Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

The blower on my furnace doesn't stop running.

I can turn the power off at the furnace and then restart it and it will run a cycle again.... but if i don't go up and turn the power off from the furnace it will not turn the burners back on for another heat cycle.. i have been told it is the limit switch and i would like to know how it should test if it is good with a volt ohm meter.. when it is cool it still reads closed... does that mean it needs replaced?
thank you

Probably need to replace the limit. Pull the wires off of the limit and set your meter to ohms. If it beeps while holding one test lead on each of the connectors on the limit itself then it should be good. If no beep it may be stuck, still too hot, or bad part. Try to give it a whack with something solid like the end of a screwdriver sometimes this will release a stuck limit. If you get it to fire up and heat again make sure your blower comes on and your filter is cleaned. You need to check the temperature rise on your furnace afterwards. Limits dont trip for no reason usually.

Furnace won't stay lit. Intertherm Model M2RC-080A-16BN. Ignightor glows, flame starts and after a few seconds the flame shuts off. Then it starts the cycle again. It goes thru this cycle a fe


It sounds like the flame sensor is bad. If thats not the case you may need to replace the control board. You should make sure the flame sensor is directly into the flame.

Open limit switch code


Take the Filter out of your furnace and try it again, some times the filter restricts the air flow to much going back to the furnace and it gets to hot and the switch opens. Also check that there is nothing blocking the return vents, like clothes, shoes or the ducts are very dirty but i don't think that's a problem. If the filter is a problem, put one of those spun fiber filters in, the kind you can see through they are blue or green. they are cheap maybe a $1.00 - $2.00
Hope this helps

Furnace is a Rudd UGEB model. Burners ignite and but the blower (squirrel cage) doesn't start. After a couple minutes they turn off and the blower starts and runs for less than a minute and shuts off....


Sounds like the fan limit was not replaced correctly. You can try switching the blower to the On position (instead of Auto), if the furnace runs properly with the blower on that would be the most likely culprit.

How can i wire in an auxilary fan to run with the furnace blower


Hi, if the fan doesn't draw too much power, there is no problem wiring it in parallel. I'm assuming it runs on the same voltage as the blower. If not, or if the fan requires a lot of power, you can wire in a relay to run the fan. If you provide details on the furnace and the fan I can be more specific.

Carrier Weathermaker SXI Model 58SX8100LG Code 12


Code 12 I believe is power up after power off and a call for heat from the the thermostat. If you have a weak door switch that may be vibrating and going on and off it would cause this as would any thing that causes the power to drop low or out then reapply its self. try holding the door switch in while watching the board and after 2 or 3 minutes the furnace should go on to lite and the blower cycle off. If it stays in this mode try turning the thermostat off (heat - OFF -cool) and then push in the door switch nothing should happen except the lite on the board come on and stay on. If it does this than have someone turn the thermostat to heat and see if it starts or put the door on and set the heat and see if *** goes through the normal cycle of heating. If however it goes right back into the blower mode and shows the 12 code your problem is still with you. So next remove the wire on the "W" terminal on the board. Retry power to the door switch and now nothing should be on except the red lite. If it tries to start the 12 code and blower up again Im pretty sure you have a bad ignition/blower control board.

Carrier Furnace wouldn't light, fan was running all the time.


Most furnaces have a photo cell if it gets dirty the photo cell does not see a flame so it trips the reset button on flame failure.

Carrier XHD183D Through-the-Wall Heater/AC runs constantly


YOU COULD EITHER HAVE A THERMOSTAT PROBLEM OR FAN CONTROL PROBLEM.TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE FURNACE AND TAKE THE THERMOSTAT OFF THE WALL.MAKE SURE YOU MARK THE WIRES SO YOU KNOW HOW TO HOOK IT BACK UP AGAIN.RESTORE POWER TO THE FURNACE.TOUCH THE WIRES THAT WERE HOOKED TO THE R & G TERMINALS ON THE T-STAT TOGETHER AND HOLD THEM THERE.OBSERVE THE OPERATION. WHEN YOU TAKE THEM APART DOES THE BLOWER STOP?TRY IT A FEW TIMES. IF IT CONTINUES TO START AND STOP YOU GOT A BAD T-STAT.JEFF
