Bad sequencer or fan relay?

Nordyne electric furnace. T-stat replaced last year. Fan comes on when set to auto in A/C mode but fan will not come on when t-stat is set to heat. Is this a bad sequencer or fan relay. This is a Nordyne E2EH-015HA model.

Blower fan continually runs


It may be but the fan control may be set to turn off at to high a temp, or theres a short between ;r; and g at the stat or furnace or sequencer, IF it runs through it. A limit or rollout switch may have failed but this will keep the unit from firering. Check for a manual blower switch that may be on. At stat it should be at auto and alsso at the fan control. A stuck relay is always possible,

I have a coleman evcon electric furnace. The blower fan runs constantly, the switch is in auto and the fans runs even when the thermostat is shut off.


Most likely on that particular electric furnace you have a fan sequencer that is closed (stuck shut). It is the black relay that you are looking at when you take off the furnace cover to access your heat strips. You should have a red wire coming from the blower motor that plugs into the side of it. If you have a ohm meter turn power off and remove wire. Check resistance across the sequencer and it should read OL. If you have resistance across it, the relay is bad. Replace it.

Electric strips have what's called a Sequencer also called a stack relay it's a relay that brings on the fan and strips at the same time on a call for heat. If you have more than 5kw you will have more than one Sequencer in fact you will have one for every 5kw.(only the first one will bring on the fan) It could be your high limit making your unit stop heating before it reaches the temp set on the T-stat. Check and see if your getting proper air flow across the electric strips your filter could be dirty. If not remove the cover from your T-stat and take the red and white wires off and twist them together this will bring on the heat then just watch the unit for about an hour if no problems then you have a bad T-stat. If the unit does cut off and the fan seems to be blowing fine you might have a bad high limit switch.

hope this helps........

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.

Bryant-Carrier Furnace Fan Stays On


I suspect a bad fan relay or bad fan control. Maybe the longer the control or relay is in the on position the more chance of it sticking on.

Fan will come on for heat(auto), but not for AC or set to ON


You have a blower relay in the furnace that's probably bad. In the heat mode the blower is on a temperature relay, in cooling mode the blower has to come on immediately so there is another relay for cooling. The green wire on the thermostat feeds that relay, so if you go to the furnace and shut the power off and find the green wire from the thermostat that feeds that relay and replace it, being careful to mark all the wires before removing them, also the relay terminals have numbers for identification.

I have a nordyne elec furnace just put in a new heat sequencer


You need to check the low voltage side to see if the t-stat is calling for heat. If it is, it is either the sequencer or a fuse to the heating elements (older model). But most likely the squencer. If you have a meter, you can check to see what side of the sequencer is burnt. Could also be a relay depending on the model number. If you get me the model number, I can send you a copy of the wiring diagram for the unit. This is the brand that I deal with.

Fan relay or sequencer.


If it were the sequencer, the heat wouldn't come on at all but the fan would blow. It's the fan relay but it could be the t-stat again. If you get a power surge when the unit is running, it can short out that portion only but typically, it will short out either the heat or the cool side depending on what is running not just the fan.

Nordyne electric furnace heats up but fan won't come on when set to auto. Is it a relay switch. Have installed a new thermostat.


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.

Furnace will not turn on in Auto mode thermostat


It sounds like you T-Stat is messed up. Look in your manual to see if there is set up instructions. If not I would change the T-Stat.
