Diagnosing and Troubleshooting Furnace Problems

There are some simple furnace problems that consumers can diagnose and troubleshoot themselves. If the pilot light is out on an older furnace, relighting is easy. The problem can also be due to a clogged pilot orifice or low setting for pilot flame. The orifice can be cleaned out with a wire, and the pilot flame can be adjusted with the right settings. Just use the manufacturer's manual and follow the instructions. However, if the system is newer, most likely it has an electric ignition control. Electric ignition controls are configured with either hot surface ignition systems or intermittent pilot ignition systems. These types of systems require more complex troubleshooting.

Because these systems run through electronics, most often a furnace repair requires replacement parts instead of just an adjustment. If the furnace burner will not ignite with a hot surface ignition system, the furnace will go into shutdown mode. You can try resetting with the button on the controller located on the side of the furnace. If this doesn't work, you can troubleshoot further by turning off the power and gas to the furnace. Take off the hot surface igniter and look for damage or cracks. If there is any damage, the igniter will probably have to be replaced.

If there is no spark and the furnace does not work with an intermittent pilot ignition system, the cause could be a result of the following problems:

-loose connections to and from the control module
-thermostat not calling working properly
-lack power to the furnace
-damaged spark electrode
-faulty control module
-faulty pilot burner

Whatever the problem, our NATE-certified technicians have the industry knowledge and latest diagnostic tools to quickly identify the source. Each component of the furnace will be tested for an accurate diagnosis. All of our repair work comes with a 100 percent guarantee. If the repair isn't cost-effective and your furnace is old, our technicians may recommend in investing in a more energy efficient system.
