rheem 90 plus gas furnace. Not turning on. Checked the 3 troubleshooting lights. Both green led lights on solid. Orange led light not on. Tried shutting furnace off and on. No change.
I'm not sure if it is not 90 plus... I've used this service once before for the furnace if you can locate it that way, or tell me where to look.
I am ready to start and it was manufactured in 1992 as best I can tell. Labels on panels have 92 prefixes... No obvious model number though
I have an analog volt meter from radio shack. New battery in it but I don't know how to read it. Switched it to RX 1K ohm setting and put connectors into the connection for the ignitor. Needle went from 0 (left) to far right... which I assumed means the connection is not broken on the ignitor.
If you can instruct me with that info I can check voltage on the terminals.
Yes. Opposite side in red, AC with a V after it.
3 settings: 1000, 150 and 15. Which one do I use and do I simply insert the prongs into an outlet?
ok, I did it and the needle went to approx. 800 out of 1000 on scale. Also there is a dial on the side of the device. I have that about in the middle.
Radio Shack volt meter. Only number on it says 05A06. Bought it some years ago, never used it. Dial on side says ohms adjust. Pretty cheap as I recall.
Yes I had it set to the 150. Put the prongs in a wall outlet and needle went to 800.
sorry for the delay. had to re-attach the ignitor. Checked both with gas on and off. both read about 200 on the acv meter of the scale. I also noticed that now the "ok" led was flashing twice in succession when I turned the system back on.
Nothing running at all. Hear slight buzz from panel. Read manual about the "ok" led chart about blinking twice. It says pressure switch stuck open.
Do you mean the blower motor in the upper compartment? It has an electric motor in front that seems abnormally hot. If so, I think I can remove the screws holding it in place to check it.
removed motor. wheel fan stiff to move but does. removing back casing to see if i can manipulate it more. Or would that be a waste of time?
I will check. still removing back casing
I replaced the blower motor, which is working, but still orange led light and no glow from ignitor...
A little confused, sorry. Are you still working with me on my furnace?
Too many windows open. It looked like it was ended so I closed it... If we could continue on this one please.
Exhaust disconnected at furnace exterior. Should I have the gas on when I attempt this?
I removed the vent pipe at the unit. Turned the system on both with the gas on and off. Good airflow leaving unit. No orange led light present. Same green code. No glow from ignitor...
You still with me billy?
billy I need to know if you are still assisting me or not...
