Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

I have replaced the blower motor in my furnace and it is not blowing enough to heat the house. The fan is running but not enough to heat. The vents are warm but there is minimal air output.

    Thanks Jacob, but as it turns out Im just a dummy. After replacing motor i installed the air deflector below the squirrel cage on the wrong side. So I was blowing just not in the direction I was suppossed to. Thanks for the help.

First off as silly as this may seem check the filter! A furnace usually has several speeds to the blower. Heat speed is factory set at low! I would also check to see if the squirrel cage has a lot of dirt in it, this could reduce airflow. Make sure you dont have boxes, couches, etc. blocking the return air vents. If you replaced the blower motor, Be darn certain it runs at the same rpm and horse power as the OEM motor did. Furnaces run on CFM or Cubic Feet Per Minute. If you run too much cfm your temp rise across the heat exchanger will be too great causing a low supply air temp! If too little cfm than your furnace may overheat causing it to trop on a high limit switch! There culd be any amount of problems with oyur system, call a certified tech to give it a once over it will save you a headache which is usually cheaper than the bill!

Auto fan does not start electric furnace


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the furnace won't run, check the electrical service panel for a blown fuse or tripped breaker. Also make sure the power switch on or near the furnace is turned on. Check the unit for a reset button and try it. Some units have a built-in breaker or fuse panel.
If there is not enough heat, raise the thermostat setting five degrees to see if it turns the unit on. If the unit still does not generate enough heat, check the comfort controls . Clean or replace a dirty filter, clean the blower assembly (see the Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide), and make sure that all registers are open and not blocked.
If the furnace turns on and off repeatedly (cycles), clean or replace the filter; and clean the blower assembly (see Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide).
If the furnace is noisy, make sure access panels are mounted and fastened securely; spray squeaking belts with fan-belt dressing and replace worn or damaged belts; adjust the blower belt; lubricate motor and blower oil ports.
If the element does not heat, refer to the Heating Element Fix-It Guide for guidance.

We have a White-Rodgers 1F80-51. The fan blows


Usually when the furnace blower motor runs all the time
The limit switch or rollout switch is usually open or bad.
The furnace board is seeing that one of those switches is open, so it brings the blower on to try to get the heat out of the combustion chamber area, so the switch will close. But if the switch is bad and won’t close, the furnace board will keep the blower running continuously.

I have a comfort zone furnace. If it's 50 degrees in the house, and i set my thermostat to 70 or so,it takes at least 24 hours to reach 70 degrees. The furnace starts up and runs normally for about five...


When the thermostat calls for heat it should run until the room reaches the temperature setting then shut off. Is the blower motor running and can you feel air coming out of the vents? It sounds like the blower is either not running or putting out enough air to keep the furnace heating. The blower moves the heat from the heat exchanger to the room, if it can't remove enough heat from the heat exchanger there is a limit switch that will shut the burner off if it gets to hot and that's what it sounds like is happening.

Not enough air flow coming from the vents on the second floor.


If you feel like increasing your blower motor speed you can do this. Go to the air handler take the cover off to expose the blower motor. You will see a circuit board that has the blower motor wires going to it. Using your flash light look at the board and locate the terminals that read Cool Heat Park ... Now the Cool terminal should have black colored wire going to that one. Now locate the Heat terminal if it has red going to it and maybe blue sitting on the park terminal then swap the two around, blue is like med speed on the blower. Where Red is low speed. This will increase the blower about 50 rpms. You can even read your blower motor and get the speeds more detailed. You have a big house your unit is I bet a 4 ton A/C and 125,000 btu furnace. Probably has 1600 rpm motor. This is one solution. You have a up flow model and when you open the furnace cabinet up you will be able to see the specs. on the furnace. Let me know how that goes ken here in Kansas
