When the heater is on, should the fan outside on top of the unit also be working along with the blower from the heater ? When the heater is off, cold air is comming from the vent's, can I cover the


No. This is strictly a gas package unit, not a heat pump. the condenser fan motor should NOT run when their is a call for heat from the thermostat. The condenser fan only runs with the compressor on a call for cooling. Hopefully the compressor is not running @ the same time, but if it is, it would make sense that the contactor for the compressor & condenser fan motor is stuck closed OR the low voltage cooling wires are shorted straight to a 24Volt control wire.

When we first bought the heater the coils did not turn red but they are now . what could cause this , and is it dangerous?


when you first bought the heater even if it wasnt "red" as you say did you get heat from it? now those type of heaters are good when they work. First the heater has 2 settings say low and high now in low the wattage will turn some of the elements partly red the reason you dont see it is because it is fan forced heat on those type heaters which causes the elements to look like they are not red but they are on, only low will do this. Now high will cause all elements to get "red" even while the fan is running. If there is no heat someone needs to bypass switch to see if they work.process of iliminitation.Hope this helps for you.

Heat only works when car is going fast


Sounds like the fan will not run, and the air pressure from moving quickly is the only air running through the heater core. Check all the fuses in the fuse block for any open (blown) fuses. If there are no open fuses, have your mechanic check for vacuum leaks, as they may be inhibiting the motion of the louvers that re-direct air in your heating system. (That is, if the fan DOES run and there is still no heat without moving quickly.)

Oldsmobile silhouette 1999 heater does not heat in the van


it's either because your coolant isn't hot enough or your heater core is clogged and needs to be replaced.. you might wanna replace your thermostat.. because if thats stuck open then your coolant will constantly be cooled .. and thats not a good thing!!

Heater wont run on hi and doesn't get warm at all


One of two things here. You blew an internal fuse or the heating element is broken. Take your unit apart and check for bad fuses and also check that the heating coil has continuity. Let me know how you make out.

Heater not heating on 2002 suburban fan blows just does not heat up any ideas culd it be a relay switch


No, Relays control the fan running. But you said it is running. Low coolant level, clogged heater core or sticking temperature door could be the problem. Is the engine running at normal temp? Open thermostat could cause low temperature.

My heater fan wont turn on in auto mode but will in manual


Well you have a good transformer and the fuse is not blown. So I would look for the most obvious thing which is the relay. Why the relay? Well most units do double duty as air conditioner and heater. AC and heat require different fan speeds. The relay shifts the fan from low to high for ac. The fan runs on low for heat. In rare instances it could be a bad wall thermostat but most times not. You know the fan is good because you can get it to come on manually.

NO HEAT


Your heating system is run by your cooling system. If your cooliant is low then you are not going to get adiquiate heat disapation to your heater core. So check the entire cooling systerm. Your water pump (low flow), hoses (leakage), you already checked the thermostat & heater core. So other than that I don't know.

Williams wall furnace no longer adequately heats home


A couple thoughts. On some of the wall furnace gas valves there's a knob that you can set for low fire or high fire. If your valve has this make sure it is in the high fire setting. Is the wall furnace controlled by a wall thermostat or a knob on the heater? With the thermostat turned all the way up like to 90, does the burner and fan continue to run or is the burner short cycling. Is the fan clean and running up to speed. Some of the Williams wall furnace had a two speed fan motor so when the fan came on at first it would run on low speed. As the heat exchanger got hotter the internal fan switch would switch it to high speed. Outside of that you would need a monometer to check the manifold gas pressure.
