The heat exchanger is a bear to change. depending on the age of the unit it might be more practical to replace the unit. However unless you trust this service tech I'd get a second opinion, because it is rare that a heat exchanger will crack, plus by law he or she should have shut the furnace down do to carbonminoxde. Especially rare in Coleman Evcon series units.

Sounds like it isn't getting a call for heat. If you have a digital thermostat it could be the problem. I have seen them look like they are working but burn out. A simple way to check is take the stat off the wall. There is 2 wires. It's low voltage so don't worry about shock. Touch and hold them together. If it fires up change the t stat. On a . 2 wire it makes no difference which goes to W or R

Burner flame going out on windy days on Coleman Evcon LP furnace


This sounds like a bad heat exchanger. It is possible that you do not see the crack because the crack is closed when the heat exchanger is cold (or room temp). Allow the furnace to heat up, this will allow the expansion of the crack. Turn the power off and examine the heat exchanger while it is still hot.

you probably have a cracked heat exchanger which is causing the rollout switches to trip.even the tiniest of cracks will cause the fan to blow the flame back into the unit and cause them to trip. check the heat exchanger for even the tiniest of cracks if so replace it. and be sure to have a carbon monoxide alarm in your home.

The repairman said there was excessive rust and the area was pitted near the heat exchanger. The furnace is a Coleman EVCON Model BGD12520 about 11 years old. Could this be residue from the burner or...


if he said there is rusted heat exchanger he was right not to start the unit . you can only call for a second opinion and have a nother repairman confure the heat exchanger is beyond its life. and then ask if there is replacement exchanger avalable for your furnace if its not to old this may be a less expensive alternative.
hope this helps you

please post fead back
