My furnace which is a ComfortMaker RPJ II is not working. The dummy
light is a continuous flash which states that the "flame is sensed but
there is no call for heat". Anyone have any suggestions? What is weird
is that when i shut of the breaker for the furnace and turn it back on
the furnace sounds like it wants to start and then it goes off after a
few seconds.....Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
CAll a licenced company with insurance to come repair it.
Thats not weird, thats to keep you from mucking up..its called a hard
lockout, and if you will simply allow it to stay off, get a tech out, he can
actually tell what is happening. When they hard lock, they hard lock for a
reason...and its NOT to keep trying to get it to fire.
Altho, with those old Carrier boards, we already know.

You can try cleaning the thermocouple. That's the part the pilot
flame plays on. If it doesn't work try replacing it. Its easy enough
to do and its sure a lot cheaper than calling a service guy. That's
usually the cause of the problem you described. Even if that's not
the cause you still have a brand new thermocouple installed that will
last you a lot longer than the old one.
Think so huh? Ok...whatever. I guess you invested in the proper tools that
cost over $9000 to have handy when something fails....
BTW...no one said to replace the furnace....but you read what you wanna
