Hi my name is Robert...

Possibly..... When you turn the thermostat ON and try to run the furnace will the fan come on for the furnace? and do you hear it trying to spark? IF needed go outside and listen......


Expert:  Robert replied 28 days ago.

IF the furnace is sparking it could be a LP issue. Go to the main tank and shut the main valve, slowly open it back up, sometimes if that valve is opened to fast the regulator can lock up and you might not get the proper pressure, open the valve slowly. I know some Fleetwood's do not have a valve but a switch, if that is the case cycle the switch and then light the stove burners and try to start the furnace several times, the lines may have air in them. IF it is NOT sparking then most likely it is NOT a LP issue. Normally you can hear a single click from the gas valve when it opens up and then you would hear it trying to ignite. Let me know if you need more help, follow ups are included.....
