Goodman furnace ignitor
A malfunctioning furnace can be dangerous and lead to property damage or injuries. That’s why it’s not just a good idea to have a backup plan for when the goodman furnace ignitor stops working- it becomes necessary.
The Goodman Furnace Ignitor is the device that controls the heating process. It is one of the most crucial components in a furnace. It must be mounted at a specific distance from the flame sensor and another radiant heat component to work properly. The Goodman Furnace Ignitor sometimes needs to be replaced since it may fail over time for various reasons.
This article will cover how to identify an issue with your ignitor and what you can do about it.
The Goodman Furnace Ignitor is a small but important part of the furnace to function. It is placed inside the furnace and its job is to “touch off” the gas that will burn up in the flame chamber.
The ignitor is a small piece of ceramic with an electrical resistance coil on one side, which when activated by an electric current from the thermostat, heats up and provides enough heat to ignite gas in the furnace.
Some common problems with an igniter are running out of heating element or coil wire, or not being able to reach full heat quickly enough before gas starts flowing.
