Question about Heating & Cooling
Is there a manual somewhere? I can't see where an air filter can be replaced. The furnace doesn't work at all. I saw something on youtube regarding manually lighting the furnace and replacing the thermoouple. Serial No. says 5881... so maybe the unit was from 1981, and the air cleaner, wherever it is, was installed in 1992? Any information appreciated.
Here's some borrowed info.:
`These are classic symptom of a limit switch opening. Can't guarantee that is what is going on, but here is some things that can cause the limit switch to open:
1) Low air flow. This can be caused by dirty filter, dirty blower wheel, dirty air conditioning evaporator coil, restricted or collapsed ductwork, blower motor running the wrong direction, blower running on too low of a speed, defective limit switch, or a combination of several of these factors. Inspection along with measuring the temperature rise will find most of them.
2) Heat exchanger failure. Split or burned through heat exchanger
3) Over-fired furnace. If you have eliminated everything in section 1 and 2, and the temperature rise through the furnace is still high, you need to check the furnace to make sure it is not burning more fuel than it is designed to burn. If it is a natural gas furnace, you can check the amount of fuel that is being burned by clocking your gas meter.
Here is a link that will tell you how to use your gas meter to calculate the BTU input of your furnace. It should never be more BTU than the furnace's rated input.
The problems you have could be potentially hazardous. If you are not able to aggressively find the problem on your own, you should hire a professional to look at the furnace immediately. The G12 furnace is getting relatively old. If you have never had it professionally inspected (sounds like you haven't), you probably should have a professional look at it immediately.' END QUOTE
