Your Furnace is short cycling...cutting out too soon. I would call for service on this one. If it has a flame sensor and you know where it is, clean or replace the sensor. If there is a air/sail switch, make sure it is free to float/swing.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Dryer taking hours to dry a load

Hello Friend, Your solution is simple. It sounds like your dryer is working properly, and your actual problem is a blockage somewhere in your 4 inch exhaust tubing. Check it and make sure it is not clogged up with excessive lint. Also if your tubing is clear you need to check your connection where it travels thru the wall etc. It would be a good idea to find the actual location where it exits to the ouside and check for good airflow. Your dryer is equiped with a safety thermistat and if you are not getting the proper exhaust flow the burner will cut off and restart in the manner that your's is doing. I Hope I have helped you, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool LGR7646JQ0 gas dryer..the burner shuts off?

Sounds like you have a bad warp switch. Also could have a gas valve going bad.

SOURCE: flame turns on only when dryer is cold, runs for

The gas valve coils are bad. When they heat up they are losing resistance to stay on.
Turn off the gas. Unplug the machine. Remove the front panel. The gas valve will be in the front right hand corner. Remove the gas valves and replace them with new valves. Please note how the coils orient on the gas valve.

SOURCE: gas dryer not heating up. We can see glow of

The problem is the dryer coils are failing. They tend to fail as they heat up. Here is a link that should help troubleshooting a gas dryer.

My furnace works on ac and blows on ac but on heat it does not blow but i hear a humming sound coming from the furnace


Most furnace operating on Oil or gas will heat the combustion chamber before starting fan to prevent cold air draft at start-up, can last a minute or two. Eiter the main flame does not come on or the chamber thermostat have fail. Try to modify fan option on room thermostat from auto to on. Cold air coming out: burner problem or no more oil or gas, warm air: burning chamber thermostat problem, leave room thermostat fan option to on until repair.

Boy it sounds like a high limit opening up and shutting off the gas valve. It won't shut off the blower because it wants to cool off thge furnace. Check for any restriction in the air delivery system, filter, registers. Check for blockage of the exhaust vent.

Our furnace seems to run on idle constantly . we are using more oil but not electric if i tap on the box it stops but starts again a few minutes later??


We need to get a few details cleared up:

Is it the Furnace (Oil burner) that is running, (on idle you called it..)
or is it the FAN that is running?
What are you tapping, that shuts off what?
Is the fan that blows the air around the home shutting off, or the burner?
(When the burner is running, there is a loud roar!-- the fan should be much quieter..)

If it is the fan that is running,-- I might ask, is the air coming from the registers too cold?-- for with the fan running, you are getting all the heat from the oil that was burned. But naturally, you don't want it to be uncomfortable.. So-- you can open the cover on that Fan control switch, and raise the temperature at which the fan turns ON and OFF..

Let us know what you find.

We use the remote to turn the hunter fan on and during the night the fan shuts off by itself. Is it in the remote? What can we do?


There is two things it can be. It can be the fan motor getting hot causing it to shut down. it has a thermoprotector switch that shuts down the electric motor, to stop from burning up the fan motor.And there is also a adjustment to run the fan for 2 minute and shut it down, pause 2 minute and start back up. there are 4 to 5 settings to chose from. anyway i hope this is helpfull to you. and ps you can clean the motor with air hose blow it both ways to loosen all the dust. later sawdust46

The fan comes on but the burner won't kick on and then shuts off


Check your fuel line for cracks and also the air line. Most likely is the CAD flame sensor, easy to change and only 3 bucks or so. Might also want to check all of your filters. Mine was doing the same thing and it was the high heat limit control and the flame sensor.

150000 1974 national gas forced air furnance does the fan come on the same time the gas comes on. ...


not familiar with that particular model but on virtually every type and style of furnace i have worked on in the last 21 years. the fan is delayed. usually the burner lights then 3 to 5 minutes later after the heat exchanger has gotten nice and hot the fan comes on and blows nice and hot air. on old furnaces there was and is a switch usually on the upper right side of the furnace bulkhead that has a spring like device that heats up and rotates till it makes a set of contacts that turn the fan on. if it gets to hot the set of contacts breaks the power to the gas valve and shuts down the burner. as the furnace cools down on shut off there is a third set of contacts that open to turn off the fan so you don't get a draft. sometimes the stat can be wired up wrong, and it will bring the fan on right away ,and air will be cool and drafty till furnace catches up.
