Are you experiencing problems with your gas furnace right now? Did it abruptly stop now working when you turned it on, and your family circuit breaker turned on? You may be having ignitor issues.
Newer gas furnace models actually come equipped with electric ignitors that light gas heating systems and turn your fuel promptly into heat, becoming your home’s heat source.
Your ignitor’s main role is to create tiny sparks to light the burner, which opens up the gas valve to commence a combustion process that generates your home’s heat. A malfunctioned ignitor makes it taxing for your family gas furnace to turn on. To be sure that your issues arise from a bad ignitor, you will often need to test it by following a few simple steps. First, inspect your gas furnace for any damages and test the circuit. Ensure the Heating and Air Conditioning system is only set at room temperature. After that, use the thermostat to turn it off. Locate your large gas furnace’s circuit breaker in the main breaker box of your new home or on the furnace, and switch it off. Turning off the household circuit breaker helps cool off your gas furnace to room temperature. After your questionable gas furnace cools down to room temperature, unscrew and take out the repair panel. To identify the ignitor, look for a component with far more than one wire connected to its back and a flat metal tip. Look out for any damages to the system that would cause the ignitor to fail and need a updatement. Or call somehow who can.
