Make sure the blower access panels are on firmly. There is a safety switch on most gas furnaces that will prevent operation in the event the blower access panel is not on or loosened. Also make sure a power switch (sometimes looks like a light switch) was not accidentally left "off". :-)

I hope you find this to be very helpful moving forward.

If the blower access panel is not the problem, let us know and we'll dig deeper. :-)

    Was the blower access door the problem or do you need additional help?



    I look forward to hearing back from you. :-)

B&S deep fryer heats up to set temp..like 170c, then pilot light turns off.try to relit,no good.if i wait10..20min.I can relit it.but when reach temp,flame goes out again.


The high limit is shutting the fryer off. It is auto reset and that is why the fryer works after waiting. It sounds like the thermostat is not shutting off and the high limit is kicking in. You need to check the actual temperature of the oil.

Why does my furance not turn on when the pilot lite is lit?


Apparently it is not calling for heat. The thermostat needs to close. If it is wired correctly and the stat closes and it still does not start something is bad in the control section. You need to get a tech to help you. Randomly jumping wires is asking for a disaster.

The pilot light on the water heater went out and the red light is blinking four times on the thermostat (Honeywell WV8860B1317). How do I get this to stop so that the pilot light can be relit?


The flashing light 4 times indicates high water temperature has activated the over heat sensor, and that the only remedy is to replace the gas control valve/thermostat.

My totaline thermostat model #p474-0100-a the backlight is staying on and when the furance is running after only a couple of minutes it shuts off and my furance shuts down .


Multiple issues that are not related. If the pilot light goes out then the thermocouple might be bad. If the pilot ignites the gas and everything shuts off, it sounds like the over temperature sensors are detecting heat in excess of what is allowed in the firebox. The thermostat issue has nothing to do with this.

Can not operate the furance, it just wont come on


Sounds like more is wrong than the thermostat. If gas heat,make sure the pilot light is lit and there is gas pressure.If fuel oil,you may have to press the restart button on the burner unit. or blead the the pump.

If you have a newer style programmable thermostat there are batteries in the thermostat that need replacing. Otherwise look at the thermostat wiring. If you have a voltmeter. check for 24 volts ac on the terminal with the red wire and the one marked C. If no voltage is there either a fuse is bad or the 24 volt control transformer is bad.

No heat gas log furance


if it has a pilot light, then it would not have an ignitor. also if it has a pilot light, it should have a knob that has settings for just the pilot light, just off, or on. Find that knob and check settings

THE FURANCE IS ABOUT 20 YEARS OLD I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT WENT TO TURN IT ON AND IT WOUNDNT COME ON CHECK POLIT LITE IT WAS OUT WENT TO LITE IT AND IT WOUNDNT LITE


Replace the thermocouple. It is the brass or copper tube that goes into the pilot light to detect the heat from the flame. If it is burned out, the gas valve will not open and the pilot will not light. They are universal and cost less than $10.

My hot water tanks pilot light turns off after I have relit it. It stayed on while heating the water in the tank and once it stopped heating the pilot light went out again. What would be causing my...


are you holding button down long enough for thermal coupler to warm up? after pilot lights up, don't immediately let go of button for about 15 to 20 seconds then let go and pilot should stay on. If not, you may need a new thermal coupler for that water heater

Furance won't lite


The first thing i would do is turn thermostat down and turn power off wait for a few minutes then turn power back on and then thermostat back up. If it has a ignition module then there should be a blower motor. It should come on then a pressure switch that should click then the ignitor should glow or spark. there should be a round glass circle that you can look through to see the ignitor
