In the thermostat is a anticipator which controls the cycles.

Either the anticipator is set wrong or the thermostat is bad.

Gas Furnace Repair - Steps to Troubleshoot the Problem Yourself

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your gas furnace is not heating. You know that is has power because the lights are blinking showing you some kind of weird code. But it is getting colder by the minute and you wonder if there is anything that you can do. Here are some basic things that the homeowner can check.

The lights blink a crazy combination of on and off sequences. The furnace is trying to talk to you. The problem is that you don’t understand the language. The language of the furnace can be very confusing if you do not know what the problems that the furnace is trying to tell you through the flashing codes is.

Before running to the phone to call the heater guy to decipher the codes there are some thing that you should check. First and most important make sure that the power is on to the furnace. If there are no lights flashing on the circuit board that is a good indication that you probably have a power problem.

Now that you know that there is power, recycle the power on and off. This will often reset the brain of the furnace and wipe out the problem so that it will try to go through the startup cycle again. If the problem was temporary, like low voltage, or low gas pressure the furnace may light up and be fine.

If the furnace stops during the lighting cycle then you may have other issues and will need to look into the problem further with the help of a professional. Of course you need to make sure that your flue is not blocked or that the filter in the furnace is clean. These things are common causes of problems and can easily be fixed.

These are the first basic steps to trouble shooting your furnace problem. To check out the problem further you may need some specialized tools to find out where the problem lies.
Make sure that you at least try these things before calling a professional to save yourself the expense of a service call that is only a couple of minutes long and makes your feel like you are paying the guy to bush a button and run again.

Believe me when I tell you this. There have been many calls that I have had that were just a matter of recycling the power and then leaving the bill. Do not let this happen to you!

Furnace fails to run, hearing a continuing clicking sound, but no flame

This sometimes happens when gas supply may be low. Try turning off your master switch and then back on to recycle the igniter circuit. If it continues, call you service representative.

Ruud furnace 2 blinking green light

The ventpipe heat limit, fan limit, and chamber limits are only a few of the safeties that turn a furnace off when something is getting too hot. I recommend a qualified technician have a look at it.

Rv furnace stopped working

Quick call the installer to see if it is still under warranty. There is something wrong if the motor is being replaced every other year. Most of the motors should be lubed with fan turbine oil and not 3 in 1, nor detergent containing oils. If the wrong oil is used, the bearings will go south in 1 to 2 years.

Brand New Ducane Furnace with Multiple Error Codes

Check your drain line. It appears that water is not draining and backing up into the furnace. Is there a drain trap? If not or if there is no vent on the drain line there can be a vacuum created when the furnace is running and it actually pulls water back into the furnace and when the inducer shuts off it releases the vacuum allowing the water to drain.

I have a goodman mfg gmp100-4 furnace. When I turn theromsat to heat I hear blowing for sixty seconds but that is all that happens. What should I check first?

Your furnace has a combustion blower on it. If it runs and don't pull in the vacuum switch the furnace will not start. On the combustion blower you will find a little rubber hose follow that hose to the vacuum switch. You will see 2 wires on the vacuum switch connect the 2 wires on the vacuum switch together. If your furnace starts and runs fine for 15 to 20 minutes you need a new vacuum switch. Try this first

in this image A is vacuum switch B is combustion blower

Hope this helps......
