Standing pilot furnace
walters16 Member Posts: 1
The pilot is lit and strong thermocouple is a nice even red but the gas isnt kicking on for the burner to light. Any ideas?
HVACNUT Member Posts: 4,954Plenty of ideas.
Thermostat, relay, spill switch, rollout switch, gas valve, broken wire or poor connection, poor inlet gas pressure. To name a few.
If you have an electrical meter, post some pics of the furnace and wiring diagram, we might be able to help. If it's a pressure problem, a manometer will be needed.
If you dont have a meter and are not handy you'll need to call a pro.
