SOURCE: furnace problem

The problem is most likely in the control module of the roof air unit. Dometic uses the thermostat to activate and deactivate a relay in the control board of the roof ac unit whiich is just visible when you remove your air intake screen. The two blue with white stripe wires are the furnace control wires.

The furnace turns on and off by the opening and closing of relay. Most likely, the furnace control relay is stuck in the on position. On the thermostate, remove the fur wire and see if the furnace quits afrer it cycles down...it does not quit right away. With the termostat out of the loop, if the furnace does not shut down, the problem is in the control box. They are not hard to replace but you must be careful with the live wiire from the 110 ciucuit breaker. If you are not comfortable with the repair, take it to a dealer. The part number is on the assembly box. They need to know if you have the heat srip option or whatever othert options our Roof AC has. If the furnace still runs with the blue/white wires disconnected, the furnace wires are shorted somewhere between the furnace and the AC control unit.

SOURCE: ATWOOD MOBILE FURNACE RUNS WHEN IT WANTS/

Check your furnace for power. will be 4 wires. power ground and 2 thermostat wires. Check for power at the time delay relay, if you have power there check for power going in the fan motor, if power in motor wire, motor is bad. If no power in motor wire and power going to circuit board take the 2 thermostat wire apart and wrap the 2 together comimg from the thermostat. Fan will stat in about 30 seconds. If it does you need a control kit in the ac. But sounds to me like you have a furnace problem.

SOURCE: I have a DuoTherm BriskAIr 13.5K BTU. The Dometic

If you look at control box at roof unit, they usually use a separate set of wires for furnace. See what colors they are attached to at harness to thermostat. Some just follow other harness, and come out at thermostat. (bypass control box) Once you've determined which 2 they are, join them together & see if furnace starts, as it should. If it does, thermostat is faulty. If not, pull outside cover off & check voltages at furnace. I'm guessing by furnace model that your unit is approx 30 ft , but if it's a park model, you may have 24 volt system on furnace or 12 volt. Another way of confirming is to go to back of furnace where air intake grille is inside your unit, and locate 2 blue wires going to furnace & remove whatever wires are attached to them & connect them together. Furnace should start up.

SOURCE: furnace will not start. a/c seems to work ok. i

ok don't go off the last guys answer.. ur heater runs through the ac unit but is a 12 volt issue. check your fuses at the board. if not that then your heater ignitor board needs to be replaced... or it has a fail switch on the heater...

Go to Bryantrv.com and click on the Service Manuals link. It sounds like he missed a wire hooking it back up. There are usually 3 wires, red for hot, connected to the furnace and also a small blue wire with a red stripe, another small blue wire connected to varying colors but comes from the thermostat and a ground, usually yellow. There is a relay on the fan side of the furnace and a thermal safety on the back side, under the burner. The fan gets it's power from this relay and the furnace will not run until the fan is turning. It's common for the relay to go bad but I've only had to replace on thermal fuse in the last 12 years.

Furnace blower won't turn on


You may need to replace the sail switch. It senses the fan speed and when it connects the gas valve should open and furnace should fire up.

Outside heating unit runs all the time


Usually when the furnace blower motor runs all the time
The limit switch or rollout switch is usually open or bad.
The furnace board is seeing that one of those switches is open, so it brings the blower on to try to get the heat out of the combustion chamber area, so the switch will close. But if the switch is bad and won’t close, the furnace board will keep the blower running continuously.

Intertherm heating


My heating unit is blowing cool air. The thermostat will start the blower when the unit is turned on at the thermostat, but the air isn't hot. But,when I turn the unit on at the furnace/blower using the "Fan On" button, I can see the heating element heat up. After the blower starts the heating element does out. What could be the problem?

What part do we replace first?


Door safety switch. You are sure you have power to furnace? jump out the G and R terminals on the furnace control board or turn your thermostat to Fan On to check. Make sure the door safety switch is in the closed position. Fan should come on. No fan, no power to unit. Check Emergency switch, circuit breaker and there may be a fuseable link in the wiring somewhere either above the unit or a condensate safety switch. Get power to the unit. Also check to see if there is a small fuse in the wiring inside the furnace or on the circuit board.
