How to Fix a Furnace That Is Not Getting Gas

You are getting ready to turn on your furnace, but it is not getting gas. What can you do? It can be a fairly easy repair, especially if you have a decent quality furnace and have been following some simple steps to maintain it properly. With that being said, I would like to go over a few steps that can help you get it running again as soon as possible.

One of the first things that you should do is check the lines of the furnace. Any leaks in the lines should be immediately corrected, as you do not want any gas to be leaked and caused a fire in your home. Make sure that there are no visible damage to the furnace itself, because it will still be dangerous and cause damage if it is broken. Another thing to look for is that the fuel is still being delivered to the furnace. If the gas is running out, then something has to change. Another thing to look for is that you have a matchstick. Most people use matches for wood but that is not a good idea with a gas powered furnace.

When you get to the furnace, make sure that you check the gas and gasket seal. If you find any leaks, then you will need to replace the gasket. You may also need to add an additional line to get the gas to flow again. It could take up to a few weeks or a month for the gas to be fully restored, so be patient and you should get it running again in no time. It will probably be a little hard to start at first, but once you get going, it will be great. This is a fairly simple repair to do and should not take long to fix.
