Gas Regulator???


A Carrier furnace about 10 years old.
Over the past few weeks I have had numorous problems starting with the porcelain ingnitor going bad, once replaced, the main board was bad (which may have caused the ignitor to crap out),replaced the board and for a few days it was fine.. then heard noises like small explosions from the furnace. Through the site glass i could see the furnace come on as normal and after a minute or 2 the flames would just about disappear and re-ignite causing the explosive sound. The 24volts to the regulator was never interrupted unless it was too quick to see on my meter. Ive gently tapped on the regulator thinking something was restricting the flow... but still not help.. ANY IDEA??

When I got to this point I decided you should seek HVAC professional help for safety reasons;

I probably wouldn't wait for the big explosion. Better to call for service than to have to call the Fire Dept.
