Customer Question

I have an American standard freedom vs 90. (Trane). I fire it up and it keeps recycling without lighting up the flame. It flashes two red when first starting up and then a steady green. I tried shutting off power to clear circuit board. I replaced the batteries in the thermostat. Why won't the flame fire up?

Ok have you tried to clean out the orifices on the burner, they may be plugged up causing the unit not to light. That often happens

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do I need to take off the cover for the burners?
Expert:  HVAC Guru replied 1 year ago.

Yes take the cover off to get at them. Also you can check if the valve is getting 24 volts when the ignitor is glowing. If so then either you have a gas supply issue, clogged orifices or bad valve.
