Trane furnace
« on: March 06, 2011, 04:38:32 PM »
have a trane furnace, when i turn on, ignitor light comes on, gas clicks, blowers come on...will reach thermostat setting and then go off...next cycle, ignitor lighs come on, gas clicks and then no blower...will try 3 times then just fan.  i took bottom panel off to see control board and there is one red light at the bottom that stays on.  basically, my heat doesnt work.  any ideas or help you could offer that I can do myself would be great...also, im a girl so nothing to technical please!!

Gee Stacy you should look out fer the topic police. Ok the system works one time the takes a dump on the second go round. First I would do the basics which is clean the sensor. These new fangled furnaces need confirmation of ignition or they will shut down and keepa tryin ta get that confirmation so clean up the sensor first with dry brillo pad and see if that puppy comes ta life. Go ahead and shut down power for an hour or more so the board can reset.
Find the flame sensor and clean that sucker. Give it the Alabama Gloss and the Mississippi Shine. Re-install that and pray. Maybe you won't need to replace that board. Take some pictures Let us see what ya got. I ain't got time to find stuff on the internet about furnaces. Tried it with limited success. Better at looking at what you have. Post some photos of your furnace.
