I have a switch on the wall that controls the flame with a switch inside the fireplace. we would just leave the switch inside the fireplace off and use the wall switch. Now it dosent work with the wall...

you need to get wall switch and wire to this changed as it is impossible to test these for faults as can happen after a few hours of operating (usually to do with the heat of the fire place dso if it has a fan hopefully you are using it it'll keep components cooler in heater and stop things like this happening), but i'm assuming that cable to wall switch runs down side of heater or something and i'm guessing its got hot maybe melted to side of heater and may have damaged wall switch so i would replace both, this has really been the only problem i have had all year with heaters and its due to turning the fan off which you can do in some heaters that arn't entirly designed for heating, if you are heating with a gas heater its important to run fan no matter how noisey it may be and there not that noisey really just turn tv up i'd rather be warm through winter than hear my tv so i'd rather hear a fan than the news, most of the time it sounds more intresting anyway and i have heard of mechanics that have pulled out melted fans from heaters because they were off, i have found cables starting to melt too so its a safety issue too and lastley if your not running fan heat goes up flu waste of money so i think its important and would have maore than half of call outs less as it has been a problem with heaters with turning fan off, i may be wrong but i'm guessing this may be the problem and if you do use fan the cable to wall switch may be down side of heater making contact with a hot surface and melting causing problem i would also do switch aswell as heat could have damaged to as cable would have conducted heat to switch

Can't get unit to kickon

Sound like its the capicator you didn,t change! Match this up off the side plate of the motor.The capicator is a booster on start for the fan or we call it a pace maker for the fan motor!

I need to wire a 24 volt double pole double throw relay to operate a fan in a furnace parrell with a wood stove.

Your problem has really got me interested in what you are attempting to do. So are you looking to diable the FAU while the wood stove is heating or activate the blower motor for the FAU when the wood stove is hot?

I have a Charmglow model HBL-15SDLP/M20 electric heater. The rocker switch went bad on it and I can't find a replacement part anywhere. The manufacturer said they can't get replacement parts. The part...

The switch itself is a (double pole single throw ) 15 amp 250 volt /20 amp 125 volt.You can buy any switch like that.The hard part is trying to find the same size to fit the hole in the heater.

Fan capacitator size for Saxon 500 wood heater

The size is generally on the case of the capicator and is writtten in mfd or a kind of ufd or uf (the U stands for micro) F and FD = farads. The voltage rating is important but not nearly as mich as MFD. The voltage rating is how much voltage the capicator can stand before becoming critical. This capicator is usually mounted on the exterior of the motor.

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...

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.

Blower does not turn on

check to make sure your fan switch is touching the metal.. the fan switch is tiny (size of a dime) with two stake on wire conectors going to it... check to make sure the speed switch (looks like a dimmer switch) is sending power to the fan switch... if all that is a yes then remove fan switch and hold a lighter to the back of it.. should come on in 5 seconds with direct flame.. if you still have nothing replace fan switch..
