Your heating sequencer is most likely your problem. When you call for heat your sequencer typically operates both heat strip and blower. Try you fan in the on not auto position to see if blower works. If it does it is likely the sequencer.

My heat is coming out cool. How long does it take until I feel it?


If it is an electric furnace, the heat sequencers usually take 45 seconds to possibly 1 1/2 minutes to fully stage on. This depends on how many elements you have. Of course, once they stage on, one or more elements COULD be burnt out.

If its a gas furnace over ten/twelve years old, the thermally activated control should start the blower at approximately 140 degrees. That usually occurs within one or two minutes of main gas opening.

If its a gas furnace that's relatively new, the blower comes on through a circuit board after a call for heat is initiated and could run and blow cold air even if the main gas flame is in flame failure.

Intertherm e2eb 015ha


let me guess.....its electric, right? could be so many things! do this first. turn power off. check all wiring for burnt or broke wires., usually at connections. next turn system on. does blower stop running and then breaker trips? if so its blower motor or blower relay. if blower and wires are ok then problem is probably a broken heating element.

HEAT PUMP


It is not normal to have a loud buzz associated with the electric heat. Try turning the heat off and running the fan only to see if the buzz continues. The buzz could be coming from any number of sources including an electrical component, the blower wheel, a loose fastener...etc.
The temporary smoke and smell could have been the dust burning off the element if the elements have not been used in a long time. However, if the elements have been running, it could be something got loose in your system and stuck between the blower and the heating elements.....for example, the wiring diagram could have come loose and worked it's way through the wheel. I've also seen owner's manuals left in the air handler that eventually got stuck in the blower. This should be inspected to ensure there is not a fire hazard.

I hope this helps and good luck. :-)

Can I convert a propane furnace to electric?


Actually yes! You can install electric elements in the plenum that turn on by your thermostat. The convection blower from the furnace can be used. You can also install a heat pump system that will give you both heat and air conditioning.

When I turn the air on the heat strips comes on at the same time


Is this a central heat? From the size i assume it is.
You say air conditioning on part of your question then use heat pump on another part. So it is important for us both be on the same page.
With all due respect some people think they have a heat pump and it is just AC and electric heat also but is not a heat pump.
. If you have the outdoor AC unit running with your thermostat set for heat and the air coming off the out door unit is cold, or you see it "steam up outdoors" off the out door unit at times (we call this mode defrost).

If you actually have a Heat pump system some times it is wired to have the strips come on at the same time the heat pump comes on especially if you experience a lot of weather below 40' occasionally and have an emergency heat setting on your thermostat you most likely have a heat pump.

If you have a heat pump for sure now the heaters can come on with the outdoor section if
1 they are wired to do so or
2 the thermostat has 2 stage heating and the second stage is telling the elements to come on, or
3 the outdoor thermostat (if so equipped) is telling the elements to come on.
Any 1 or combination of these 3 items can cause the elements to come on wit the out door unit.

Heat not blowing on heat cycle


Have to know what kind of heat it is, Gas, Electric or Electric Heat Pump.

Heat pumps, when air over air type, have an extra setting on the thermostat labeled Emergency Heat, Although these thermostats can work on the other types of heating as well.

Both modern Gas and electric furnaces have the blower controlled by a blower board. The flame and or heating elements can also be controlled by the same or a separate board. SO you could have a board problem, or a safety switch or other symptom causing a safety switch to trip off on you.

Consult with your diagram and find something you can recognize then trace the wires down and follow to where you get the power to turn on the heat (usually always R feeds thermostat and W feeds Heat). Colors of the attached wires means nothing at this point. Look for the terminal designations not colors.

Hope this helps you. Please grade me accordingly and GOOD LUCK. :)

I have an amana package system heat pump model number phb30c02e , sometimes the indoor blower will not kick on thus making no air come in the home at all throught the vents, i tried a new copasitor and ...


Sometimes the thermostat can have a burnt place in the fan contacts. This stops the interior fan motor because the compressor wiring is not interconnected to the interior fan. The compressor command is the yellow wire. The interior fan command arrives from the thermostat on the green wire. Check the green wire for delivering 24 volts AC to the fan relay.

During heat, the heat is electrically interconnected with the interior fan. Thus, if the thermostat is bad, the fan will work properly during heating. I know July is a bad time to turn the heat on, but this is a method to see if the interior fan works properly and is not getting the proper command during cooling.
