Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have 1974 beach furnace in my mobile home. It ran two years 100% trouble free. When we went to turn it on in August, it would stay lit until reaching temp, then quit. I can get maybe 3 cycles before I hear a loud click and the pilot just shuts off. The blower motor keeps going though. I have replaced the valve, thermocoupler and relay; and when lit the pilot is very strong. The guy was here again, he checked the roof chimney outlet, pulled THE ENTIRE assembly apart and cleaned everything meticulously. This is the second specialist I have had come out that is completely baffled. Neither know what to tell me, as for all intents and purposes every part appears to function on it's own. Has anyone heard of anything like this ? Regretfully I can't afford to replace it. Thank you for any and all feedback.

Though not familiar with 'beach' brand mobile home units, they are probably a 'barrel' design similar to the coleman and intertherm furnaces specifically made for this application. That said, have the specialists check for a cracked heat exchanger? A crack in the right spot can cause the pilot to be blown out by the blower after the main valve shuts off. Just a thought.

SOURCE: Heater blower motor cycles on and off (frequently). I have a class 2 LR95329 Honeywell Thermostat

I had the same problem with a Coleman. The problem is the blower relay. You can find this at http://mobilehomerepair.com

SOURCE: My pilot keeps going out on the furnace. We lite

Check the pilot light size. Is it small and not surrounding the top 1/3 of the thermocouple? If it isn't then the pilot orfice is restricted or the pilot tube compression nut could be loose. The pilot gas adjustment screw may also need adjusting if this gas valve has one. These problems should only be addressed by an experienced service tech.

SOURCE: Goodman GMP075-3 not igniting. Everything cycles

The flash code is due to the furnace not proving flame 3 times in a row. If you have a multimeter you can ohm the ignitor out to see if it is good. Depending on the type (silicon Nitride or silicon Carbide) you can verify if it is good. A silicon Nitride ignitor looks like a small thin straight bar type will ohm @ 11 - 18 ohms, a carbide ignitor looks kinda like a tuning fork (sorta) will typically ohm @ 40 - 92 ohms. anything outside of those ranges will require a replacement.

SOURCE: Janitrol GUPS075-3 Furnace burners will not stay lit

The first thing I would do is make sure the flame sensor is clean, this is a metal rod immersed in the burner flame on the opposite side of the igniter. If too much oxidation builds up on it, it will not allow the burner to stay lit. To clean, just turn off furnace and remove flame sensor and clean with steel wool and then reinstall. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the gas valve.

My mother has a Ultra Flex Inter Therm Model # 431900 heater in her mobile home. Last night she had it set on 65' but it ran & ran until it got up to 80' It will not shut off! It will not turn off even...


If you remove the furnace doors, and find where the thermostat wires come in, leave the breaker off, and disconnect the thermostat wires at the furnace. Turn the breaker back on, if it doesn't run, then you have a short somewhere in the wall, in the thermostat wire.
If this is the case, then the best thing to do, is to re-run the thermostat wire to a closer location.
The moblie homes, older ones, use thermostat wires that are not encased in a plastic cover, and they use metal staples in the wall to secure the wire, so they can short through the wires, and making contact,,, this turns on the furnace.
If the furnace continues to run,,, it is a control issue in the furnace it's self and you will need a repairperson.
If this helps please rate the new guy :)
Thank you ,
Paul

Flame sensor dirty


Sandpaper lightly scrubbed over the sensor tip to remove any contamination.

Sometimes cleaning is not enough and the sensor must be replaced.

I have a goodman gmpn 100-4 REVB furnace that will not stay lit


If the igniter lights the burners the ignitor..... is not bad. Its like a light bulb.... it works or ot doesn't.
You are describing a dirty flame sensor. Dishonest contractors will sell you a new ignitor but clean the flame sensor when the are installing the ignitor. It is located at the opposite end of the burners than the ignitor. It has one wire going to it. Remove it and clean the rod with a piece of fine grit sandpaper. this should be done every year before heating season.
Good luck

Colman Furnace keeps kicking on & off


Denise, my heater not a coleman (a monitor heater (oil) kept turning off when the temp got really cold. I would advise you to ask if you can do this, I addded an additive to my drum outside which holds the fuel. Because the deisel thickens up when it gets cold, which makes the heater have a harder time distributing the fuel to the heater. So far the heater has not kicked off.

Rheem gas furnace pilot lights, but no burners or fan


If the burners do not fully ignite, the sensor will shut the furnace down. The lack of sufficient burner flame is a gas valve or gas pressure problem within the valve.
Replacing the gas valve with the original one may get you going. I surely suggest a professional service company for safety reasons and a thorough inspection. A 20 year old furnace is past it's normal life span.
