You could have a bad Heat sensing switch...or the wiring itself could be a bad connection........UNPLUG the heater first.....follow the wires coming from the fan and they will lead to the switcvh that brings the fan on...ensure the connections look ok......If they are fine install a "jumper" wire across the 2 terminals and plug the unit back in the fan should run continuously....then you know the switch is no good....if the wires go to a Rheostat (adjustable speed control) ensure that the dial is on....becareful the jumper wire doesn't touch anything...and test it briefly...you will be able to tell if the fan is ok...you may also be able to simply marette the wires going to the switch together which is the same as a jumper wire...if you're unfamiliar with Electrical or anything I'm saying I suggest you call a Qualified Technician

The fan motor is bad. without the fan running the thermostat shuts off quickly. if you pay attention the fan will barely run or not at all. replace the fan motor and it will run fine.

Fan will not cut off


Janet, the problem most likely is not in the thermostat. It is probably the fan relay on the circuit board in the furnace. Some furnaces have an individual fan control board, some furnaces have all the controls integrated within one control board. If your furnace is 20 years old or older, it could be the fan/limit control because at that time all furnaces did not come with a control board. If it is much older than 20 years, it is much more likely a stuck fan/limit.

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

You probably have a shorted wire between the heater and the a/c. There are two wires that conncet the control power to the outdoor a/c from the heater they should be on terminal c & y in the heater. disconect those two wires and try it again if the fuse doesnt blow you have a short in the wire between the a/c & heater

B3101 AEG oven cuts out after approx. 15 minutes - why?


this is probably the thermal cut-out causing the problem. not sure where it is located but possibly on the roof of the oven or in the rear casing near the fan. however, the cause may be lack of ventilation to the unit as a whole
