armstrong


I have a armstrong SX 90 ultra furnace model guk075d10. THE INDUCER MOTOR KICKS IN THEN THE PILOT LITE COMES ON AND THATS IT .If you reset the circuit breaker (turn it off then back on) the furnace will go through a complete heating cycle . this will last for a day or two then the inducer motor and pilot lite will work until you reset the breaker

Turning off the breaker resets the control board in your furnace. Do you get a blinking light or lights associated with that board? You should be getting a failure code in a blinking light that should steer you in the right direction, but also if you are at least getting a pilot light without lighting the main burners try cleaning the flame sensing wire or rod that lays in the pilot flame and loosen and tighten the sheet metal screws that fasten the board and the pilot flame assembly and any wires to the furnace sheetmetal. Something is dirty and can usually be cleaned up without calling the repairman.

start out cleaning the flame sensor that looks like this . If that doesn't work then you need to measure voltage between m/p and m on gas valve while the pilot is lit.
