Payne gas heater blower is making a thumping noise

The blower is making a thumpering noise when it is rotating. The problem started on it's own. Sounds like the blower needs some oiling but is says that it doesn't need any oiling ever. Help?

TURN OFF ALL POWER TO FURNACE!
CHECK THAT POWER IS TURNED OFF!
Check inside blower for any foreign item/trash/animal.
If this does not solve the problem get it fixed NOW before it cost you a LOT more!

My Payne furnace is NOT producing the desired heat anymore. Any ideas?


Hello, it could be shutting down on it's high limit switch due to a dirty air filter, dirty blower wheel, weak blower motor. Usually this would cause the furnace to shut down before it reaches the desired temp.

If it makes the noise before the blower comes on it would be the exhaust fan. If it makes the noise when the blower comes on then I would say either the blower motor or bearings to the fan.

Furnace blower does not turn on


Pat, look for any way to add a few drops of 3-in-1 electric motor oil to the shaft ends. You may find a few small plastic removable plugs where you can drop a few drops into. Get the numbers off the oval shaped capacitor and replace it as soon as possible. Inspect all wires and sand all contacts one at a time to make sure wires go back on original spades. If it continues, you may need to replace the fan relay. Good luck to you!

Wont stay lit after 20 min with blower on


As a licensed plumber I will recommend now that you don't touch the heater. Gas is dangerous and leaks aren't easily found.

Everytime a gas heater is serviced the tradesman needs to do a gas check to see if all is working well. There are too many things that can go wrong, from a small gas leak to burnt gas leaking, all of which are lethal.

I can tell you how to fix it, but I won't, because it is too dangerous.

Getting a repair man will cost you, but not getting one may cost you your health or your life.

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.
