Question about Coleman Propane Forced Air Heater w/Electronic Ignition (50,000-80,000 BTU)

Ignition failure. Relatively new furnace - under 5 years old.

Replacement unit. Apparently the igniter is not working. Is this a replacement item for a non pro, but relatively savvy handyman?

You can replace a hot surface ignitor if you are careful not to touch the silicon surface. The oil from your hand may cause the ignitor to fail. make sure to turn off electric supply before attempting. You will probably need an OEM (from a coleman dealer) ignitor.

Usually best to bring the old one with you to make sure you get the right one with the right wire terminals. Or you can wire nut a new one to the old terminals. Could also be a dirty flame sense rod.
Hope this helps.

We have royal red furnace to heat our home.The fan dose not stop.


Details.......does the furnace function normally otherwise? Might just be a stuck fan switch. Make sure the thermostat hasn't been set on Fan ON setting or summer air circ. on older furnaces.
Find the fan switch and tap it and see if fan quits. If it does,fan switch is bad.probably. Always make sure your air circ. filter(return air to furnace) is replaced every 3 mo. or so,too. don-ohio (:^)

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

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.

Is it cost effective to replace draft inducer blower on 22 year old furnace?


Depends on the cost to repair. Probably a 22 year old furnace is not very efficient also. Take every thing into consideration.
If it still works it may work for a while but you don't want a break down in the middle of winter.
