White-Rodgers Gas Furnace Valves
Education You Can Build On
When To Replace A Gas Valve?
• The valve should be replaced if any of the following occur:
– The outlet pressure remains above the set point or fluctuates
• NOTE: The manifold regulation should stabilize after about 20 seconds and
stay within +/- 10% of the set pressure setting
– The regulation setting cannot be adjusted
– The valve will not open to allow main gas flow
– The gas valve has been subjected to water flooding
•
NOTE: When servicing a gas furnace it is important that the inlet and
the outlet pressures be checked with an accurate pressure gauge
– You cannot visually look at a main burner flame to determine if the
pressures are within the manufacturers specifications
– Always check the gas valve with a water and soap bubble solution after
servicing to ensure there are no leaks

Rated Valve Capacity
Pressure Drop:
Range of Regulation:
Pressure differential is the agency rated amount of
gas (BTU’s) that can pass through the gas valve
based on inlet and outlet pipe size.
Is the minimum and maximum BTU/Hr capacity of
the valve to maintain regulation pressure settings.
