Question about Coleman Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a coleman electric furnace for a mobile home. It is 8 years old and I have been having problems with the blower motor. IT was giving me problems and would only come on every once in a while. Now the heating elements are getting hot but the blower motor wont kick on. It sounds like it wants to but it wont. Any help would be appreciated.Thank you.

Most likely your motor is bad from your discription sounds like bearings. try giving it a spin with power off. If it feels TIGHT and wont turn to easly Bearings are dry might be able to free up w lite oil NOT WD40 or other penatrant, this wont last but a day or 2. OIL is the real cure. If it turns try pulling themotor shaft out and pull up down on the shaft at same time. If your fan hits the motor front (shaft side) when pushed back or drags on the front whe pulled out too much THRUST. Need Motor. A little play is normal if its enough to make a noise CLICK CLACK when pulled OUT THEN UP & DOWN too much, and bearings are worn out need motor.
If it smells HOT... Proably need a motor. Although a mechanical problem bearings loose or tight can also cause a HOT SMELL it could be electical. Check and if you change motor change capicator too.
PLEASE return and grade me accordingly. If unclear or need more I need to Know more.  THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK.

We have a Coleman Electric Furnace Serial # AOL6042086, Model # AHP36C3XH21A and the fan runs constantly, will not shut off. We have replaced the thermostat and just replaced the control board. We h


I wish I was a furnace expert but I will give a push in the right direction. When a gas/electric fan runs it has two speeds. When you turn on the FAN ON switch it should run at the slower speed. If it doesn't turn on or turn off again when you turn it back you have a wiring problem or a thermostat problem. Make sure the thermostat is compatible with your unit and wired properly (on both ends). The other time the fan runs is "in session" when heat or cooling is applied to the system. It should run until the system finishes the cycle then a bit more (30 seconds or 1 minute) to blow the treated air completely through the ducts. If it doesn't stop then you may have a bad fan time delay or relay. Check parts for your model and various appliance repair site online.

Blower motor will not come on


If the blower motor has correct voltage and not running it can be a capacitor, its about $5 to try it, otherwise a new fan motor is required. 22296134-wil0gxehsfojcry3vcxysbjd-5-0.png

Loud blower on my Coleman Furnace


Usually a noisy blower motor is a bad bearing. The motors now have oil impregnated bearings and you can't oil them, you have to replace them.

I have a 1998 Fleetwood mobile home with a Coleman electric furnace. I am doing a roof replacement. Is the ventilation motor/blower/control board on top of the roof necessary. If not, i want to remove the...


If the motor was there originally I would not remove it as it means something that can harm the occupants (gases, heat, etc) has to be expelled from the mobile home using that vent motor.

My furnance is acting up you turn it on it clicks on then lights the flame gets big then seconds later the flames go out and the blower kicks on what could be the problem ive had several people look at it...


If the fan takes too long to come on, the high temp limit may be opening. Could be a defective limit, hard to say without more info. Another possibility is a mis-adjusted heat anticipator. A normal setting would be around .45 amp. The heat anticipator is inside the cover of the thermostat (older, analog style). Good luck.

Coleman forced air furnace blower


Rmove the two screws holding the blower in place and slide it out. With the power off, rotate the wheel and inspect for debris or an impingement. If everything turns easy, you have a bad motor or start capacitor. If you have rubbing, adjust the wheel. If the motor will not turn, replace it.

Heater blower motor cycles on and off (frequently). I have a class 2 LR95329 Honeywell Thermostat


The clicking noise is a relay or switch of some sort. You are right about that. I have 2 questions. 1) does the thermostat have a mercury bulb in it? 2) when the fan shuts off and on, does the burner stay on?
