The biggest items to check after blackout are the circuit boards and the transformer. Also if the furnace was running when it happened, the unit could trip on limit...BUT if this happened the blower would run nonstop with no activity of heat. If no blower, you will need to start with 120v to furnace and then 24v from transformer.

Was going to change out trane xr402 for a Nest. When I couldn't install the nest because I have a 2 stage furnace I put the xr402 back on but now can't get a display


Nest does have a 2 stage stat, but they are pieces of junk just like the single stage ones. Because you did not turn the power off you blew the internal 5 amp, car style, blade fuse. TURN POWER OFF and remove electric panel of furnace and locate fuse. BTW the single stage nest would still work but you will lose your efficiency rating. Always turn power off when messing with wires.

Amana furnace. How do I replace a 4-wire transformer with a 6-wire?


The new transformer should have a description on the side or top. Like: Com, Color, Volt. For example, say you have `120 volts, com-white, black wire - 120 Volts. Make sure you carefully read which wires to use or have a tech come out.

Furnace kicks on then shuts off


Coleman furnaces us a temperature delay with a temperature on around 130F to 150F and off around 110F.

If the inrush of cold air cools the delay below the off temperature the fan will go off until the heater heats it up to the on temperature.

The furnace i have is blinking 3 times with a pause. i have checked the vent pressure switch with an ohm meter. reading is 0. blew into the hose and could hear the click of the limit switch also watch the...


Check your furnace door. Sometimes there is a legend to how many blinking lights means what. I had an issue with mine, read the code and it turns out it was hitting the high heat limit. Turns out my blower motor wasn't turning on. Replaced it with a spare and it was fixed. Find out what type of furnace, and google the name, model, and the words, 3 blinking lights. Does your furnace turn on at all? Does it start to go through the cycle then stop? This is the proper cycle of a furnace and what should happen.

Inducer motor kicks on, it runs for a little bit, about 3-5 seconds, then you should see a bright yellow glow, this is the igniter, shortly after, you should hear a click and the gas should start to flow, almost immediately it turns to a blue flame. Then your igniter should turn off and the blower motor start up.

My aprilaire 700 isn't coming on (no water flow). The front part of the unit has fallen off the furnace twice (held on by plastic nubs/slots...) and blew the furnace fuse/ and circuit breaker probably...


Check for voltaged at the solenoid valve. This will either be a 24 volt or 110 volt solenoid valve. Confirm power into the unit 110 volts. If you have power into the unit and no voltaged at the solenoid valve on a call for humidification at the humidistat than the circuit board or the step down transfgormer has failed.. If you do have voltage at the solenid valve than the valve has failed.

I have a coleman evcon electric furnace ,it was running and would not cutoff the heat got up to around 90 thhe thermostad said it was running in aux ,so I turn the main breaker off and the in a few minute...


If the thermostat is ok which it probably is then your sequencer is most likely stuck i would say. You could verify that by removing 24 volts to the sequencer to see if it will shut down the heater
themobilian_598.jpg When low voltage from the thermostat is applied at the base of this sequencer it heats a bi-metal and turns on each coil and fan in a sequence that will insure the breaker don't throw from the power surge AND warm air comes out the vents when that fan comes on. I would start there.

Blower motor stopped, there is a medium-loud ''electric buzz'' sound every minute or so as if trying to start the blower motor. Could be relay switch. Last week, I extracted the entire motor and fan...


you have a bad "starting capacitor" .. the capacitor is used to get the motor to start in the correct direction .. when its bad the motor doesnt know which way to turn so it just sits there buzzing until it gets hot .. that trips a thermal breaker in the motor and shuts it off ... when it cools it tries again .. dont let it do that for a long time since you could damage the moter eventually ... the starting cap is a round cyclinder probably mounted close to or on the motor (wires come from it to the motor) .. they are not expensive .. you can take the old one with you to a motor parts place so they can match it up with a new one ..

while the motor is buzzing .. if you spin the blower it will start in whatever direction you spin it ... it will run until its shut off but then wont start on its own again ... changing the starting cap will fix that ..
