I know we don’t get into explaining to our clients what is wrong with the furnace when it does not work, but I’m curious as to what might cause this.
I completed an inspection a week ago and the gas was off to the home. Forward to this week and I make a second trip to check those components that need gas to operate. When I get to the furnace and put it on heat mode, around 85 degrees, the fan kicks on and I can hear the clicking sound it makes when trying to light. It does this five or six times and the furnace just stops.
The gas valves were all on and the furnace was only six years old. My thinking is something may be wrong with the electronic ignition. In the report I will note the furnace did not respond under it’s normal controlls etc…check the manufacturers warranty etc…
Just curious as to what might cause this in a relatively new furnace?
