Heater Pilot Lights and Cycles (Clicks)


I have an intermitent problem with my Payne 376BAW024055 furnace. The combustion blower works, the pilot ignites, and the furnace makes a clicking sound. When I tap on the diaphram switch the main burner lights and the furnace will work for a few days or a week.

Does this sound like a marginal pressure switch (PN HH84AA007) that is worked for 23 years?

Where is the best place to get parts on line?

I too have a similar issue.
Carrier 58SSB080-BC Series 120 Gas Furnace

Last year, I ordered and installed a draft inducer kit, worked out fine....

This year, new intermittent issue, when thermostat calls for heat, furnace will make clicking sound (like the relays are clattering), and the circuit board to the right of the inducer motor has wires plugged onto the right side (wire harness), that when wiggled, will stop the clattering, the inducer motor will spin up and furnace will start. (I replaced the igniter coil, was not that)

I placed a wedge/shim behind the plug, and it has worked for 2 weeks.

Now again, intermittent clattering, inducer fan fails to start, so I "wiggle" that plug/harness where I place the wedge, and it starts.

I'd assume I need a new board & or harness?

If so, price & availability?

HH84AA007-Hamilton Test Systems 742-0004-490 is the info on the circuit board.

Should I also consider replacing that diaphragm on the top of that board also?

It's a Tridelta FS6001-248, p/n HK08WC070

Appreciate any assistance, as I know this unit is quite old, however I got married last year in February and I "inherited" this system, which I'd say may need to be replace if things of this nature are to continue.

Pull out the plug and make sure all the terminals are fully pushed into place. You can clean them with contact cleaner. Also pull the board and look for small cracks in the ribbons with a magnifying glass.

UPDATE:

The unit finally stopped working again and I removed the board and inspected it. Nothing visable that I could see (no burning, no delaminating, etc) and put it back together and it is working well. I guess the junctions to the two connectors corrode a little and build up a high resistance...

Thanks guys!
