SOURCE: exhaust fan turns on for a few min, then shuts

There is a gas valve that controls the burner and has a flame sensor that keeps it from supplying gas when there's no flame. There's a chance that the unit overheated and caused a heat overload protector to fail, which was a safety feature to keep the unit from becoming dangerous. You may need to replace that overload protector. The pilot light may have just went out, and you'll need to light it again and make sure the gas valve is set to on. The flame sensor may be dirty and thinking the pilot is not on. The flame sensor will be a wire or probe mounted close to the pilot light. The gas valve may have failed and need to be replaced. You probably can't cause a lot of damage by just looking around in there and cleaning the flame sensor, but you're dealing with fire here, and you should leave anything like taking the gas line apart to a professional.

SOURCE: Rheem RHQA Heater:Blower works but no heat.

Is there a setting on the thermostat for Auto or Fan? If so, make sure it is in the Auto setting. You will have a contactor that turns on the elements and a relay for the fan. Follow the wiring diagram to see which relay energizes the fan then unplug it to see if the fan stops.

If the hot surface ignitor comes on and fires the burners, and then shuts back down, you need to take a look at the flame sensor. It is a ceramic rod with a metal tip that rests in the pilot flame. When heated from burners, it sends a signal to the main control module, circuit board, which ever this unit is equipped with to keep the burners on. It is a safety to shut the burners down if there is a problem. Take some fine steel wool to clean the metal tip on this and this should take care of the problem. If this does not do it, then 99% of the time you have a faulty control board or module. It will have to be replaced.It is where this flame sensor connects.It will continue to drop out of the circuit, and the fan will start and run. You're T-stat is good or the Hot Surface ignitor would not glow. You will need to take as much info you can from the unit, Goodman and the control, all numbers with you.You can purchase this part at a appliance parts house, or air conditioning parts house. Please keep me informed, I would like to hear back from you. I hope this has given you some direction to follow.Good Luck,

SOURCE: fan blows but no heat/fan won,t shut on and off in

Certain gas furnaces will default to high speed fan ON any time a high temp limit opens or the 24 volt transformer fails. Please respond to describe your make of furnace and if the fan runs only when your thermostat calls for heat or if that makes a difference.

My utility heater by Pelonis model hb301 serial no. 3011137160 will not heat up anymore .

the over temp safety switch has failed. It is replaceable but is a pain to change as they are usually attached with special high heat crimp terminals. there should have been a a warning light on the front that is supposed to warn you when the high temp switch has been activated.

I do not have the manual to my fan forced heater (model HF-0034) and I am not sure how to work it. It keeps shutting off after a few seconds of heat. Then it will turn on again in 10 minutes and back off...

A lot of this, may be caused by the temperature setting and where the heater is placed. If the temperature is not set high enough, as opposed the ambient room temperature, it probably only turns ON briefly. Also, if the heater is placed near a heat source or in direct sun light, it's sensing the temperature from those sources, rather than the room air.

Try moving it to a another location and setting the temperature on the unit a bit higher.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know.

The fan does not turn on but the furnace does appear to heat uo

Try turning the fan on manually at the Thermostat by clicking "Fan On"...if thiis turns the fan on...leave it running and you will have heat till a Service Tech can come out....if if doesn't work you will req a Technician to have a look . Likely if the furnace is fairly new either the Relay , Circuit board relay or the motor itself is Defective.
