hello,

At any time do you get 24v on the wire to gas valve from roll out switch?

Are you around still?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

sorry had to clean sat dish off (snow)

You will put one meter lead to blue wire on valve and other to ground.

See if valve gets 3 seconds of 24v after ignitor glows aprox 20 seconds

Volt meter 0.11 V
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I got 0.1 Volts
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
0.11 not 0.1
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

thank you....this means you have a bad circuit board. It sends al signals except the final 24v to the valve. This is a circuit board defect.

No fix except to replace the circuit board

Can i check voltage to the gas valve? Im suspecting valve / solenoid ? Solenoid has 0.599 Ohm only - i belive it has to by arroung 1500 ?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

that is what we were checking at the valve after the ignitor glow.

You have 2 choices:

24v goes to valve for 3 seconds during ignitor glow but no gas = bad gas valve.

NO 24v to gas valve during ignitor glow = bad board.

It is either board or valve.

The 24v test tells us which.

What if i connect meter to Blue & roll out switch wire (purple) instead Blue & ground, then run the test again?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

you should be testing the wire that goes to valve from roll out...not the wire that goes back to board

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Sorry i don't understand "back to board" ??
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

gas valve has 2 wires..one comes from roll out....the other wire runs back to circuit board...the wire back to board is common and will not read voltage

You mentioned one meter prong to ground other is to blue wire they all connected to the board aren't they?

This is a single not two stage furnace
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
only two wires to GAS VALVE
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

I know....that is why I said test the wire from roll out to gas valve....the other wire (thats 2 all together) goes back to board. The GMPN is a basic single stage gas valve.

You should be able to tell if valve gets 24v no different that how a light bulb gets 120v

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
then why i have to meter The Blue wire to Ground - Why not Blue & Roolout wire to test for 24v
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

my schematic shows blue as the 24 in from rollout.

But that is also why I say wire from roll out.

You can also remove both wires and hook one wire to one meter lead and the other wire to remaining meter lead.

Billy - Yes its crazy schematics -- All my roll out switches have people wires! ill try it in 10 min now we getting somewhere .. Looking forward for 24 volt readings get back to you in 10 min
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

this will boil down to the 24v present or not...24v present = bad valve

no 24v = bad board

I have 120 V coming in to furnace
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

yes...I was testing meter...if it reads 120v for a supply voltage...then it should read a full 24-28v for gas valve.

Should i disconnect the Thermostat and JUMP >>> Red &White to call for heat?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

if you are testing while ignitor glows...then r to w is not needed. R to W is is the furnace doesnt start at all...you have exhaust fan, glow etc...so thermostat works.

If you test the gas valve the entire time the ignitor glows until it goes out...And...

no 24v reading happens = board

24v happens is bad valve

One more thing .... Let’s say one of the rollout switches out of four are defective? Can it be a defective circuit to run the 24 V test? Reason being for my question is that prior my furnace problem I had to reset one of my rollout switch time to time to run heat. (I never had Flame Rollout) after several days of manually rollout switch resetting my furnace gave up. Then I cleaned Primary & Secondary exchangers 100%. So my question again … What is if one of the rollout switches are defective? Can it be a defective circuit to run the 24 V test to gas valve? Also gas valve solenoid reading is only 599 ohm
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

you are getting a flame fail code..not a roll out or limit code.

BUT....all you would do is work backward following that wire....looking for 24v.

No different than looking for power to an outlet. If not at one point back track to next...or start where you know you have 24v...like the first roll out or limit. The schematic on the blower door shows the path

Looks like Billy has opened question up for other experts.First of all take a look at this diagram and tell me if wires and colors match what you have .

Hi Airheatman - This is Steve - The wires and colors do match. Few weeks ago after cleaning first an secondary heat exchangers i had fast led blinking. Then i checked out the diagram and switched one wire according to the diagram. I have Solid Red LED light at start. I have 27 V at gas valve. Running 3 times - No Flame !!! - Then LED blinking (approx every second) for ever until i shoot it off.

Running 3 times - No Flame !!! - Then LED blinking (approx every second) for ever until i shoot it off.
NOW What if? … Can I bypass (ONLY temporarily) one rollout switch by disconnecting wires then connect them together to check if rollout switch malfunctioning? I’m suspecting upper middle because all my problems started with that. I had to reset it many – many times manually for few days to have heat. Then furnace stopped working. At that point I CLEANED & checked out Heat exchangers. The look great! No rust or cracks. Also I never experienced any gas/flame rollout before. So what if the rollout switch defective? Can I test the furnace by bypass the rollout switch? I assume if rollout is defective then Gas Valve will not open even if I got 27V.

HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

Good evening Steve. If you are getting 27v at gas valve, either the gas valve is defective or you have a gas pressure issue.To determine which, attach a manometer or gas pressure gauge that reads inches of water column to inlet and out sides of valve.

If you had an open limit the led would blink 4 times pause , 4 times pause until limit is closed.

If limit was open we would not get igniter.If rollout switches were open we would not get the 27v to valve.

Hi - I have gas oven and no problem. I don't have manometer. I have solid LED. Igniter is glowing/working.
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

OK with ignitor glowing do we get the 24 to 28 v to gas valve?

Forgot to tell you i bypassed Termostat by connectin R & V wires
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

OK if all other gas appliances are working, most likely a bad gas valve.If we are getting 27v to valve there are no limits,pressure switch or rollouts that are not doing what they should.If any of these were an issue, the board would not send 27v to valve. The solenoid sounds like it is clicking but gas valve not opening.Replace valve and this should solve your problem

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

At this point of furnace sequence valve should be open.To question any other component such as a limit or a pressure switch would be like a car engine not starting and wondering if low tire could be the issue.
