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.

Heated seats dont work


Its hard to say without looking at it in person. sounds like you have a electrical short in the wiring systems or blown fuse bad switch. The heating element in the seat could also be burnt out and need replacing. best thing to do is locate the wiring system underneath the seat and test the current if any going into the seat heating element. if you do get voltage/current following, then the seat element is bad.

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.

Have a model 3500A820 furnace that heats but blower doesn't come on. Shouldn't elements go off in this case. Really over heated, scary!


Turn the blower to manual on at thermostat if you can.

Most electric furnaces have a overtemp switch to shut off the elements. If it is auto reset then it could be shutting off and you would not know it.

If its a manual reset it should shut everything down,
its possible that it is not sensing the plenum temp.
If you can trace your blower wires and it is multispeed,if you can see which wire is tied in with
the heat circuit, change it with another wire, it is
possible that you may have a burnt out speed on blower motor

Kenmore electric range - oven temp low and takes forever to heat


if lower element tests open with continuity meter then it for sure is bad. i would also check the wire ends that connect to the element and/or the control board, they could have loosened allowing a bad connection and low voltage to elementor burnt off.. most ovens do not use the broil element at all during the bake cycle, only during the broil cycle.. some however do utilize the broil element during baking, but at a lower wattage or something..
best of luck,

Broiler element comes on when "bake" is pressed


does the bake element come on at all?
if so, try the oven out. do a bake @ 350 allow it to pre-heat, and see if once the pre-heat is comlete, id the broil shuts off.
on many ovens at the beginning of the cycle during pre-heat both bake and broil elements are powered.

other than that it may be a control board, or a burnt and crossed wire in the harness.

The black wire burnt off on the line going into the heating elem


No, you do not need to remove the drum. But you will need to remove the cover from the blower assembly. Using a volt meter, check the elements continuity to determine if it is bad or good.

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.
