Question about Honeywell Air Conditioners

2 Answers

I have a dayton furnace with a honeywell vr8440p-2088 gas control. The ignition works fine but the problem is I am getting no gas it seems to light the pilot. I checked the orifices at the end of the pilot gas tube and could see light thru it so it was not blocked. Could this mean I would need to replace the gas valve completely? Any help appreciated pelogius@nethere.com

Actually, after exhaustive troubleshooting and testing, all testing told me the gas valve was defective. I then replaced it. Problem was still there. I then took a shot for what it was worth and went down to purchase a new thermocouple to sense the presence of a flame. The salesman told me to remove the pilot flame tube and make sure it is not clogged. I removed it and sure enough the end was completely clogged. After cleaning it I was off and running again. So it just goes to show you that manuals don't always present troubleshooting in an exact order of importance.
I called the salesman back and thanked him.

I had the same problem with the same honeywell vr8440p2088 gas controler.  I found out the nob to turn on the pilot was broken.  If you can pull the knob off it is broken.  The knob has two small teeth on it to keep the pilot and gas open.  good look finding a replacment knob as the part is not made anymore.  But there is a relacement part for it.  it just costs about 250.00.

Intertherm gas furnace in mobile home..igniter comes on then nothing tries to fire byrners but nothing


by igniter I assume you mean the thermocoupler. are you turning the control button to run after you light the pilot light? Normally when those furnaces quit it is the thermocoupler that has quit. Get a new one and leave it in the furnace compartment as a spare.

I have installed honeywell aquastat relay per instruction manual on my dunkirk xeb-4 lp boiler furance with honeywwell ignition unit s8610u but it wont ever start the exhaust fan checked everything several...


If aquastat wirings are ok, and control module had been set up properly, the the furnace should start.
Check if bypassing the control the furnace starts, if it starts then check aquastat wirings.
If it depends on the furnace, check the valve, the safety sensor and the ignitor.
Here is the guide to set up the Aquastat control:

I have a Carrier Weathermaker 8000 furnace. it will not light.I tested the igniter on my upstairs furnace and it will glow and light that furnace. I can manualy light the furnace with a match. flame sensor...


If you're sure the igniter is good and the controller is sending voltage to gas valve to open, but not to the igniter then, yes, the controller is bad. The only way to know for sure is to remove the igniter's molded plug from the board and test voltage directly at the board. You should get about 100-120 vac to the igniter.

Rheem gas furnace pilot lights, but no burners or fan


If the burners do not fully ignite, the sensor will shut the furnace down. The lack of sufficient burner flame is a gas valve or gas pressure problem within the valve.
Replacing the gas valve with the original one may get you going. I surely suggest a professional service company for safety reasons and a thorough inspection. A 20 year old furnace is past it's normal life span.

Furnace gas pilot light keeps going out when windy outside


Honeywell makes an electronic ignition conversion kit. (White rodgers also has one but it uses a mercury switch which can be expense if it goes bad). A good service man can install the "Honeywell Y86 Universal Intermittent Pilot Retrofit Kit". This is a "complete" kit for converting a standing pilot system to electronic ignition. It includes a new gas valve, ignition cables with connectors. ignition module and a pilot assembly. It does not include pilot tubing (pilot tubing is cheap). This kit also comes equipped for either natural gas or propane. Your heating guys probably don't know about it because they are to young and not familiar with the old days. Or they just don't care and would rather sell you a furnace. I think that they just don't care. I live in Ohio I just opened up the "new" Johnstone Supply catalog. This part is "not" outdated its on page 450. Do not let these heating guys buffalo you into a new furnace. You are to smart for that! If you weren't you would have believed them and bought something you don't need. Instead of researching on the internet.
The bad news is this kit lists for $456. plus labor.
Good luck!
