Re: intertherm ultraflex mobile home furnace

Is this a 120v motor, or 220v? If you checked for power, I assume you kind of know your way around a meter. When checking for power, don't check to ground, check the line. You could have power going in, but unless its going back out, completing the circuit, or missing a leg, in 220v case, it still will not work. Also, most heaters have some sort of delay, so after you hook it back up, and the burner heats up wait a few minutes for the fan to come on.

I have an old Intertherm gas-fired furnace, Model MGH-055AB which ceased operating last night. It was quite warm when I arrived home, and when I set the heat up a little, began to hum, but the fan would...

Tom P's answer is generally correct: The motor start capacitor is usually not the problem. However, in some cases, particularly on older furnaces, where there were capacitors of certain make and production run will prematurely fail. This happened in March on a mobile home HVAC unit where both the blower fan and condenser fan motor capacitors failed open circuit. Both caps were of the same Mfg, and production lot.
Here is a suggestion (for you or an electrically inclined friend): Locate a substitute motor capacitor having similar Mfd (or MF) and Voltage ratings. Remove power from the unit. Reach into the blower squirrel cage and spin it to verify that the shaft is not frozen. Pull the wires from the existing capacitor noting color and location. Connect the wires to the substitute capacitor and secure it place. Apply power and turn on the blower. A no start? Motor replacement time.

Have an Intertherm thermostate in mobile home controlling gas hearing and elec ac. Blue wire to thermostat connects to the "A" terminal on the thermostat...Blue wire goes to a terminal on the...

If there are only two wires going to the thermostat? Then you will not be able to use a Digital Programable stat. Intertherm and Coleman furnaces do the switching different than regular furnaces. They use the switching from heat to AC at the furnace with the rocker switch. They use the thermostat to either break the connection or make the connection. They use a heating only thermostat.... Hope this helps

I have a mobile home furnace and I have no manual. I think it needs a filter but I can't tell where it is supposed to go or what kind of filter I should use. Is there a diagram available I could look at?...

The filter is usually located in the door or front cover. If you have trouble finding material you can measure opening and get one or more 1 inch thick high effiency filter. You can set these filters on their sides or upright,it really does't matter as long as you have direction of air flow going the right way. Arrows pointing into blower compartment. I have taken two or more filters and duct taped them together to get the right size. Not pretty, but it works.Hope this helps. Thanks

I have an Intertherm heat pump model number E1EH-010HA. Last night we had a bad storm and our electricity went out and we had a water leak, now out heat pump isn't working. There is power to the...

Your furnace will either have circuit breakers or fuses at the bottom in the panel below the blower. Also, there MAY be fuses in the disconnect box outside that gives power to the heatpump. Intertherm furnaces are famous for leaking water onto the left side of the electrical panel in the furnace which is also convieniently where the low voltage transformer is located. If you consider yourself electrically competent, check to see that you are getting 240v to your transformer and if you are the check to see if you are getting 24v out of the transformer. If you can't find the problem in any of these steps, I would recommend contacting a qualified professional to check the system out.
