Furnace wont start when thermostat sends signal

I have an Beckett oil furnace and a digital thermostat. When the temp in the house drops below the temp set on thermostat, the thermostat send a signal to the furnace but the furnace does not start. When I press the restart button on the furnace it starts, heats the home to the set temp and then shuts down but it won't restart once the temp in the house drops again. What could be the problem?

Bad primary control (the box with the reset button), maybe your thermostat but unlikely. Try the Primary Control first. How old is your burner?

If it is a digital thermostat you must follow the set up instructions once you install the wires. Some are multi device,, which means they can be used for oil burners, electric furnaces , and gas furnaces. They have cycle programs that are different. The book will tell you which set up code to use for the type of furnace you have. If it was doing it before, it could be the primary control on the furnace itself (usually a honeywell ),,a sticking relay etc.. you need to have a technician take a look at it.

My programable thermostat is not working properly. Every time it gets real cold, it stops running and the temp. in the house drops to below 60. Where do I start for a solution ? It's a Lux thermostat.


If it only doesn't work when it get real cold, the problem is probably not the thermostat. Make sure your filters are clean. If a filter gets dirty some furnaces will overheat and cycle the heat on and off, and when it gets real cold, it can't keep up.

I want you to do a simple test to verify that this is a thermostat problem for me. Start by removing the thermostat from its' mounting, next locate the red and white wire terminals place a jumper between them. If the heater now runs it is the thermostat went bad on you, if it does not run please check all connections both to the thermostat and to the furnace making sure that your wires have tight connections and are not broken. I am really leaning towards the thermostat being bad here. Sorry for the bad news but really strong feeling. Good luck

Gas Furnace trouble


the thermostat sends a signal to the circuit board. Not knowing anymore than I do about your heater or furnace I would suggest that that is a good place to start. Any limit or safety switch wouldnt coincidentally shut off the heater when it reached the set temp.

RHEEM OIL FURNACE MODEL ROBD 067 LBEA BLOWER


You will likely need to install an isolation relay in the W circuit from the thermostat. Some thermostats rob a small current through the W circuit to power the thermostat. This small current can be enough to start the fan circuit timer. You can test this by disconnecting W at the furnace and allowing the timer to shut down. If the fan shuts off with the W disconnected you can install a simple relay.

The relay coil will be connected to Common on one side and the W from the thermostat to the other. Then you will run a wire from R on the furnace to the relay and from the N.O. Contacts to the W terminal on the furnace. This will kill that signal that is starting the timer and the W can steal it's power through the coil back to common.

However - the problem is probably not with your thermostat but with your furnace. It is most likely a dirty flame sensor - a maintenance issue. If you have not had your furnace serviced recently (more than 1 year) that is where you should start. Modern furnaces require regular maintenance.
