Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Not working properly.

We live in a mobile home and have a standard Coleman thermostat. Somehow the thermostat was knocked off the wall and was hanging there. For the last couple of weeks we have had to manually turn the air off and on from the furnace. Today, I decided to try and repair it and got it where it would turn/kick on and off from the thermostat. The air didn't seem to be as cold as it should so I turned it down so I could feel a drastic change. Still no luck. The thermostat also does not want to kick off unless it's kicked up to around 75 which proves to me that it isn't working properly.

    With the way the economy is I'm trying to refrain from buying anything I don't have to.

    Since my first post I have messed with it some more and found that I had a switch turned off. It is not blowing cold air it just doesn't want to kick off unless it's set on 75.

REplace the T-Stat. It will solve all your problems. Also at the same time make sure your wires go to where they are marked.
R= red wire
W= white
G= dont use

Coleman furnace runs a lot

You did not indicate the year or size of the mobile home, but, having lived in several in cold Michigan, here are some things.
Be sure all the windows are well sealed.
At first, I used to put a strong clear plastic sheet over the insides, and tape these in place.
Later, I bought foam insulation board at a lumber yard and cut pieces to fin the window openings, and taped them in.
When it is really cold, feel the walls, the floor, and the ceiling.
If you find cold to the touch, you are losing heat there.
If your floors are cold, put insulating panels and skirting around the bottom of the trailer.
If your extreme cold lasts for months, some people consider putting a small electric heater under the trailer that is temperature controlled.
Some people do a "roof-over" by setting poles or posts alongside the trailer and adding an additional roof above the trailer.
That step would enable you to add insulation above the top if your ceiling is cold.
God bless your efforts.

Wall mount thermostat not shutting off

Replace the T-Stat. They go bad after awhile and then you just need to replace the stat. When you replace the stat also check the wires to make sure they are not broken or frail.

Coleman Presidential II mobile home furnace. When burner lights the blower cycles on and off instead of blowing constant through burner cycle.

Is this furnace standing pilot or electronic ignition. If standing pilot i would check furnace filter then the thermastat. To test themostat first turn power off to furnace. Take thermostat off wall and take wires labled R & W and connect them together. If you have electronic ignition I would start with cleaning the flame sensor with steel wool or wire brush.If you have and more questions i will be glad to help.
