Denise, my heater not a coleman (a monitor heater (oil) kept turning off when the temp got really cold. I would advise you to ask if you can do this, I addded an additive to my drum outside which holds the fuel. Because the deisel thickens up when it gets cold, which makes the heater have a harder time distributing the fuel to the heater. So far the heater has not kicked off.

Question about efficiency of a colman electric furnace 3500A816. In a mobile home built in 1997.

Is this your main heating system for the mobile home? I hope these other solutions mentioned help but I would think you have to replace it since it is a 1997. Mobile homes get cold I wouldn't trust it if it does it again.

Furnace kicks off and right back on

If this is a newer furnace, an indication of an error is that the room air blower stays on. Get in front of the furnace and see if you can see any blinking lights. Try not to remove any panels as you will erase any error codes. There should ba a small viewing port that you can look through. Once you count the blinks, look at the wiring diagram for the error code chart. It may give you a starting point. Can you tell us a make and model number of the system?

My fan is always on on my colman model eb12a furnace and i dont have much heat comeing out of the vents

If the room air fan is always on you could have the thermostat in the On position rather than in the Auto position, You could have a bad fan relay or the furnace is a "Lock-out" mode. A Lock-out occurs when the furnace attempted to start but could not for some reason. The computer board logs an error code and blinks a number of times. There should be an error code chart where ever the wiring diagram is located in the furnace. It may give you an idea where to start looking if in Lock-out. Good luck.

Green light stays on, red light blinks along with a buzzing noise

colman uses the furnace to power the attic vent fan . Cheaper that way I guess. It just supplies your attic fan with power so it will vent thus keeping your home a little cooler in the summer.
not a big deal. you can shut the alarm with a switch ot cut power to the alarm.
