Armstrong Air Ultra V Tech 80


I am getting 6-1 flashes telling me that I am getting locked out due to ignition failure.

Any assistance out there?

have you run it through a heating sequence while watching to see what is or is not happening? Going to need more information fromm you than just the code. Could be many different things for that code. Does the ignitor glow? Do the burners come on and then go out after a few seconds?

I cut the power to the furnace at the box. Turned the t-stat to 73. The indicator light is showing bright-dim as it should, all systems are firing at the moment. T-stat hit 74 and system shut down, blower still blowing and indicator light still bright-dim.

when you turned the power off, you reset the system. it may not act up for a while now....blower still blowing due to heat off delay built into blower controller.

I have this problem and the igniter glows then the flame comes on for a second igniter goes out and it shuts off. It cycles thru this 3 or 4 times then totally shuts down. Getting the same 6 + 1 codes after that. Until then regular heartbeat. Any ideas? At this point I could use any advice wife and kids are starting to think I am a dumba$$!
