Question about Heating & Cooling
When I turn up the thermostat I can hear clicking but the furnace doesn't come on. After I flip the breaker switches at my home electrical panel and pull out the connect switch and put it back it in the furnace will come on. I also have trouble with it cutting on during normal use just on occasion. It doesn't always do it. What could be wrong?
OK so its an all electric furnace no gas? I cant think of anything clicking on an electric furnace except the sequencers or the safety switches.
If this is whats your hearing then the fan should definitely be running.
Feel carefully around the fan motor (I assume this is in a mobile home). See if you detect any heat coming around the blower area close to the fan motor. If so the fan motor may be at fault or one sequencer may be out (the main one of course...) the thing is can you get the fan to come on by turning the auto switch on the thermostat (or if older model the Auto On switch on the furnace) to ON? If so you can "limp by and have heat til someone either checks it or you can go on deeper into it. but to go deeper you'll have to let me know you know where the elements are and that you have a volt meter. and feel comfortable using it especially on HOT wires.

If the vents do not come on, have a friend stand by the furnace. Turn off the heater, then turn it on again. Your friend should hear a loud click from the relay after you turn the thermostat on. If there is no sound of a relay clicking, the thermostat is probably broken. good-day !
