Room temp is not where it should be before furnace shuts down

I have a Fridgidaire furnace, energy efficient, just installed, everything works but the room won't get up to temp before shutting down. It then does a purge cycle then after about five minutes the furnace turns back on blowing hot air

Did the installer check the amperage at your thermostat and then adjust the heat anticipator? Or you may need to have the blower time settings changed to suite your needs. Get them back in to check.

Pilot and burner light then gas shut off model 7900


How many degrees before it reaches desired temp, does it shut off? A thermostat is designed to shut the furnace off a couple/ few degrees before it reaches set temp. It has what is called a heat anticipater, which shuts the burner down, and lets the blower use the remaining heat from the heat exchanger to bring it up to desired temp making it more efficient. If it is more than a few degrees, replace the thermostat. You can jump out the red and white wires to confirm the faulty thermostat. If by doing this, the furnace never shuts down, until you separate the red and white wires. That confirms a faulty thermostat. Hope this helps someone.

What size oil furnace is needed for 1200 square feet?


75000 to 85000 btu Or British thermal pound.
Two units of measure are important in sizing an oil furnace. The first is the British Thermal Unit or BTU, which represents the energy needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit at normal atmospheric pressure. The input capacity of an oil furnace is often stated using this unit of measure. The second number is the fuel efficiency rating, which is expressed as a percentage. This represents the amount of energy that gets converted to heat, with higher numbers being better. To determine the energy output in BTUs per hour, multiply the input BTU by the efficiency rating. For example, a furnace with 100,000 BTU of input and an efficiency rating of 89 produces 89,000 BTUs of output. One with an efficiency rating of 80 and the same input amount, produces only 80,000 BTUs of output.

I have a Goodman A/C unit model number AWUF36106BA and serial number 1010684384. It keeps shutting off on us and we have had a repair man come out and said the problem we had is the emergency shut off...


If the drip pan switch is shutting the unit down , this means you have a condensate drain issue. Be careful about wiring around any safety switch, especially if the furnace is in the attic or on a second floor. You could have water dripping on the ceiling. The drip pan switch is a safety switch. The best thing to do would be to inspect the furnace. The pan is underneath it. Look inside the pan if you can. If it is full of water, use a shop vac and vac the water out of the pan. If there is no water, you can locate the safety switch, take the two wires loose from it and just wire them together. Caution: This will be wiring around the condensate safety switch that could cause water to leak on the ceiling or floor depending where the furnace is. Don't go too long without getting someone out to clean the condensate drain out.

The furnace is 10yrs old in a house of the same age. We added on a new 20 X 20 bedroom 3 years ago. Since then the furnace stops when the temp gets below zero which is usually at night. The next day...


Thanks for the information you gave, however you did not tell us the make or model of the furnace. Try removing the air intake and use room air for combustion. Plug the pipe leading to the outside so no cold air enters the home. If the system runs flawlessly, you have an issue of moisture being sucked in the intake and freezing. If you can whitness this, there should be an error code that will blink on the circuit board. Most newer furnaces can vent up to 50 feet or so depending on model. If you post again, let us know what brand you have so we can help you more.

Good luck!

Do rinnai heaters run efficiently if turned up and down often?


Maintaining the lowest acceptable setting and leaving it at that temperature is the most economical way to run the unit. If the space is going to be unoccupied for an extended time (several hours), lower temperatures are okay. This minimizes the need to burst the heat to warm the space quicker. As I understand your unit, it minimizes electrical & gas consumption by basing the need on the temperature difference of actual space temperature and setpoint. The larger the gap, the more power and gas is consumed.
In summary, when the space is occupied, maintain a consistent temperature setting. When the space is unoccupied, maintain a lower setpoint.

Hope this helps. Good Luck. :-)

Air conditioner will not turn off, thermostat keeps showing temp inside getting higher, cool air is coming out of vents


Is there a heat source close to the thermostat, plug in transformer for a phone mabey, table lamp? If not then you have to have a bad thermostat. Any possible heat source from inside the wall? Will it shut off if you turn the system off? Turning power off to the furnace will shut everything down. If no heat source is driving up the indicated room temp, replace t'stat.

Furnace burner turns off and on


The furnace is likely over heating and the high temp. safety is shutting it down. It then cools and starts again. Things to check: Filter, Blower wheel and indoor A/C coil. If any or all are dirty you are limiting air flow and need to clean them.
