Coleman Evcon..... Inducer Adjustment

Mr Drumbanger..
I talked to my furnace person and told him that you had mentioned the inducer may need adjusted...... He did not know how you would adjust the inducer other than perhaps adjusting the fan to make sure it wasnt rubbing....... Can you be so kind as to enlighten me on how you would go about adjusting the inducer...... Thank You So Much

    muttandjeff,

    I was told by drumbanger I may need to adjust the inducer.... I told my furnace man and he said he had never knew of any such adjustment... unless you could adjust the fan but other than that he didnt know of any adjustment.... My furnace will run fine and then I'll get three blinks from it but at times it will still kick on with the light blinking.... go figure.....At times it will go below at the temp its set on and then kick on.... I have a psycho furnace and no one seems to know whats up with it.... Furnace man wanted to put in an inducer but its running as I type........Coleman puts out some mysterious furnaces......

  • bumperooo Dec 25, 2008

    Well I came up with solution..... There is a gasket that sits on top of the inducer....... I find out threw Coleman, that if any part of the impeller is touching that gasket it will cause you problems when it comes to kicking on furnace..... Coleman said that gasket touching the impeller can cause the furnace to be very tempermental....The furnace would kick on at times with the light blinking...... that really caused us to scratch out heads....I guess with drumbanger said adjust the inducer he had to be thinking of that account theres no other way to adjust anything......

  • bumperooo Jan 23, 2009

    My solution to my furnace problem..... was to take off the inducer and make sure that no part of the gasket between the inducer and impeller were touching the impeller..... My furnace man worked on gasket and made sure it wasnt touching the impeller and its worked wonderfully ever sense....

  • bumperooo Jan 23, 2009

    A coleman person out of Wichita, Kansas...whom I contacted enlightened my furnace man on what to do.... Said take that inducer off and make sure that the gasket isn't touching any part of the impeller....as the coleman evcons can be very tempermental if any part of that impeller is touching the gasket...... Thank god for technicians.... I was about to have a baby.......and I'm a guy......

    There is NO adjustment on an induced draft motor other than the positioning of the fan wheel.....

    What is the furnace doing? Are you having a problem?

  • Scott Magill May 11, 2010

    i have never hear of any adjustment or seen any adjustment. sounds like you have it fixed. I haven't seen gasket a problem before either.

  • Scott Magill May 11, 2010

    what is going on with your heater? how old is heater? have you checked combustion air?

There are certain ways to strengthen air flow to activate the vacuum switch. It may be that something is obstructing the flue pipe, or the unit was installed too far from the outside where it exhausts. Or there may be some debris in the small tube to the vacuum switch....or,,,or a dozen other things. ?///good luck

ROLLOUT SWITCH OPEN, COLEMAN EVCON FURNACE


Reset the switch. Check the heat exchanger thoroughly for blockages, cracks or holes. Check induced draft motor for proper operation. Check flue pipe and chimney for obstructions.

Goodman furnaces gxs91155dxaa will not start> steady red light on the circut. No inducer motor. Somthing strange when I disconnect the Roll Out sensor the blower motor runs along with the inducer...


I would first try to power up the inducer motor by itself. If this works without any issue than the next step is to look at the circuit board. You will need a multimeter. Set it to 120V AC and test the leads on the circuit board that the inducer motor attach to. Turn the system on and see if you get a reading on the meter, if so, then you know the motor is getting power. I would then check the legend of your furnace with the led pattern. You mention it is steady, look up what the steady light means. It may point to a control board error, in that case you will need to replace the board.

I have a Coleman evcon gas furnace. The inducer motors activates when the thermostat is engaged,but shuts off before the heater kicks on. There is also a blinking red light.


Hello, it sounds like the pressure switch is not closing on your furnace and remaining open, reasons for this could be a blocked flue pipe, the tubing going from the inducer motor to pressure switch could be blocked, loose, or have condensation in it, or the switch itself is bad. U can check the tubing by taking it off blowing some air through it and making sure no condensation is in the tubing, then reinstall it. If everything checks out good then the pressure switch is bad and must be replaced.

Evcon, 3 flashes, combustion air switrch failed to


I have 2 of these furnaces in mobile homes I own. On both of these the wheel inside the draft inducer blower that has the clear tube attached to it has a small wheel in it that over time tends to stick. Take the 4 screws out and give this little wheel located towards the bottom a push. Your problem may be solved without investing in expensive parts :)

I have a coleman evcon gas furnace in a 95 trailer the draft fan stays on until you tap on furnace


Most Coleman units in a trailer dont have a draft fan. Are you talking about the fan that blows air through the floor registers? If yes, then you will probably need a new fan/limit control. If you do have a draft motor, you would probably need a new circuit board or draft fan relay.

Heat not coming on carrier gas pack code 31


code 31 indicates pressure switch did not close or reopened during the heat cycle....1st thing to check is the inducer motor,,this is a small motor that turns a small blower wheel that draws the exhaust gases through the furnace and blows them into the vent pipe....1st locate the inducer assembly,,most easily identified by the small plastic fan blade that cools the inducer motor as it runs..1st turn off tstat and turn off furnace power switch..then turn on furnace switch,then set tstat to heat,set the temp above room temp by 5 degrees...remove the furnace front cover,locate the inducer motor,,if it isnt turning,but is warm or hot after a minute or so,likely the inducer motor is bad..if it isnt turning and isnt warm after 1 minute,then likely the main control board is bad,,not turning the inducer motor when it should,,,,,if the inducer motor is running,,then the pressure switch isnt closing,, could be a bad pressure switch but more likely there is a problem with the venting...some possible problems that would cause the pressure switch not to close in an 80% eff furnace [metal vent pipe] are: [1] a blockage in the vent pipe,base of chimney,dead bird at the furnace where vent connects to furnace or down inside the inducer assy,accessed by removing vent pipe from furnace....if all clear the chimney could be blocked up inside,,is the draft good when vent is removed from base of chimney?..if furnace is a 90%+ type [pvc plastic vent pipe],,then check the intake pipe at the furnace by removing it where it attaches to top of furnace..is the intake clogged with anything?..then check the intake and exhaust pipes outside for blockages,,including ice/frost/snow at the exhaust pipe outlet..

Amana won't fire, inducer blower constantly runs.


It sounds to me like the pressure switches need replaced or they need removed and shaken upside down to get the condonsation out of them!Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
