Servicing Instructions
9.1
United Technologies Hot Surface Ignition System
IMPORTANT!
Inspect and check operation of this appliance monthly. Follow the
instructions below. If a problem is detected, contact a qualified
technician to make any necessary repairs.
In an effort to minimize the time required to trouble shoot this system:
1. Turn off the gas supply at the main gas valve.
2. Disconnect electric power to system at main fuse of circuit breaker, if connected.
3. Visually inspect equipment for apparent damage. Check wiring for loose
connections.
4. Inspect igniter for visible cracking or scale deposits. Inspect flame sensor for
position or deposits shorting sensor to burner.
5. After performing the above inspections, restore gas supply, and electric power to the
equipment. Close thermostat contacts to cycle the system. If a “no heat” condition
persists, the three visual indicators listed below will help determine if system is
operating properly.
1
‰
2
‰
3
‰
The igniter will warm up and glow bright red.
The main burner flame will ignite.
The main burner flame will continue to burn after the igniter is
turned off.
Trouble shooting the system consists of checking for these three visual indications.
The Visual Check Charts define the proper action if any of these indications do not
occur.
DANGER!
DO NOT OMIT THIS STEP WHEN TROUBLESHOOTING THE APPLIANCE
Line voltage (120 VAC or 240 VAC) could be present on the surface of the igniter if the system is not
correctly wired. Such voltage can cause death or serious injury.
1.
Disconnect electric power to system at main fuse or circuit breaker.
2.
Remove draft shield (if necessary) to gain access to the igniter.
3.
Disconnect the igniter socket from the wiring harness.
4.
Connect an AC voltmeter across the terminal connected to the white wire and the chassis ground,
and then reconnect electric power to the system.
5.
If voltage exists between the terminal connected to the white wire and the chassis ground, the main
power supply lines are improperly connected to the furnace. Reverse incoming line voltage leads.

1018 Series Hot Surface Ignition
Status Indicator Error Conditions
The status indicator LED will not be lit with power applied to the board and the control operating
properly. However, if the control is not operating properly, the status indicator LED will flash in
one of the following error codes.
1. Status Indicator Flashing One Time
When the status indicator LED shows the error code of a single repeated flash, the control is
in lock-out, because the sail switch was stuck closed.
2. Status Indicator Flashing Two Times
When the status indicator LED shows the repeating error code of two flashes, the control is in
lock-out because the control circuits did not receive the “closed” signal from the high limit
switch and the sail switch within the required amount of time.
3. Status Indicator Flashing Three Times
When the status indicator LED shows the repeating error code of three flashes, the control is
in lock-out due to either a failed ignition attempt, a gas valve error, or a false flame sensed
during the pre-purge of warm-up periods. If false flame has been sensed, the control will
return to normal operation, and begin a new ignition sequence when the false flame is no
longer present.
4. Status Indicator Flashing Four Times
When the status indicator LED shows the repeating error code of four flashes, the control has
gone into lock-out due to a failure within the control board.

Pipe Sizing Guidelines
10.1
1.
2.
3.
Calculating HVR & ELOP
Using a system schematic, label each piping
section of the system starting at the meter or
regulator. A different pipe section starts
where the gas demand of the system
changes, usually at a junction.
Determine the Heating Value Required
(HVR) in BTUH (BTU's per hour) for each
section of pipe.
ELOP = (length from meter to most remote heater)
+ (Minor loss equivalents of the system)
IMPORTANT: Use the ELOP value from this
equation for size determination of all pipe sections.
4.
HVR = (no. heaters supplied by pipe
section) X (heat output per heater)
10.2
Determine the Equivalent Length Of Pipe (ELOP)
required for sufficient gas service.
Use the ELOP value from step 3, and the HVR of
each pipe section to determine the required pipe size
for either natural gas (NG) (Table 1) or liquid propane
(LP) (Table 2) from the table 'Maximum Capacity Of
Pipe'.
Directions For Reading Pipe Size From Tables:
EXAMPLE: Four 40,000 BTUH (12 kW) heaters will be installed on the gas pipe line in the 'Arbitrary Piping System'
diagram below. NOTE: Values given in English and Metric equivalent units.
1.
Determine the HVR value for each pipe section of the system.

2.
Determine the ELOP. Length from meter to most remote heater = length from a to e (or g) = 100ft (30m) + 25ft
(8 m) = 125ft (38 m) Minor loss equivalents from Table 1 = 1 gate valve x 2ft/valve (1 m/valve) + 3 tees x 11
ft/tee (4 m/tee) =35ft (13 m). Calculated ELOP = 125ft (38 m) + 35ft (13 m) = 160 ft (51 m) Tabulated ELOP =
200ft (60 m) Round up to the nearest table value.
3.
In the appropriate table, NG (Table 2) or LP (Table 3), select the column showing the ELOP or the next longer
length, if the table does not give the exact length. Use this column to compare table values to the HVR values.
Use the Natural Gas table (Table 2) in this example. From step 2,
ELOP = 200ft (60 m) Locate the column labeled 200ft
(60 m) in Table 2.
4.
Select a pipe section and read down the ELOP column to
find the maximum gas capacity that matches the HVR for
that particular pipe section. If the exact value is not
listed, choose the next larger value in the column. In this
example, start with pipe section c-e. For pipe section ce, HVR = 40,000 BTUH (12 kW). From Table 2, column
200 ft, 40 (12) is not listed (NOTE: The table values are
in thousands of BTUH's). The next larger value of 72
(21) is read from the table, corresponding to 72,000
BTUH (21 kW).
5.
Follow the row leftward until you reach the columns
labeled 'Internal Diameter' and 'Nominal pipe size'. Read
the pipe size for the particular pipe section.
For
example, for pipe section c-e, the pipe size is ¾ inch
(0.824 in.) (19.1 mm). Repeat for each pipe section.
