Be sure the fan setting on the stat is set for auto, not on. in this mode the fan should only run when there is a call for cool or heat.if the fan continues to run check at the control board to see if you are getting 24 volts low voltage between green and common. if you are then the stat is bad. if youaren't then your electric control board is possibly bad. a lot of gas furnaces fall into a failsafe mode when a sensor or function fails and the blowers stay on 24 7. you may well have several problems from what you are saying. if you turn everthing off and start a new cycle for heat the first thing that should fire up is the induced draft motor , then the ignotor, then the gas valve. you can check each item with a meter , generally 120 volts to the induced draft motor, then 120 volts to the ignitior, the 24 volts to the gas valve. then ignition and 120 volts to the motor. most furnaces have a heat terminal and a cool terminal on the board. common to heat should get 120 volts on a call for heat after the sequence of operationb has taken place. 120 volts should be sent to cool terminal on a call for cool. a continueous blower is a sign of a failed safety. perhaps the motor failed and the safety opened and the motor was replaced but the safety never reset?. look at all the little micro temp sensors around the burner. they are like little breakers and need to be pushed in to reset . usually like a little stem that pops out from a metal or plastic dic. some are size of a quarter, some the size of a dime.

Ugg's-075auer blower won't turn on in heat mode. Replaced thermostat and control board. Checked sensors all good. Heater runs fine with fan switch set to on. Want could be the problem?


you need to configure the tstat for electric heat rather than gas. many times it's a switch on the back of the tstat, possibly in the settings menu. what's the tstat?

Payne gas fired forced air furnaces,model 394gad, replaced transformer was shorted out,and blower motor , started throwing sparks,also the capacitor was five bucks.


for somebody to jump the fuse it tells me there is a low voltage wiring problem. likely have a bad tstat wire somewhere. blower not turning on in auto usually means you have a G wire hooked up to the tstat and the tstat is set for gas heat, needs to be set to electric heat when G wire in place. there's a good start, NEW TSTAT WIRE and proper settings

Coleman Evcon furnace blower runs w/ no call for heat. Temp is 5+ degrees above thermostat setting. (Programmable tstat)


When you say door are you referring to the front door or the furnace door? If the unit kicks on AND off by itself I would say it's in the tstat or the tstat wire. If it were internal I would think the blower relay or heat contactor/relay were getting stuck AND THE FAN WOULD NOT TURN OFF until you flipped the breaker. Good luck

Have an older Coleman mobile home furnace (Mdl 8665D766). Both blower fan and booster motor work fine; however, during heating, booster motor will keep constantly running after system cycles through


The booster motor? Do you mean the inducer motor that helps push the exhaust? If the inducer motor won't shut off when the thermostat is satisfied and everything else does shut off, it sounds like the contacts on the relay that powers the inducer are at fault

I have a goodman modle gms80703ana and at first the inducer fan would kick on in it's normal cycle then the furnace would shut off do to a pressure switch. Now the inducer fan only come on perodicaly...


First unplug your furnace to reset it then plug it back in with thermostat set to heat high enough to make the heat come on. As soon as the inducer motor came on you JUMP the 2 wires that go to pressure switch. Your igniter should come on and gas valve should open for heat. If the flame stay on the blower should come on after a few minutes. If it get to this point your problem could be pressure switch itself or inducer clogged.

Replaced Thermostat and now Blower Motor will not run


Sounds like a set up issue on the tstat. You say this is a packaged unit, inside the machine you should find where the tstat wires hook up. Typically red is power yellow is compressor orange is reversing valve white is emergency heat green is blower. Put red and green together, test blower. Then red green and yellow, make sure blower works again. If blower runs both ways it's either the tstat wire or tstat itself. Make sure you are landing wires on dedicated heat pump terminals, make sure in settings you are set up for heat pump with back up electric heat and TSTAT CONTROLS THE FAN. Good Luck. Also if there is a switch on the tstat for gas or electric on the back you want electric.

Tempstar DC90 willnot shut off


I can't stand the tempstar smart valve! Now I'm not sure what a dc90, but if you have a gas fire residential furnace I know what it is. The smart valve controls gas and flame proving only. The blower issue is probably one of the high temp safeties that has stuck. During a call for heat, your system verifies that all safeties are closed. If this sequence is not correct, then the unit assumes that the unit has overheated due to a high temperature safety issue, and brings the blower on to cool it down, normally for 90secs. Also if the unit is calling for heat when the power is turned off, still calling for heat when power is turned back on(like you said by throwing the switch), this will also bring the blower on for 90sec, then blower will/should turn off, and the heat cycle will start. So if your tstat is calling for heat(heat on and set temp higher than accrual temp), and you turn off power then turn power(main voltage) back on, this will bring blower on for 90secs. Now, the burners staying on is a different issue. I've not seen that in 15 yrs of service on a smart valve. There is probably 24volts feeding the "W" circuit, for some reason. On the control board there is a terminal block with R W G Y C. The W is your heat. This W receives a 24v signal from your tstat. Turn off power, remove W from the board, then turn power back on. If no heat then you've isolated your problem to the control wire coming from your tstat, or the tstat itself. If it continues to heat with W disconnected then its something in the furnace, circuit board? Hope this helps!

Draft Inducer problem


On the call for heat from the thermostat the inducer should come on first, a pressure switch proves that the inducer is moving enough air up the stack, closes and energizes the ignition and burners come on. 30 to 60 seconds later the blower comes on. Everything should stay on as long as the thermostat is still calling for heat. When the thermostat is satisfied the burner and inducer shut off and the fan will run to remove the heat from the heat exchanger and then shut off. Cycle complete. Some inducers have a post purge so when the thermostat is satisfied the burner shuts off, the inducer runs for 30 seconds or so and then shuts off. I am thinking that your furnace may be running on the limit switch and when the burner is off but the inducer stays on, maybe the limit is shutting of the inducer. Check your air filter and make sure all your heat registers are open and that the return air grill is not blocked.

Heat not coming on carrier gas pack code 31


code 31 indicates pressure switch did not close or reopened during the heat cycle....1st thing to check is the inducer motor,,this is a small motor that turns a small blower wheel that draws the exhaust gases through the furnace and blows them into the vent pipe....1st locate the inducer assembly,,most easily identified by the small plastic fan blade that cools the inducer motor as it runs..1st turn off tstat and turn off furnace power switch..then turn on furnace switch,then set tstat to heat,set the temp above room temp by 5 degrees...remove the furnace front cover,locate the inducer motor,,if it isnt turning,but is warm or hot after a minute or so,likely the inducer motor is bad..if it isnt turning and isnt warm after 1 minute,then likely the main control board is bad,,not turning the inducer motor when it should,,,,,if the inducer motor is running,,then the pressure switch isnt closing,, could be a bad pressure switch but more likely there is a problem with the venting...some possible problems that would cause the pressure switch not to close in an 80% eff furnace [metal vent pipe] are: [1] a blockage in the vent pipe,base of chimney,dead bird at the furnace where vent connects to furnace or down inside the inducer assy,accessed by removing vent pipe from furnace....if all clear the chimney could be blocked up inside,,is the draft good when vent is removed from base of chimney?..if furnace is a 90%+ type [pvc plastic vent pipe],,then check the intake pipe at the furnace by removing it where it attaches to top of furnace..is the intake clogged with anything?..then check the intake and exhaust pipes outside for blockages,,including ice/frost/snow at the exhaust pipe outlet..

Inducer and ibm turns on and stays on no heat or cooling


Check to make sure you have 24-28 volts between R and C. If you do, you probably have a bad board but you also need to verify that you have the same voltage between W and C on a heat call if not then it could be something in the tstat ot he wires (jumping R and W pretty much rules this out).
The Kill switch may not reset the board, kill the power to the furnace itself.
Was the problem there before the new tstat was installed?
Also on some models continuous blower is initiated by a "kicked" roll out switch or and overtemp condition, Check for continuity on the whole safety circuit.
