  1. Need advice on replacing igniter in gas dryer

    Appliances
    Hi; I have a pretty old (10+ yrs) Kenmore gas dryer that stopped heating. I suspect the igniter, but haven't accessed the burner area yet, and will do so before I order any part(s). So I'm looking at the igniter at three stores: Sears Parts Direct: $95 RepairClinic.com: $98 Google Express...
  2. Ignitor stays on during heat . Trane XR 80. Is this normal ?

    HVAC
    I have trane XR80 - TUD - model. Today, igniter was gone so I replaced it with new one and noticed, it stays glowing during complete heat operation. When heat is OFF, igniter goes off. Not sure if this is normal behavior or something is wrong here.

  4. Goodman GMS furnace

    HVAC
    Hi, I have a Goodman GMS 90703 BXAA furnace in my house. Last week I turned the thermostat on heat for the first time this year and it worked fine for 2 days. Then suddenly the heater shut off, the air blower stayed on and the error code was 6 blinks (open rollout). I did some basic...
  5. Frigidaire Gallery Series Range knob doesn't spark burners...

    Appliances
    I'm new here, so I'm not really sure what the correct terminology is, so I'll try to describe what happens... Our range has 5 burners. When you turn the knobs to "Lite" all 5 will "spark" (or at least they're supposed to) Recently, one of the knobs stopped telling the burners to spark. It's...
  6. Carrier furnace with spark but no pilot

    HVAC
    I have a 1988 Carrier furnace model# 394GAZ0361OC. It was having problems on startup where the gas valve opened up and igniter started clicking but it was hit or miss on if it would light the pilot. I took the spark electrode out and cleaned it and along with the gas orifice. This did solve the...
  7. Nordyne CMF 80 Won't Stay Lit

    HVAC
    Came home from work Thursday night to a cold house. After trouble shooting and watching YouTube videos I figured out that it might be the ignitor. I took the part out and sure enough the ceramic coil was cracked. I found a compatible part at Grainger, listed the model of coil on the back of the...
  8. Carrier 58MCA long igniter warm-up time

    HVAC
    My Carrier 58 MCA has an abnormally long igniter warm-up time. Here's what happens: The thermostat calls for heat - the furnace starts working, churning, sometimes for 30 minutes without a call for gas...then it calls for gas, it lights, hot air blows for 2-3 minutes then shuts off. The...
  9. Comfortmaker RPJ2 igniter and transformer output

    HVAC
    I have a Comfortmaker RPJ2 that went out today. The blower will start up but the igniter (Q3400A 1040) would not heat up. I replaced the igniter/sensor and it ignited once then would not work again. I checked the voltage of the leads of the igniter from the gas valve and there is power during...

    Good morning, Long time reader, first time poster here. First want to thank you for all of the great advise we've found here in the past! Currently we are having a bit of a conundrum with a Heil N8MPN propane furnace. When the heat is turned on the inducer motor starts and after a 15 second...
  11. Payne 376C Stopped working

    HVAC
    I have a Payne 376c Furnace that seems to have just stopped working. The inducer motor turns on and eventually the blower motor turns on but the HSI never heats up so of course the burners never light. Is there anything that this specifically indicates?? BTW, the furnace uses a 310305-201...

    I have a Trane XL80 model # TUD140R960A. The furnace was blowing cold air. There were 2 flashing lights, system lockout, on the diagnostic indicator. I shut off the thermostat and the furnace. I replaced the fuse. I disconnected the igniter and rubbed with sand paper. I removed and cleaned the...
  13. Ruud Furnace blower /igniter

    HVAC
    I live in a new townhome with a Ruud furnace that is less than 2 years old. Over the last few weeks the system would start and stop randomly, so I would flip the power switch to get it to reset. Now it does nothing. There is a low hum that comes from the unit but the blower does not turn on...

    HVAC
    My ignitor went out on my Goodman (about 10 years old). I decided to call someone instead of trying to do it myself - and they quoted $450! I'm willing to support my local contractor community, have it waranteed, etc., but please! For a $33 part and a few mins of work?? So I decided I'd order it...
