    Do you have an LED light on the board? what isthe code?

    cound the blink sequence, look on the diagram for the code.



    It might be a rollout switch problem, or temp limit switch.

    Are the filters clean?

Knowing the sequence of operation on your gas furnace may help you diagnose your condition.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the ignitor. The ignitor will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the ignitor gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the ignitor does not energize (bad control, bad ignitor), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not lite (dirty pilot), the burner does not lite (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

Most newer furnaces will have a diagnostic center or control built into the control module. You may be able to view it as it is running thru a small viewing port. Some models will require the removal of an access panel prior to finding it. On the reverse of the access panel, there will be a diagnostic chart that will aide you in understanding any error code recorded (usually a blinking light).

This is why we technicians earn the big bucks!

Furnace in mobile home has a few problems


Sounds like fan & limit control
If temp on limit reaches max temp what happens gas valve deenergized,as MTR continues to run begins to lower temp. Thus reenergizing valve
Check filters,MTR speed for heating

Heat pump only runs for a few min in heat mode, then switches to cool and will not produce warm air until the system is turned off and back on.


Hi,
The defrost sensor or timer is bad. When the heat pump runs in heating mode the outdoor coil gets very cold and needs to defrost every four hours or so. When it does this it goes into cooling and turns on the auxiarlly heat.
The unit will have to be checked to see if the timer is just going right into defrost mode or if the sensor is telling it to go into defrost mode.
It probably would not be a bad idea to just replace the both pieces since they work in conjunction with each other.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Motor continuse to run after heat is off, blowing cold air about 1 to 2 min


Flame goes off before fan, thats the way the intaller set it up, and the way I would do it too.

Gas heater doesn't stay on longer than 5 minutes.


It sounds to me that your air flow is restricted somewhere. The first thing to check is your air filter. If that gets real dirty your restricted air flow will cause the hi-limit(hi temperature limit switch) in your heat exchanger compartment to over heat and open up your gas valve electrical circuit,thus, shutting off the gas to your burners. After the hi-limit switch cools down the furnace will go back to heating again then it will overheat again(you get the picture?) If it keeps cycling on and off like that the house will never get warm if it is cold outside. If your air filter is reasonably clean(you should be able to see light thru it easily) then the secondary heat exchanger could also be dirty, this is located above the indoor fan housing, you would need to pull the indoor blower assembly out of the furnace and look up above. The secondary heat exchanger looks similar to a radiator will fins. You can use a medium stiff plastic brush to brush the dirt,hair, whatever off of it. Another problem spot would be the cooling evaporator coil (if you have central airconditioning) located most likely above the furnace in the plenum(if your furnace is in a basement). This usually is difficult to access if an access cover wasn't installed when the airconditioning was installed. I would recommend an experience service tech to clean it for you. Also make sure all you supply air registers and return air registers are open . These are the things I would check first. Good luck!!

My Air Conditioner does not get cold after I turned it off and turned it back on. I have now turned the themostat off about 20 mins ago


Air conditioners need a few mins to stabilize (the fluid in the lines) after they are shut off in the middle of operation. The comperssor will normally time out for several mins after it shuts off (or you shut it ofF) preventing it from coming back on within that time. So if you turn it off, and then right back on, you can expect warm air for several mins untill it times out.

Home heating problem


You need to have your ducts balanced. It takes special equipment and expertise. They block some and open some ducts so the air flow is even throughout! You could just partially block or close the vents in the center and you might get more heat in the end of the runs. Also if the ducts are running in unconditioned air, like under the house or in the attic. You could be losing heat by not having insulation on the ducts. Try wrapping them.
Hope that helps.
