Fan does not stop


The assumption is that you are talking about the indoor fan....If so, check the thermostat fan 'on-auto' position and make sure it is in the automatic mode. If so, there is a possibility that the fan relay on the fan control is stuck in the closed position. If you have an older electric furnace, the first stage heating element could be stuck closed because the fan comes on with the first stage heat on many of the brands over 10 years old.

My heat is coming out cool. How long does it take until I feel it?


If it is an electric furnace, the heat sequencers usually take 45 seconds to possibly 1 1/2 minutes to fully stage on. This depends on how many elements you have. Of course, once they stage on, one or more elements COULD be burnt out.

If its a gas furnace over ten/twelve years old, the thermally activated control should start the blower at approximately 140 degrees. That usually occurs within one or two minutes of main gas opening.

If its a gas furnace that's relatively new, the blower comes on through a circuit board after a call for heat is initiated and could run and blow cold air even if the main gas flame is in flame failure.

Auto fan does not start electric furnace


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the furnace won't run, check the electrical service panel for a blown fuse or tripped breaker. Also make sure the power switch on or near the furnace is turned on. Check the unit for a reset button and try it. Some units have a built-in breaker or fuse panel.
If there is not enough heat, raise the thermostat setting five degrees to see if it turns the unit on. If the unit still does not generate enough heat, check the comfort controls . Clean or replace a dirty filter, clean the blower assembly (see the Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide), and make sure that all registers are open and not blocked.
If the furnace turns on and off repeatedly (cycles), clean or replace the filter; and clean the blower assembly (see Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide).
If the furnace is noisy, make sure access panels are mounted and fastened securely; spray squeaking belts with fan-belt dressing and replace worn or damaged belts; adjust the blower belt; lubricate motor and blower oil ports.
If the element does not heat, refer to the Heating Element Fix-It Guide for guidance.

HEAT PUMP


It is not normal to have a loud buzz associated with the electric heat. Try turning the heat off and running the fan only to see if the buzz continues. The buzz could be coming from any number of sources including an electrical component, the blower wheel, a loose fastener...etc.
The temporary smoke and smell could have been the dust burning off the element if the elements have not been used in a long time. However, if the elements have been running, it could be something got loose in your system and stuck between the blower and the heating elements.....for example, the wiring diagram could have come loose and worked it's way through the wheel. I've also seen owner's manuals left in the air handler that eventually got stuck in the blower. This should be inspected to ensure there is not a fire hazard.

I hope this helps and good luck. :-)

I have a Trane XE1200 AC unit which emits a slight electrical burning smell when it turns on / cycles throughout the day. the smell is very similar to that of the furnace when it initially turns on during...


I would have a tech come out and check the voltage going into the fan relay and fan itself. The smell being as how it is coming through the vents in the house tells me that the problem has got to be at the blower or in the area at the blower fan which leads me to the possibilty that the smell could be the windings on the motor. This could be because the voltage may be to high. Good luck on repairs
