Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Gibson gas furnace

The furnace will not stay running to get to room temp. It runs for a few minutes then kicks off and with in a minute it kicks back on it does this until it reaches temp. and sometimes it just does not kick on and I check to see if any lights are flashing a code and adjust the thermostat and somewhere in all that it will kick on and run like it was I guess my question is shouldn't it kick on and stay on until the house reaches temp with no interruption

SOURCE: furnace won't stay running

1
1 FLASH
Furnace fails to operate.
• Integrated control module
diagnostic LED is
flashing ONE (1) flash.
• Furnace lockout due
to an excessive
number of ignition
“retries” (3 total)1.
• Failure to establish flame.
Cause may be no gas to
burners, front cover
pressure switch stuck open,
bad igniter or igniter
alignment, improper orifices,
or coated/oxidized or
improperly connected flame
sensor.
• Loss of flame after establishment.
Cause may be
interrupted gas supply, lazy
burner flames (improper gas
pressure or restriction in flue
and/or combustion air
piping), front cover pressure
switch opening, or improper
induced draft blower
performance.
• Locate and correct gas
interruption.
• Check front cover
pressure switch
operation (hose, wiring,
contact operation).
Correct if necessary.
• Replace or realign
igniter.
• Check flame sense
signal. Sand sensor if
coated and/or oxidized.
• Check flue piping for
blockage, proper
length, elbows, and
termination.
• Verify proper induced
draft blower performance.

SOURCE: Carrier Gas Furnace and Hunter Thermostat not working

Definitely a furnace issue. The gas valve is not opening if you see no flame. I have seen the igniter glow but not send enough voltage to the circuit board to make the gas valve open. If this is the case you should replace the igniter. It is very fragile so please use care when replacing. Check all connections at the circuit board as well as the gas valve. Check your gas supply. Check to see if you get 24 volts AC to the gas valve. If no, replace the circuit board. If yes, replace the gas valve once you confirm that you have gas to it. If you get a pilot flame only, you will need to clean the burners and flame tray that spreads the flame from one burner to the next.

SOURCE: Gas Furnace trouble

the thermostat sends a signal to the circuit board. Not knowing anymore than I do about your heater or furnace I would suggest that that is a good place to start. Any limit or safety switch wouldnt coincidentally shut off the heater when it reached the set temp.

I have a coleman furnace model 4066A656


Make sure your air filter is clean. Is the thermostat satisfied? or is the room temp. still below the thermostat setting? When ever you have to turn the power off and then back on to a furnace that usually indicates that the furnaces ignition control locked out. The first thing that I would try is cleaning the flame rod.

Have Gibson furnace runs cycle but seems don't get hot enough out of vents check all 115 degrees at vents use to lot hotter old furnace you couldn't stand on vents now you can easily


Is this a gas furnace ? Newer high eff. gas furnaces do have cooler outlet temperatures. The installer should have checked the temperature rise and gas pressure. By adjusting the gas pressure and blower speed you can obtain a higher outlet temp, but you don't want the gas pressure to be higher than the manufacture specs and you don't want the furnace to run outside of the manufactures temp rise specs.

Auto/On set to ON. Fan runs.


Sounds like the thermostat, the way to verify is to unplug indoor unit, remove thermostat, take pic of wiring with phone or label the wires as to the terminals. Carefully twist the yellow,(Y) Red (R) and the green (G) together. Plug the furnace back in, if the unit operates normally, replace the thermostat. I am basing this on the fact that the blower speed is changing. This could also be an anomaly within the circuit board in the furnace section, not likely though as the outside unit (condenser) is not controlled n by the indoor board unless this is a heat pump. hope this helps.

Does the furnace stays off?.
Furnace are ment to cycle on and off because of limits .If you set to 70 furnace would cycle several times before reaching that temperature.
Just make sure your filters are clean and you got proper return air flow because lack of air flow will cause furnace to shut off sooner than normal

My Ruud furnace used to regulate 1 deg +\- the set temp. Now it regulates right at the set temp and the fan cuts off while the burner continues to fire for a minute or so then the fan kicks back on for...


Hi,
It appears to be the fan limiter switch. It comes on at a certain temp when heating up and shuts off on the high end of its setting. Once the burners are shut down, the fan continues for a few minutes to cool down the burners. The limiter switch is adjustable but it sounds to me to be defective and should be replaced. Good luck and stay warm, :-)

After four years I do not thing you have an effective warranty even if the company still in business. you need to open it first and clean it from any builod up dust and check the switch to see if it is working (thermostate)

Lennox Gas Furnace that turns on and shuts off in minutes


After troubleshooting like mad, I found that the flame sensor (rod that sits within the flame) was fouled with carbon on the surface. I believe this shields the rod from proper heat detection and the sensor reports that there is no flame and to shut off the gas valve to avoid explosion. Once I pulled out the rod and cleaned it with a wire brush, I have no problem whatsoever--fixed.
