Re: intertherm furnace..not working right

If i understand your problem description correctly when power is on but the furnace is not running you can smell burning dust and feel heat? first thing i can think of is possible a heater relay has gone bad keeping the heater on all the time but no fan...

OK. Let me answer you, even if honestly I don't have any idea about an INTERTHERM FORCED AIR FURNACE. To get any answer, to a problem, you should describe your problem. Just telling that you don't know what's wrong with it is simply no enough information, even for a star expert in your INTERTHERM FORCED AIR FURNACE.

I have in Intertherm gas furnace. The system runs, hot air comes out of the vents, but it smells like burnt plastic, and the red light on the circuit board is lit up...

There is a short circuit developing in an electrical circuit in the furnace. Do not turn it back on and call a service technician to examine it.

I have an intertherm electric furnace. the heat coils heat up then system shuts down

It is possible that high temp limit is shutting you down.make sure your blower is running when t-stat is calling for heat.if notstart at the heat sequencer which cuts the blower on with first bank of heat. it will be dangerous and difficult to troubleshoot this prob without a multimeter and experiance with elect. components

Intertherm furnace not getting hot after motor swap. PLEASE HELP

You already diagnosed it yourself. The motor may have been the same physical size but it operates at a higher speed and doesn't remove enough heat from the furnace. You need to have the right motor installed period.

Intertherm Furnace Will not stay on

Your furnace is likely getting too hot check your filter. make sure the fan is running. if you have weak air flow you may have a blocked heat transfer coil. you should have your heating and cooling system serviced yearly by a qualified company to inspect and test equipment.

I have a mobile home furnace Intertherm #1378. The pilot light is on, but the burner will not light. The thermostat clicks on and everything seems to be running properly, but there is no flame. Last year...

First make sure that the gas valve is in the on position. There is a spring load diaphragm that will stick when not in use over time, When the t-stat clicks on for heat tap the valve with a hammer LIGHTLY. If it doesn't come on replace the valve.
