SOURCE: BLOWER FAN WONT SHUT OFF WHEN THERMOSTATE IS OFF

The compressor coming on when the contact is pushed is o.k. they all do that. As for the blower fan not shutting off, some brands (Payne for example) the heating fan relay is a n.c. (normally closed ) relay. so if the time delay relay or thermal link are bad or not connected, the fan will blow even when it is turned off.

Continuos running blower


hi! there,
blower auto shutting off and on is dependent to thermostat setting,if the thermostat acquired the temperature set it will shut of your blower,checking thermostat performance switch off unit, set this to a lower setting 1 or 0 switch on this should not runof course,if you set up this to 200 this will run until temperature reached to 200 it will stop.when you set up to 1 or 0 and the blower run thermostat is defective.
fan blower relay, if the 3 contactor is short or permanently engage while themostat reached acquired temperature your blower will still running,defenitely relay is defective.relay is dependent to thermostat switching,it supply holding coil terminal is to lock the 3 contactor to supply source to your blower.
so two common option while your blower run continously
1. shut off breaker, disconnect thermostat on two leads,its like a switch.then switch on breaker and run unit.
observe if run, your relay is defective,it was shorted on 3 contactor.
thermostat is the key to run your blower.
2. if the blower not run when you switchn onunit,then switch off again and try to short or connect the two lead using alligator clip on both side,or have it clip the terminals,then switch on again if the blower run,your themostat is defective,the high volatile of filler bulb was leak it always switch on,no play at all to off and on.
have a nice day,don't forget to rate me,thank's
ideas came from actual and theoritical analysis base on experienced and my study of industrial intrumentation.this will guide you and help you,if you understant flow of current in circuit.
have a nice day

Goodman a/c blower fan will not shut off


Unhook the thermostat wires on the furnace. If the blower shuts off then your problem is either the thermostat or the thermostat wires. If it contiues to run check you high limit switches next. If all else fails you most likely have a bad blower relay. On most modern furnaces the blower relay is part of the circuit board.
Good luck

Main limit switch


I am providing some information, but I encourage you to have a furnace technician look at your furnace. The reason is; the limit switch trips when there is a problem that may present a fire or combustion hazard. I've seen these switches go bad, but not very often. Usually they are tripping because the plenum is sooted up and excessive heat builds in the combustion chamber. This is common in older furnaces that have pilot flames- the flame runs all year and soot deposits in the plenum, plugging the air flow through the combustion chamber after years of use.

The limit switch is a safety control switch located on the furnace just below the plenum. If the plenum gets too hot, the limit switch shuts off the burner. It also shuts off the blower when the temperature drops to a certain level after the burner has shut off. If the blower runs continuously, either the blower control on the thermostat has been set to the ON position or the limit control switch needs adjustment. Check the thermostat first. If the blower control has been set to ON, change it to AUTO; if the blower control is already on AUTO, the limit switch needs adjusting.

To adjust the switch, remove the control's cover. Under it is a toothed dial with one side marked LIMIT; don't touch this side. The other side of the control is marked FAN. There are two pointers on the fan side; the blower goes on at the upper pointer setting and turns off at the lower pointer setting. The pointers should be set about 25 degrees apart. Set the upper pointer at about 115 degrees Fahrenheit and the lower one at about 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Blower fan keeps shutting on/off,


Your blower fan turning on and off shows your thermostat is working. I am willing to bet you have the fan in the automatic condition. Check for a sticking contactor at the outside unit.
