1. GMS91155DXA2. There are 2 sensors just below the flames. I have to reset those to get the furnace to operate.Works fine until I put the cover back on it. Then it may or may not keep running but one of the sensors trips and it either stops running or just blows cold air (no flame).

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.

If you have to repeatedly reset the rollout sensors then your heat exchanger needs to be cleaned by a pro.
