The ignitor


May have a dirty flame rod. Look in the burner box at either the far right or far left for a probe that sticks in the flame of a burner. There will be only one wire going to it. This rod is a safety sensor that shuts off the gas if it does not sense flame within a few seconds. If you brush off the rod with a toothbrush or Scotch Brite pad it may take care of your problem. If not, make sure the flame travels from burner to burner quickly. The burner tray may need to be brushed off.

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.

I have a goodman gmpn 100-4 REVB furnace that will not stay lit


If the igniter lights the burners the ignitor..... is not bad. Its like a light bulb.... it works or ot doesn't.
You are describing a dirty flame sensor. Dishonest contractors will sell you a new ignitor but clean the flame sensor when the are installing the ignitor. It is located at the opposite end of the burners than the ignitor. It has one wire going to it. Remove it and clean the rod with a piece of fine grit sandpaper. this should be done every year before heating season.
Good luck

Potterton heater comes on a then goes of after about ten minutes


if it lights for about 3 seconds and then goes off, you may have a dirty flame sensor. usually this sensor looks like a metal rod that sticks in front of one of the burners. it will have a single wire with a spade connector running to it. usually the ignitor will be on one end of the burner row and the flame sensor on the opposite end. you can remove the wire and take the flame sensor out. use some steel wool or emery cloth to shine it up real good. try this and let me know. if it doesn't work, give more details like make and model of furnace and approx. age.

I have a problem with my heating system. It is about 10 years old and has had the ignitor, combustion blower motor, and programable thermostat replace in it's lifetime. The system worked great last year....


sounds like its not proofing flame. it has a sensor usually like a needle sticks out into the flame that tells the gas valve the flame lit and is burning so its ok to keep sending gas, if its fails to proof flame then burner shuts down, then it tries to relight 3 times then locks out on fail safe. the blower will sometimes run continually once that occurs to highlight a failed condition. every time you reset it will try again 3 times then shut down. lp gas is very dangerous, even i do not work on it as the gas acts like gasoline and lays around. not like natural gas that disperses well. if you see the flame sensor try gently cleaning it with a little emory cloth. also a loose ground can cause this. check tio be sure any green wires are snug , they actually flow volts to ground through the flame on some to proof, thats why no ground no flame. if that fails then the board is most likely problem. change wire for wire , or get generic replacemant and follow directions exactly. good luck.some ignitors act as a flamre proofer as soon as they are done igniting! rarely do they fail to perform both funtions.
