It might be. Boards can be purchased on ebay, amazon or any hvac supply house, but they aren't cheap. For less expensive products and non licensed people, get part # from the old board and shop ebay.

SOURCE: Electric furnace blows cold air before and after warm air.

It is normal. Your house has to go down a couple more degrees because the heat pump is not working. You can solve this by rewirng you thermostat. Take off the wire that goes to Y and tape off. Then take the wires that are marked w and e or w1 and put the wires to yellow. Do not run ac with it wired like this. If you need more information please post me back

SOURCE: Code 32 when wind blows

Hi and welcome to Fixya. I believe that the wind is affecting the draft. What I would recommend is to install a cap on the flue that is similar to a weather vane in that it rotates to block the wind from creating a downdraft in the flue. Some times depending on the direction and strength of the wind it will come up over the roof peak and then down the flue. A regular fixed cap may work too. You should be able to purchase one at your local hardware store. Please let me know if this was helpful. Good luck.

SOURCE: bryant furnance clicking, won't fire

try checking the pressure sensing switch,it has a tube that should run somewhere close to the inducer fan.sometimes this hose fills with liquids,and makes the units act funny.I don't know if you have a condensing unit or what.the furnace wont try to light if it cant tell the inducer motor is running.any induced draft unit will work this way.you can also do a temp. bypass of the pressure switch to make sure the contacts on it are closing just be sure your inducer fan is running,and you cant leave it like that its just a test.that is a safety feature you really need.

Pleasureway Traverse furnace fan runs when funace is off.


Bad/ stuck fan relay or temerature sensor is not shutting the fan off. Or there is a short on the low voltage fan control circuit. Check to see if the Green terminal is jumpered to the Red terminal at either the furnace control board of the 'stat, if not, ohm the wires with both ends off- I've seen installers accidently shoot a staple thru the wire and short the wires together more often than even I can believe! Hope this Helps! PS Some furnaces have fan switches inside the furnace- check for one and see if it's "on"- sounds too simple, but sometimes the "simplest" is the correct answer.

Tip

Gas Furnace Lights for 5 seconds and shuts off - it will do this 3 times


If the burners of your furnace light and go out after approximately 5 seconds, the problem is most likely with the Flame Sensor. The Flame Sensor will develop a light coating that will prevent it from sending a "proof" signal back to the main board. If the main board does not receive this "proof" signal, it will shut off the gas valve. After 3 attempts, it will lock out leaving only the draft inducer motor running. Here is a video demonstrating how to identify and clean the flame sensor to get your furnace back to running normally in only a few minutes.

If i hook my Aprilaire 400 Manual (not auto/digital) humidifier up straight to a 24v wall outlet instead of to the furnace, will it still work correctly? Or does it need to be powered by the furnace to...


Your humidifier is a bypass type. The only voltage needed is 24vac to open the water valve. Air only flows through the humidifier when the furnace blower is running, and the wet pad will add very little humidity if the furnace is not running and heating the air before flowing through the wet pad in the humidifier.
It is best the water valve is only energized when the furnace is running. Some furnaces have a connector on their control boards labeled HUM for this purpose. Test it's voltage when the furnace is running because some will output 110vac instead of 24vac you need.

My goodman furnace 80703 fan comes on ignitor glows burner starts , cuts off in 10 secs,furnace starts cycle again. home no heat


I am not a furnace tech but, there are several inputs to a gas valve. There must be an 1) electrical/mechanical indication that there is a draft fan running (to move potentially explosive gas so it doesn't accumulate), 2) adequate gas pressure to the valve, 3) the thermostat must be calling for heat 4) and electrical indication that there is an ignition source. In your scenario, you have the source of ignition, the gas valve is picking up the burner but the gas valve believes there is something missing so it shuts off the gas to the burner. In this case, I suppose you might not have enough gas pressure (is another gas appliance running or is the line to the furnace too small?), a thermocouple probably isn't the problem since the burner wouldn't pick up if the gas valve didn't believe the ignition source wasn't good enough. You could have a plugged chimney or exhaust pipe if it is direct vented since there is also a pressure switch that detects whether there is enough draft once the burner picks up. Really should call a furnace person especially if you don't have a carbon monoxide detector that you trust. If you think you are capable of continuing, you could jumper the various inputs the the gas valve one by one until the burner picks up and stays picked up. Whichever terminals you jumper that accomplish this, is the culprit. Look at the schematic on the side cover to the furnace for this information. Hope this helps...

Check your A/C condensate pan; it has a drain and drain line. Make sure the drain isn't obstructed and the drain line is clear. As far as the electric furnace, if you allow it to dry out thoroughly chances are nothing detrimental will have happened to it; especially if it's an older unit without the sensitive electronic boards on it.

It says that the cool program is running but no air is coming out of the vents


there are a few things to look at 1) Power is on at furnace and condenser
2) Switch sub base to fan on and see if you get air. If that works and if there is air great. If no air check the furnace to see if the filter is plugged and or if the cooling coil is frozen If all is clear try this. 3) Shut down main power either at breaker or switch to the furnace and wait about a minute or so then turn on breaker or switch 4) If this fails you could have a controller board problem at the furnace or blown fuse. Without knowing the type or age of your system its either a board or relay provided power is good

Furnace won't shut off


your control may be shorted due to getting wet. make sure the coil isnt frozen or that the drain line is clear and the inside of the furnace isnt wet. sometimes just letting it dry could solve the problem depending on the severity of water damage of course. more info would be needed to give you further diagnosis

Electric furnace/heater pump/fan unit won't shut off


There are dip switches on the main board.. When you remove the lower panel on the air handler there are instructions to where the dip switches should be for your units fan control. if the switches are in the correct configuration.. The Thermostat may be malfunctioning or not wired properly. and last.. and most expensive.. the motherboard may also be failing.
