The fan will no longer turn on. Yesterday it would turn on for a minute or two but soon after I put on the rotate setting it would shut off. What do I do? should I clean it? Is there a way to fix it?

My furnace is an older type furnace and it was working fine yesterday but the blower won't shut off after it runs for a while it run continueally I was wondering what I could do to fix this pr


When you say 'older furnace' I am assuming old enough to where there is no circuit board. They will usually have a thermally activated 'fan-limit' switch with a bi-metal sensing device. Most older furnaces had either a Honeywell or a White-Rodgers controller and they look almost identical. With the furnace door off, look towards the top of the furnace vestibule (above the flame area) for a rectangular box approximately 3 1/2" wide by 5" long. Tap the side of the box with a screwdriver and if the thermostat setpoint has been satisfied and the gas burners have been off for more than three minutes, the fan should then shut off. The switch contacts are either stuck together OR the bimetal sensing device is weakening from thousands of cycles.

If it continues to run, squeeze the sides of the 'lid' of the box and remove the cover. Inside you'll see a round moveable dial with three pointers, marked 'fan off, fan on, and limit'. The 'limit' should remain at or near the 200 degree setting, the 'fan on' can be anywhere around 140 and the 'fan off' can be anywhere near 100 degrees. It is the 'fan off' position thats giving you the grief.

Turn the thermostat up again and sit there and watch the dial do its thing and yo'll understand better how this control works. Watch it rotate past the 'fan on' setting and observe the fan turn on. Turn the thermostat below room temperature and watch the gas shut off and the dial rotate back towards the 'fan off' setting. If it hangs up again before twisting past the setpoint, you can slightly increase the setting to compensate for the weakening bi-metal element. But just a tiny bit, not a great amount or you will have the fan shutting off with a lot of residual heat still in the heat exchanger. The idea of the delay in shutting off the fan is to remove all that residual heat and transfer it to the house.

There are other brands that utilized 'timed on' fan controls, and there are a few other variances of controllers but what's described above should cover the vast majority of older furnaces.

Remember there is ELECTRICITY inside the fan control and any adjustments should be done with the power OFF !!!!

Are the cooling fans supposed to come on as soon as you start the car? I ran the car for 10 minutes and the fans didn't come on.


the fans are set ,, if the car thermostat hasn't released and rotated the inner water , they may not have come on yet , but the answer to your question is no, Not until the sensors detect a temp that turns them on

Coleman furnace and the fan takes awhile to come on then runs for about a minute then shuts down. im thinking the fan cycling switch was moved and now takes longer to reach temp


If it operates on a fan/limit switch it is possible the settings are wrong. Typical settings are: Fan Off-110F Fan On-140F High Limit-170F. If these are correct, you probably have a bad f/l switch. The bi-metal spring in these switches fatigue and will not rotate the switch smoothly.

No power


Hi,
You can easily done, Right click your desktop and choose Properties. Select the Screen Saver tab and at the bottom choose Power. In the Power Schemes drop down box choose Always On and the PC will never turn off. You might also want to disable or set the time higher for your screen saver.
Please rate this solution accordingly.

or another solution , its because CPU get hot. check the cpu fan or clean that, heatsink of cpu fan must be clean and closed to cpu.

Thanks

1st two speeds not working


If the fans rotate on high, then they can rotate on low. So it's either the remote or the receiver that's not succeeding in adjusting the speed. You might try changing the dip switch settings to a different combination and see if that helps. Otherwise, my first guess is that it's the receiver since it has the "brains" of the unit. Also, with electronics it sometimes helps to completely remove all sources of electricity for a minute in order to reset everything. That would mean turning off the circuit that powers the fan for a minute then flipping it back on.

Rheem heat pump. blower will not turn off


The fans are set to delay for 60-90 seconds to remove all heat from the heat exchanger/heater elements.

If the fan runs any longer than 3-4 minutes after the Emergency Heat shuts off, you may have a bad sequencing relay in the air handler.

Standby LED flashes red 4 times with pause then 4 times


You either have a bad fan or one of the rotation sensors mounted on one of the fans has failed. Take the back off the set and see it the main fan slightly right of center is rotating. If it is, there are two more fans, one mounted right above the lamp and another on the optical block itself. You will have to pull the optical block to check those.

Hi Fayez,

How soon does the laptop switch off? Immediately, or a few minutes into booting into Windows, or ... ?

It could be an overheating issue. If you're using it on your lap or on a soft surface such as a couch or bed, the fan might not be able to release the heat.

Try putting something underneath the back of the laptop and place it on a stable surface such as a desk and boot it up - see if it still shuts down.

Otherwise, let me know how soon it's switching off, or at what point if it's the same point every time.
