Cleaning flame sensor on Goodman furnace
The goodman furnace is designed to keep the sensor clean and the flame lit. The goodman furnace will operate normally even if the sensor is dirty or clogged. However, an improper signal from this sensor may cause a safety shutdown of your goodman furnace. Therefore, keeping your flame sensor clean is recommended for the best performance of your goodman heating and cooling system.
-Turn off the power and disconnect all electrical connections to your heating system
-Locate the flame signal tube that runs into your house with a fan mounted inside
-Remove any dirt or debris from around the tube with a pipe cleaner (gently move it through)
-Thoroughly brush out any dust buildup in or around the tube and fan area with a clean, dry cloth, being careful not to let dust fall onto other components in open spaces
