gas delivered to the Burner.
Manifold
The tube delivering gas from the Gas
Valve to the Main Burner Orifice.
Manual Reset Switch A Limit Switch manually reset after
reaching it's set temperature.
MicroAmps:
Amps sent back to the Circuit Board to
establish a flame is present.
Millivolts
Voltage created by a Thermocouple or
Thermopile.
Multi-Try
Circuit Board providing 2 or 3 trials
Circuit Board
for ignition.
OEM

"Original Equipment Manufacture".
Pig Tail
(see Field Electrical Hook Up)
Pilot Light Assembly An assembly used to light the burner.
Plenum
The metal box enclosing the
Combustion Chamber directing the
heated air to the duct outlets.
Power Supply
A source of electrical power, usually a
converter, inverter or battery.
Primary Air
A portion of the combustion air mixing
directly in the Burner at the Main
Burner Orifice.
Resonating
A whining noise created by a Burner
with an improper air to gas mixture.
Return Air
Air pulled into the furnace, heated,
force through duct outlets back to the
living area.
Safety Lockout
Circuit Board not sensing a flame,
cutting power to the Gas Valve.

Terminology
Sooting
A black powder that builds up around
the Burner in the Combustion
Chamber normally caused by an
improper air to gas mixture.
Start Capacitor
A device giving an electrical boost to
start an A/C motor.
Static Pressure
Amount of pressure inside the Furnace
Plenum or Duct caused by the ability
to dispel air out the duct outlets.
Thermocouple
Safety device used to generate an
electrical signal sent to the Gas Valve
to hold the Pilot Flame on.
Thermopile
Safety device much like a
Thermocouple. It gives a much higher
electrical output, also used to open the
Main Valve with a Thermostat.
Thermostat
Device used with the Furnace to
regulate the room air temperature.
Time Delay Relay
A normally open Relay. When
activated closes, sending power to the
Blower Motor. When deactivated
allows Blower to run for a period of
time to cool the Combustion Chamber.
Transformer
Device reducing 120 VAC to 24 VAC.
U-Tube
Tool measuring gas pressure in inches
of water.
VOM
Meter reading voltages and OHMs
resistance.
Valve Coil
Electromagnetic Coil on the Gas Valve
holding and releasing a plunger to
start and stop the flow of gas.
