What is recommended to clean the flame arrestor?

Re: Flame Arresters–How to clean Use a stiff bristled brush to remove any debris and blow it out with compressed air. I leave it sit out overnight to allow the fuel to evaporate before installing it back on the motor. Always works for me.

Can you jump a flame sensor?

Yes. You can bypass the flame sensor. However, if you do so, you can’t manually light your furnace, and you’ve got to have proper bypassing safety measures in place. But it’s advisable not to bypass the flame sensor.

Can you clean a spark igniter?

If your furnace has a spark ignitor and it’s working haphazardly, it too could be covered with soot, and a blast of compressed air may be enough to clean it. Compressed air can also clean a blocked pilot tube that is causing the pilot flame to burn weakly or not at all.

Can an ignitor be cleaned?

It is not necessary to clean a hot surface igniter as it blow off any dust. However contrary to silicon carbide ceramic hot surface ignitor which are very brittle and shouldn’t be touched, silicon nitride hot surface ignitor are very robust and can be cleaned manually iff really necessary.

Is a flame arrestor an air filter?

The K&N Flame Arrestor makes the best air-filtration technology available for marine engine use.

Why do flame sensors fail?

Possible Causes of a Flame Sensor Malfunction The most common is that it is dirty. Because burning fuel of any kind produces trace amounts of moisture, over prolonged exposure to these conditions, metal will rust. Since your sensor is made of metal, rust can build up, preventing proper sensing of the flame.

Can a furnace run without a flame sensor?

It’s a thin, metal rod that monitors the pilot flame. If the pilot flame goes out, the flame sensor will turn the unit off to prevent natural gas from leaking into the home. Without the flame sensor, if the pilot light goes out but the gas valve remains open, the gas will not burn and will seep out of the furnace.
