Smoke coming from furnace

We have an intertherm ultraflex electric furnace in our mobile home, when we put the safety switch in and cut the furnace on, it heats up and smoke comes out. What could be causing this and how can we fix it?

You may have something (paper,dust, etc.) on the electric coils. There may also be a short in the element.

Intertherm gas furnace in mobile home..igniter comes on then nothing tries to fire byrners but nothing


by igniter I assume you mean the thermocoupler. are you turning the control button to run after you light the pilot light? Normally when those furnaces quit it is the thermocoupler that has quit. Get a new one and leave it in the furnace compartment as a spare.

Have an Intertherm thermostate in mobile home controlling gas hearing and elec ac. Blue wire to thermostat connects to the "A" terminal on the thermostat...Blue wire goes to a terminal on the...


If there are only two wires going to the thermostat? Then you will not be able to use a Digital Programable stat. Intertherm and Coleman furnaces do the switching different than regular furnaces. They use the switching from heat to AC at the furnace with the rocker switch. They use the thermostat to either break the connection or make the connection. They use a heating only thermostat.... Hope this helps

Sometimes the furnace doesn't come on when it should


OK so its an all electric furnace no gas? I cant think of anything clicking on an electric furnace except the sequencers or the safety switches.

If this is whats your hearing then the fan should definitely be running.

Feel carefully around the fan motor (I assume this is in a mobile home). See if you detect any heat coming around the blower area close to the fan motor. If so the fan motor may be at fault or one sequencer may be out (the main one of course...) the thing is can you get the fan to come on by turning the auto switch on the thermostat (or if older model the Auto On switch on the furnace) to ON? If so you can "limp by and have heat til someone either checks it or you can go on deeper into it. but to go deeper you'll have to let me know you know where the elements are and that you have a volt meter. and feel comfortable using it especially on HOT wires.

Intertherm ultraflex mobile home furnace


Is this a 120v motor, or 220v? If you checked for power, I assume you kind of know your way around a meter. When checking for power, don't check to ground, check the line. You could have power going in, but unless its going back out, completing the circuit, or missing a leg, in 220v case, it still will not work. Also, most heaters have some sort of delay, so after you hook it back up, and the burner heats up wait a few minutes for the fan to come on.

Intertherm E1EH-015HA FURNACE no heat


Sounds like a downflow electric furnace? If so it sounds like you have 15kw worth of electric heat, you might have a defective heating sequencer, witch is what they call a dual on one plate.
