Burner not full force

I have and intertherm propane forced air with a single burner. when the thermostat calls for heat the exhaust blower turns on and because the pilot is always on the burner turns on also.. but the burner isnt strong enough to heat the box so the blower motor never gets the signal to turn on

Could be your gas pressure is too low. Also, there is a particular type of spider that likes to get into the gas line at the gas valve and spin a little web in there. I have often seen this as the cause of low gas pressure. If neither of these is the cause, I would suspect a faulty gas valve.

I have an intertherm furnace model number 901282 and it will not heat my house when i turn on the thermostat it starts but just blows out cold air pleases help


The blower should come on after ignition occurs. When the blower comes on first ignition will not be activated as the thermostat signal shows the heat is on. This happens when the blower relay is stuck in the on condition

Nordyne furnace FEH017HA-04 the fan runs full force when the ac is on but half speed when the furnace kicks in


That is probably normal if it is electric heat to slow the air over the heating elements. Even some gas units do this. Check to see if the unit blower motor has wires for multiple speeds.

I have a weather king model 90RJ - first time I've had hot air heat..When I turn on the heat, the blower turns on right away ( blowing cold air) - I understand that the ducts have to cleared of the cold...


When the furnace first comes on there is a induced draft motor that should come on first but that forces air up the exhaust or flue,not into supply air on ductwork. It is not unusual for cold air to be blown out when burner first turns blower motor on. This should last for a short period of time, no more than a min. or two. You can watch furnace cycle by removing top front cover, I should back up here and ask is this a gas or electric unit. If it is gas you should be able to watch burner flames for a short time before blower comes on. I really need more information so I can try to ascertain what is going on. Wish I could be more help. Thank you.

Goodman unit. when i turn it on the blower fan and the exhaust fan comes on butit does not lite no flames at all. i don't even hear the gas click in.


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 igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter 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 igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (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).

Furnace Blower cycles on & off


check out the fan switch on the unit and make sure that its the correct one. it should cycloe on @ 120 degrees and cycle off around 100 degrees. Someone may have put in a different one and that is not the approve one.
