Question about Heating & Cooling

Nordyne electric heater

I have a Nordyne, model # e2eh017ha electric heater in my home and it has been intermittently blowing cool air instead of hot. It has now gotten to not blowing any hot air. The blower works fine and I have inspected the heating coils and ohm tested them and they seem ok. I see all the compenents of the heater but don't know what to look for and how to test them. With some explenation I may be able to test and find the problem. Is there possibly a common failure of these heaters? Possibly the circuit board. Any help would be appreciated.

    My Nordyne E2EH Heater is having a similar problem, the blower works but no heat, blower will shut off by itself. Still no heat. Why? and what to look for!! Thanks Jeff!!

    I have a nordyne furnace Model E2EH-023HA. If I set the thermostat at 74 degree the furnace will never reach this temp while running constant. It puts out heat to the registers (not real warm though). Is it possible that Circuit "B" is not kicking on to provide more heat ?? My understanding is that Circuit "A" will kick on 1st then if it needs more heat, Circuit "B" will kick on. Is this true? In the past while the furnace was running I used to hear a "click" and moments later another "click". I assumed that this was Circuit "B" turning on and off. I no longer hear any "clicks" anytime. The breakers on both circuits are never tripped off. Is it possible there is a "Reset" someplace or possibly a fuse blowen ?? I would appreciate any information you can give me before I call for a Service Rep. Thank You! Bob My EMail addr is bobblaum@hotmail.com

If you have 24 + volts between common and w or w2 when your thermostat is calling for heat, you might have a or a couple of defective heat relays or sequencers.

How can i get the vents to blow cool or cold air instead of hot air


Your Heater tap is probably stuck in the on posision. This is in the engine bay. Not sure if yors is vacume, electric or cable operated. Temporary fix bypass the heater alltogether ie: put the hoses that go to the tap reroute to the motor

My 1999 Chevy Malibu runs hot? It started when it overheated. We changed the thermostat, then water pump, then temp sensor gauge and the temp gauge goes high but only when the heater stops blowing hot...


Air pockets will make the guage do that, and also cause your heat to come and go. Also, a poor radiator, as in rotting, or plugged up, will cause high temperature issues.

Car is overheating and does not blow hot air consistently. will blow warm air intermittently.


If it's overheating, and the heater core is not getting hot, maybe there is a blockage in the cooling system that can be rectified by flushing it out professionally.

The diagrams above may not be exactly what you are needing. But they will be close. Usually the diagram for the furnace is on the inside of the blower fan door. Two things come to mind. It seems like your limit switch(s) are cutting out, then in, then out, etc and may have failed totally. These are in the system to prevent the temperature in the furnace from getting too high. Why they are cutting in and out may be due to the lack of sufficient air passing through the furnace. This can be caused by, 1. the fan speed is too slow, or 2. the air filter is needing to be changed. I am not sure how proficient you are with electrical troubleshooting. I would (turn off all power to furnace) find the limit switches (usually at the top of the heating elements) and check to see (with an ohm meter) if the switches are allowing the meter's current to flow through them. Your meter should read near zero, if not, then I would replace the switch with an exact one. If you are proficient with electrical troubleshooting, I would place the furnace in the "call for heat" position, with the power on, (be careful, this stuff can hurt) and I would see if I have voltage at the heating elements, and I would check with my voltmeter across the two leads on each limit switch if there is voltage present. If there is voltage present, then the switch is probably ****.
Depending on the furnace you have, you might have a number of switches that control the heating elements, these units are usually time delay and if they fail, you should replace them with the same delay time. I hope this helps.

Heater only blows cold air


Check both heater hoses under hood to see if they get hot, if they do the heater is fine. need to check to see if the selection doors inside the unit are opening and closing.
