It's the limit switch that is located on the fire box. There are two wires that go to a disk about the size of a penny and in between the two wires is a very small button. This button resets the limit. If this switch is tripped, the flame will immediately go out to protect you from carbon monoxide poisoning and possible fire. If it will not reset, then take the two wires off and use another piece of wire to jump the switch. If it lights, then you know that the limit is bad. If not, then there are a few more to find. There could be 2 to 3 of these on the fire box and there is usually one near the inducer or on the inducer.

I am looking to buy a house in forclosure. It has a Tappan gas furnace about 9 years old and there is no manual.

I have a ruud furnace/airconditioner Model:UGPN-07EAMER, Serial: FU5D302F390401344. When the thermostat calls for heat, a little motor (within the furnace itself) or something kicks on, the burners ignite a few seconds later, then the blower starts. It's at this time the flame goes out and the blower is just sending cold air throughout the house. There are two green lights (power and ok) lit normally and the orange(ish) blinking "flame" light on the main board. When the flame goes out, the

My bosch 21E (infinity style) hot water system has an intermittant fault where the flame does not appear to be able to stay on (or properly light). Once water is started to the unit I can hear the ignitor go on and the fan start (and I think I can gear the flame light too) but then almost immediately it sounds like the flame goes out and tries to reignite. It never actually lights properly though, just continues the same ignite-fan-flame out-ignite cycle. After a while (a day or so) it seems to
