Sounds like the pump pressure needs adjustment. If it's off from spec, (even a fraction), the unit will not fire up and run. If you still have your owners manual, check to see what the pump pressure is posted for. (probably around 3.5 PSI). Also, check for clogged fuel filter a that will restrict fuel flow and pressure...

How to troubleshoot thermostat wiring?

I'm not sure if the thermostat is wired correctly. First, the thermostat is wired directly to the outdoor unit (compressor/condenser unit). It is NOT directly connected to the indoor unit. It connects to a low voltage control panel in the outdoor unit that sends a signal to your indoor fan/evaporator. This wire is called the fan relay switch and physically runs between the low voltage controls of the indoor and outdoor units. If the fan relay is bad it's possible that the unit runs continuously. To prevent destroying your outdoor unit there is a safety feature that prevents the indoor fan from shutting down while the outdoor unit is running. If the indoor fan did shut down while the outdoor unit was running than you would slug your compressor. That is, your compressor normally sees refrigerant gas but is instead seeing refrigerant liquid. That would not be good since this scenario would destroy your compressor. It sounds like a faulty fan relay. The actual contactor portion of the relay is in the outdoor unit.

Robertshaw thermostat will not shut off heat

gas or electric furnace? sounds like bad sticking t-stat but could be sequencer or gas valve. The fan will continue to run if the unit is hot safety feature so the fact that the fan continues to run does not mean the t-stat is diffidently bad.

Qmark muh won't shut off

I believe these models have a thermal switch on or near the heating element that normally runs the fan until the element has cooled. Similar to your home furnace. If the fan never shuts off this switch is likely bad. IF it takes a long time to shut off then it may be out of calibration. In either case they are non repairable parts and have to be replaced. If the heater is in a high spot resulting in a high ambient temperature it may take a while for the fan to shut down.

I have two outside ac one for floor and other for upstairs and i button on heater auto and ac outside fan is running is that normal or not? and live on this new house for two years and cant find someone...

No the fan out side is for a condensing unit and compressor. The compressor should not run with the heat. I am almost positive that if this is not a heat pump that the compressor unit should not be running.

My furnace fan will turn on as if the furnace is going to run, then the pilot lights the burner but with in 3 seconds it shuts off. Could this be due to a bad thermostate

No i don't think your stat is bad as the unit is trying to run.There is a temp run switch in the plenum of the unit that could be causing this problem.

Its located in the metal box on top of the heater,it may be mounted externally also.

What this does is it senses air temp and tells the fan to run or not run.

You may also have a post ignition problem causing the burner to shut down.

My 30000 btu pro com blue flam has about 35% orange flams

You probably have a plugged orifice. The gas is injected into the burner via a small orifice and, when this plugs, the air / fuel mix is altered, causing the orange flame. Find your owners manual to find out how to replace the orifice or you could take it to a small engine repair facility locally who should be able to fix your problem.
Hope this helps!

Ac problem

Turn the thermostat off to see if the unit turns off. If it
does than you must have had a call for heating or cooling.

Put into heating mode let unit turn on, lower the setpoint and unit should turn off. If unit is not heating
than you have a problem with the outdoor unit.

Putinto cooling mode, turn thermostat all the way down, let unit start turn thermostat all the way up
if unit shuts off, unit is operating properly

Gas log will not stay lit for more than 5 minutes

Sounds like the gas regulator has failed.

There will be sufficient gas flow to light the pilot and get a flame prove, then the main burner lights, you will probably see the pilot flame reduce somewhat, and no longer fully surround the flame prove sensor.

When the unit is relighted, the complete sequence starts all over again.

Have the gas regulator checked and adjusted (if adjustable) or replaced by a qualified technician.
