There are a few reasons why your furnace is restarting after it reaches temp. and shuts off. First, if you have a mercury bulb thermostat it needs to be level and the heat anticipator needs set properly. If you have an electronic thermostat then you need to make sure the DIP switch settings inside are set properly for propane. If you have a digital thermostat there are also settings to be made for your type of heating. These settings will be explained in the thermostat installation instructions. Also, Make sure your furnace filter is clean. If this does not help then there are some other things to check which may need to be done by a technician depending on your mechanical aptitude. Hope this helps!

Coleman Evcon DGAT070BDD furnace fan continues to cycle on & off after temp is reached blowing cold air. Replaced control board & limit switch - problem continues


If its turn on AND off, I'd suspect a shorted control wire. Remove the G terminal at the control board and see if the problem continues. If it does not, then you know it's in the wire that connects your unit to the tstat, or the tstat itself. The reconnect G, and at your tstat, disconnect G. If the problem goes away, with G disconnected at tstat, its the tstat. If it continues, the the control wire has a short between G and R. If neither one of these work, then there's something else in that unit that's causing 24v power to engage G. Hope this helps!

I have a Coleman Evcon gas (propane) furnace. When the t-stat is switched to heat the furnace heats up but the blower will never turn on. The unit then shuts down and tries to cycle again. I have replaced...


If the unit fires but the main blower fan doesn't come on the the unit is shutting off on a temp high limit switch and it sounds like the problem is the main blower fan motor or control

I have a Coleman Evcon Mdl DGAT070BDD I am getting a trouble code 4 Flashes, which means Limit is Cycling. I replace both the control board and the limit switch, and still have the same problem.


Your heater is listed under a safety/inspection recall notice, these units have been found to overheat in certain circumstances, which can lead to a failure of the heat exchanger and the furnace. Might be the cause of your problems: http://www.dgatprogram.com/ They should do a free inspection, Good luck

Coleman furnace blower runs continuously


You should be seeing 120 volts to the igniter. Anything less requires either a replacement of the transformer, start relay or control module.

How to install an igniter?


if the heater uses a hot surface igniter its a simple matter of unscrewing the igniter and replacing it with another unit. if it is a spark ignition, the spark wire is a heavy insulated wire that goes to the gap. check out white-rodgers for a replacement. if your furnace uses a purge mode get a purge cycle programmable igniter.
