Furnace Blower stops working after 15 minutes

We have a WeatherKing GU-80G-D3 unit. When the unit turns on, everything works fine for about 15 minutes and then the airflow stops throughout the house. This is true for A/C and for heating. Started doing this in September with A/C and we haven't needed heat until recently.

When the unit does start up, I can hear a humming that lasts a long time before the air starts blowing. It sounds like the blower fan is having a hard time getting started. I am assuming our blower fan is having a problem but wondering if replacement is necessary or taking the blower out and cleaning it would solve.

Any help would be appreciated.

Replace the blower motor. Cleaning of the blower and motor will help in the moving of more air but will NOT eliminate the real problem in the motor bearings. Over time the lubrication will dry out and bearing wear results.

My weatherking acclaim furnace was working well, but started blowing cold air and would not shut off. I shut it off via fuse box and waited 15 min. and tried it...now it starts blowing cold air right


Usually when there is a problem with a unit in the heating mode it default to the blower running. Could be one of the limit switches need to be reset - or it could be some other issue related to the heating circuit.

You probably need to get someone to check it out.

  1. The sensor that tells the furnace whether the gas is lit has got build-up on it and is giving the furnace bad information.
  2. The flame sensor is often a single wire or rod that sticks up in the center of the flame.
  3. You can shut off the furnace and the gas and clean the sensor with some sandpaper.
If that still doesn't work, the sensor may need to be replaced.

Please rate this solution.

Rheem gas furnace pilot lights, but no burners or fan


If the burners do not fully ignite, the sensor will shut the furnace down. The lack of sufficient burner flame is a gas valve or gas pressure problem within the valve.
Replacing the gas valve with the original one may get you going. I surely suggest a professional service company for safety reasons and a thorough inspection. A 20 year old furnace is past it's normal life span.
