SOURCE: I have a 12/2 (black/white/ground)

The switch that you have works like 3 seperate switches. most of these switches will have gold screws
on one side and silver screws on the other side, lets say that the left is gold and the right is silver, and
the switch may also have a green screw for ground. your 12/2 with ground is your main hot, you may
want to mark it with a piece of tape, so you know it's the incoming hot. the ground off your hot will tie,
to the green screw on switch and continue and tie to your vent light which should also have a ground
the white coming off the hot is your neutral, it will go straight to your white or whites on your heater.
the black hot wire at your switch will go to each gold terminal on one side of the switch,there are two
ways you can do this, go to one side and just run a jumper, or put one wire on each gold screw and
tie in to your hot-black wire with a wire nut. now for the switch legs, you will need to run from your, switch
to your heater either another pair of 12/2s or a 12/3, each side of the switch that has one silver screw,
it's easier with a 12/3 normally a 12/3 will have a red,black,white,and ground.
top switch red to red on heater,black to black on light and the white blue on the vent,so from your switch
to the heater you would have to run a12/2 you would not use the black only the white and ground.
remember the white-neutral coming from the switch will be tied to all the whites at the vent,light,heater
except for the 10/3. the 10/3 is used stricktly for the switch legs. good luck!

How do I wire a induce fan motor


Induced fan motors on older units are wired through the high limit safety on the stack - in series. When the furnace calls for heat, the induced fan motor comes on and after a time the furnace will light.

Older units have a temp switch in the stack that rotates to bring on the burners and blower motor. . When there is a call for heat, the induced draft fan motor comes on and then the burners will light.

After the heat exchanger is warmed up the limit switch will bring the blower motor on. That's basically how it works - there are two circuits - one for the induced draft motor and the burners and the other for the blower and high limit.

New units have a plug on the board you just plug in.

Lower oven loss of power


I'd check the control switch first, and the wireing and connections.

I put new fan motor or heat pump now runs all time and doesat seem to heat well but line set going into a coil infurnace is hot


I would check the fan relay and especially the sequencer. I recently came across a problem with an older sequencer which had come partially apart and allowed the thermo disk to keep the fan running continuously. The sequencer controls not only the fan relay (24 volt), but the heating strips(220 volt) as well. Make sure all power is off to the unit and verify. Make a wiring diagram and take several pictures if necessary. Replace sequencer with only an Identical unit, even if you have to order it. The newer sequencers have two metal straps to prevent this problem from occurring.

An came on by itself and won't cut off


If your indoor unit is electric and not gas or oil, then your problem is either in the control wiring or a relay. With your circuit breaker OFF: Start by removing the wire on "G" at your control board. If you have an older model, there might be a wire nut connection for your thermostat wires.......disconnect the wire nut with the green wire which is the most commonly colored wire used to control the fan. Tape off the end of the wire to prevent it from shorting......turn the breaker on. If the blower continues to run, you have a problem with a relay. If the unit is heating while the fan is running, you most likely have a stuck heating sequencer. If there is no heat, you most likely have a stuck fan relay.

Here is a video to help you identify heat relays/sequencers and fan relays. Having a stuck fan/blower relay is a fairly common problem. Often, you can gently tap the relay to "free" it and stop the fan. However, once they start "sticking", they will continue to do so.
I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you, moving forward. :-)

The bracket clip that holds the fan down broke. Is there a fix or do I buy a new fan?


If you are innovative enough one can improvise by simply hold the fan to the heat sink with copper wire in case only one bracket is broken. The fan only requires to be on the heat sink to remove heat from the processor. Otherwise the fan & heat sink as one sealed unit only. Else try out the junk yard and see if you can hunt for one where PC's are dumped !

However if you want your PC to last for 2-3 yrs more, trouble-free, then my recommendation would be to replace the fan+heat sink unit, 'cos if the heat conducting paste between the processor & heat sink, if disturbed cannot be replaced to its original capacity & the processor will overheat and the PC will auto shut down repeatedly, till the processor is damaged permanently! .............................sodeep

I am attempting to replace an old bathroom exhaust fan with a Broan 680 fan/light. I am having a problem with the wiring. There are 2 wall switches for the light and fan. The existing wiring has red,...


The red and the black are the hot wires. One will be the fan and one is the light. The white is the 'common' for both fan and light.
It sounds like the new fixture has got one hot for both the light and fan, they will both run all the time from one switch. This is the blue wire. Hook it to the red or the black, which ever one comes from the switch you want to control it. Hook the white to the white on the new fixture.
The green is just a ground. hook it to the new fixture green or ground terminal. Cap or the black or the red that you don't use. It won't be need for the new one. The switch that it comes from will not control anything now.

When we turn on our central A/C the fan comes on & the compressor comes on for about 10 seconds & quits


Sounds like a compressor problem to me.Have you tried a hard start kit?This increases the starting torque.Put an amprobe around the common wire to the compressor and see the amperage draw is on start up.It sounds to me the compressor is cutting off on the internal overload.This is located inside the compressor on the common winding.There shoud be a tag on the condenser housing that gives you the info on the unit.Look for:FLA-full load amps,which is normal running amps and LRA-locked rotor amps,which tells you if the compressor is locked(bad).This will be a high number.If this is the case the compressor will have to be replaced.If it is an older A/C,I'd replace the condensing unit. And if possible, replace the indoor unit also.You'll be pleased with the results.Hope this helps. Gregg
