How do i fix a rbhc14j11sfa furance that is burning hot when shut off?


Most electric heating units have a safety to ensure positive air flow before energizing heating elements. It seems to me failed and the element burned. any damaged elements will need to be replaced as will any failed safeties. Then you will need to determine why the elements continued to be energized when the unit was off.

I JUST BOUGHT THIS UNIT IT HAS THE OUTSIDE UNIT AND THE INSIDE UNIT AND I WAS TOLD THAT THE HEAT PACKS IN THE INSIDE HANDLER IS FOR EMERGENCY HEAT ONLY...IS THIS TRUE?


Yes, if you are talking about a heat pump. It you have an electric furnace inside, the electric elements are for emergency heat. Otherwise, unless you switch it manually at the thermostat, the heatpump (outdoor unit) will run all year around. If you want to use your inside heater (electric heater) just switch your thermostat to "emergency heat" and it will turn on the electrical elements instead of the outdoor unit. This way will make your elec. bill higher tho. The heat pump is much more efficient. Hope this helps you , have good day

On our AE125, the thermal cut-off is tripping AFTER the water is turned off. The heating element is getting so hot you cannot touch it


The elements are getting over heated then set temperature.You have a defective thermostat. The elements will continue to heat until they reach the set point of the thermostat. Try to lower the temp setting first. If that does not fix it, you'll need to repalce the thermostat, located very near the element, under the screwed cover on the side of the tank.------------- To know how this heater works, read as follows:---

Because electric tankless water heaters have to instantaneously raise the temperature of incoming water to a selected hot water temperature, they require very powerful heating elements. To power the heating elements of this 27,000 Watt model, you will need to upgrade the electrical service you were using for your storage tank water heater. The PowerStar AE125 will require a 240V, 200 Amp service. In addition you will need to install three 40 amp dedicated double pole breakers in your electrical box. In Canada, you will require one 120 Amp breaker.

The PowerStar AE125 electric tankless water heater incorporates a very sensitive flow sensor, and three heating elements. The heat from the electric elements is electronically modulated on the basis of the flow rate of the water entering the water heater, and the temperature rise that the water heater must achieve. Through its electronic modulation system, the AE125 maintains a very precise hot water temperature. As a safety precaution, each of the three heating modules is protected by an electro-mechanical thermal cut-out. This device will cut power to a particular module if the temperature gets too hot.

This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Can I convert a propane furnace to electric?


Actually yes! You can install electric elements in the plenum that turn on by your thermostat. The convection blower from the furnace can be used. You can also install a heat pump system that will give you both heat and air conditioning.

A/c running with heater elements on at the same


It could be the thermostat. At the thermostat, try taking the wires off of the R and Y terminals and connect those wires together. If the heating elements do not run, change the thermostat. If the elements still run, try jumping across the R and Y terminals inside the unit. If the elements do not run, change the thermostat and the thermostat wires.

Heat unit not blowing hot


Chances are the thermal fuse has blown on the two elements. This is very common on electric furnaces.
There may also be a reset-able temperature sensor.

Turn of the power and access the electrical connections of the heater elements. First, look for burned connections to any of the components, all the way back to and including the sequencer relays. It's very common for these to burn as well.

If all looks OK, then look for a round button about the size of a quarter on each of the elements. If there is a red button on top, press it, then test to see if all the elements heat up. If they don't, or there is not a reset button, then it's probably the thermal fuse, a little silver bullet shaped piece about 1/2 inch long, and 1/8 inch in diameter. Usually you must remove the burner from the heater casing by disconnecting the wires, removing the two screws, and sliding the element frame out.

The final problem can be one or both of the elements has broken, or one has broken, and the other has a blown thermal fuse.

It could also be blown power fuses which provide power for those particular elements. Check all the larger diameter fuses, and if any are bad, look deeper for the cause of the fuse failure. REPLACE WITH ONLY FUSES OF THE SAME RATING!

The sequencers have a habit of failing as well, and are harder to test. If all the above checks out OK, then replace the sequencers.

Please reply if you have additional questions. Please include the make and model of furnace as well.

MY ELECTRIC FURNACE WILL COME ON BUT THE FAN WONT COME ON WITH IT


Check your amps on your sequencers. Ensure they are pulln the correct amps. Ensure you have continuity in your elements. They should energize with your blower. Your amps should not exceed 25 for each element. If this is too technical, then, ensure your filters are clean, restart the furnace by resetting the breaker two or three times. Pull off your therm and connect red and white wire together and see if it fires up.
