Furnace blower keeps burning up the wires inside the motor. Repair guy is baffled. Amp okay but to many volts sometimes. Before we shell out for a new furnance anyone have any idea as why this might be happening?

Need to wire furnace blower


Gas valve should only have a couple of wires...24 Volt & common. the blower will use one speed on a gas furnace & a common. If you have AC or a fan switch on your thermostat, then the high speed will also be connected on the blower.

Heating elements keep coming on and off after blower turns off


Yes your sequencer is the switch to energize the elements & sometime the low speed on the blower motor. It completes the 240 volts going to the elements. The sequencer turns the elements on in stages as well as the blower, & most sequencers have numbers on the side to tell what thermal disk turns on first. The blower, & one element should be wired on the 1 & 2 terminals (this turns on first when the sequencer coil is energized & shuts off last when the coil is de-energized). If any of the thermal discs are stuck closed, this will constantly energize the element on that switch.

THERMOSTAT HAS NO POWER


Hi, yes the thermostat feed does come off the furnace from the transformer. That's where it gets it 24 volt supply, 120 volts is stepped down to 24 volts for the controls. If it trips the main breaker, it may be a matter of the wires that feed the breaker are loose and this will cause the breaker to over heat and trip. Shut it off and tighten the wires.The breaker may also be weak. This is a high voltage problem. So, anything that runs off of this breaker can cause it to trip, like the blower motor may be drawing to much amperage. Make sure there is no lint build up on the motor or in the windings or on the blower wheel also. My guess would be the breaker is burned or wires are loose creating enough heat to trip it at times. This is where you will need to start. Keep me posted. If you have a amprobe you can check the rated amps on the data plate of all motors and see what they are drawing under a load. If not, you will have to see whats getting hot, breaker, motors ect. Keep me updated as you will be able to find the problem. Like I said, my bet would be the breaker is going. You can also kill power and pull the breaker to look for any hot or burned spots on it. Concentrate there first.
Best of luck, you should find it quickly.

Furnace lights fan comes on then fan goes off furnace stays light until overtemp takes it out code flashes 4


Have some one hold the bottom door safety switch, turn furnace on wait until heating fan relay clicks, and check at terminal (Heat) & terminal (neutral or where all the white wires are located on the control board) for 115 volts to 120 volts. If voltage is present replace blower motor, if voltage drops out while running then replace control board.Turn power off to furnace, open bottom door and feel blower motor with hand, if motor is real hot replace motor. you can not oil this type of motor, it has to be replaced along with the compacitor. Good luck.

Ruud furnace Model URKA A030jK08 Code opt 589


Flip the lower panel over and look for a wiring diagram. On that diagram there will be a diagnostic chart. Let me know what 5 blinks represent. Then I want you to read on.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

My furnace keeps burning wires in the fuse box... right before it does it will kick on and off rapidly.


Check the Amp draw of the furnace. May turn out to be a bad blower motor.
