99 Bounder Furnace not working. Clicks, Smells like gas, no fire.
The furnace is not working on my 99 Bounder, 34V. I took the cover off, found a nest of some sort, destroyed it and vacuumed it out. You can see a before and after picture below. It didn't help. There may be another nest further back where I can't see it. Or maybe the ignitor probe is corroded, I had this happen with the water heater a few times. Each time I cleaned it up with some sand paper....whoosh, away it went again.
Here's where I am at.
I turn on the furnace at the thermostat. The blower kicks on for about 10 seconds to clear out the chamber then I get a click and the smell of gas. About fifteen seconds later, the same thing.....three times. But, no fire and no hot air. It had been working.
I can tell that I am going to have to remove the darn thing. But before I do that, I was hoping from some advice from someone with a little experience. Without this advice (if left to my own devices), I would turn off the gas at the tank, unscrew the line where it comes into the furnace (see pic), pull out everything I could, work on it, put it back in, screw the propane line back on, turn the gas back on, and...........see if I blow myself up.
Any advice would be great. I will not be calling a professional. I can't afford it and I like to do things myself. That being said, for those who would have suggested that, if you can give me some advice on how I can educate myself as best as possible before digging in, I would be happy to do the research.
Thanks folks, and happy RVing!
PS. I have included other pictures that may not be useful, but I guess it never hurts.
