Re: Furnace issue , maybe someone has had this issue before ?


I have a small video on my phone but it won't let me up load it .

I had Atco come by and look last night. He metered it as you suggested and he figures it's the gas valve that's shot. I'm going to get a new one ( as long as they sell it to me ) and instal . Hopefully that will do the trick

Good news on the diagnostic!
except.... finicky furnaces like the flame master was one of the initial reasons suppliers out here stopped selling gas valves to anyone who didn't have a gas license.
You might get lucky but gas fitters with 40+ years of experience, are a lot more cautious (with good reason) when setting up a replacement gas valve on this particular furnace than almost any others.

Use a gas fitter for this one (just not the tech who couldn't tell you why it kept going out.)

Thanks for all your input and help. It's installed and I've clocked my gas rate ( 95,000 BTU ) and the house is warming up !

Thanks again, I'm sure I'll stick around this site because I've always got projects on the go :-)
