On the web the start capacitor for the blower seemed to be the most likely culprit, as relayed in this forum:

This makes sense, since caps dry out and go bad after a few years.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Blower motor goes off


The ecm controlled motors are know for ecm failure. They do not like high speed(T5 terminal connection). Normally when the ecm is acting up the blower will not work at all. But I've seen em run for a bit then quit. The motor probably needs a new ecm

I have a White Rodgers 50E47-843 Ignition control, my gas furnace gets the call for heat and the exhaust fan starts and runs for 1 min before the LED lights yellow for 2 seconds and then starts the hot...


A certain sequence of events has to occur to start normal operation. My furnace would start the stack blower which would then run forever without the furnace starting up. The service tech replaced the stack blower controller and the ignitor to get things running right again. Remember that some stages of startup are temperature dependent. For example, the burner has to heat the bonnet enough to close a thermal switch and turn on the main.blower.

WEATHER KING GAS FURNACE . BLOWER MOTOR COMES ON INSTANTLY ON CALL FOR HEAT AND WONT SPARK IGNITE.


You have a high temp safety open. The control board sends a signal through all safeties first. And if there is a safety open, the board believes the unit is overheating, so it engages the blower to cool it down. The safeties are normally on the blower assembly, near the burners, and near the heat exchanger. Hope this helps!

I have an old Intertherm gas-fired furnace, Model MGH-055AB which ceased operating last night. It was quite warm when I arrived home, and when I set the heat up a little, began to hum, but the fan would...


Tom P's answer is generally correct: The motor start capacitor is usually not the problem. However, in some cases, particularly on older furnaces, where there were capacitors of certain make and production run will prematurely fail. This happened in March on a mobile home HVAC unit where both the blower fan and condenser fan motor capacitors failed open circuit. Both caps were of the same Mfg, and production lot.
Here is a suggestion (for you or an electrically inclined friend): Locate a substitute motor capacitor having similar Mfd (or MF) and Voltage ratings. Remove power from the unit. Reach into the blower squirrel cage and spin it to verify that the shaft is not frozen. Pull the wires from the existing capacitor noting color and location. Connect the wires to the substitute capacitor and secure it place. Apply power and turn on the blower. A no start? Motor replacement time.

Need your model # to check the codes but, this coming back on after turning the t-stat off is rare. You may have been in a lockout and the furnace re-started. Some furnaces try to start three times , then lock out. Time out, then re-start. The codes should be on your furnace blower door. Write back with this info and i could help.

Gas Furnace will not start when outside temperature rises to 50F


There is a pressure switch near your draft inducer motor that needs to close when draft inducer motor is running. Verify that the switch is closing. If it is not closing, you might have a problem with either the switch itself, or there could be some sort of blockage in your flue. I would start with the switch first. This switch has to "prove" before it will allow anything else to happen. The loud click could be from your switch or your gas valve. If the switch is closing and nothing else is happening, it could be a problem with your gas valve or HSI.

Depending on the model of the furnace, the blower is either a 2 or 3 speed. When the furnace operates in heating mode with the thermostat in the auto position, the furnace starts the fan when the furnace reaches a specific temperature or after a set time delay, but it operates the fan in low or med low speed on heat mode, when you put the thermostat fan switch in the "ON" position, the furnace operates the fan in "HI" speed, the same speed used for cooling mode. You may have a blower moter that is starting to short. I would recommend having a professional replace the motor before now before it becomes an emergency in the middle of the night during a cold spell.
