    I replaced the purge fan and motor assembly yesterday.

    What I requested and still need is a MANUAL for the unit or PICTORIAL of the inside of the big green box behind the house. Can anyone steer me toward that info?

    BTW, the unit is eighteen years old, so may have lube ports for the blower.motor. However, I am seeking the manual/pictorial so as to avoid the necessity of removing all the cover panels of the unit to find the location of the blower and motor. I want to know if the blower is in an accessible location. How much material/components must be removed to gain access to it? If I must contiue with out a manual, eventually, I will not need one.

    Thank you HVAC guy. That is helpful. I was concerned lest the blower assembly be mounted in some inaccessible place. Thanks for the Noland idea too. Ya.

If the purge fan wont start on its own see if there is a capactor attached. if not replace it. more than likely you cannot lube the bearings in your blower motor. the new fans are not serviceable.

    to gain access to the blower you will need to remove the top  panel of the unit on the side where the burners are. the blower and squirrel cage will pull straight up through the top once you remove a couple of screws and wires. it will look something like the above picture. if there are lube points you will see them on the motor. as far as the pictorial is concerned try calling a local noland warehouse near you and ask them if they have any manuals you can photocopy.

New to wood furnace. Does the blower kick on automatically


Not sure what brand or model you have, but usually the fan wont come on until it heats up enough to close the fan switch which powers the blower

I have a Rheem Classic Super Quiet 80 gas furnace (for heat). The fan stops when the "heat" turns on.


Any time I ever had trouble,first thing to suspect is the thermostat.
They lose contact sometimes and sometimes you tap the face and they work til next glitch.
If the thermostat has some years on it,go ahead and replace it.
Can't you just leave the heat and fan in auto? That would be best,I think. don-ohio

My Coleman furnace 4322/729 model lights the pilot but won't cut in . What could be problem ? Cleared lines Complete


Gas valve not opening? Does it have the exhaust blower that pulls vacuum switch allowing burner to light?
(1) Thermostat not working? Has to complete the circuit in or gas valve to open.
(2)Can be a stuck or bad gas valve. Try tapping the side of the gas valve body while thermostat is calling for heat. Tapping,not pounding. Like lightly,yannow? don-ohio (:^)

Cannot get gas to flow to pilot flame with main valve parallel to gas pipe. Is there something I must push to make gas flow to the pilot flame pipe?


you said, in effect: Cannot get gas to light the pilot flame even though manual supply valve is open. Is there something I must push to light [ignite] the pilot? Permalink
The gas supply valve is open, and the pilot gas cutoff valve is open but [it seems like] gas will not flow to the pilot flame because it will not light when I supply a match or lighter flame. I remember there is a button or something I need to press...but where it it? I cannot find it.

A/c fan not working=thermostat is working(central a/c system)a/c


The fan on the outside unit is powered from it's 240 volt source. Check that the breaker for the outside unit is not tripped. Also, a contactor is inside the outer unit that starts the fan - it may be faulty.
