Question about Coleman Propane Forced Air Heater w/Electronic Ignition (50,000-80,000 BTU)

1 Answer

PROPANE IGNITER We have had our igniter replaced twice in a year. The repair man said our washer shaking could make it go out. Is this correct? Where can we buy these igniters?? My husband watched him put it in, and our son-in-law is an electician. Thanks Bonnie

I have never seen one go bad because of a dryer. I would call heating companies in your area and ask them to sell a igniter.Have the brand,model and serial number for the heater. You could get one off the Internet to. I would pull out the igniter and make sure the screw is tight and that the deflector doesn't it the igniter

Some of my burners will not lite...i see a small spark. It will light if i use a lighter. what part will solve the issue?


There is likely a buildup of crud inside of the gas unit - this can best be cleared with a toothpick poked into the gas jet holes - specifically the holes in front of the igniter. It is also likely the igniter is sparking, but not enough to light up the gas. Theoretically, very little spark is needed to light propane - but I think we've both seen that as not such a practical theory!! If cleaning out the holes ( I would also remove the burner and shake out the crud ) doesn't work, then I would consider replacing the igniter. It is not difficult to replace and your local BBQ store should have igniters in stock. Take the old igniter with you to match it up, to be sure you get the right configuration for your Q. Best of luck in this and Merry Christmas - AND thanks for using Fixya!!

There is likely an onboard relay stuck in the open position.

This is a gas appliance and should be serviced by an authorized BOSCH repair center to avoid potential catastrophe.

Sounds like your gas valve is sticking. Your repair man is somewhat correct by meaning that the furnace will attempt to start 3 times before going out on "Lock-out". The furnace is reaching it's expected life and you will start experiencing more frequent issues with it. Check into some of the incentives to get a replacement with a higher efficiency rating. The newer units have greatly improved in performance as well as comfort.

Burner igniter won't click or work


This is an easy problem to fix. If your repair man is correct and it is the spark module and not a wire harness problem you can pick up a spark module as sears for about $37 and it only takes a couple of minutes to install. Just pull off the back panel and replace the module. This is a repair that anyone can do. I would recommend unplugging the unit before replacing.

How to install an igniter?


if the heater uses a hot surface igniter its a simple matter of unscrewing the igniter and replacing it with another unit. if it is a spark ignition, the spark wire is a heavy insulated wire that goes to the gap. check out white-rodgers for a replacement. if your furnace uses a purge mode get a purge cycle programmable igniter.
