SOURCE: gas dryer mod.# MDG6000BWW, Igniter lights but no flame

Replace the flame sensor on the side of the heat canister. You may also have to replace the gas valve coils.

Fan turns on, pilot on left side turns on red light at bottom stays solid during entire time then pilot goes out and blower stops no heat please help


On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remaing solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

My Home propane tank was empty, I just had it filled, but when I go to turn on the heat, a flame icon comes up. I noticed on the heater it has an on/off switch for the automatic pilot light. I am not sure...


Make sure all switches are on and open. It may take a few attempts to get gas to the burners so you may have to reset the furnace by either the Emergency switch or circuit breaker. If it takes longer than 3 tries, you may have a gas regulator problem and will need to call your gas company for repair. The regulator belongs to the gas company so they shouldn't charge you to repair or replace.

Having problems with Carrier 58RAV furnace. Goes through the motions, but gas never turns on. I think it is a problem with the LPGS. Please advise. Thanks

Heater is on firing up- everything seems ok but there is nogas-goes thru the cycle with igniter glow orange but does not ignite- there doesnt seem to have any gas present to ignite weathermaker 8000


the igniter has to have proper omhos to open gas valve.
recommend replacing igniter. be careful not to touch new igniter with bare hands. oils in the skin of your hands will cause the igniter to get too hot and burn out quick

I hate to admit it but this is a common problem with the Honeywell S86A control. If you can find a heating slpy house neat you that sells to the public your lucky, more than likely you will have to get it from a heating company. a carrier/bryant/payne/day&night (all made by carrier) should have one on hand.

Automatic Eletric Ignition stopped working


It's is normal for the ignitors not to work when wet, once they dry they should work. The best thing is to check the electric sending unit, they are a small white kind of square that goes on the switch, just lift the knobs and take the cover of the switches and you should see the sending units righ on the rod that hold the knobs, they have to small wires attached to them, It seems to me that thats were your problem is.
Do you hear the click clik when you put the knob on LITE??

Windsor sensor sr12


There is a downloadable manual from http://www.windsorind.com/ go to documents, and note it is in alphabetical order -- so page through to "sensor" or you can search on the word "sensor" (don't include SR12). Also excellent training video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikhtNFEKpeg.

I think, but not validated yet, that the Sensor SR12 (residential model) has been discontinued as I found it listed in their manuals under the discontinued section as well.
