Sounds like the circulating fan on your furnace is not running. This will cause the furnace to shut down due to overheating, and you can smell the overheating as well. You will probably have to press a reset button on the burner to clear the overheat shutdown. Check the fan belt if there is one. If no belt you have an integral motor. Remove all power from the system and make sure the fan spins freely. If it doesn't, try to work some oil into the bearings. These things always fail on a holiday, but if you can't get the fan spinning you're going to have to call in a HVAC specialist.

If this is a gas furnace it sounds like you have a polarity issue (line and neutral swapped) or you do not have a good ground to the unit. The newer units 1998 on up are polarity sensitive and require a good ground for its controls and safeties for continuous operation. Checking these things should resolve your problem. After it tries to fire twice without the flame sensor sending back a flame sensed flame signal it will lock itself out until the call for Heat is not present which will reset the control board.

Fryer lights off, but won't turn off when the thermostat is turned to the off position


The pilot flame will stay lighted even when the thermostat is off, you have to turn the gas valve knob to off position in order to shut the pilot flame.
But when burner flame remains on after shutting off the thermostat, the thermostat's mechanical contacts are shorted or remained engaged. If this is tha case, you have to replace the thermostat.

Set thermostat to auto switch unit to heat. Unit lights runs for a minute then shuts off. Fault light blinks4 times, msg. Open high limit.


Check air filter for blockage, clean off flame rod found in the flame pattern of the last burner that ignites, check high limit switch with multimeter to see if good (found above the burner box). Make sure room air blower turns on within 90 seconds of first flame.

Check the air lines going to air pressure switch for cracks or splits. I know that will affect the gas valve but not sure if that is your problem.

Trying to cool down...when i set temporary to specific temperature, it won't cool down. Also, snowlflake icon has been displayed since yesterday. Not flashing, just displaying. ANy suggestions?


snowflake is the symbol for cool on some thermostats and a flame pic is for heat. As far as the unit not cooling you need to do a few things to see where the problem could be. First you need to turn on the unit and go to the outside section and see if the compressor is turning on. You will be able to hear the compressor by the humming it emits. If you do not hear the humming there could be a chance the compressor's capacitor is out. In that case you will need to have it replaced
If you hear the compressor then it's possible and more than likely you are low on freon. Both items the freon and the capacitor wwould need to be taken care of by a tech due to licensing for the freon and the capicitor because of the wiring. Good Luck Hope that helps

Pilot lights (not always) but gas will not flow into burner


First Clean the ignitor assembly and make sure the flame is reaching the flame sensor strongly.

You may need to replace the flame sensor.
