Customer Question
I'm trying to relight...

I'm trying to relight a trance xl80 furnace. I have removed the covers and turned off the gas.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

It is dirty but not filthy

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If possible. Could a dirty filter put it out?

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Could you walk me through the lighting process please?

You do not light this unit it is an automatic ignition. There should be a red light that is flashing on the board in the unit that can tell you the error on the unit if it is not working. Check the flash pattern of that light and let me know what it is.
