    My Gas heat cycles a few times and then locks out. I have to power on and off at the thermosat and then it will cycle a few more times and lock out. It's a Rheem A/C with gas heating. Robert Shaw SP715A ignition control.
    What maybe be the cause? thanks in advance for any help or opinions.

    Could be a few things. Unfortunately you need to first read the rules of the site. The best advice would be to call a reputable service company and have your unit looked at.

    Welcome to HVAC TALK. However this site has rules against giving out technical advice to DIY'ers. I have attached a link below for your convenience.

    Here's something to think about...

    When was the last time you had your unit cleaned and inspected?

    Now you have a problem with the unit. Fuel costs are skyrocketing.

    So why not call in a professional to repair the unit? While they are there they can clean and inspect your unit to insure a safe living environment for you and your loved ones. Not to mention, having an efficient running system could save you more than the cost of the service.

    What's your safety worth? I'm guessing more than the repair bill.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    take it easy guys he didn't ask for step by step DIY advice--just possible problems. Johntee--when was the last time you checked your filter? Could be bad airflow...maybe a bad flame sensor....definitely call and have your unit serviced.
