Furnace not working

Hi all you Berkshire owners.
I have a new 2015 400QL. I just went out to run the generator a bit and thought I would try the furnace whilst I was out there.

No heat. I verified the propane is working by igniting a burner on the stove. but when I run the furnace, just cool (cold) air comes out. I went out to the exhaust on the side, and could hear some type of "fan" noise but after a while, that stopped and inside, all I get is cold air.

So, before I set up an appointment to take it back, is there anything I'm missing ? I set both zones to furnace.

Thanks,
Ken

I recommend going through about 10 to 15 attempts to ignite. Mine was doing the same thing and after about ten attempts it started working and haven't had an issue since. You'll need to turn the furnace off and then back on to restart it or else it stays in lock out.

I agree. Could be air in the gas line. Takes a few attempts.

Kenny, make sure the fan is in AUTO. Also set the clock on the thermostat.

No, I haven't tried any water yet. Brought it home in October and winterized it. Can't wait for spring to try though.

Good to know. I wasn't aware of a lock out, but it makes sense.

I will try everything suggested here. Thanks to all for the replies.
