Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Sounds like either the orifice or burners need to be cleaned or you gas valve needs to be replaced. Either a clogged/dirty burner or orifice would block the flow of gas to the burners. So would a gas valve that isn't letting enough gas pressure through.

I agree that some thing is clogged but I can't see how to clean the orifice
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 year ago

You have to remove the burners to get to the orifice so you might as well clean the burner too. The procedure is in the manual and is recommended annually

I can't find how to remove the burner. there is only 2 nuts on the base of the burner but it still will not come out of the unit.
there is not much room underneath to get a hand it to work on the unit.
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 year ago

Here's the manual. The procedure is on page 22

I don't mind paying for your service but it did not help me out at all. the burner does not come out as it states it would.
I am not questioning your expertise but you did not help me at all here. I would like the $16.00 credited back to my account.
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 year ago

ok

I did slide it to the left and it would not come out. I tried sliding it to the right thinking maybe that it might come out but it does not slide either way
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 year ago

I told customer service you want a refund. I can't be there to show you how to get it out. All I can do is point you in the right direction.

I under stand where you are coming from but there must be a secret here some where as to how to remove it if it doesn't slide out. I appreciate your trying to help me out. thanks
