Janitrol GUPS075-3 Furnace burners will not stay lit


The first thing I would do is make sure the flame sensor is clean, this is a metal rod immersed in the burner flame on the opposite side of the igniter. If too much oxidation builds up on it, it will not allow the burner to stay lit. To clean, just turn off furnace and remove flame sensor and clean with steel wool and then reinstall. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the gas valve.

Is there a way to check for gas pressure even if just a slight loosened connection to hear it then quickly re-tightened. Otherwise the main valve is not working as it should and will need to be serviced or replaced. Thats all i got.

Empire Hearter (old unit) Model # DU 215-7SG Pilot light goes on and stay on but the main burner will not ignite.


I notice that I have the same problem and the wire coming out of the frame on the outside opposite where the thermocouple attaches to the frame on the inside goes nowhere. Shouldn't that wire connecting to something? If so, exactly where is the point of attachement of that wire? It should control the opening of the main gas value somehow.
