Had blackout and now furnace won't start


The biggest items to check after blackout are the circuit boards and the transformer. Also if the furnace was running when it happened, the unit could trip on limit...BUT if this happened the blower would run nonstop with no activity of heat. If no blower, you will need to start with 120v to furnace and then 24v from transformer.

Furnace will run, put out heat, turn off and doesnt start again.


What is model # & serial # of this furnace, it may have a diagnosis led indicator light located on the control board, behind bottom door of furnace which will blink and tell you a fault code. Also check furnace filter, make sure its clean, check through out the house to see if all registers are open and not blocked by any objects, make sure cold air return grill is not blocked, the unit could be over heating and shutting off on high limit, good luck.

We have a dayton gas furnace model #3E463A. thought the control box was gone. got new one we furnace starts up the power goes on, fan starts no green pulsing light on control no ignition


When your furnace starts...the Ventor motor(exhaust fan) starts up....within a short time (seconds) the Pressure switch closes proving that the Fan is indeed running and the vent is not blocked...if this doesnt happen the furnace will not poweer the ignitor or fire at all....Check the vent pipe outside and look for obstructions or dirt on the screen inside the pipe...the condensate from the fuirnace may not be draining at all...due to plugged condensate drain lines...find this tube coming out of the furnace front...bottom of upper compartment usually , and pull it off the tap....if water starts coming out then your drain is plugged downstream of the furnace.

Furnace runs OK, but blower runs again a few seconds later


Could be a defective thermostat in the plenum.
When a gas furnace shuts down the fan(blower) will run until the plenum cools to the safe range. Usually 1 and 1/2 minutes.
Intermittent operation is a defective thermostat or relay.

Furnace runs but won't ignite.


Error code 12 is blower on after power up. Meaning: after you turn on power to the furnace for aprox. 60-90 seconds the blower will run. The blower should then shut down and the furnace should go through the start up process, providing that the thermostat is set for and calling for heat. If the furnace fails to start after blower shut down there should be a new fault/error code. However if the blower continues to run longer then 90 seconds and continues with the same fault code more then likely the circuit board is bad. Please let me know if this was helpful and give me a rating. Good luck.
