Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Gibson model KG6RC furnace, it is 3 years old. It was working fine this morning, then it cycled to kick on and never did. It acts like it is going to start, but it don't. I have checked the blower, it's fine, the ignitor is also fine. I switched it off at the main breaker and turned it back on- now what?

Look for limit switches, you can find one or two manual push button switches near the exchangers. If that doesn't work, find the primary limit switch it is on the wall of the exchangers and does not have a manual botton to reset, get a paper clip and bypass those two wires, turn power back on then see if it works... Try the same thing with the manual limits, they have one wire coming in one going out, if continuity is broken furnace will not start. You must not leave the paper clip in, take the bad limit and replace it..

Have Gibson furnace runs cycle but seems don't get hot enough out of vents check all 115 degrees at vents use to lot hotter old furnace you couldn't stand on vents now you can easily


Is this a gas furnace ? Newer high eff. gas furnaces do have cooler outlet temperatures. The installer should have checked the temperature rise and gas pressure. By adjusting the gas pressure and blower speed you can obtain a higher outlet temp, but you don't want the gas pressure to be higher than the manufacture specs and you don't want the furnace to run outside of the manufactures temp rise specs.

My furnace is 4 years old. It cycles but does not ignite


More info is needed.
When you say it "Cycles", where does that fall into the following sequence....
1. Call for heat
2. Inducer starts(exhaust)
3. Pressure switch closes( connected to inducer via hose)
4. Ignitor glows or sparks
5. Gas valve opens and burners light
Does the ignitor glow or spark at all?
Do you see the exhaust working?
Sometimes the small hose that runs from the exhaust housing to the pressure switch will get clogged. Blow it out and don't forget the inlet and outlet.

Somewhere on the unit there is a small chart that identifies the problem that the lights are indicating. That helps narrow down a long list of possibilities. However, if you catch it acting up you can check that limit switch like this:
with your voltmeter set to voltage test from one side of the switch to the other. If the limit is "open" due to an overheat problem your meter will read 240 or 24 volts depending. If the limit is closed/working it will read 0 volts. The unit must be running for this test. The problem is there is a small window of opportunity before it cools off and closes. Whatever you do, DO MOT BYPASS THE LIMIT!

My Gibson Furnace clicks on but no heat comes out.


After four years I do not thing you have an effective warranty even if the company still in business. you need to open it first and clean it from any builod up dust and check the switch to see if it is working (thermostate)

Furnace not cycling properly.


you might want to check the filter, if the filter is restricting the airflow the furnace will over heat and it will shut down. if you turn it off and on it will reset it and it will try again. Pull the filter out half way and try that, if it runs fine then clean the filter or get a less restrictive one.

Furnace shutting on and off every four to five minutes all day


Have you had furnace cleaned? Have you changed filter or took filter out and try heater? Have you checked return grill to make sure you don't have anything in front of it. Return grill or duct could be blocked or two small. Blower motor could be going off on thermal overload. Does the heater do the same thing when it is 20 degrees outside. The other thing it could be is furnace is not big enough.
Good luck let me know what you find 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.
