Old gravity Heater kicks off to early

I'm a novice at this, but I check the system over pretty well. I can't seem to find anything wrong except its about 60 years old. Its a Lennox GS42-60S Gravity Heater. It burns natural gas, not oil.
I opened up the fan controller box. When I twist the dial counter clockwise the unit lights up properly. The off is set at 100 - the on at 150 - th elimit at 200
Any ideas?
Is my unit running way to hot or is my fan controll dial burnt
Fixya didn;t have the manufacturer as an option or heaters for that matter, I choose AC as I'm hoping the HVAC guys are answering
Thanks

    So let me get this straight. you manually turn the fan control to engage the fan to start other wise it will not come on.. Right?

    And you was right in putting this problem in the a/c category

I recommend that you begin by calling your supplier of natural gas. They offer a free service whereby they will come to your home and check out your heater. They will also show you exactly how it operates. good luck.

When activated, the thermostat stays on for about 45 sec. and then kicks out indicating a gfi problem . . . this seems far too sensitive . . . can I override this in some manner?? Thanks, Wayne


You can replace the wall outlet with a GFI type and cut the ac cord end off and install a basic 3 prong for 120 volt system. AC unit controls don't like ground faults and should be corrected. The cord gfi may be going out.

AC unit not kicking on...


You need a "Y" terminal. "Y" is pretty standard on every heat pump. It is the wire that will energize the compressor contactor at the outdoor unit, allowing the compressor and condensor fan to run.

Fan motor will not come on


That thing connected to the capacitor is a booster for the compressor .But if the outside fan doesn't work , the compressor will shutt off on overload because the high pressure in the condenser coil.
First try to replace the capacitor in the condensing unit (it's the only one that works for the compressor and the fan motor) ,but if the fan doesn't start, you need to replace the fan motor.

Old Gravity Heater kicks off too soon


Those are pretty good settings. I might set the fan off to about 85 to get a bit more heat from it. Otherwise you're good. Please give me a fixya rating.

Heat Pump/Furnace Trip Circuit Breaker


My system will run for a short period and then suddenly trips the circuit breaker in the main panel for the heat pump.

I have a Goodman - 3 ton system about 8 - 9 yrs old. I'm being told that I need to replace the heat pump/air conditioner compressor?

What do you think?
