    DT & Debbie StricklandWhy didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    March 17Our furnace suddenly stopped working. I can hear the igniter clicking, it sounds just like it does when it runs out of propane. And the fan kicks on just fine. But I checked and it’s full. Plus the water heater is still working on propane as well. We’ve ...  more

      pokeysRVadventures March 17 It could possibly be the sail switch. The fan will run but not heat if it's bad. Here's an article about it.

      Jerry and Anna March 17 Ours did that at one point and I opened it up and checked all of the connections. After that it started working and has worked ever since.

      Solo Joe March 17 I had a situation where my furnace would light and run and shut down, always 3 times in a row, then just stop trying. Each time it sounded like the furnace was lit but wouldn't keep running. The cause was a misaligned exhaust tube.  Once that was properly...  more

      Jim & Sharon Ham March 17 We removed the control board from the furnace and burnished the copper contacts with the eraser end of a pencil.  Used some spray contact cleaner on the board plug in socket.  Reassemble and it has worked for 4 years.

        Mike & Debbie E March 17 This sounds like the best first approach. While the sail switch is a common failure point I do not believe the igniter will fire if a signal is not received from the sail switch.

      MRJohnston March 17 I carry a spare sail switch, igniter, and control board with me.   That covers 90% (typically) of what goes wrong with an RV furnace.

      dalyn8 March 17 My furnace would blow cold air with fan but not light. I took the male/female connections apart and cleaned them put back together and it works perfectly. Those connecters seem to get a film on them and they loose contact with each other.

        DT & Debbie Strickland March 17 Where are those located on the furnace? Is that where the gas connects?

      Tina Sumner March 17 Our furnace does that when we are at a higher elevation but when we are at a low elevation it works fine.  We checked with the manufacturer and found that for our 2020 Fleetwood Flair we would have to install a kit to allow more air into the system.

        DT & Debbie Strickland March 17 We haven’t moved since August, so I don’t think elevation is the problem! But I think something may be clogged & impeding the air or gas flow

        MRJohnston March 17 This RV tech has over 80 repair videos on YouTube.   Very informative.  Watch the one on furnaces.

        We have personally used him, and he’s very good.

      Bill.E March 28 I had that problem and it turned out to be ash on the igniter.  So remove the screws that hold the furnace in place and shake the whole box, this will clean the ash.  Then replace the screws and give it a go.  I bet it lights and stays going.  It could be...  more

      KampR March 29 When ours did that it was because of moisture in the circuit board.  You can dry it out with a hair dryer, and once ours was working again, we sealed with caulk around the area so moisture would stay out better.
