Turn on the power to the furnace, turn on the gas valve light the pilot light some haveor had on the gas valve a push button when trying to light it you must press the button and hold it for a minute until the thermocouple warms up then let go of the button and turn the gas valve all the way on. Next is to turn up the thermostat and enjoy the warmth.

Honeywell RTH2300 says Heat On, but furnace isn't running.


Your tstat is not the problem. I've not yet worked on an oil furnace. I'm way down south. But either way, if your tstat was calling for heat(heat on), and you pushed a reset at the furnace, more than likely that reset is a safety. OK to reset, but now what ever that safety is preventing from happening, has failed and can not be reset until repaired. The reset should be an automatically opening switch upon unsafe operation. And manually closed to "reset" the safety. That safety is connected to something that is not working properly. Hope this helps!

Assuming not talking soot smoke . new furnaces have a coating on heat exchanger from productions which must be burnt off.

Hello,
From what you are telling me here, you have a loose wire inside the furnace. You could try giving it a bump again and it may work. But prbably not for long...
You need to find the bad wire or have someone look at it that can tell where the bad connection is.

Furnace wont run


First of all when you flip the switch, it goes thru a startup sequence. THEN it turns on the Igniter (notice the red glow). Then the gas turns on.

Now at this point check the idiot light and it should be giving you a code of 34. That 34 (3 shorts 4 longs) says that there was a problem igniting the furnace. After it cycles thru at least 4 times and fails to ignite all the blowers, then is when you get a code 14 (1 short 3 longs)

NOTICE what's happening with ALL the burner Tubes each time it attempts to ignite. If only one or two are running....then this is your problem.
To fix all you do is take out the burner Tubes, look for debris, blow them out (blow from the front where all the jets are), and replace them in sequence from left to right (the tabs overlap).
