Question about Heating & Cooling
I turn the thermostat on and the heat kicks on for about 3 minutes then the air turns cold and the fan stays on constantly.termostat is set on auto,heat.Why wont it shut off when the heat shuts off. [arcoaire]
The blower motor kicks on when there has been a 24 volt control failure.
This usually means that a limit switch has tripped.
Most likely that would be a high temp limit switch or a rollout switch.
First, make sure the filters are clean. and the evap coil is clean. If eaither are dirty/clogged, it will partially block airflow, causing the furnace to overheat, causing the high temp limit to trip.
A rollout switch typically trips for three reasons.
1 flame rollout into the burner compartment due to poor airflow.
2 overheating af teh metal plate the rollout is mounted to, due to dirty, old, rusted components.
3 a bad limit switch.
If your unit has an LED light, count the flashes and it will hepl popint out the problem.
(locate the wiring diagram/flash code list, and correspond the flash count, with the code.)
First, check filters.
