Check the fuse, I believe it is a 3 Amp , there is also a safety switch, when you remove the panel it is on the top you can push it in and the light should light after a few seconds. Hope this helped Tim

Green LED light on circuit board is off. Fuse snaps as soon as you give power. Solution?

The green light being off simply means there's no power, if the fuse is blowing this isn't surprising. If your circuit board looks OK - no burn marks etc I think the most likely culprits are the components that get the mains voltage which are the two fans and the transformer. You tube has videos about checking these components with a multimeter.

Mr. heater model mhu45 combustion air blower will not start. len on circ uit board blinkiing s times. cleaned flu ahd vent exshaut.

On your heater, does it tell you a fault code for the number of blinks?

If you have cycled the power to the unit already, the fault code should have cleared. If the fault code cleared and then came back, sounds like either a issue the blower motor being shot, or a relay in between the ignition controller and or the ignition control is bad, not making the heater do anything.

Thermostat will not come on, therefore unit will not come on

Your thermostat is probably wired directly into the furnace to supply the 24V to power the stat. You have to make sure you're getting 120V into the primary side of the transformer, and 24V out of the secondary side. If you've got voltage in and nothing out replace the transformer with one of the same voltage, and same or higher VA rating. If you don't have 120V in then start checking backwards starting with power in/out of the door switch, then back to the unit disconnect switch, and back to the breaker if necessary. If you've got 24V out of the secondary go check to see you've got 24V at the thermostat between the R and C terminals, if you do the thermostat is bad. As with any electrical wiring make sure you've got good connections on all wiring terminations. Good luck, if you need an explanation of how to check the power in and out of the transformer let me know!

Green light is off on the circuit board. 120volts going to unit is ok. Couldn't find a fuse on circuit board?

There is most likely, a diode in line before the transformer. Also, check the switch and thermostat. To see if the thermostat works, connect an ohm meter to it, warm it up with a hair dryer, and than cool it down with a bag of ice or some canned air.

Goodman gmnt060 3b doesn't light

check for 24vac between wires on gas valve about 5-10 seconds after ignitor starts to glow. If ignitor does not glow, check for 120 vac to ignitor after inducer goes on.
First...sequence of operation..power to W, inducer motor gets 120v and starts, 10-15 seconds later, ignitor gets 120v and glows, 5-10 seconds, gas valve gets 24v and opens, after 3-4 seconds the flame sensor approves flame and unit stays on. If this is not happening, it has to be in this sequence. Which ever is not happening and you do have voltage to that component, that component is bad. If you are getting a error code on board after it tries to light, pay attention to the code. if a 1 lock out code, that just means it tried 3 times and did not recognize a flame.

Mr. Heater Natural Gas Garage Heater - 45,000 BTU. Power 120 volt and 24 volt good. Thermostat calling for heat, but nothing happening??

Check for a fuse either in-line or on the circuit board. There should be 24 volts going to the thermostat. If not, you have either a bad transformer or a bad thermostat wire. Jump out the terminals that the thermostat wires are connected to. This should force the unit to fire. If not, bad circuit board.

It wont turn on

If nothing will come on check the breaker to the indoor section, check that the service switch by the in door section is on and the blower door cover is tightly closed. If all these junctions are transmitting power then it may be a burned out transformer. If you can check for 120v on the primary coil of the transformer and 24v on the secondary that would tell you where the problem is. If theres no voltage on either side then backtrack from the transformer on the 120v side till you find 120v. If theres 120v but no 24v your transformer secondary is burned out. If theres both then the problem is downstream from the transformer: circuit board 3amp fuse, loose wiring.
