I assume this is a gas furnace? If so its most likely your fan switch. This is set to come on after the "Chill" is gone on the furnace and go off a few moments after the flame cuts off. there are several different kinds but you will find it if you trace the wiring from the fan motor (usually the colored wire red, blue, or yellow and NOT the black or white or brown) goes to it. If the colors are hard to see use a good lite and some alcohol to clean them up some.

Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Good Luck.

After preheat the fan cuts in for 10 sec then cuts out, cuts in for 15 sec, then cuts out. this continues to longer interviles. I have replaced computer box twice and have spent hundreds and problem


Try Googling the problem. Who have you paid so far, someone from the gas company, or a private technician? Was the technician from an Intertherm dealer? I would think a dealer would have qualified techs.

Furnace lights blows heat in cycle, pops sensor on blower and continuosly blows air until button on sensor is pushed back in


If the sensor knocks the unit off and the the fan keeps blowing without a flame ,the limit (the sensor is a limit comptroller that turns off flame @ a set temp and allows the fan to run until the heat exchanger cools to @ set temp) has out lived its lifetime and needs to be replaced.the button is a manual reset that once reset would allow the unit to continue to run flame and blower at the same time after having been set once, if it is an ongoing problem and needs to be reset more than once then replace the limit control (sensor) in kind. (With the same mode and set-points for the limits)

With my thermostat on auto and on heat, and the furnace turns on, the fan will not turn on with it. If I switch the fan to on it will run after I repeat back and forth from auto to fan on several times...


Well, here is the deal: unless you rewired from two wire to multiple (usually 4 to 10 wires) wires, the fan cannot be controlled from the thermostat, even though the thermostat indicates that it can > it is a physical wiring and fan administration issue.

Unless you have a newer furnace, the fan is controlled by plenum temp. Works like this: burner turns on, no fan until the plenum temp reaches set temp,....then burner off, and fan keeps running until pelnum temp drops, and often the fan may kick on a few more times as this temp depletes.

The furnace is blowing warm air even if the thermostat low.


The only thing that tells the unit to come on and off is the thermostat so I would definatly say it is it. When you turn the system back on, does the a/c run normally? If it does, then it's the problem with the heating side of the tstat. Also, does the fan come on when you put it to on and then turn of when you switch it back to auto? If it does, then the system is working fine, its the t-stat. Let me know if you have any more problems.

Furnace won't kick on


Downstream of your fan discharge there is a little plastic assy. most likely that will have a pickup tube and a piece of vinyl or latex tubing attached. First check to make sure that the pick up tube and/or tubing does not have a restriction. If it is clean use an ohm meter to read resistance across the switch to verify it is operating.

Moter will not cut off


is the thermostat set on fan on? Be sure the thermostat fan switch is all the way in the auto position..If you have a circuit board with a g terminal that is a gas furnace. Turn power off remove and isolate the green wire then turn power on. Let me know if it still runs. If it does not the circuit board is the most reasonable problem
