rheem furnace model RGLG-O7NAMGR - Burner does not stay lit

4 posts in this topic

I have a rheem furnace model number RGLG-07NAMGR - that starts as the flow chart shows that it should but the burner starts as it should but then only stays on for about 1min. I repeats that senerio 3 times and then nothing. The flame sensors seem to be some type of optical devices that I cleaned with a soft cloth. but the problem stilll persists. The fcb led status lights show green.  I'm wondering if i should replace the flame sensors or what other trouble shooting should or might be done

 

thanks

Most sensors are metal rods which hang out in the flames. They change in resistance telling the control the flame is lit. Sanding down the sensor helps. Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I86joWL66aE

Possibly an air flow problem.  The Evaporator coils may be dirty or clogged filter. Sounds like the high limit thermostat is tripping because too much heat in the exchanger.  

 

Possibly a draft induction problem. Clogged vent pipe or bad induction or pressure switch or tubing to pressure switch.

Yeah if the sensor was good I would be looking for an open rollout/limit switch.
