A 2 month old Goodman GMH95 natural gas furnace has been working properly until tonight. Now it starts up properly, but after 30 seconds (and right when the cirulator fan kicks on) it shuts the gas valve stopping the flame. LED light flashes 8 times, which is not an option on the trouble shooting guide. Unit will retry every few minutes and cycles this way over and over. It appears the control module is not receiving the gas flame detection signal. What do we need to do?


Goodman's control boards are very sensitive as well as the connections to the gas valves. Check the wires and make sure they are snug and tight. With it being only 2 months old, I doubt the board is bad or the flame sensor(unless it is a used syste ... Air Conditioners

I noticed some straining noise coming from my a/c unit today. The fan on top of the condenser runs fine but as soon as the compressor tries to kick on the fan stops for a split second and you get a kind of surging noise from the condenser unit. Then the fans kicks back on, the the process repeats itself every couple of minutes. Meanwhile no cold air is being produced inside the house. Any ideas?

I bought a brand new LG L1210ER Window/Wall Unit air conditioner a couple days ago.

We have a 2000 Winnebago Adventurer with basement air, "true air". Yesterday our AC unit started making a loud buzzing noise about every 90 seconds. Like maybe the second compressor was trying to start up and couldn't. We turned the AC off for awhile, and when we started it up again the noise started immediately. It buzzes for maybe 10 seconds. What can we try ? Should we leave it turned off ? It is over 100 degrees here in Texas and we need help fast!!! Thank you. Pam

A/C runs cold when first turned on. Will run fine for about 1 hour, then the compressor starts to cycle on and off. Will run cold for approximately 2 minutes then compressor kicks off for about 4 or 5 minutes. Compressor then kicks back on for another 2 minutes and then kicks off. This cycle will continue for as long as you leave the unit on.

Recently purchased a second hand Carrier Split A/c -Model 42KPC019303 - 18000 BTU. The unit would work for awhile then shut off - fan included - and the green light would blink 5 times at intervals - but the unit did not start back. The sensor was changed and the unit started functioning normal for awhile - and then the problem resumed. Only difference is that this time the light blinks for about 10 mins and then the unit kicks back on. I want to know if this is a normal function, and if it ca

I found the Bryant furnace 395cav048090 calling for heat but not operational. I shut off power to the unit and switched power back on and the unit started its ignition sequence.

During this phase gas is being brought to the burner that you can smell however burner does not ignite gas. Unit continued with this opera

The fan on my Carrier central air conditioner a/c model 38ER036300 does not move when the compressor kicks on. The unit will heat up and then will start. It also will start when I give it a small push. The 30 amp circuit breaker will also vibrate for about 4 seconds and then will be fine. Should the fan blade move freely when the unit is off? It seems to have resistance. Does it need lubrcation or is it a sealed bearing?
