Westerville heating and cooling service HVAC repair
Diagnostic service call on 2006 Trane gas furnace. Upon arrival found thermostat off. Turned thermostat to heat. Furnace tried to light, gas valve energized but ignitor didn’t glow. Tested ignitor, very high ohm reading (needs replaced). Checked voltage to ignitor, correct voltage is not present. Voltage is bouncing around from 70vac to 100vac, ignitor needs 120vac to work correctly. Control board is not sending proper voltage to ignitor (board needs replaced.) Also found inducer housing leaking water in burner section. Inducer will need replaced. Also found burners are starting to rust. Control board in this particular furnace is very expensive to replace. ***Do not recommend putting that kind of money into a 14 year old system. ***AC is also 14 years old and is a R-22 system. R-22 refrigerant is no longer made. Recommend replacing ac also
Upon arrival found thermostat blank but no fault code at the Comfortmaker furnace. Found that the batteries in the thermostat would not turn thermostat on anymore. Found there was no C wire hooked up to thermostat. Connected a C wire to thermostat, changed some wiring down at the furnace and connected C at the furnace. Thermostat now comes on, cycled heat through thermostat, everything running good. Normal operation at this time.
