Hi,

The relay on the circuit board for the inducer is stuck closed....
The reason you have to turn down the t-stat or recycle the power is that for the system to refire the pressure switch must open and then close again, which it does in either of those cases....
To fix the problem you will need to repplace the circuit board....

Check with your dealer for a new board or you can buy it on the internet...

You have a dirty or bad heat sensor. When you remove the front panel on you furnace you will see a probe that is 2 or 3 inches long that is in the flame when the furnace fires up. If it doesn't detect a certain temperature within the first 30 or 40 seconds it shuts down the furnace. You can either clean the probe off with sandpaper, or purchase a new one. They aren't very expensive and are easy to replace. In my experience it is usually a build up of carbon on the sensor and a good cleaning with sandpaper and alcohol usually takes care of the problem.

Pilot lights up but would not fire up into heating, I have brivis buffalo 85


This is the proper cycle of a furnace and what should happen.

Inducer motor kicks on, it runs for a little bit, about 3-5 seconds, then you should see a bright yellow glow, this is the igniter, shortly after, you should hear a click and the gas should start to flow, almost immediately it turns to a blue flame. Then your igniter should turn off and the blower motor start up.

If the pilot turns on and the gas ignites, then shortly after the unit shuts off, chances are this is your blower motor. It is not starting up, then the heat limit is reached in your unit and the safety shuts it off.

Sounds like a faulty board. shut the power to the furnace off for a minute then turn it back on. Make a call for heat at the thermostat. The inducer should start and close contacts on a pressure switch . Once pressure switch closes the hot surface ignitor should glow red. Then the gas valve will open when the gas valve opens you should get fire till the stat is satisfied. If your concerned it is the jump out r to w on the board this will eliminate the stat. If you to reset the rollout switchs 3 timesyou're getting flame rollout and you either have a cracked heat exchanger or blockage in the exhaust piping or a bad inducer motor. Keep me posted with what you find!

Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad ignitor what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor.If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

First make sure that your thermostat is turned to heat and auto settings. Then turn up t-stat to where it should be calling for heat.If nothing happens then make sure you have power to heater, gas valve is turned on and blower compartment door is securely latched. If still nothing turn t-stat to fan on and the blower should come on and run until you shut it off. If it does this then you know that you have power to furnace and that the blower works.After you are sure that you have power then remove thermostat cover from base. If stat wires are connected to front of base then disconnect red and white wires and temporairly touch them together. This should send power to your furnace and start the ingnition cycle. If this works then replace thermostat. The sequence of events in the ignition cycle are t-stat calls for heat, induced draft motor comes on and runs for about 20 seconds,then ignitor comes on and lights pilot,then burner lights for 1-2 mins and then blower comes on. I would start at the t-stst and work my way through it. If I can be of any help please ask. Thank you

Gas Furnace will not start when outside temperature rises to 50F


There is a pressure switch near your draft inducer motor that needs to close when draft inducer motor is running. Verify that the switch is closing. If it is not closing, you might have a problem with either the switch itself, or there could be some sort of blockage in your flue. I would start with the switch first. This switch has to "prove" before it will allow anything else to happen. The loud click could be from your switch or your gas valve. If the switch is closing and nothing else is happening, it could be a problem with your gas valve or HSI.

Goodman GS9 propane furnace inducer motor runs continuously


it sounds like the low temp limit switch, the one that cools the furnace down with the burner off and the thermostat open, when it cools to a point the fan stops, the other switch in burner area turns burner off/on, hope this helps
