SOURCE: the air handler won't shut off

As long as the t-stat fan switch is in the auto position the problem sounds like fan relay is stuck. It looks like a little black box about 2 inches square. Has 5 positions on it two of them are for 24 volts.
Be sure you turn off power before pulling it out. Make note of the arrangement of the wires maybe label as you remove them. ken

SOURCE: where is the fuse box in the inside air handler?

There should be a small 3 or 5 amp fuse on the circuit board inside the air handler.

SOURCE: The fan in the airhandler wont shut off.

The fan is controlled by a blower timer board located inside the air handler, or on older units it has a relay called (of all things) a blower relay. If these items were at fault I doubt removing the thermostat would cause the blower to go off. if bad causing this problem the blower would continue to run even with thermostat removed.

But it is also controlled by the thermostat.

You mentioned that if you remove the thermostat it cuts off. There are 2 switches on most thermostats.
1 has Cool, Off, Heat, and Emergency Heat (on a heat pump stat)
2 The other switch has On and auto (it is for the fan motor only)

I believe because it stops when you remove the thermostat that the switch on the fan is set to on possibly. It should be on auto-matic. This way the fan motor only come on with cooling or heating. If in the on it stays on all the time. If this is the case just switch to AUTO.

Or the thermostat may be wired wrong. The G terminal is where the fan motor gets instructions from the thermostat. Make sure its on G at the stat and the correct wire at the blower coil is being used for the corresponding wire going from the stat to the blower for G. Don't confues G for green it could be any color. The terminals are not for color but it makes more sence to make them color - letter identified. On the other end soemtimes the wires are not colored the same so look carefully.

Also a whisker of a thermostat wire could be touching inside the thermostat and causeing the motor to run 100%. Look carefully at this and see if it has too long of thermostat wires stickinhg on out under the screws to where they may tough other things.

If neither things stop or show the problem and it deffinately stops when thermostat is removed the thermostat is most likely bad.

If this helps you 1 way to make the repairs your\self or helps you realize you need a technician please rate mne as high as you can.

How do I fix my Trane air handler to keep it from turning off about 20 seconds after being commanded to turn on?


Some units require both a start and a run capacitor. It's possible the wrong capacitor was replaced. It's also possible to add a run capacitor to a system to keep the fan running. There is an outside chance the bearings in the fan motor are worn to the point it's time to replace the motor.

My air handler fan does not come on, the outside unit turns on fine. Is their a way to reset the fan?


Check for fan operation by turning the fan control at the thermostat to "on". If the fan blows, it works. If not, check a circuit breaker or fuse.

If the fan blows when forcing it on with the thermostat but not in automatic, check the fan control circuit in the air handler. Danger: high voltage, beware! There should be a system wiring diagram inside the air handler somewhere.

WIRING THE THERMOSTAT TO AC UNIT THEN FROM THE UNIT TO HANDLER


Generally, you would go from the thermostat to the air handler, and then, from the air handler to the outdoor unit. I don't know if you have a heat pump or not, so I will give you a simple diagram and you can contact me if you need more.

Thermostat : Y G R W and sometimes C
Air handler: Y G R W and C
Outdoor unit: two wires connecting to the contactor ( not heat pump)

Thermostat; Y--------------Y(air handler cooling)------------------one side of contactor, outdoor unit
G-------------G (air handler, fan)
R--------------R (air handler ,hot)
W-------------W (air handler, heat)
C--------------C (air handler, common)------------other side of contactor, outdoor unit

This is a typical wiring diagram. Just contact me if you have something different. Hope this helps. Stay cool. mark

My Rheem Air Handler runs all the time,a/c works fine and cools the house but I want the air handler to kick off when not in use. It's model RBHA-14J00NFRA Volts 208/240VAC PH/HZ 1/60


IS your thermostat set to automatic on the fan switch? If so then you may have a stuck fan relay in the air handler. If it has an electronic control board the relay is on the board and the whole board would need replaced. If it is not a stuck relay then you could have a crossed wire from the thermostat to the air handle, usually the green wire from the t-stat, it could be crossed with the red wire that supplies 24 volts to the t-stat.

My air handler fan will not come on during heating but will operate during cooling - Anerican Standard unit TWEO65E13FBO


Hi,
Please check the thermostta first. Take the thermostat to the air handler and hook up on a short thermostat leash. The unit should work properly, then its for sure that the problem is going to be in your thermostat wiring. If problem persists then we are troubleshooting a thermostat.

Let us know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Changed batterys in the tstat now air handle will not run


Turn the Fan switch to On, if the fan does not run,
either the thermostat is not telling it to run or you have blown a mini fuse in the air handler, assuming
you have no readout at thermostat.

disconnect thermostat wires and try to Jumper between R and W or W1. Remember to shut power
off before you start. If the air handler starts the
problem is either ther thermostat or thermostat wire.

Lennox CB26UH Air Handler stopped running


Do you mean the air handler fan doesn't run but the outside part runs? If that is the problem, try turning the fan blade with a stick. If it turns freely, you have an electrical problem. It could be a relay, a bad motor winding, a bad capacitor, or a bad thermostat, among other things. If the fan won't turn, the motor needs to be replaced.
