Rheem Criterion Ignitor Issue?

\015 The ignitor on my Rheem Crerion furnace stopped heating up. I thought the ignitor went bad so I replaced it, but the new ignitor is not heating up as well. I'm not getting any error lights on the furnace. The furnace turns on, the ignitor doesn't warm up and it turns off again. Any ideas? Thanks!\015

Rheem condensing unit fan motor failure?................3rd motor was replaced by contractor on 3 year old unit. Unit starts vibrating very badly and will also start vibrating when blocking airflow. All mounting screws are tight. Is there an issue going on with these GE motors? What is the issue here? Contractors have not seen this type of issue before. R-410A, Model: RANL-030-JAZ

We have a Rheem air conditioner that is 9 years old Model number RAKA 037-JAZ and have been having some issue with it. Last summer the condenser wasn't coming on so we have a friend who is a HVAC guy and he came over and cleaned it all out and then it worked great. At the beginning of this summer we started having the same issue, so we cleaned it out and it worked for a couple of weeks and then started to have problems again. One day, it ran all day and the temp stayed high when we went to look

I replaced my Rheem Ruud 62-24084-82 Ignition Module Control Board in my Rheem gas furnace last year. Has worked great until last night. Now blower purge motor starts but does not go into ignitor cycle. On board power light is ON(AN1)but green light next to it (AN2) is intermittently going on and off. I am trying to determine cause of malfunction.


When the purge motor turns on, the controller is waiting for proof that it is running before ignition. On your model I think it a differential pressure switch and it should be in front of the furnace. Should be able to see a pressure or vacuum line r ... Ruud Air Conditioners

I have a Sta Rite Max E Therm pool heater and when I start the unit, the fan kicks on but the heater never does. After 45 seconds or so, I get a " Service Heater" light. The circuit board had leds for limit switch, pressure switch, air sensors, etc, but none are lit. The ignition contol module has a blinking red led which the manual says is a "ignition lockout" issue. What is an ignition lockout? Do I need to replace the HSI Ignitor? Or could it be something other than ignitor? Thanks


Hi,How many times that light is blinking?Is it 3 times sequence?Let me know,so that we could proceed.Thanks!! ... Air Conditioners
