Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Over the summer we shut our thermostats off so that our furnace would not turn on since the weather was beautiful. But we noticed that our heaters in our downstairs part of our house were warm. The furnace did not sound like it was on, but for some reason, the heaters were emitting heat. In order to stop this, we had to manually shut off the valves on the furnace. This stopped the heat from coming out of the heaters. But now that it is fall, I have the thermostats on and even when the temperature is high enough that the thermostats don't turn on, the heaters downstairs are warm and emitting heat. Thus wasting oil. Why is this happening and how can it be fixed?

Goodman furnace fan cylcing


The fan switch is set to turn on at approximately 125 degrees and run until the heat exchanger temp drops to around 105 degrees. With age the sensitivity of this switch varies and summer heat can cause the switch to turn on if the outside temp is over 100 degrees. Only the fan is running, not the burner but you can shut off the power to the unit if this is an issue.

Hello, one way to check is remove the green wire from the G termimal on the circuit board in the Furnace, if tn
His turns it off it may be a short in the tstat wiring or bad thermostat, if it does not turn it off the relay on tne control board is stuck and tne entire board must be replaced.

Just moved into this house and notice the furnace not working right It is and older unit know name or writing on it I rehooked up wiring to it but now blower run all the time and the only to shut off is...


Older furnaces used to have a fan switch that read winter or summer, or auto and on. You should also have a fused switch to the furnace, wiring runs black to the switch thru the fuse and to the furnace black wire. White wire is straight to furnace from electrical panel. This is for power feed to furnace only. Now the thermostat is red to the transformer white to white. This was a very simple old furnace they had very little safety devises. The fan switch was an older high end model so you could blow the cool air from the basement thru out the whole house in the summer, and the fan ran constantly.

Dometic/Duotherm propane furnace won't fire up


If this unit has a spark ignition you may just need to clean the flame sensor. It is a metal rod protruding in the path of the flame.

Need to know which terminals run what


Had similar problem, continuous fan, turn off power, then won't start up. Replaced thermostat, no change. The main controller board in the furnace went bad. What was weird was that it happened in the summer, while the heat was turned off. One day I noticed that the fan was running. The thermostat was in the off position, and I had to shut off power to the furnace to make it stop. I forgot about it till heating season came along and it wouldn't start up. The preliminary blower would start, the gas would click on, it would light, then quit. After tracing and checking the various safety switches, etc. it became apparrent the main board was bad. I found one on ebay, replaced it, [a simple job, unplug, a few screws, replug] and it's been working fine..good luck, John

Heater won't shut off.


you say you hear a click. this indicates the relay is opening and closing, BUT the contacts may have welded itself shut. try replacing the relay - contactor.

Heater blower motor cycles on and off (frequently). I have a class 2 LR95329 Honeywell Thermostat


The clicking noise is a relay or switch of some sort. You are right about that. I have 2 questions. 1) does the thermostat have a mercury bulb in it? 2) when the fan shuts off and on, does the burner stay on?
