Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My 1985 Kenmore furnace is not starting. It has a Honeywell DSI. There is a nice spark going on, but it seems no gas is coming in. (The water heater is connected to the same gas line, and it fires-up allright) Looks like the honeywell valve does not allow the gas to pass thru. Any hints?

You need tools. You need to check if there is any open sensors not allowing electrical current to travel back to the gas valve and open up like normal. Turn the furnace on check to see if you hear the gas valve click if u here it click and no gas comes out you have a bad valve. But most likely its a sensor problem.

When i turn the heat up sometimes it takes a long time for the gas furnace to start ..why?


Watch your furnace when you turn the thermostat up...make sure to record everything that it is doing. If you have an induced draft, forced air system, then the heat sequence of order should go like this... Initial call for heat from tstat, Inducer vent motor turns on-pulls in the pressure switch, circuit board sends power to igniter whether it is spark or hot surface, then gas valve opens. Flame sensor senses flame, burner stays on, and blower motor kicks in to heat the space. If you notice any variance from this, then something needs to be checked by an HVAC Service Tech.

Is the honeywell wv8840B1109 like a smart meter. I was concerned after they installed this on my new water heater. It's basically an alarm for if the pilot shuts off. Seems awfully big to just be for that....


Thanks for photo link. Not a smart meter.
Just ordinary water heater gas control valve, with small circuit board to support error codes:
Copy following link for handy resources:

http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-Honeywell-gas-control-valve.html
How the newer gas control valves are different: Old water heater had thermocouple which supplies very tiny current to gas control valve. When pilot light blows out, the thermocouple no longer sends tiny current and gas control valve shuts off gas to heater.
New gas water heaters have thermopile (just like modern furnaces and stoves), which is basically several thermocouples bunched together. So thermopile sends more current to gas control valve, and supplies enough current to power small circuit board. The circuit board records error events and issues simple error codes. If pilot blows out, then thermopile no longer sends current and gas control valve shuts off gas to heater.
Moreover, the new gas control valve can be repaired and replaced without removing from tank. So tank does not have to be drained... saving time and repair cost.

Honeywell thermostat RTH6580WF heat is ok but a/c doesnt cool


Same problem here. Gas, hot air furnace with A/C. Fan works with heat, but not A/C. Furnace is old, and I had to move the G wire to C at the furnace, plus install a jumper from Y to G.

What does DSI mean when referring to RV water heaters?


D.S.I. = Direct Spark Ignition. You would have a 12 volt switch inside RV, that when turned to ON, will ignite water heater automatically, provided ignition module and rest of components are there, or come with new water heater. Otherwise you would have to go outside with a lighter/matches or whatever and manually start the water heater.

Furnace will not heat.


Most of the Lennox G-16s that I have repaired were having problems with the gray Penn-Johnson Piggyback igniton control module.
This is best repaired by replacing the spark module. Sometimes it may be neccesary to replace the gas valve also. Lennox updated to a ROBERTSHAW ignition system. Honeywell can also be used.
Also check that there is no water in the pressure switch or tube.
Hope this helps.
