    i appreciate your help, that makes sense.

    Is that a part that a non-mechanical person can buy and replace or should i call a professional?

    thanks again.

No the humidifier is okay the problem is the element inside the heater. It is drawing too many amps and needs to be replaced. I can go into the reason I say that but would be talking about resistance and electrical circuits. Which gets real boring real quick. Just had the same problem couple weeks ago so it is real fresh in my mind. let me know if you need any more help. That electrical element just pulls out of cabinet and then get a new element kinda like a clothes drier element. Don't touch the element with your fingers use some gloves to install.

    you can buy it. Just have to know what the kilowatt rating is 5k or 7.5k that is the only thing you need to know. You can see that on the front of the box where the heating element is located.

York furnace .induced draft motor runs when t stat is off


Sounds like a bad thermostat or stuck motor control relay. Turn off the breaker at the unit or in the electrical panel to kill the motor and see if cutting power, if relay is bad, cycles off and stays, but you should leave power off and call for service right away.

Where is the switch to the furnace to shut blower off?


There is a switch, activated when you open the service panel, that kills most power to the unit, including the DI Blower motor. Your furnace should also be equipped with an exterior kill switch, or there's always the good old breaker box. Good Luck!

My central AC is a York Diamond 80 (also my furnace). Thermostat set on Cool, isn't cooling. and when i shut thermostat off, it continues to blow air. red light flashing inside unit code = Limit switch...


Hi,
One of the limit switch in the furnace is tripped or went bad....
Try to find all of the reset switches and push the little red button on the top to reset them...
If that don't work you will need to take an electric meter and test each switch to see which one is bad...

York gas furnace doesn't come on at all. It has electronic ignition, thermostat seems ok, circuit breaker Ok. There is nothing going on at all. It doesn't try to light.


First find the electronic control board. Is the diagnostic light on and flashing a code? If not look for the automotive type fuse on the board. It is a 3 amp. Is it blown? Next look for a screw in fuse in the ssu switch on the side of the furnace. Is it blown? If all the fuses are good is the door switch behind the front cover working? Is the door properely installed? If all these items are working, you should have power to the furnace. If these items are ok, check for 24volts at the transformer. Check the terminals not black and white. If you have voltage there, remove the red and white thermostat wires on the control board. Next take jump wire and jump the red and white terminals. This rules out the stat and stat wiring. Your furnace should start. Check the status light for any further problems and crossreference the flashing light code to fix.

Heater keeps going off on its on also fan not


Please provide more info. When it goes off does it come back on by itself or do you have to flip a breaker? Is the furnace gas or electric? If it is not moving enough air across your heat exchanger in a gas furnace or across electric heating elements this will trip a safety switch that will stop heating but not fan. Low air speed is most likely from inexperienced or improper duct design/ installation. Duct sizing is very important to move enough air. Don't believe me try breathing thru a straw. If your unit is a gas furnace it has a flashing code that will tell you what is wrong codes listed inside unit door. Could be lots of things. Reply with more info.

My blower motor will not stop running,and my ignitor doesn't light.


I am assuming you are talking about a Natural Gas or LP furnace. The blower motor is powered by a separate 120 volt circuit, so flipping the 240 volt breaker for the furnace will not shut it off. There should be a regular light switch at the furnace that will turn off the blower for servicing the unit. When you take the cover off the unit, there should be instructions on how to re-set the igniter. If it won't re-set, try shutting off the gas for a few minutes, then turn it back on and then reset. If none of this works, and you can't find the owners manual, call a service technician.

My gas forced air furnace is shutting itself off after 2-3 cycles


there is a thermo-sensor switch next to the circuit board that tells the fan switch to turn on when the plenum is hot enough. this needs to be replaced.
