The furnace runs but won't ignite
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

ok, how old is the furnace? What is the model number of the furnace? You should be able to find the model number in the burner compartment on a sticker...

HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago
