Sounds like a stuck relay. Try turning on cool, measure temperatures in ducts. See if the heat strips are coming on every time the fan turns on not just when on fan only

Blower motor not coming on for electric heater


Talk about a misnomer? Electric heat works way diff than gas heating. On electric heat multiple strips and a fan of course. But if they all come on at the same time then the breaker would trip so they use a sequencer for that job. Gas heat uses a bi-metal probe which twists around and turns the fan on when the temp reaches 110 in the plenum. Yall either have a bad fan or capacitor OR the thang that turns the fan on ain't doin it.

While running my furnace is keeps buzzing, and it has been running for a long time


I assume you have electric heat strips. Turn the heat off and turn the fan on. If it is not buzzing when the "fan only" is on then the contactor that supplies current to the heat bank is bad. Replace the contactor.
Hope this helps.

Have side by side and heater strip between doors is very hot.is there a switch to turn it off.suspect condensation heater.


Hi, Welcome to FixYa.

I`ll start by letting you know first the heat between the doors is normal...to a degree, and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider.

If all else appears fine, temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall, it's likely nothing to be concerned about.

**Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning.** The fan at the back next to the compressor.

If you suspect it is hot to the "extreme" then here`s what to look for.

The amount of heat can be determined by several factor's such as,

1) temperature setting - lower ( colder ) the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip.

2) The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs to compensate, hence the hotter the strip.

3) The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit ( especially freezer section if unfrozen items added ) - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat (btu`s or british thermal unit`s )causing the strip to be hotter.

4) Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip.

These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors.

Another factor to always consider is of course If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned.

Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further. Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward.

Electric furnace. Just replaced the controller board but no heat. The blower does come on when the thermostat gives the heat command and I was wondering if that means the relays to the furnace coils is...


On a Trane furnace the fan realy must energize before the electric strips will come on. On the thermastat. See if there is setting for electric heat. This will bring the fan on and the strips should come on. First just turn on your heat and and turn fan to on postion if it works you need to set tstat to electric heat mode. Most of the time there is sswitch in the back of the stat that says gas elec. Turn to electric. Rus

The metal strip on the bottom, can it be replaced?


There are no replacement parts for this fan available, however I managed to get mine spinning like new after it had died. I took the two halves of the fan body apart, and scraped the heat sink compound off either side of the power plate. I then applied CPU heat sink compound that can be found at any computer or electronics store liberally to either side, and put it back together. The fan spins like new, spread the word!

Intertherm air conditioner split unit


you need to know if the heat strips are energized by a contactor or relay as opposed to a heat sequencer. as a general rule the contactor or relay clicks shut as soon as a call for heat is made and the fan is energized by the stat at the same time . instant heat strips and instant fan. if the heat strips have a sequencer it may take up to 90 seconds or so before the sequencer heats up then clicks and puts power to the strips and the fan motor at the same time. the high voltage usually feeds from the strip side of the sequencer through the normally closed side of the fan relay. if you changed the stat and didn't switch the fan setting switch to elec, the fan will not be energized by the stat. if it is in the gas position, you have told it that the sequencer is bringing on the fan and of course it won' t if you don't have a sequencer.. this is tough stuff to trace even for an experienced pro cause its interconnected so dual fan speeds can't be energized at the same time. most likely you have a new digital stat that was not programmed correctly to bring fan on in heat. good luck

What's the deal? Wont shut off or respond to thermostat. . .


Red= power........White=heat.............Green=fan.................(grey)-(yellow)=cool .....these are the connectons. Disconnect these wires from the thermostat and know that red/power is the only wire that send power to the thermostat, and the rest sends it back to the unit to call for whatever,, red--to . white for heat... red to green for fan .... &red to grey for cool! OK! Turn all your power on, and use a jumper wire from red / green for fan and see if the fan comes on! Then move the jumper wire from red to green , to red / to white for heat and the fan , wait for 3 minutes before removing and going to the next step. Then red /to grey for cool and check if the outside comes on. Either you have a wire touching past the insulations and making a connection, a bad thermostat ,oe excessive wire lead touching the next connection.Thank you very much!

No heat


need to know if its a heat pump or electric strip heat. if its a heat pump then compressor and outdoor fan will run on call for heat. being an intertherm and most of them are electric strips, i'll guess. the call for heat sends 24 volts to the heat sequencer. lots of wires connected to what is called a stack switch. wires closest to the mounting plate are 24 volts and when energized they heat up a bimetal disc that clicks on in 90 to 160 second s and energizes the first strip and fan and a few seconds later the 2nd and 3rd strips kick in. for every strip operating you pull about 20 amps. if fan is working then the other parts of the sequencer are failing to close and put power to the strips or the strips themselves are bad. these are very very confusing and tricky to work with. i have to work on them hot to observe where the problem lies. very dangerous as you are going to have to trip a 90 amp breaker if you make a mistake , not to mention the parts are not available except through wholesale only supply house. i feel pretty confident the sequencer is going to be bad and i think its probably best you call a pro to get this one squared away. sometimes when you are tinkering with old sequencers they literally crumble apart in front of you, they can get that brittle. it can be quite an adventure and not for the faint of heart when its hot. good luck.
