Newer gas furnaces now include flame sensors. The new sensors detect the flame and control the gas valve to ensure the gas line is open only when burning. Otherwise, toxic gas could leak into your home. Knowing what to do when the flame sensor stops working is essential for your safety and that of your family. Call us at Comphel Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. immediately if you suspect any problems with your gas furnace in Sonora, CA.

Furnace Flame Sensor Problem

Your flame sensor may have an issue if you notice very short heating cycles. Cycles that last less than a minute could indicate the flame sensor may need to be cleaned or replaced. If you notice a short cycle, turn off the power to the furnace and shut off the gas valve. Then, call an expert to locate and evaluate the flame sensor for you. Removing the cover on a defective furnace yourself can be hazardous. Our technicians have the expertise to examine all components of your heating equipment, locate any areas that look burned or need cleaning, and then do any work necessary to fix the problem.

Let an Expert Remedy the Situation

While cleaning or replacing the furnace flame sensor may look like an easy job, we don’t recommend trying to do it yourself. Instead, contact us and schedule service so our technician can visit your home and diagnose the issue. We’ll assess the problem and do any repairs or replacements you need to get your furnace running correctly and efficiently once again.
