Question about Heating & Cooling

My Lennox Furnace starts and stops.

It starts for about 2 seconds, then starts again for about 2 seconds, then shuts off. After about the 3rd time it tries to start, the furnace makes a thump sound and blower kicks in and runs for about 15-20 seconds and then completely stops.

First let me thank all the pros that take the time to answer our questions. My wife thinks I'm a genious. I had the same problem up to 30 minutes ago and fixed it from a solution found on a different webpage. There's sensor sticking up where the flames come out with a single wire coming from it. Remove the sensor and scrub it with steel wool. Replace it and get your hummer from the old lady because you just saved her a few hundred bucks.

    Just don't confuse the sensor to the igniter, which is also in the way of the flames but has 2 wires.

The reason why it stops and starts is that the sensor within the burner can not sense a flame in the furnace. The parts need to checked is the fuel filter, Air in the line, burnt out arcing rods or a bad ac high voltage transformer.

We have royal red furnace to heat our home.The fan dose not stop.


Details.......does the furnace function normally otherwise? Might just be a stuck fan switch. Make sure the thermostat hasn't been set on Fan ON setting or summer air circ. on older furnaces.
Find the fan switch and tap it and see if fan quits. If it does,fan switch is bad.probably. Always make sure your air circ. filter(return air to furnace) is replaced every 3 mo. or so,too. don-ohio (:^)

My oil furnance is running but when it reches temperature it shuts off and will not come back on until we bleed the lines


You have a small leak on the suction side of the pump between the tank and the pump. when this happens the pump looses prime each time the furnace shuts down and when the furnace tries to fire up again the saftey device trips before the oil gets to the burner.

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

Is it cost effective to replace draft inducer blower on 22 year old furnace?


Depends on the cost to repair. Probably a 22 year old furnace is not very efficient also. Take every thing into consideration.
If it still works it may work for a while but you don't want a break down in the middle of winter.

I have a Coleman Evcon electric furnace, the blower fan runs constantly and I have to shut the breaker off inside the front cover to turn it off. The switch is on auto and it runs even when the thermostat...


It could be a thermostat problem. Also it will seem to run constantly as it tries to heat and one of the elements are working which could be a sequencer problem.
