Question about Honeywell Electronic Programmable Heat/Cool Thermostat - CT3300A100 Heater
It is a honeywell furn the fans run nonstop no matter what the stat says. its a spark ignitor not getting a spark gas valve does not click on so its not getting any gas. the fan runs off the heating terminal on the board. even when in cooling mode the heat term is running 125 v and cooling term for fan has nothing. i shut if off form the kill switch let it reset for two min and nothing dif. im guessing the bord is shot or could it just be the fan relay? if you need anymore info plz let me know.
Check to make sure you have 24-28 volts between R and C. If you do, you probably have a bad board but you also need to verify that you have the same voltage between W and C on a heat call if not then it could be something in the tstat ot he wires (jumping R and W pretty much rules this out).
The Kill switch may not reset the board, kill the power to the furnace itself.
Was the problem there before the new tstat was installed?
Also on some models continuous blower is initiated by a "kicked" roll out switch or and overtemp condition, Check for continuity on the whole safety circuit.

Ok so here is a sequence of the heater lighting and the solution for your problem...
1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks.Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. Please see "limits, rollout switches & furnace control boards" further down on this page. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor. If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning. Please see the pictures below to help you identify a flame sensor.
Thanks and I hope this helps. Feedback apprec.
