Thermostat wont turn on heater Robert Shaw 9600 prog.

I had this trouble 2 years ago. . . . Air, blower work fine, when I turn on "Heat" it clicks a couple of quick times and wont start up the furnace. The system is only 5 years old .( i believe it was installed in july of 2004 , furnace, a/c lennox)
I've replace batteries and "reset" several time thinking the batteries were too low to start it up.
The thermostat was replace 2 years ago and now its doing it again. Any suggestions other than having to get them back out here would be helpful. Thank you .

    I had issues determining what color the "common" wire was. I have a red, white, yellow and green. Between the white and red i get .10-.70 volts - between the yellow or green and red I get 28 volts.

    So does this mean I need better batteries - the instructions say "energizer" - but if this is the case - does it mean it is not my furnace?

    I can hear the unit buzzing atop the roof. But inside to air blows unless I turn the "fan" position to "on". - Then of course no heat comes out.

    Hi
    Please I don't speak English too much, but I have a problem with my heater at home, the unit is at the top of roof.
    My heater was working good in automatic position, in this moment from 2 days isn't working. If I connect aircondition work good, if I connect fan is working good too, but when I change to heater then don't work.
    Right now my home have 32 degrees.
    I don't know anything in this problem, maybe is the thermostate, some friends they say the problem is in the light to fire the gas at the roof.
    Ones again escuseme my English, but I can read more, I'm in Las Vegas Nevada.
    Thanks everybody.
    Tom

I have a thermostat 9600 Robertshaw and I have to use the trip switch to start my furnace. Then it reaches the temperature and sometimes it will kick in by itself but majority of the time I have to trip it. I have changed the batteries cleaned the thermostat,and reset it. Is it time for a new thermostat and can I replace it myself. Thanks

Look under the cover where you change the batteries. find the common and the white wire. if you have it in heat and there is 24 volts batween w and common, then the stat is good and the problem lies in the furnace. checking in the furnace the power should arrive at the furnace control board or the common and white as 24 volts also. first to start is the forced draft motor, 120 volts. next the glow bar , 120 volts or ignitor arcs and then gas burner lights and heats up then the blower runs . whatever item fails to perform is your problem . check with meter where possible and if power goes in and item doesn't perform thats your problem. when the forced draft motor runs it closes a pressure switch usually to the upper right and then the board knows it can proceed to power glow bar or ignitor and light burner then open the gas valve for ignition. good luck

I have a older Carrier heat pump, model 38YKC060. Does anyone know how cold it will continue to work at?


Heat pumps are of little or no value at temps around 40 degrees or below. And if you use the strips it will cost a small fortune if you have relatively high electric rates as most folks do.

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 (:^)

My thermostat is set on 68 degrees and it shows room temperature is 68, but the furnace still kickson, Honeywell said it has a 1 degree difference. so what's the problem then?


Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

Is it cost effective to replace draft inducer blower on 22 year old furnace?


Depends on the cost to repair. Probably a 22 year old furnace is not very efficient also. Take every thing into consideration.
If it still works it may work for a while but you don't want a break down in the middle of winter.

My termost set to a/c, the fan auto, blow very well, but when I switch to heat and the fan auto, doesn't work, but if I put fan on work why?


the thermostat says to call for heat buildup in the work if its not cold enough the thermostat won't call for heat and I won't go on but when it gets cold and the thermostat set to the temperature you want or hire someone that doesn't cycle

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

I have a Coleman Evcon electric furnace, the blower fan runs constantly and I have to shut the breaker off inside the front cover to turn it off. The switch is on auto and it runs even when the thermostat...


It could be a thermostat problem. Also it will seem to run constantly as it tries to heat and one of the elements are working which could be a sequencer problem.
