Hi, I'm Tom Hutchinson from Hutchinson Plumbing, Heating and Cooling. I'm here today to talk to you about troubleshooting your gas burners in your gas furnace. It's always important when you are working on a gas appliance to think of safety first. So you want to turn the power off to your gas furnace and the gas valve off while you're doing work on your gas appliance. In this case the burner assemblies are what deliver the gas to the heat exchanger and once the gas valve is opened by the thermostat calling for heat it will send the gas through the gas manifold and into the burner assemblies. Servicing your burners is simply accomplished by making sure they are clean and this can be done with a household vacuum cleaner to remove any dust, spider webs or anything that may have accumulated over the Summer season when the gas furnace was not operating. Once you have done that you turn the power back on to your gas furnace, make sure the gas valve is on, set your thermostat at the heat setting and when the furnace comes on your furnace will start and you'll see the burners operate. If they do not, you'll want to call a professionally-trained service technician to come in and make the necessary repairs to keep your family comfortable for the Winter season.
