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.

I have a CCA24FCC that keeps shutting the furnace off for lack of air flow. The blower seems o be working well, i have replaced the filter even when it appears to be clean. Is there a sensor that measures...


There are 2 blowers to be concerned with. The main blower simply passes the household air over the heat exchanger to provide warm air for the supply vents. The other blower, which is more important, is the draft inducer blower. This is a smaller blower that starts first to create a negative pressure in the fire box to ensure that carbon monoxide gases will pass up the flue when the gas jets ignite. There is a pressure switch associated with this blower. When the inducer blower starts, it pulls air up thru the flue until the pressure switch activates. Then the gas jets can ignite, warming the heat exchanger. A few seconds later, the main blower will start to warm the air. If the inducer blower or the pressure switch is faulty, the furnace will not fire up.

It worked fine in AC mode but when we tried to turn on the heat it wont heat


wow what a question. Is it gas, electric, heat pump, oil fired? Is it in your basement, trailer closet, or on the roof? How old is it? If you did seasonal maintenance like changing the filter in the blower compartment you may have left the blower door loose. If it has been made in the last 20 years the draft inducer may not want to begin spinning after sitting all summer. If its older maybe the pilot light is out and a thermocouple needs to be replaced. Its the best I can do without more information. Hope this helps, good luck.

Blower motor never cycles off when in AC mode, even when the desired temp is reached


Not sure if you ever figured it out. Or if someone figured it out for you. Shows no one answered you on here. So I thought I would ask you a question plus also say what I thought it was . When the unit and or the thermostat was replaced? Was the thermostat wire that is inbetween the unit and the blower ever replaced? A service tech should have checked if the tstat wires were touching or shorted together. If you go by color which you should never do. Red is usually 24 volts or power, green is fan, yellow is cooling, white is heat, orange is the reversing valve if its a heat pump, orange to O terminal if RV in cooling or orange to B terminal if RV in heat. O or B terminal depends on who the manufacturer of the unit is. Blue wire is usually the common. you should always check to see how it is wired at the board or relay in the unit. not everyone wires it by the colors. If your fans low voltage wires are touching the low voltage 24 volt power wires in the unit or if the wires are shorted or touching in the wire sleeve or at the thermostat. the blower motor will never shut off. Or if the blower motor is wired directly to line voltage it will never shut off and testing the low voltage wire wont matter.

Your question was from last summer. So I am assuming you had someone figure it out by now. If not then check my suggestions. Hope that helps you.

Fan will not shut off my rheem 80 plus


Hello, If you are referring to the blower motor not shutting off at the thermostat than the relay on the integrated control board is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. Unfortunately just the relay can;t be replaced and the whole board must be replaced. If you are referring to the inducer motor ( the motor that comes on first) than the pressure switch is open and must be checked out for either a a obstruction in the flue pipe, water or obstruction in the small hose going from inducer to pressure switch, or the switch itself is bad. Let me know if you have any further questions i will be glad to assist you.

Trying to determine whether I have a bad Ign/Lockout or inducer relay board on Mod 58SXA080-GG. If I shut off heat at t-stat or unplug ign mod. for 10 min. It will usually intiate a heat cycle but I only...


The inducer blower will put a vacuum on your pressure switch which in turn will tell the board to apply power to the ignitor. If you have a vent blockage, dirty air filter, plugged condensate line or any blockage of either vent or air intake, the furnace will lock-out and flash an error code on the circuit board. If after inspecting all the above for debris and found nothing, you can quickly jump the pressure switch after the inducer starts to see if the ignitor glows. You could also have a bad ignitor. Yes the lock-out is normal. Looks like you discovered the cause on your own, order a new switch.

Reversing valve wire kills either heat or AC


Your solution is throw that Hunter tsat away and get a good one. You need one with 2 stage heat 1 stage cool heat pump tstat. Heat pump tsta has w,y,o,g,w,rnad w2. Don,t buy one without this one it. I have been in this business 45 years and people are always getting sold the wrong tstat at Lowe or Home Depot. Those guys dont know jack about Tstats. Keep in touch Rus GOOD LUCK. Get the right tstat follow the letter on wiring and you wont have any problem.

Weathermaker 8000 furnance flashing code 31 blower comes on for 90 sec .. then shuts off .. then other fan goes on.. don't see any flames or lighting goin on can you help?


31 PRESSURE SWITCH DID NOT CLOSE OR REOPENED - If open longer than five minutes,
inducer shuts off for 15 minutes before retry. Check for: - Excessive wind
- Proper vent sizing - Defective inducer motor
- Low inducer voltage (115VAC) - Defective pressure switch
- Inadequate combustion air supply - Disconnected or obstructed pressure tubing
- Low inlet gas pressure (if LGPS used) - Restricted vent
If it opens during blower on-delay period, blower will come on for the selected blower
off-delay.

Lennox furnace not heating up


sounds like the ignitor is bad. there shoule be a 2 wire plug going to it. after the inducer motor starts, you can check the voltage at the 2 wire plug located under the burners. you can unpug it to check voltage or you can probe the back side of the plug with a volt meter. if you are getting 120v but it is not glowing, it is bad. you can also ohm it out while it is off.

Have a coleman evcon furnace model DGATO56BDD. blink code flashes 3 times with no diagram to know what the problem is. the furnace blows cool are instead of warm.


Your centrifical swith is stuck open on your blend motor. I found that removing the blend motor housing and spinning the stuck motor (from setting over the summer) will get you out of a bind ,.but you may end up needing this centrifical switch (locatedon the bottom of the blend/fresh air intake) motor replaced.

There are 4 -steps for full run time to kick in a furnace.. step-1, inducer fan runs & prove thru the air tube which closes a switch and tell the circuit board to go to step-2, the igniter lights the pilot & prove its lit by heating the thermocouple, which tells the circuit board to go to step-3, opens the gas valve to dump gas in, which will light from the pilot light, and prove by a flame sensor metal stick on the last burner , which heats up and tell the circuit board Saying, ok , I've got flame.. step-4. when the box heats up, it closes a switch and turn on the main fan...! (Some gas-valves has a brain -or circuit board on top of them and are real sensetive to moisture..)
