I'm new here and hoping I can get some input on this Rheem furnace in my building.
I have a Rheem RGRA 90 plus furnace and some ongoing issues with it.
When I go away for a week and then come back home and try to fire up the heat I get normal activity..the blower turns on for a few(20-30)seconds and then when the igniter starts clicking I get nothing. The furnace won't fire.
I found that if I tap on the gas valve while the igniter is clicking, the furnace will fire.
I've replaced the valve as a check on that part...Same problem.
I'm actually looking for advice as to what to be aware of when I bring an HVAC guy in to look at this. I am VERY wary of this because I've been ripped off in the past. I'm trying to avoid the "emergency repeair" scenario.
Have any of you had any experiences like this with a Rheem?
