    thank you for the info paul :o)
    just for the sake of helping anyone else, I thought that it had to be a sensor so I followed the wire to the back of the sensor and was ready to replace it. I wanted to see how hard it would be to reach and how it was connected and low and behold with a gentle wiggle and litle push of the wire it made a better contact and the furnace is working just fine

Bryant plus 90 intermittent start-up


That's an intermittent problem. Could be: dirty filter, dirty blower wheel, dirty secondary heat exchanger, dirty evap. coil, weak or damaged high temp safety, loose wire connection, fault at control board, poor air flow. Just about 100 guesses! Could be's don't solve anything. Check for cleanliness. Clean flame sensor(flame rod that burner flame comes in contact with). These are the first I would try.

Right stove top burners won't ignite


Hello,
Your right side burners probably have small vertical lighting holes that are clogged where the pilot lights the burner. Use a sewing needle to poke each hole clean. While you're at it, poke clean the horizontal burner holes just to make sure they are not clogged either. Are there also little tunnels from the burners to each pilot flame? Make sure those are clean inside and attached properly on each end. The pilot flame should be approx 3/8" tall. Compare the working pilot flame to the non-working pilot flames and adjust as necessary. Each pilot has a small aluminum tubing running to it, the adjustment screw will be on this tube. You'll just need a small flat head screw driver to turn it counter-clockwise to increase flame. Hope this helps. Let us know if we can be of further assistance. Douglas

Pilot light will light, burner & blower comes on for a few minutes, pilot & burner go out, blower stays on.


Sounds like a bad or dirty flame sensor. Look for a sensor located in the flame of the very last burner that ignites. Take a toothbrush and scrub it a little. Then try again. Do not scrub the igniter as it is very brittle.

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.

Blower works but no heat


If in fact you have the above listed furnace, you do not have a pilot but electronic ignition. You will need to remove the front cover on the furnace, tape down the door safety switch and then have someone help you by turning up your thermostat to a very high setting. Watch and listen inside the furnace. There should be some blinking going on at the control board followed by a small blower fan starting up. Then after 10-15 seconds there should be a click followed by an orange glow viewed thru the viewing window to the burner section. In a few seconds the gas valve should click and the burners will ignite. There is a safety switch that will sense flame and then keep the gas going to the burners. If it does not sense it, it will shut it off within 10 seconds. If all is well so far, your blower will turn on in about 90 seconds after flame. There is a diagnostic code chart on the back side of the access door if you get an error code (blinking) on the control board.

Always check little things like air filter, condensate drain and broken or loose wires.

Heater blower motor cycles on and off (frequently). I have a class 2 LR95329 Honeywell Thermostat


The clicking noise is a relay or switch of some sort. You are right about that. I have 2 questions. 1) does the thermostat have a mercury bulb in it? 2) when the fan shuts off and on, does the burner stay on?
