Coleman Evcon furnace blower runs w/ no call for heat. Temp is 5+ degrees above thermostat setting. (Programmable tstat)


When you say door are you referring to the front door or the furnace door? If the unit kicks on AND off by itself I would say it's in the tstat or the tstat wire. If it were internal I would think the blower relay or heat contactor/relay were getting stuck AND THE FAN WOULD NOT TURN OFF until you flipped the breaker. Good luck

I have a built in wall oven whirlpool gold mod.gbs309pvsoo controls turn on but no heat from element


Could be element could be Hi limit thermostat could be control. In that order. First step is turn breaker off and remove element to make sure the wires are still connected to back of element. Visually inspect element very good for burns or a white powder residue signally the element burned up. Next step is harder, need to remove the oven and take off back panel, there you will find the hi temp thermostat. Check for continuity, if none replace.

Furnace lights blows heat in cycle, pops sensor on blower and continuosly blows air until button on sensor is pushed back in


If the sensor knocks the unit off and the the fan keeps blowing without a flame ,the limit (the sensor is a limit comptroller that turns off flame @ a set temp and allows the fan to run until the heat exchanger cools to @ set temp) has out lived its lifetime and needs to be replaced.the button is a manual reset that once reset would allow the unit to continue to run flame and blower at the same time after having been set once, if it is an ongoing problem and needs to be reset more than once then replace the limit control (sensor) in kind. (With the same mode and set-points for the limits)

Does not heat


Try resetting your circuit breaker. Look for lint buildup in your vent and your lint filter housing. If you see excess lint you might have a tripped safety or a blown duct fuse. Get a cheap meter and check each of the safety components and the air temp control stats for continuity. Check the heating element. If all of those check good then check the timer. If the timer is ok then power from the wall might not be there for heat. The motor works on 120 volts but the element needs 240 volts on electric models. On gas models your flame sensor, ignitor, or solenoid coils are suspect as well as the limits and safetys just as on an electric model. More here

Problem: The dryer runs fine but it won't heat up. I have checked and cleaned the vent line. This did not abate the problem. Question: is there something other than a bad heating element that would...


If the heating element is fine check the limits:

Your fuse is ok because the dryer runs. So one of the heater limits is probably blown.
The 2 above limits fit a standard WP dryer. Yours might take a diff part number depending on the model. If all limits are fine, yall could have a bad breaker, a bad temp control or a bad timer.

I just bought a house with an amerec sauna. The


the 'easy' answer would be a tripped high-limit switch. Inside the generator box, there is a resettable circuit breaker to the heating element, on the top of the water tank.
kill the power to the unit, take off the shell and look for the pushbutton.
If that is the problem, there is a likely chance that the temp sensor in the shower is not working so it overheats and trips the high temp limit.

Burner lights but limit switch will not turn fan on automatically. the burner will shut down if i don't run fan manually. is it the limit switch?


Hi, Yes, you have the answer to you're problem. Now, I don't no if you have just a high limit, or a combination Limit control? I will go with the combination fan control as when they go bad, they stick in the closed position and they have normally open contacts. When the heat exchanger starts to heat on a call for heat, there is a dial on the fan control with temp. settings on it , and it will start to rotate as the heat gets higher. When it reaches its set fan on temp, it with start the fan.We no the fan works so the blower is good, so it shuts the burners down on you're high limit temp. which is factory set to about 250*F. When you turn The t-stat from auto to on in the fan side, that solves the problem temp, only. You will need to R & R the Fan control. If you need some direction on doing this please let me know and if it is a Honeywell auto/on type that is rectangular in looks, and if you remove the cover you will see the temp. dial with arrows on it. Thank you.
Best of Luck, and Sincerely,

Replaced high temp sensor on whirlpool front loader


The high limit thermostat should have been replaced also.
If there are no obstructions that will fix your problem.
