Question about Coleman Heaters

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.

I have a coleman evcon furnace that wont work. The electrical box green light is not on at all so it cannot pinpoint what the error is. Any thoughts?

Hi, I would just make sure you have power to the furnace. Check breakers or look for the power switch on the electrical box. Also, some mobile homes have a wall switch that cuts power to the furnace.

Gas furnace; flame will not stay on

Clean the flame sensor with a green scotch brite pad. Check all ground connections from the circuit board to the furnace cabinet. Check for a proper ground to the electrical box. Make sure polarity has not been reversed.

Coleman furnace -- fan runs, ingniter won't light,

The chances are that the furnace was running when the power went out. This will cause the high limit switch to cutout and needs to be manually reset.
You will find that switch in the blower compartment near the blower. Usually somewher near the highest point of the cabinet.
Push the little red button firmly till it clicks.
When the power goes out while the furnace is running the heat builds up because the blower shuts down immediately and causes this limit switch to cut out.
If you have a electric tester you can also follow the low voltage circuit till you find the open switch. Ther is usually a wiring schematic on the door cover of most furnaces.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

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.
