Question about Coleman Propane Forced Air Heater w/Electronic Ignition (50,000-80,000 BTU)

Open Question

Coleman Evcon Ignition Failure

I have a Coleman Evcon downdraft mobile home furnace (modelDGAH077BBSA) that would not fire this morning. All the relays andsolonoids appear to be activating. The gas relay does open and when thesensor detects unburnt fuel it shuts down and purges the system, youcan smell the unburnt fuel at the chiminy. The system light then goesfrom steady to one blink every 2-3seconds.


Thanks,
Ken

SOURCE: Coleman furnace -- fan runs, ingniter won't light,

Hi,
The chances are that the furnace was running when the power went out. This will cause the high limit switch to cutout and needs to be manually reset.
You will find that switch in the blower compartment near the blower. Usually somewher near the highest point of the cabinet.
Push the little red button firmly till it clicks.
When the power goes out while the furnace is running the heat builds up because the blower shuts down immediately and causes this limit switch to cut out.
If you have a electric tester you can also follow the low voltage circuit till you find the open switch. Ther is usually a wiring schematic on the door cover of most furnaces.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

SOURCE: coleman furnace wont fire

Check inside the door panel next to the wiring schematic, you should find the diagnostic codes. Look up 7 blinks. This should narrow down the problem. ( It sounds like a bad hot surface ignitor).
Good luck.....

SOURCE: Have a Evcon Coleman Furnace shows three green

I have had the same problem with mine for the last 2 years. Remove the motor on the side of the furnace(usually held on by 3 screws) and turn the fan blades inside by hand. after sitting all summer it seems to get stuck. If it moves freely, replace the motor and try to start it again. This fixed mine the last 2 years! Hope this helped.

Our coleman evcon furnace has started clicking over & over again before it starts up, we replaced the thermostat & the same thing happens.We are afraid that this is hard on the furnace & have resorted to...


Suspect that the igniter is causing the clicking (or could be a relay). Suggest having the furnace serviced. There is also a major recall for some models of the Coleman Evcon furnaces.

Coleman evcon furnace in mobile home works fine during the day but not at night. What could cause this?


I suspect water in the fuel that is freezing up due to the pressure difference across the jet and causing a blockage.

I have a coleman evcon furnace that wont work. The electrical box green light is not on at all so it cannot pinpoint what the error is. Any thoughts?


Hi, I would just make sure you have power to the furnace. Check breakers or look for the power switch on the electrical box. Also, some mobile homes have a wall switch that cuts power to the furnace.

I JUST BOUGHT A USED COLEMAN EVCON FURNACE MODEL #BGU09516 AND I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO VENT IT. PLEASE HELP, THANKS


It should have a two part chimmney with a 4 inch inner exhaust section and a larger 6 inch outer section that goes over the flange on the top of the furnace. If your existing chimmney does not have this you may have to buy a chimmney kit for a mobile home application.

Small blower motor? Are you talking about the combustion blower if so then check your vents for blockage.. if the vents are blocked won't work... if it has a control board init it will give you a diagnostic code. Flashing light on the board... count the flashes and look up the fault on the chart in your owners manual ot on the furnace door..
