Delayed Furnace Start Up?

Mike Lamb

Recommended Posts

I was doing a foreclosure purchase. The gas had been turned on the previous day. Gas stove, dryer and water heater fired.

2007 Goodman furnace did not fire when I turned up the thermostat. I left the thermostat on and continued with the inspection. About 45 minutes later the furnace fired. What could explain the delay?

My own (fairly new) Carrier will try 3 times, then shut down, but it's not permanent. About 8 minutes later, it will go through another 3 attempts. If nothing, another 8 minutes, etc.,

While it's trying to ignite, it's slowly bleeding the air out of the line. They eventually fire up.
