My electric coleman furnace will not run.


Depress the interlock switch manually as the furnace is starting up. That should give you your answer. Some furnaces (mine) rely on a friction fit of the cover panel to close the switch. Over time, the friction fit stops fitting.

Just purchased this heater, the fan comes on but the heat is next to nothing. I checked the voltage at the elements and is is 235v the amperage on L1 and L2 is 20.8a. If I pull the fan wire off the relay,...


First off, 20.8 amps is approximately the amperage draw on a single element furnace (nominally 5 kw.) So if you have 3 or 4 elements, (15 or 20 kw capacity) the problem is the remaining elements are not being enrgized. Look to see if there is a W1 and W2 and even possibly a W3 terminal on the terminal strip. If so, and its not a heat pump, there should be thermostat wires on all three, indicating three stages of heat. To energize those properly, the thermostat should be a multi-stage heating thermostat providing W1 and W2 at the minimum. If you do not have a multi stage thermostat, and there are no wires on W2 and W3, jumper W1, W2 and W3 together and the furnace will come on at full capacity with the single stage thermostat.

If you DO in fact have wires on the additional W terminals, you more than likely have a heat sequencer that is not energizing the 2nd and possibly the third stage of heat. A three element furnace is typically called a 15kw furnace and the three elements should draw approximately 19 to 20 amps each. So when each stage draws in, the clamp on amprobe on the main incoming wires will correspondingly increase with each stage.

Also, some 15 and 20 kw furnaces require two circuits to supply the elements, and I have been on calls before where the second breaker was not turned on, and in one case, the second circuit wasn't even wired in from the electrical panel box.

DO NOT pull the wire off the fan while the heaters are energized as they will rapidly cycle on an overtemp device. Some actually have a "one time" thermal link that once melted render the respective element inoperable until that thermal link is replaced. They will melt very easily. An energized element MUST have airflow across it !!!

Where does the power originate for my thermostat(I have a 2000 Nortron 10 k. electric furnace)


It is either powered from the furnace or outdoor unit , shut off power to each to determine . In rare cases there may be a 24 volt transformer connected to a lighting circuit .

Nortron electric furnace series


Sounds like a stuck sequencer. Verify there is not 24 Volt control voltage to sequencer coil, then replace sequencer.

Nordyne furnace FEH017HA-04 the fan runs full force when the ac is on but half speed when the furnace kicks in


That is probably normal if it is electric heat to slow the air over the heating elements. Even some gas units do this. Check to see if the unit blower motor has wires for multiple speeds.

Intertherm furnace burner comes on, but blower does not. If I turn thermostat off then back on until it clicks the fan will then come on. It does not do this all of the time, just now and then.


Furnace burner and heat element are not the same. I think the fan time delay, a sensor that turns the fan on when this sensor senses heat, is shot and needs replacing, for a furnace type heat ( gas heat)

Draft fan keeps on running after furnace shuts


That sounds pretty normal for most furnace/heater products. They run the heating element with fan for a cycle then after the heater reaches temperature it will shut off and the fan will continue to run to cool the element and to circulate the heat that it produced. If you want the manual for this product it looks like you can get it here: http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/ex/product/headline/m/Coleman%2BEvcon/d/furnace/p/DGATO75BDC
