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 air unit keeps blowing the three amp fuse


BEWARE OF HIGH VOLTAGE! 220VAC CAN KILL YOU! That said, it sounds like you have a short in the control (24VAC) curcuit to the condenser. A mouse probably made a home in the control compartment of your condenser. BEWARE OF HIGH VOLTAGE! 220VAC CAN KILL YOU!

Igniter failure


The ignitor is probably going bad.You need to reset the cycle, then head out to get a new one before it trips cycle again.

Either that or order a new one for delivery.

If you can't leave the house to get a new one, eventually the one that is there is going to fail totally, and you won't have any heat.

When you install a new one DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW ONE WITH YOUR FINGERS. Contact and/or grasp only using the paper shield that it comes packaged in .

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.
