Carrier Furnace not igniting

Carrier model number 58pav090-16. Furnace seems to be cycling normally up until the gas relay is supposed to open. Inducer runs, pressure switch works, hot surface igniter turns on, then click from gas relay but no flame.

Tested gas relay valve for voltage. Seems to be receiving just over 24v. My thought is the gas valve but just looking for a second opinion.

Any other gas appliances in the house? Do they work?

Take apart and reseat anywhere the wires connect. There should be slide contacts on the valve. They can get corroded. Disconnecting the wires and giving the terminals on the wires a quick spray of contact cleaner can help.

Check the valve for continuity also.

So this took me by surprise. I tested for continuity and it passed. Then I thought about the post asking if my gas was on. I looked at my hot water heater and noticed the indicator light for the pilot was not blinking. I ran the hot water for a bit and sure enough there wasnít any after a bit.

So I called my utility company. Here, a contractor had called and said that my house, which is connected to another, was scheduled for demolition. So Iím currently waiting for someone to come and turn my gas back on. Thank you very much for youíre help guys.

That's pretty strange. A gas line never passes thru one house on its way to another. Two houses are not usually on a common feed either.
