Goodman furnace gas valve not opening
To ensure that the valve is opening, ensure there is enough natural gas and adjust the thermostat setting to a lower temperature.
Ideally, this valve should open and close with no problems. But sometimes valves get stuck in one position or leak for various reasons – even if the valve is new. Either way, there’s a risk that your furnace won’t work correctly and may be at risk for fire if it doesn’t have enough gas flowing through it.
If your gas valve isn’t opening, these are some possible causes:
-There may be something blocking the valve from opening all the way
-A high-pressure setting could be causing too much pressure to build up around the valve -The pilot lights might not be lit
The most common reason that the gas valve is not opening is due to a bent or broken control rod.
