    there is no fuse. wish there was

  • Roy Hope Jan 13, 2013

    Is this a gas or electric heater? Do you have the make and model number? Any idea how old it is?

  • Roy Hope Jan 13, 2013

    Most forced air htrs have either a buss or mini fuse to protect from thermostat shorts

    Its a electric coleman model 3115B750.

  • ibleedblue Jan 13, 2013

    Im guessing its about 30 years old.

  • ibleedblue Jan 13, 2013

    there are no fuses anywhere. There is a 80 amp circuit breaker in my main panel and 60 and 30 amp sub breakers in the furnace itself. there is pwer to all components in the heater. the elements dont heat up and the blower will not come on.

There should be a removable fuse located on the circuit board when you open the furnace cover which may be the culprit..... Good Luck!

Sounds like your repair man ripped you off. He should have stood behind his work.
1. I would try to clean the flame sensor located just below the burners. It is connected to "one" wire (Not the two wire) clean rod with sandpaper.
2. The old and thermostat could have a had a bad heat anticipator. if the new t/stat is not digital the heat anticpator on the T/stat needs to be adjusted. slide the small adjuster arm under the cover to about .6 or .7 and see if the solves the problem. if the t/stat is digital it should be preset from the factory.
3. last resort have a service man check your pressure swith. could be a slow inducer motor, blocked or bad vacum line, or a restricted drain or flue pipe.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Furnace does not turn on normally

Having to reset it tells me that there is probably an error code blinking on the control board. Look for a small viewing port that looks into the cabinet. Count the number of blinks then remove the panels to find the wiring diagram pasted on one of them. On the diagram you will find a diagnostic code to help you narrow down the problem. It could be as simple as a plugged air filter.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

Sounds like the switch that controls the blower is faulty. It should heat up then come on at preset temp. As for the stat where is it located. It should be located 60" off the ground not in any direct sunlight and make sure it is insulated behind the stat. You could have more heat loss in those rooms too. IE poorly insulated windows air penetrating through outlets do those walls face the wind? Is the stat located next to a heat supply?

Home owner's manual? Troubleshooting section. Gas or electric?
If gas, pilot light may be out, or other gas controls. Are you sure you have gas supply? Do you have other Gas appliances so you can check? Furnace needs power for controls, fan and thermostat. Are you sure you have electric power to the furnace? Does the thermostat have a fan switch? If so turn it on and see if the fan turns on. If it does not turn on you may have a circut breaker poped. or some other reason power to the furnace is not working.

SHUT THE POWER OFF TO THE FURNACE, REMOVE THE THERMOSTAT FROM THE THERMOSTAT SUB BASE TAKE THE WIRE THAT IS ON THE R TERMINAL AND THE WIRE THAT IS ON THE W TERMINAL AND CONNECT THEM. TURN THE POWER BACK ON. IF THE FURNACE COMES ON AND WORKS FINE THEN ITS IN THE THERMOSTAT.

See if you can locate the control board. There should be an automotive push in fuse on it. It should be a small amp fuse around 3-5 amps. Check it and change if needed. You should be able to see if it is blown or not just by looking if you don't have access to a multi-meter.
The control board is usually located in the blower compartment. Thank you.

The furnace wont turn on even though it says it is


not all digital thermostats are compatible with the manufacturers circuit control boards in the furnace. Hunter has had this problem several years ago. Other than that you may have miss wired the unit. usually the furnace is used as backup heat (during defrost) or emergency heat if your heat pump konks out. Are you switching to emergency heat for a furnace call?

Dellllllllllluxe programmable thermostat chronotherm plus iv


Does your thermostat have batteries. What is the brand of furnace and model # . Does the furnace have a pilot light or is it electronic ignition. if you need heat you can take thermostat of wall and take wires that are labeled r and w and wire nut them together to see if furnace comes on. Make sure you turn breaker off to furnace first before you take thermostat off the wall. If furnace comes on after you turn power back on after you connect those two wires together then you will probally need new thermostat. If not you have a problem with your furnace. If you have any questions after you try this feel free to ask any more questions.

Goodman heater won't come on


I would suspect if there is no power to the R terminal on your thermostat that the power is off at the furnace, or the 24 volt control transformer is bad. Check from R to C on the transformer for voltage with a meter with the power on to the furnace. If you have no power reading of 24-28 volts between R & C replace the transformer.
