This is Sashi. My furnace is blowing out cold air. Seems igniter is not working. My unit is TempStar DC90

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Yes, the unit is blowing cold air now. I checked the thermostat and it is set to heat, fan is on auto. The lower panel where I see the control board looks clean. The upper panel where I see the gas valve and the burner looks clean as well but I don't see any flames coming into the burner.

Contractor's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to HVAC Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Sure
