Do you smell gas when gas valve opens. Russ

I do, and I hear it flow too
Expert:  gotoman for ac replied 11 months ago.

The hot surface ignitor glow almost white hot correct. Russ

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No just red/Orange. Is it supposed to glow white?
Expert:  gotoman for ac replied 11 months ago.

Then ignitor should be position at the edge of burner. Middler should glow white hot. Russ

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Its position is correct as you explained. Since its not glowing white hot, do I need to replace the igniter? Or does it need to be cleaned? I was just able to get the furnace to light, (after multiple times of resetting furnace to get it to cycle through) so it appears, the problem getting to light would point to an igniter problem.
Expert:  gotoman for ac replied 11 months ago.

Ignitor can not be gleaned it is very brittle. Just replace it. Some thing you can do yourself very easily. Do you need source for ignitor. Russ
