Williams wall furnace no longer adequately heats home

I have a 12 year-old Williams wall furnace. In the past, the heater would heat my 1,000 sq. ft. home completely (although it would take a few hours). Now, even though I'll have it runnig all day, it does not warm the entire home. I know the heater is not emitting the same amount of heat as it used to. Any one know what might be causing this problem or howo to fix it? Thanks

A couple thoughts. On some of the wall furnace gas valves there's a knob that you can set for low fire or high fire. If your valve has this make sure it is in the high fire setting. Is the wall furnace controlled by a wall thermostat or a knob on the heater? With the thermostat turned all the way up like to 90, does the burner and fan continue to run or is the burner short cycling. Is the fan clean and running up to speed. Some of the Williams wall furnace had a two speed fan motor so when the fan came on at first it would run on low speed. As the heat exchanger got hotter the internal fan switch would switch it to high speed. Outside of that you would need a monometer to check the manifold gas pressure.

SOURCE: Lakewood 792/JR heater running w/o heat

Hi Spybotics. I have the same problem and I traced mine down to a burned out over-heat fuse link. Check out my recent post. My guess is that you are having the same problem as me. It's not hard to tell - just take off the rear panel and test the link (looks like a small resistor in line with the element) with an ohm meter. Open circuit means burned out fuse link. DO NOT bypass the link, as an extreme fire hazard will exist without it.

A clue to what could be wrong is that you mentioned it took 10 minutes for the pilot to go out. It could be your gas valve. Get a technician in to check your gas pressure both before the gas valve and after. Have them check it as the water heater is running.

SOURCE: question on a day and night gas forced air heater

it very well sounds like your fan switch , does your fan work at all, like in ac mode on by turning the fan on/auto switch on the thermostat to ON. If the fan does come on its the more and likely the limit switch. if it doesnt come on it could be the motor or the run capacitor. the limit switch has a dial on it that as it heats up it spins clicking on at a desired set temp ussually about 120 to 150 degrees F. turning on the fan if the fan doen't come in the the next setting clicks off the gas valve turning off the burners ussually set at about 220 degrees F. now if the fan is working when the heater is satisfied there is a setting at about 90 deegrees F. that shuts the fan off hope this helps

SOURCE: Electricity cost per hour

1500w / 1000w = 1.5 kwh. Every hour you run (assuming it is at 100% peak power) you use 1.5 kw. Just multiply that rate by how much it your power company charges per kwh.

Estimating high at 10 cents per kwh it would be $1 for every 10 hours you run the heater, or $2.40 per day, or about $72 per month if you ran it 24/7 for 30 days.

It is FAR cheaper to use these types heaters to heat one small room than an entire apartment or house if you are only in one room the majority of the time.

Williams 3003622 pilot light is on but heat doesn't turn on- there is a "Do It" thermostat connected. Is it a problem with the thermostat or furnace?


Try jumping out the thermostat (red and white wires) that run to the thermostat these tell the heater to come on. Jump them together if you have heat it is the thermostat, if no heat it is the furnace. Should it be the furnace I would first check the thermocouple or some manufacturers call it a flame generator. Clean this with steel wool and position it in the top center area of the flame as this is the hottest part of the flame. Good luck

How do you turn the pilot light back on? This is an older model, probably about 10 years old or so.


Move the gas valve knob to the PILOT position and press down on the knob. You will be pressing down on a spring loaded safety magnet. Now light the pilot and keep holding down the knob till the thermocouple gets hot enough to produce electrical current and hold that spring loaded magnet in. This is your safety device. If the heat gets too hot the furnace has a fuse in line with that magnet.
When the pilot stays lit by itself without you having to hold down the button then advance the knob to the ON position. Then go to the wall thermostat and turn on the heater.

I'm considering installing a Goodman LP Gas Furnace:sizing? Ops?


Gerge, if you go to website www.energycodes.gov
you can do a heat load calc yourself. Basically, you figure out the sizes of walls, total area of glass. total doors to outside, ceiling area and types of building materials used. It is pretty easy and then you will know for sure. The contractor should be suppling you with one but if not use this, it is free!
