Question about Empire Heating & Cooling
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.

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!
