SOURCE: LENNOX FURNACE WONT FIRE BREAKER WAS TRIPPED CAME

I would turn the furnace off, locate where the blower motor is, usually near the filter.. If you are capable,
reach in and try to turn the blower wheel. If does not
move, its possible the motor is bad.

If it is a multi-speed blower, change the heat spped to a different speed and see if the breaker trips, if it does then the indoor blower motor is probably bad

Need to span a LVL beam 14ft. with only 2x6 joists to carry and no other loads on a interior wall< so I can open up a wall


Hi Dave:
Cars & trucks section so you may not get many answers.
I'm a retired Building Inspector so have a general idea of what you are talking about.
There are several variables that come into consideration.....
- Supported joist length
- Load on those joists
- You'll find the required beam size in the appropriate tables.
Your local Building Inspector should be able to assist you.
Cheers

Ask your local building inspector. You will need planning permission if it is permanent and it will need to be to building code.

Furnace computer won't let furnace light


What is the model number? I have an SLP98 (installed on 11/29/2011).... and if I take the cover off the front of the furnace the panel that has the fancy "Lennox" badge on it) you will see two clear round windows about the size of a half dollar (one high on the furnace box and one lower on the blower box.) If you look downward into the window on the blower box you can see a red LED display that will sometimes flash error codes like E228 (one character at a time). If your model has something like this, let me know. I've done some DIY fixes recently out of necessity....and their easy.....and several technicians confessed they didn't know much, if anything, about the newer high effieciency Lennox gas furnaces.

Wire wont fit in new coleman breakers


Hi - I'm an electrican and would like to help.

If the wire you're trying to install on a circuit breaker doesn't fit - then something is wrong. Typically, circuits are designed around the amount of voltage and current a product requires. The voltage determines the combination of material & thickness of the insulation on the wire and the the amount of current (in amps) determines the size of the conductor or wire. The appropriate circuit protection (fuse or circuit breaker) is selected to protect the circuit from trying to deliver more current than the product requires (in the case of a fault, etc.) which would cause the wire to over heat and potentially cause a fire. So, if the product requires (for simplicity) 120 volts and 20 amps, a wire is selected with the proper insulation for 120 volts or more and conductor sized to carry no less than 20 amps. Aluminum and copper is expensive, so providing larger sizes than needed is a waste of resources and money. A #12 copper wire is suitable for this amount of amps. A circuit breaker rated for 20 amps is chosen. A 20 amp circuit breaker must be able to accept a wire capable of 20 amps - other wise it's not really a 20 amp circuit breaker. Most circuit breakers are designed to accept LARGER wires than needed - because often times circuits will need a wire that is one or two sizes larger due to the length of the circuit (how far the product is from the electrical panel).

If you're seeing a circuit breaker that will not accept the wire, the circuit breaker is probably the wrong size (and if you could force the wire in it - it would probably trip instantly when turned on) or someone has made a very expensive blunder when chosing the wire type and size for the circuit.

If the the latter is the case, simply connect a short length of the correct size wire to the oversized wire in an appropriate connector and secure to the circuit breaker terminal screw. otherwise, have a qualified person evaluate the situation. Be smart. Be safe.

Who made the the idea?


Hi,
Please check the currents draws and check your breaker size. If your furnace always trip off, check the system for malfunction. Normally manufacturer install the breaker with specific standard to protect your furnace from damaged

THERMOSTAT HAS NO POWER


Hi, yes the thermostat feed does come off the furnace from the transformer. That's where it gets it 24 volt supply, 120 volts is stepped down to 24 volts for the controls. If it trips the main breaker, it may be a matter of the wires that feed the breaker are loose and this will cause the breaker to over heat and trip. Shut it off and tighten the wires.The breaker may also be weak. This is a high voltage problem. So, anything that runs off of this breaker can cause it to trip, like the blower motor may be drawing to much amperage. Make sure there is no lint build up on the motor or in the windings or on the blower wheel also. My guess would be the breaker is burned or wires are loose creating enough heat to trip it at times. This is where you will need to start. Keep me posted. If you have a amprobe you can check the rated amps on the data plate of all motors and see what they are drawing under a load. If not, you will have to see whats getting hot, breaker, motors ect. Keep me updated as you will be able to find the problem. Like I said, my bet would be the breaker is going. You can also kill power and pull the breaker to look for any hot or burned spots on it. Concentrate there first.
Best of luck, you should find it quickly.

My son has condensate building up in his flue and running down into the furnace. It is a 2 stage furnace. The contractor who installed it blames it on the chimney. Is that likely?


It is for sure a venting issue, depending on where you are located, it sounds like the local building code inspector was not involved for an inspecton of the furnace replacement. When the flue condensates like that, it is usually because the flue is the wrong size, usually to big,or it is dumped directly into a masonary chimney, and the chimney was not lined to the top.
I hope this answers your questions, please rate me and let me know if I can help further.
Sicerely,

The bearings are bad. You need to replace the motor. Motor cost $75 to $125. Labor is on avg. $150 to $400 with an decent A/C Company . You can try to oil it but its not recommend by Lennox. That furnace at the time they build it was top of the line. Good Luck.
