Ignition failure. insure air pressure switch closes, hot surface igniter is getting 120volts. check continuity on hot surface igniter, make sure all gas shut off valves are open and gas valve is turned on. make sure there is no blockage in the exhaust

SOURCE: No heat, trouble shooting light has continious flash.

There is a vacuum sensor on most units tied from the exhaust gas fan to the sensor. Does the unit try to start? If the unit's exhaust fails to pull the switch it will turn off after about 30-45 sec after starting. "IT" thinks it's not exhausting and stops to keep from overheating. Do you have this exhaust fan and rubber hose to sensor? Can you see if that fan is turning on start?

1
1 FLASH
Furnace fails to operate.
• Integrated control module
diagnostic LED is
flashing ONE (1) flash.
• Furnace lockout due
to an excessive
number of ignition
“retries” (3 total)1.
• Failure to establish flame.
Cause may be no gas to
burners, front cover
pressure switch stuck open,
bad igniter or igniter
alignment, improper orifices,
or coated/oxidized or
improperly connected flame
sensor.
• Loss of flame after establishment.
Cause may be
interrupted gas supply, lazy
burner flames (improper gas
pressure or restriction in flue
and/or combustion air
piping), front cover pressure
switch opening, or improper
induced draft blower
performance.
• Locate and correct gas
interruption.
• Check front cover
pressure switch
operation (hose, wiring,
contact operation).
Correct if necessary.
• Replace or realign
igniter.
• Check flame sense
signal. Sand sensor if
coated and/or oxidized.
• Check flue piping for
blockage, proper
length, elbows, and
termination.
• Verify proper induced
draft blower performance.

SOURCE: no hot surface igniter

This is why swapping parts is never a good idea. It could be a board, pressure switch, or several other issues. I'm a service technician and realize that many furnace issues are difficult to diagnose over the phone, or internet.
Calling a qualified, NATE certified technician to diagnose and repair this properly is probably the best solution that I could suggest. Yes, there will be a bill and it will be expensive, but it will be a lot less so than changing out parts you might not need.

SOURCE: goodman gmnt100-4b wont ignite

I had the same problem. I had to remove a return air duct filter that i had installed and it worked just fine. The system needs plenty of air flow to operate.

SOURCE: gmt090-4 furnace the igniter and gas valve relays

This unit is equiped with a diagnostic light and will blink a number of times indicating where to start looking for the problem. Find a small viewing port that looks right on to the control board. Count the number of blinks. Then find the wiring diagram and there will be a diagnostic chart where you can compare what the number of blinks represent. Let us know what you find.

Will not fire led light flashing 2 times


You didn't provide very much information, but I will try to help you. Here are some possibilities.

1. The pressure switch may not be closing, or is stuck closed all the time.

2. If this furnace has a hot surface ignitor, it may be faulty or not getting voltage.

3. If this furnace has spark ignition, the module could be faulty or the ignitor may not be positioned correctly.

4. The gas valve may be faulty, turned off, or may not have gas pressure to the valve.

There may be other issues, but I tried to cover the most likely causes. I hope this helps!

Having problem with lennox furnace Model ML193DF090P48C-02.Furnace has been working but now and getting worse furnace will kick on 20 seconds or so but nothing.Igniter does not come on.When it finally


Usually when your flame sensor gets dirty, the igniter and burner come on for approx.15 seconds, then shuts down. After 3 tries it will lock the furnace out. You have to shut the power off to the furnace then turn it back on to reset it. You need to turn all the power off to the furnace and remove the flame sensor, clean it with some very fine steel wool and put it back in. Be careful not to handle the Sensor (metal) part with your fingers. Turn the power on and set your thermostat so that it will call for Heat. That should fix, it if not you may need a new flame sensor.

Igniter isnt lighting


IF YOU LOST POWER WHEN FURNACE WAS RUNNING IT TRIPPED ROLLOUT SWITCHES AND POSSIBLY THE HIGH LIMIT . IN CENTER OF ROLLOUT SWITCHES IS A LITTLE RED BUTTON THAT YOU RESET . YOU CAN ALSO TRY FINDING HIGH LIMIT WITH POWER SHUT OFF TO FURNACE PULL BOTH WIRES OFF HIGH LIMIT AND USE PAPER CLIP TO JUMP BETWEEN THE TWO WIRES MAKE SURE YOU DONT SHORT OUT AGAINST ANY METAL WHEN YOU TURN BACK ON IF IT WORKS YOU NEED A NEW HIGH LIMIT SWITCH.

Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad ignitor what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor.If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.
