YOU MUST HAVE THIS THING CHECKED OUT BY AN EXPERT. IT IS A FIRE HAZARD. Even if the thermostat was a closed circuit, the furnace would be working all of the time but it would not be overheating to the point of warping parts. You are either overfiring or your blower is not running all of the time. If it's a blower problem, clean out the dirt and dust and oil the motor. If the motor is not running, replace the fan control or the motor. If the furnace is overheating, your gas regulator might be bad allowing to much gas pressure to the furnace. Also, make sure that the burner orifice's are the correct size for the heater.

I've got a 23 yr old 30DV3 whose pilot light works, and the thermostat & heating element seem to work, but not well. With the thermostat set at full hot, it just barely throws out any heat at all. ...


As I'm sure you already know, Empire Comforts Systems, no longer makes that model heater and hasn't for some years, now. I mentioned that, because if your unit needs parts, they may be almost impossible to get. In any event, there are a several things that may be causing the problem.

  • Low Gas Pressure - Burner is not receiving enough gas. Check for obstructions and have gas pressure at the unit checked.
  • Clogged burner or air intake (venturi valve) is partially clogged. Clean burner ports and venturi valve.
  • Gas line Shut Off Valve at heater not fully open. Check Gas line Shut Off Valve.
At 23 years old, you've gotten your money's worth out of this unit and it may be time to replace it. Empire makes several Direct Vent Wall Furnaces that are rated as High Efficiency Furnaces. In the long run, the money saved in fuel cost, would be worth installing a new one.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.
