Gas Furnace with electronic ignition not lighting and NOT CLICKING just churning

Gas Furnace, Make is Goodman, Gas line is on, boiler is on and works next to it, It doesnt have an individual breaker but it is plugged in, and the blower fan works, i do not have ac, and the filter is 4 months old. Every vent works just fine and produces air with fan blower on. There is NO AC unit just heat, it does not click it just sounds like a motor slowly not getting anywhere. just churning and churning, and then nothing. It might be the thermostat i have 5 wires, White , Yellow, Green,Blue and Red, and a honeywell thermostat. the batteries are brand new, and wiring red and white together produces the same affect. its not clicking at all, and just stops when it doesnt finish.

Wire nut or tape the black off. The red is normally 24volt supply power to the t-stat. Blue may or may not be the common. Have a voltmeter?

Make sure you do not have a jumper between the red and the white. Also make sure the wire is not hanging out from behind the screws. If the heat stayes on no matter what you do. The red wire has to be touching the white somewhere.
The red is your 24v supply to the thermostat
The white is what sends the 24v to the heat side of unit.
Just a thought. If the thermostat has a O/B pin or switch on the back. Make sure it's on O. It should only be ob B if it's a Trane, American Standard or Payne.

SOURCE: Trying to wire RUUD gas furnace. connection block

No problem have done this many times. R from the t-stat goes to R on the indoor unit. G goes to G Y goes to Y and C goes to C if you have a C or the t-stat the you are using. If there is no C there dont worry about it. It only need to be hookup if the t-stat uses power from the unit to run. Many t-stats today use battery power and do not need the C wire hooked up. Now R and C from the outdoor unit. R goes to the Y on the indoor unit and C goes to C on the indoor unit. That means that you may have two wires under the Y terminal and sometimes under the C terminal on the indoor unit. If on the outdoor unit there is no designation of R and C dont worry, just hook one wire to each of the two wires there for your low voltage connection. It does not matter which one goes to which unless they are marked then it may matter.
This should get you up and running and see it really isn't that hard!! :-)

SOURCE: Hi Proper way on wiring furnace.

I can give you a start, For heat only, R terminal on furnace to Red wire to R or RH terminal on thermostat. W terminal to White wire to W terminal on thermostat. G terminal to Green wire to G terminal on thermostat. This will get you heat but not air conditioning.

Colman gas furnace wont light


Is it natural gas or propane? If propane, make sure you are not out of gas. Does it have electronic ignition or a manual pilot? if pilot, make sure the pilot flame is still lit and the control knob is turned to the "On" position. If it has electronic ignition, shut off the power to the furnace and then turn it back on and see if resets and lights.

Check if 24 volts is being sent from the board to the gas valve, if not the board is nad and will need to be replaced, if there is 24 volts at the gas vlave terminals then the gas valve must be replaced.

Heater doesn't come on?


The electronic ignition system in a gas furnace is a modern development that allows more reliable performance than standing pilot furnaces, provides energy savings and contributes to better furnace efficiency (AFUE). With a standing pilot, found most commonly on older low efficiency furnaces (55% to 65% AFUE is not uncommon), a small gas flame is always burning and is known in the lexicon of American home repair as a "pilot light". The problem with this type of "analog" ignition is that it wastes energy by constantly burning gas and can sometimes be unreliable. These issues have led to the development of electronic ignition systems for mid to high efficiency furnaces that exceed the U.S. government's established minimum AFUE rating of 78%. The electronic ignition occurs typically in one of two ways:
  • Intermittent Pilot, or
  • Hot Surface Ignition The intermittent pilot system uses an electronically controlled high voltage electrical spark to ignite the gas pilot and then subsequently the main burners, when the thermostat calls for heat.
    The hot surface ignition system uses an electronically controlled resistance heating element not unlike a light bulb filament (and shown in the photo above), to ignite the gas burner.
    It is important to understand some of the other components of a modern furnace that you will encounter depending on the type of high efficiency furnace you have. Why? Because they can also come into play in repairing an electronic ignition furnace when it won't run properly. Let's take a quick review of the types of furnace designs and components found in high efficiency furnaces using electronic ignition.

    How to manually relight a Goodman® GMS9/GCS9 Single-Stage, Multi-Speed Gas Furnaces


    You should NEVER attempt to relight manually this furnace. Serious burns could be the result. This furnace has an electronic ignition and should light by itself. If it does not light you may have a bad ignitor. These are usually around 30-50 US dollars.
