I guys need some help. Its a 1999 Model. What brand the heater is,I don,t know(Atwood I think). How many times is normal for the Igniter to click before the Furnace lights? Sometimes mine will click 10 to 12 times before it lights then to next day it will take 4 to 5 times then the next day it will take 20 times to light. This is 3 Days is a row
Its down to 27 here and I want to make sure all is well. I will be taking it out next week.


Thanks For Your Help

Tcloud, it's likely that your furnace is a Suburban. You can search these forums and find a lot of helpful tips and troubleshooting. Offhand, I'd say your ignitor and/or main burner is dirty and that's causing erratic performance. It can be easily cleaned, but you you gotta pull the furnace out to get access to it. If you decide to clean the ignitor, be gentle with a scotchbrite pad, then make sure you set the airgap to specs (1/16" I believe).

Hey Thanks Troth. Do you know how to get to it? I think its behind a panel on the rear drivers side with a bunch of screws.

Thanks Tcloud

Remove all the screws you can see. Generally the tough part is a slow, steady "prying" with a 1" (or wider) putty knife, trying to loosen the agressive caulking between the sheet metal. Have your propane tank valve off and disconnect the LP line at the fitting going into the furnace regulator. Electrical plugs will simply disconnect. Once the outside cover is removed, look carefully around the base flange of sheet metal, especially in the corners, for small 1/4" hex head screws that hold the furnace into the sheet metal housing. You gotta remove those mounting screws so the furnace can be slid out. The rest of the disassembly is pretty straightforward. Suggest putting an old white bedsheet on your workbench to keep track of all the little screws and stuff.

is your thermostat electric or a manual type...

I had a simliar problem once with a cheap manual thermostat. just thought you might want to check that before you go taken apart your furnace.
