Trouble shoot Dayton gas furnace model GG9S100C16MP11A fan is left on constant but in cold weather 10 or colder fan will go off and furnace will go thru a restart mode and run fine for awhile then will do...


Do not run contentiously during heat mode. the fan runs at a slower speed with heat and heat fires first then the fan cycles on during heat cycle then when heat satisfies the thermostat the heat will cycle off and fan will run for a couple more minutes and then cycle off. So set stat on fan cycle to auto.

Can i hook up a thermostat to my hot blast wood/coal stove to control the heat in my home


Yes, you most certainly can. It depends on how handy you are and to what extent you are willing to go to make this happen. A lot will depend on how comfortable you are with electrical wiring and understanding HVAC controls and their function.

First though, this is the typical way a wood fired forced air furnace is designed to operate. There is a control transformer and relay to control either a combustion air fan (that you do not have) OR a motorized damper for combustion air that you also do not have. The relay closes on a call for heat from the thermostat and opens the damper from its minimum position to allow combustion air into the firebox. As long as there is solid fuels (wood) in the heat chamber, the fresh supply of combustion air will allow the fire to burn or begin to burn very quickly.

As the temperature in the wood furnace plenum increases, the automatic fan control will start the fan and it will run as long as the bonnet temperature is higher than the fan'on' setpoint on the fan control... Now the house warms up and the thermostat satisfies which allows the combustion air damper to spring back to the minimum position, causing the hot fire to die down due to lack of combustion air.

The now smoldering fire will not generate enough heat to keep the fan running too long, so the automatic fan control shuts the fan off until the house cools approximately 2 degrees below thermostat setpoint. The thermostat calls for heat and opens the damper and on goes the cycle....

An important item to remember is that on the automatic fan control, there is a 'limit switch' function. The motorized combustion air damper or the combustion air fan must be wired through the limit switch in case the bonnet temperature exceeds 200 degrees F. This function will then allow the damper to go to the minimum position or the combustion air fan to go off, causing the fire to cool down due to lack of adequate combustion air.

You don't want the thermostat controlling the circulating fan directly, because of two things: 1). If the fire is out, there is no heat to circulate but the thermostat wouldn't know that and it would start and run the fan continuously until a fire is built. and ....
2). You would still be running up and down the stairs monitoring the fires burn rate by opening and closing the lower door manually.

ALL the components you need are readily available from WW Grainger....basically : a fan/limit control
a thermostat
a 110v x 24v 40 va control transformer
a 24v spdt relay
20 ga. two conductor thermostat wire
24v actuator and linkages to mount to the existing combustion air damper. A bit of creativity is required here. I would not recommend retro-fitting a combustion air fan.
14-2 wg romex for wiring the fan control

Again, it depends to what extent you are willing to go to achieve the end result. Will it be exactly like a new system?? No, but it will operate a lot better than that which you describe.

Have a paslode 350 it wont fire/ have spark, have new gas, fan works ,what could be wrong


The primary cause of a Paslode not firing is from a dirty combustion chamber. Try cleaning it with Paslode cleaner and as long as you have good fuel, good spark, and the fan works, it should fire.

Help- when heater gets to room temp. the circulating fan stops, but fire remains in combustion chamber and the blower motor or exhaust fan continues to run for hours. Toyostive laser 56MH thanks Jim...


Sir,

If there was a flame in the burner and no circulating fan running the stove would over heat in less than 5 minutes. It would show an EE 6 message. Are you sure there is a flame in the pot? The stove does have a safety feature that allows the combustion fan and circulating fan to run continuously in certain cases. This is a rather extreme case. In any event the circulating fan would be running at the same time the combustion fan was on. To get out of that mode turn the stove off and on again. Now you should be able to restart normally. Keep us posted,

Thanks,

Tom

Rheem digital gas pool heater fan code


The Fan code would indicate a problem with the combustion air blower. The is a pressure switch to indicate there is sufficent combustion air, and if not then unit shuts down. Either the fan isn't running, or there is an obsturction in the fan or exhaust piping, preventing enough air flow.
cfh would be call for heat, which would be a normal display when water temp is below setpoint
See the link below for a manual. Once you open the page look on lower right side for documents, then install manual

1998 Chevy Prizm A/C and Cooling Fan Problems


Compressor could not work without cooling fan comming on.
Check compressor mounting bolts and belt placement on pulley regarding the noise.
But before we get to the a/c system repairs its important to have a properly working cooling system.

Is the car overheating ? It should if neither fan works.
If I recall correctly the fan switch is usually on the upper radiator hose coupling.
you may want to test the fan(s) its self. Remove the electical connectors fron the fan(s) , fabricate a set of jumper wires and run it from the battery. If this works the fan(s) are ok . If it doesn't replace the ones that don't work.
The coolant switch aka fan switch is usually tested with an ohmmeter . Use shop manual for testing procedure.
Test the a/c fan and engine cooling fan relays. (see shop manual for details)
Then I would start looking at coolant( correct mixture and thermostat2_bing.gif) although the thermostat is not likely to cause this.
If all of this still doesn't correct the problem it may be the ECU that monitors this system it may not be responding to the signal /voltage from coolant temp sensor to turn on the fan, (again nedd shop manual to test this)
Once you have a properly working cooling systemnow you can turn your focus on the a/c. Compressors either work or they don't.For you safety I recommend having the a/c system serviced by a ASE certified Technician or a tech's who legally can perform a/c service. Good luck

Combustion fan isn't running


Ther is a guy names Murphy that it resposible for that. Go back through the steps you used to change the auger motor and see if maybe there was a wire left out or if the combustion motor is also out. What caused the outage? If a voltage spike, it could have taken them both out. The only other thing I can think of is a main switch somewhere. Good luck...Lee

Monitor 41 heater not getting fuel


The problem would be in the inducer or combustion motor not starting up and running. This is a safety or one of several in you're system. When the fan comes on, the draft sends air to a switch telling you're unit that fan is on and ready to fire up.If the fan fails, no heat.Check for voltage to the fan motor. Even though it is free doesn't mean that it will work anymore.If there is no power to the motor, on a call for heat, you need to look at the schematic and find out where this motor gets its power. If there is power, remove it and try and find a dealer online or near by to where you can get one.It has to be working. I am surprised the burners come on at all.
Good Luck Wayne, and please let me know what you find out. Sincerely, Shastalaker7

Combustion fan and circulating fan running and no heat


Check near the squirrel cage fan and see if there is a sail switch.  Sometimes these are used to confirm air movement prior to firing off the gas furnace.  It is simply a square piece of metal on a stick that attaches to a microswitch.  This switch is then depressed when the fan pushes the air (and the metal piece) allowing the burner to fire off.
Hope this helps.
