Humming noise from furnace.

I have an empire wall furnace model faw-55-spp. When it is plugged in the wall outlet there is a rather loud and consistant humming noise. This happens even when the unit is not running. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: loud humming

If this is an electric resistance heater then there is no power supply or transformer. I had a baseboard heater that would hum loudly and I found there's a wire that runs along the bottom to connect the far end of the heat element to the electrical wiring at the supply end. This wire becomes magnetized from the current flowing through it and vibrates in the channel it runs through. I was able to open this channel and squirt a bit of silicone caulk in to keep the wire from vibrating and the hum is gone.

Rmove the two screws holding the blower in place and slide it out. With the power off, rotate the wheel and inspect for debris or an impingement. If everything turns easy, you have a bad motor or start capacitor. If you have rubbing, adjust the wheel. If the motor will not turn, replace it.

Check with the manufacturer. Many times these companies offer accessory kits for such application. You will need unit Model #.

SOURCE: Empire FAW-60-2-spp fan short cycles

From what you have described, it sounds as if the Fan Control Switch, ECS Part # R-1941, which works in conjunction with the Limit Control Switch (ECS Part # 912073) is failing and needs to be replaced. You can order these parts directly from Empire Comfort Systems. If you decide to replace these parts yourself, it will give you an opportunity to thoroughly clean the interior of the Wall Furnace, if you haven't already. If you need further information, contact Empire Comfort Systems, Technical Service @ 800-851-3153 Monday - Friday.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot the problem. Please don't forget to rate my response. Thanks!

Faw 55 no fan operation


All fan switches should read open line or "OL" when the furnace is cool, but if the motor seems stiff see if it is oilable. It may have small holes covered by yellow or black plastic plugs covering the holes. If it does and you have not oiled it, go to the hardware store and ask for a motor oiler such as a Zoom spout. Place 3-5 drops of oil in each hole then spin the motor by hand, it may loosen up. The limit side of the fan/limit switch has no impact on the fan motor.

Pilot lights and one panel burns


Empire faw 40 makes a loud bang when starting up. There are three burners. The pilot light is on one burner. When the furnace starts, gas is lit on that burner and the flame is passed on to the other burners by a small channel that can get stopped up. You just have to remove the burners and clean the channel with a small file, like on a finger nail clipper. This can be difficult due to the pilot assemble being attached with two bolts. The bolt on the right has to be removed with a short screw driver. You can not get a socket on it. After you remove it there is enough play to remove the bracket and gas burners.3_4_2012_5_06_50_am.jpg
