Furnace Problem

My 99 Land Yacht 31 furnace does not light but the blower works. There was a water leak from the kitchen faucet dipping into the furnace compartment that may have caused a short i the circuit board. Any advise?

Furnace Problem

It may be that the board connectors are corroded from the moisture. Unplug them and clean the contact points. Also the pilot area igniter and burner may need cleaning up in order for you to get spark.
If you need a new board. The dinosaur boards are a better buy and more reliable than the OEM boards.
Are you sure you have gas to the furnace?

The igniter may also have worn, and the gap is too wide. I had to finally change the igniter in my furnace, and now it works well.

Joel, your furnace is most likely the same as mine, and is located under the stove. If you remove the cover panel, you will see the igniter - it's just like a spark plug with a gap. I removed it and cleaned the tip with a wire brush, and then using pliers, adjusted the gap to about 1/8th inch. After several adjustments, I noticed that the stiff wires making up the sparking gap were burnt and shorter - so I bought 2 new igniters (just make sure that you get exactly the same part number igniter), one to replace the worn one and the other to put into a small zip-lock bag fastened with duct tape attached to the inside of the compartment door in case I need to replace the igniter again.

BTW, I have spares for "critical" items kept near where you need them - I have a spare water pump in a plastic bag beside the one in service and a spare seal for the toilet bowl in a bag, with instructions, under the vanity.

I took the old one with me to the RV parts store and they were able to match it. It also helps to tell them the model number of the furnace - if you have the AS Owners' manual, you can show them the drawing of the igniter.
