Check the fuel and tank. If it has been a while since fuel has been refilled, or it has sat without, you may have water in the tank.

Furnace comes on igniter comes on but gas dont


First shut off power to unit then check all wiring in control compartment. Look for any unhooked wires especially at gas valve and at control board. If no problem there then run unit and see if your gas valve is getting 24v at the terminal marked MV on the valve. Do this by putting one meter lead (red) on MV and one lead (black) on a good ground such as the metal of the cabinet itself. About 5 or ten seconds after the igniter begins to glow the board should send 24v to the valve. If it doesnt then the board thinks the igniter is not working or the board is bad. If there is 24v then the gas valve is bad but you can try giving the valve a few good raps with the handle of a screwdriver. This will sometimes free up the solinoid inside the valve but is only a temporary fix you will need a new valve. All this is assuming you have a hot surface igniter.

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.

Reset the unit once it is refilled by pushing the power button and holding it down for 5 seconds before releasing. This should reset your unit to factory settings.
