Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you. I am looking over your question now and will respond shortly.

Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

first....have you held the reset for a full 30 seconds yet?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

Thank you...

the next - hold the button for 60 seconds until the lights flash from yellow to red constantly,do not release until both lights go out, which is another 20 seconds.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I i did it
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

does that mean you tried that and it did not work?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It turns on but is off again
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Red light is on again
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

Ok,

do we get flame but it shuts off...or we never get flame?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It gets flame on pilot i think
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
But not inside the heater system
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

can you verify that there is definitely flame?

Does the vent pipe get warm/hot before it shuts off?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It seems like it goes on for like 2 seconds and red light comes on
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Do i shut it off the switch
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
try again
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

ok this will get pretty involved and I do not know how far you want to go...

It could be:

No fuel to gun (plugged oil filter)

Out of oil

Bad transformer

electrodes off

cad cell

or the control itself

Try again and if it does not catch in 3 times shut down and call for service.

Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
From oil to gas
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

I understand now...gas or propane?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
What do you mean about that
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

is the burner set up for natural gas or propane gas?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Natural gas
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

Ok, this came 2 ways...a peeper eye or a flame sense rod.

Either one only runs 3 seconds if the flame is not there.

Can you tell if there is any sparking for ignition and do you happen to have a inspection port?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No is there something that you want me to do
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Or do you want me to turn it on again
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

yes turn back on and see if the gas valve ever clicks

Customer: replied 1 month ago.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
All valves are open
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Can you tel me how
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Thermostat in kind old does it matter
Customer: replied 1 month ago.

Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.

thermostat will not matter..

Basically you unhook the gas pipe..undo the bolts that hold the front flange to the furnace and remove the entire gun

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok I'm going to unhook the gas pipe
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 month ago.
