Isn't it really a GAS furnace? From your video picture it is. Now, for the problem: First, is there no manufacturer or model number on this furnace? Next, Is the igniter unit functioning? Is the gas coming out under the heater plates?

Fan won't blow on ac, but works on furnace


The fans heat speed is low speed and the cool speed is high speed. High speed is controlled by the fan relay normally open switch, the low speed is controlled by the temperature delay or time delay.

Check the circuit board to see if the little 1 amp car fuse is blown, if it is replace it, if not, check to make sure the furnace is on and the door switch is engaged. if that doesn't work call a proffesional to come diagnose the furnace.

Furnace computer won't let furnace light


What is the model number? I have an SLP98 (installed on 11/29/2011).... and if I take the cover off the front of the furnace the panel that has the fancy "Lennox" badge on it) you will see two clear round windows about the size of a half dollar (one high on the furnace box and one lower on the blower box.) If you look downward into the window on the blower box you can see a red LED display that will sometimes flash error codes like E228 (one character at a time). If your model has something like this, let me know. I've done some DIY fixes recently out of necessity....and their easy.....and several technicians confessed they didn't know much, if anything, about the newer high effieciency Lennox gas furnaces.

Have a carrier 92 furnace. electric motor will not kick on...just hums. red light on circuit board flashes...help?


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.
However you can have a missing 1 phase , test with the VOM, for to measure voltage. Or motor need repair for winding trouble,bearing.If you do not have enough experience call some electrician.
God bless you

Intertherm Electric Furnace model E3EB-023H. The blower won't turn. Unless I begin to turn it but even then it won't reach its full capacity. What can I do to fix it?


if it tries when you spin it even if does not come up full either the motor has problems or less likely the voltage to it is down some.

suspect the motor itself.

When I tried to light my furnace, the electrical wires from the thermostat don't spark all the time, therefore my furnace won't stay lighted. What can I do to fix this?


Is this an older furnace where you have a pilot light? Are you saying the pilot light will not stay lit? If thats the case then likely you need a new thermal couple. That is what the pilot light keeps hot while it stays lit. It is a safety device that is there so your furnace will not come on if there is no pilot light present. Very common. Hardware store item. Need Furnace's make and model #'s.
If this is an electronically controlled furnace, you will need a service call.

Problem with Goodman furnace electric ignition


Power is there, or no lights would blink. Steady blinking or flashing three times, stop, three times Etc

Main gas valve won't stay on when there is a call for heat from the thermostat


Open the front panel of the furnace to see the blinking light. It usually indicates a code based on the number of flashes. Check the inside of the panel for an electric diagram. You will find a troubleshooting chart. Match the code and find out the problem. Sometimes the troubleshooting chart can be found in your furnace manual. Good luck!
