Payne Furnace Troubleshooting
If you're looking for help fixing your Payne Furnace, look no further! Our comprehensive Payne Furnace Troubleshooting guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and show you how to read your model's error codes.
The igniter gets very hot and glows bright orange to light the gas burner. If the igniter fails or cracks, the furnace won’t heat. To determine if the igniter is faulty, remove the igniter and inspect it for cracks. If the igniter is cracked, replace it. If the igniter is not cracked, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.
The flame sensor monitors the burner to detect whether or not a flame is present. If the flame sensor is defective, it might fail to detect a flame. If the flame sensor does not detect a flame, the control board will shut off voltage to the gas valve to prevent the furnace from heating. Sometimes, if the flame sensor is dirty, it will fail to detect a flame. Try cleaning the flame sensor with a fine abrasive pad. If the furnace still doesn’t heat, replace the flame sensor.
Draft Inducer Motor
The draft inducer motor draws air into the heat exchanger and then exhausts it out the flue. The pressure switch senses a pressure change and closes a switch to signal the control board that the furnace has proper air flow. If the draft inducer motor is defective, it may be unable to close the pressure switch, causing the ignition process to stall and the furnace to shut off after a few minutes. If the ignition process stalls, the furnace will shut off. If the draft inducer motor is at fault, replace it.
The control board regulates the power supply to all of the components of the furnace. If the control board fails, it might not send voltage to the ignition system, causing the furnace not to heat.
Flame Rollout Limit Switch
The flame rollout switch monitors the heat surrounding the burners. If the inducer fan motor cannot draw enough air through the burners, or if the furnace is not venting properly, the rollout switch will open to halt the ignition sequence and prevent the furnace from heating. To determine if the flame rollout switch is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity and the reset button is not tripped replace it. Be aware that poor airflow through the burner is often a result of insufficient ventilation or a restricted exhaust vent. Make sure that your furnace is in a properly ventilated location and the exhaust vent is clear of obstructions.
The wall thermostat has electrical contacts that control the power supply to the furnace. If the contacts in the thermostat fail, the furnace will not turn on. To determine if the thermostat is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the wall thermostat does not have continuity, replace it.

I have had this furnace for approximately two years now. I am satisfied with it as it heats up well, but I sometimes wish that it could do better. If I were to purchase a furnace again, I would buy the same brand but may go with a different model.
I am delighted with this furnace. I bought it a little over a year ago. I previously used a brand that wouldn’t heat past 70. However, with the Payne furnace, my house is now warm and inviting. I would gladly recommend it to anyone in search of a good furnace.
I purchased this furnace a little over a year ago. I first disliked how expensive it was, but the salesman assured me that it would be good for a split level house. However, this is not so; it barely regulates the air in my basement. I have not had to repair it though.
We have recently relocated to a new house where we realized that the existing furnace was actually over 20 years old and had to get a new one. I looked at several options and landed on the two-stage Payne furnace. We’ve used it for about a year, and it has been highly efficient. I couldn’t be happier. I would happily recommend this furnace to a friend.
