Question about Goodman Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Goodman forced air heating system in my attic that's only about 3 years old and I believe the pilot light went out last night in a storm. My problem is that I can't locate the pilot in the unit nor can I see a model number for the unit. I'm thinking it's a gh80 but could be wrong. Any help would be appreciated. MD

Marc, look for where the gas line enters the furnace and remove the panel adjacent to it. That should gibe you access to the pilot light. Also, look for a pilot access door, near where the gas line enters the furnace. The gas line will either be 1/2" flexible copper tubing. 1/2" black iron pine or 1/2" vinyl coated flexible stainless steel. Look for the lighting instructions inside or on the side of the unit.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

I have an old Intertherm 911030 that has a pilot. I would like to change it to an electronic ignition. The furnace info say MG-055A. Is this possible?This is used in a park model home. thanks


Hello Denise Zier,

In our area...
the local gas (PG&E) company had a subsidized program the make the CONVERSION ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE...

It is POSSIBLE... but without any subsidy...
I'd seriously check out the prices of a complete new heater... and weigh the benefits against the cost...

((not to mention newer heaters are JUST MORE efficient)).


The conversion involves changing out the entire gas valve, adding a compatible control (logic) board, thermocouple, pilot head and most likely a hot surface igniter (likely a new transformer too).

All done by a CERTIFIED INSTALLER (w/PERMIT).

I'm sure the "NEW" conversions are more reliable than the old "NEW" conversions... I didn't want to become knowledgeable about the... but I did... and before COMPLETELY replacing the
heater.. went back the OLD PILOT... just to get warm.

I'm just saying... Now we have the heat-pump...
pretty in-efficient... but with SOLAR PANELS...
who really cares (aah warmth at last).

Pictures are SAMPLES ONLY... Not applicable to you.

Have a goodman gas pack and we lost power due to winter storm over night so now my unit is running but only cold air coming out


the pilot light runs from a very small gas jet and should not be affected by the power outage
however that is not to say that the jet may have frozen over and become blocked putting out the pilot light
AS the system needs power to drive the fan it is possible that without the fan and safety system working , the main gas supply solenoid would have shut down and that could have affected the pilot light
with the power reinstalled try lighting the pilot light
I would say that there would be a pizo starter on the front of the unit to light the pilot loght

Had three 50-gal American Standard water heaters installed Dec. 2009 Two upstairs in attic, one downstairs at ground level. Attic location used because heaters being replaced were up there. Upstairs...


Plumber is right.
Problem is not amount of air in attic. Problem is how hot the air is.
Oxygen molecules separate apart in very hot air and pilot light goes out since there is not enough oxygen density to support combustion.

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Attic-Ventilation-and-Pilot-Outage-in-Gas%20Water-Heaters.pdf

More ventilation is needed.
Plumber is not ventilating expert, and not responsible for attic ventilation that builder failed to install. Plumber should do a survey of location before installation to make sure gasoline vapors are not stored nearby, but summer attic ventilation is gray area until more general-public folks become aware of problem. Hotter summers temperatures will spread that information.

Hire local home center to install roof vents AND soffit vents.
Note: You also need soffit vents.
Remember a vent on the roof is like sucking air out of a coke bottle. The roof vent is no good unless air can also enter the attic from another vent located in the soffit.

Another solution is electric water heater for very hot locations.
Or install solar-assisted water heater.

Why does my AC keep freezing (Carrier FB4ANF036). I have replaced the blower motor less than a month ago due to the same problem. Just last night we had a lightening storm and shortly after that the AC...


if your system is a heat pump you can switch to heat and see if coil outside gets cold while indoor blows warm air - then switch back to a/c - both coils should not be cold at the same time - low freon pressure / dirty coil / dirty filter / low air flow causes freezing

This could be due to a freon leak or the condenser unit needs cleaning also the evaporator in the attic should also be cleaned and inspected. If cold sweat is not seen outside on the large line going into the outside unit I believe you may have a freon leak. Sea Breeze
