Coleman furnace fan keeps turning off and on every 10 seconds...

Coleman Furnace Model 7680B Series 856
Sometimes this furnace runs perfectly, but about once a day the fan seems to get stuck or something and it keeps going on and off every 5 to 10 seconds---when it does this there is no fire in the box, just the pilot light is on. I have to turn ithe furnace off for about 30 minutes and then it will run okay for about six hours or until it does it again. Any ideas? It has 3 limit switches that I am aware of.

    Mine does the same thing after every heat cycle. About 15 seconds after the heat shutd off, the fan starts and goes off/on off/on maybe 29 times before shutting off.

    When heater is turned on, the fan periodically starts going on and off, on and off, on and off.....until it starts driving me a bit crazy. Then I go to the thermostat and turn if off (push lever all the way to the left) and it still takes several minutes to stop going on and off, on and off, on and off.......The gas regulator was replaced last year and okayed by the gas company. He also checked the thermostat and said it was working fine.

Clean your heat/flame sensor with sand paper or steal wool. If the sensor is dirty, it won't detect the heat from the flame and it shuts the gas off. Clean the soot and junk off the sensor and it should work fine. I have to clean mine every year. After spending hundreds of $$ every yr on tech calls..I figured out the problem and in 30 sec I'm up and running again.

We have a Coleman Electric Furnace Serial # AOL6042086, Model # AHP36C3XH21A and the fan runs constantly, will not shut off. We have replaced the thermostat and just replaced the control board. We h


I wish I was a furnace expert but I will give a push in the right direction. When a gas/electric fan runs it has two speeds. When you turn on the FAN ON switch it should run at the slower speed. If it doesn't turn on or turn off again when you turn it back you have a wiring problem or a thermostat problem. Make sure the thermostat is compatible with your unit and wired properly (on both ends). The other time the fan runs is "in session" when heat or cooling is applied to the system. It should run until the system finishes the cycle then a bit more (30 seconds or 1 minute) to blow the treated air completely through the ducts. If it doesn't stop then you may have a bad fan time delay or relay. Check parts for your model and various appliance repair site online.

I have a coleman model 7680B series 856 with a pilot light that won't stay lit


You need a themocouple, it's a cheap $10.00 part you can get at any hardware store, you have a standing pilot light furnace like mine, if your handy and safe you can put one in easy, youtube is loaded with videos on how to do it. These other answers are wrong for your unit.

Draft fan keeps on running after furnace shuts


That sounds pretty normal for most furnace/heater products. They run the heating element with fan for a cycle then after the heater reaches temperature it will shut off and the fan will continue to run to cool the element and to circulate the heat that it produced. If you want the manual for this product it looks like you can get it here: http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/ex/product/headline/m/Coleman%2BEvcon/d/furnace/p/DGATO75BDC

There is a fan cycle switch that turns on the fan when the unit heats up (so it won't be blowing cold air) and runs the fan after the unit has shut off to remove heat from the unit. Sounds like it bit the dust. It is located next to the firebox.
