    the t-stat has been installed for a while. Asked the question at www.mobilehomerepair.com, and was told it was a bad sequencer. Don't know which one to get. Thanks for any help.

If the fan runs in the ON setting then you have a bad fan relay for the heat mode.
Did you install the t-stat before or after the problem?
If after, you have a bad fan relay.

    Is this gas or electric heat?

    Is this a digital thermostat?

    If digital did you select the correct type heat setting on the t-stat?

Can not get fan on to turn on. All else fine. heat only furnace. No air conditioning...only air circulation.I used to set it on "Cool" and "Fan On"and get air to circulate. Do I need new thermostat?


Since you have two thermostats that operate the heating unit and the fan, and the fact that neither will turn the blower on, I would suspect the furnace/ air handler. Turn the thermostat to heat and see if the heat and the fan comes on, if it does operate normally in heat, the fan relay or the high speed on the blower is most likely the culprit. (If the furnace is equipped with a circuit board, the fan relay is integral to the board, if it an older furnace it has a separate fan relay). If it does not operate normally in the heating mode, verify power to the furnace, see if the flame comes on, if it does: the fan motor, circuit board or the fan relay are most likely the cause. hope this helps!

Fan will not come on when it's set in auto mode


If your thermostat is being used with an electric heating system and the fan does not start in heating mode on auto; remove the thermostat from the subcase on the wall and check for a switch on the back of the thermostat. A lot of electronic thermostats have a switch on the back that says electric/heat pump and gas/oil. If you have electric heat or heat pump you need to switch it to this side. Usually this is set at the factory for gas/ oil. Gas/oil furnaces have built in means of bringing on the fan and electric/ heat pumps are brought on by the thermostat.

Why heater fan will not come on?


Wish I knew how old your furnace is. Let me answer your question directly. In the heat mode the fan runs independently from the air conditioning fan relay. Its either brought on by time or temperature. An old furnace will use a fan and limit control that uses a coil to sense the heat exchanger temperature and turn the fan on or off. Newer furnaces use a timer on a circuit board. 20 years or newer Ill bet its a timer board. Follow the blower motor wires back to the component and ill bet that's the culprit. Hope it helps. Good luck.

Nordyne furnace FEH017HA-04 the fan runs full force when the ac is on but half speed when the furnace kicks in


That is probably normal if it is electric heat to slow the air over the heating elements. Even some gas units do this. Check to see if the unit blower motor has wires for multiple speeds.

Auto fan does not start electric furnace


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.
If there is not enough heat, raise the thermostat setting five degrees to see if it turns the unit on. If the unit still does not generate enough heat, check the comfort controls . Clean or replace a dirty filter, clean the blower assembly (see the Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide), and make sure that all registers are open and not blocked.
If the furnace turns on and off repeatedly (cycles), clean or replace the filter; and clean the blower assembly (see Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide).
If the furnace is noisy, make sure access panels are mounted and fastened securely; spray squeaking belts with fan-belt dressing and replace worn or damaged belts; adjust the blower belt; lubricate motor and blower oil ports.
If the element does not heat, refer to the Heating Element Fix-It Guide for guidance.

I can't get my furnace fan to stop running-even in the off position


Your thermostat has AUTO and MANUAL for fan Make sure it is set for AUTO. If it is set for AUTO and the heat is off and cooled down AND the fan still runs then that will be a bad relay. If yours is newer then the board will need to be replaced. If yours is an older model you may need to replace the fan and limit switch8fe474e.jpgThis mechanical switch works on rise in plenum temp. It turns on the fan a around 110 f and it shuts down the fan at 90f. Newer furnaces use timers and relay on the IC board.

I have an intertherm electric furnace FEH-A020, with multispeed blower installed when A/C added. My problem is blower operation. at the end of the cooling season with fan set to auto operation the fan ran...


The model of T-stat you gave comes up as a discontinued model on Honeywell's web site, but it looks to be a manual stat that type of stat would have to be wired with a summer winter switch with electric heat, allowing it to turn on the fan with a call for heat. If yours is a programmable T-stat you would need to select electric heat or in the installers set up change the default setting for fan from unit controls fan in heat to thermostat controls fan.
