Furnace removal - 89 Excella

I'm having furnace problems and would like to remove the furnace on my 89 Excella 32' trailer. On the exterior of the trailer there are 3 vent holes. Two of the vents are together and one slightly to the side towards the rear. Do these vent plates have to be removed to get the furnace out? Also I would appreciate any info on what has to be taken loose inside for removal. The problem I am having is that the burning won't ignite. The fan comes on but just blows cold air. I have replaced the limit switch. I can here the igniter click after the fan comes on. All of the other gas appliances work fine. I'm thinking maybe the sail switch is bad or maybe the circuit board.

Ben

Ben-

The exterior vent grills don't need to be removed. Search using tab above for "furnace" and "removal" and "repair" to see threads with pictures for how others have done it... Not very complicated, though important to secure gas line and reconnect without leaks...

You should have (or get..) furnace service manual applicable to yours before you begin..

Often times the solenoid gas valve gets sticky and wont open properly. It can be dis-assembled and cleaned or replaced. It's a common problem.

I found a service manual for my furnace after searching through several pages of threads. I did remove the exterior vent grills as it made removing and installing the furnace easier. The ignitor board was bad. I replaced it today. I HAVE HEAT!!!

Thanks,
Ben
