    Same exact problem. Would love to hear if anyone has an answer.

    Lux thermostat on newer heater. Turns on and heats up just fine, but once the temp is reached the fan stays on and starts pumping cold air (continuously until I turn it off myself).

    Thanks,
    adam

First off buy yourself a honeywell stat, in my personal opinion lux stats are garbage, I have run into so many that are bad stats !!! but as far as your fan not shuting down, sounds to me like your fan center on your circuit board is bad and will not shut down the fan when needed, you will have to replace the circuit board, as the fan center is a part of the whole of the circuit board, hope that helps

If you could give me a little more information on what is going on i can give you a few things to check. How long does furnace run? Does furnace turn on and off every couple of minutes? How old is furnace? Is this furnace old or new? Have you checked Filter? has furnace been cleaned? Have you replaced the thermostat? do you have to turn furnace off and then back on before it will work again? I think from the information i can see is the thermostat is not turning off when it reaches temperature. if that is the case i would change out thermostat. I would install a digital instead of a thermostat with a mercury bulb. The digital will be an accurate temperature .

My Payne furnace is NOT producing the desired heat anymore. Any ideas?


Hello, it could be shutting down on it's high limit switch due to a dirty air filter, dirty blower wheel, weak blower motor. Usually this would cause the furnace to shut down before it reaches the desired temp.

My goodman furnacs says my limit switch is bad blower works but does not ignite .....? its modle gmt070-3 and where is it located


There are several limit switches in the unit there in various places in burner compartment. One on blower housing . One thing that I would try is replaceing your filter and turn the power off to the furnace and try starting the system after power is D/C for 5 minutes.

I have a downdraft Goodman furnace. On only some occasions the blower will start, then after a few seconds I will see the igniter light up, but then I do not get the rush of gas and lighting of the...


It sounds like you got a tough one there.When you say the blower starts up and then the igniter comes on are you refering to induced draft motor or main blower. The proper sequence is for the thermostat to call for heat at which point the induced draft motor should come on and run for 30-45 seconds,then the igniter should heat up for a few seconds then gas valve should open and main burner should light. After limit switch reaches set point for fan on ,blower should come on till after heat has reached thermostat setting then burner should go out, and blower run until fan off setting is reached on limit switch. If your furnace is not following this sequence and then not always doing the same thing in the same order,I would recommend that you change out board again. I have had several problems similar to this with Goodman units and all but one time installing new board solved it. That time I did everything I knew to do and talked to factory service techs repeatedly and finally installed new furnace. As far as your question about insulation,. As long as it is fire proof I can't see where it would hurt anything. Sorry I'm not more help. Good luck and thanks.

Carrier Furnace infinity 96.model 58MVP060-F-18114. Furnace heats


Sounds like it could be your fan limit switch. Part costs about 20 bucks and is fairly simple to replace. This limit switch is a safety that prevents your furnace from over heating. Usually when your t/s is satisfied the blower runs for a little longer after the burners have stopped, and the reason for that is the limit switch. The blower is supposed to cool this limit switch to a certain temp. and once it reaches this temp it shuts the blower off. Yours is stuck:(

Gas Furnace trouble


the thermostat sends a signal to the circuit board. Not knowing anymore than I do about your heater or furnace I would suggest that that is a good place to start. Any limit or safety switch wouldnt coincidentally shut off the heater when it reached the set temp.

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.

Furnace not cycling properly


sounds like the flame sensor needs to be replace. You can try cleaning it with steel wool. This will get you by for a little while.
