The main circuit board supplies ac power to the ignitor ( black transformer looking device) and the transformer increases the voltage that is supplied to the sparking device. Make sure the wires are connected to the sparking device and the ends of this device are approximately 3mm apart and that it is in the general position near the end of the nozzle. If you do not hear a "clicking" sound it could be the main board, wires or sparking device.

    There should be a "clicking" sound for about 5 seconds before the photo cell shuts the heater down. Pull the spark plug and clean it. Make sure the electrodes are about 3mm apart. Try to statr again.

New to wood furnace. Does the blower kick on automatically


Not sure what brand or model you have, but usually the fan wont come on until it heats up enough to close the fan switch which powers the blower

I have a Rheem Classic Super Quiet 80 gas furnace (for heat). The fan stops when the "heat" turns on.


Any time I ever had trouble,first thing to suspect is the thermostat.
They lose contact sometimes and sometimes you tap the face and they work til next glitch.
If the thermostat has some years on it,go ahead and replace it.
Can't you just leave the heat and fan in auto? That would be best,I think. don-ohio

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

It could be a thermostat problem. Also it will seem to run constantly as it tries to heat and one of the elements are working which could be a sequencer problem.

A/c fan not working=thermostat is working(central a/c system)a/c


The fan on the outside unit is powered from it's 240 volt source. Check that the breaker for the outside unit is not tripped. Also, a contactor is inside the outer unit that starts the fan - it may be faulty.

Flashing re co


Re Co stands for Recovery Mode. That means if you have programed your thermostat to be at say 72° at 5:00 then it should kick on in Recovery Mode several minutes before 5 in order to reach that temperature. This is normal and doesn't indicate that something is wrong, just that your thermostat is trying to reach or recover the programed temperature.
