Question about Intertherm P3RA-048K Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Intertherm furnace We have an intertherm furnace that won't complete a heating cycle. I have to hit the reset button until eventually it will or won't. In the winter months we have to have it serviced pretty regularly (we live in Alaska). The service guys say that it gets sooty and they have to clean the eye (something like that). They can't come up with a reason for this other than the combustion air is not clean. It pulls air from inside the home and we don't smoke so I don't think we are really getting to the root of the problem.

On the oil burner is an air intake adjustment that will adjust the air flow that will reduce the soot. It sounds like they are not adjusting this properly.

Furnace lights blows heat in cycle, pops sensor on blower and continuosly blows air until button on sensor is pushed back in


If the sensor knocks the unit off and the the fan keeps blowing without a flame ,the limit (the sensor is a limit comptroller that turns off flame @ a set temp and allows the fan to run until the heat exchanger cools to @ set temp) has out lived its lifetime and needs to be replaced.the button is a manual reset that once reset would allow the unit to continue to run flame and blower at the same time after having been set once, if it is an ongoing problem and needs to be reset more than once then replace the limit control (sensor) in kind. (With the same mode and set-points for the limits)

You are over heating because of dirty filter, coils, or bad or collapsed ductwork check return especially. on the units data label there should be a max and min temp rise this is the difference from incoming and outgoing air through the furnace. Check this.
or it could actually be a bad switch.

Intertherm Furnace Will not stay on


Your furnace is likely getting too hot check your filter. make sure the fan is running. if you have weak air flow you may have a blocked heat transfer coil. you should have your heating and cooling system serviced yearly by a qualified company to inspect and test equipment.

Ruud air to air heatpump intertherm propane furnace honeywell th5220d non programable thermostate.fan on furnace will not turn off in aux.mode even though the furnace heat kicks on and off. thank you for...


Make sure fan relay is wired correctly (G) wire. Ensure the fan on therm is not on, it should be on Auto or off.

If your furnace is short cycling because it has to keep heating your home, the delay in the control board may be staying on to compensate for the exchangers getting hot. If it heats normally, then put your attention to your thermostat.

Set the heating system on aux heat only. Fan should not be on, if it does stay on after a heating cycle, see if the furnace is heating normally, and reaching temp as desired before the heat comes off. Then check the therm wiring, pull the face of the therm, disconnect green wire (fan) and try the heating again.
