I have had the same problem with mine for the last 2 years. Remove the motor on the side of the furnace(usually held on by 3 screws) and turn the fan blades inside by hand. after sitting all summer it seems to get stuck. If it moves freely, replace the motor and try to start it again. This fixed mine the last 2 years! Hope this helped.

Indicator blicks 3 times replaced combustion air switch but did not resolve problem. what do i do now?


There should be a diagnostic chart on the furnace door by the wiring schematic. If so see what the code reads for three blinks.
By the term "air combustion switch" I guess you are referring to the pressure switch. Most diagnostics blinking three times is just a dirty flame sensor. If this is the case the burners will light and go out within 4 seconds. If this is the problem carefully remove the flame sensor and clean gently with emery cloth, fine sandpaper or fine steel wool. Reinsert the sensor and enjoy your heat.

there should be a diagnostic code that will tell you what 3 blinks mean for that model. look on door inside cover. tell me EXACTLY what it does at start up. small draft motor comes on? you see a glow from hot surface ignighter? gas comes on? flame on? it should run in this order.

Usually on a metal panel you have to remove to access the board there is an electrical diagram. On the side of that is usually a description of what specific blinking codes mean.

I have a coleman evcon furnace that wont work. The electrical box green light is not on at all so it cannot pinpoint what the error is. Any thoughts?


Hi, I would just make sure you have power to the furnace. Check breakers or look for the power switch on the electrical box. Also, some mobile homes have a wall switch that cuts power to the furnace.

Green light stays on, red light blinks along with a buzzing noise


colman uses the furnace to power the attic vent fan . Cheaper that way I guess. It just supplies your attic fan with power so it will vent thus keeping your home a little cooler in the summer.
not a big deal. you can shut the alarm with a switch ot cut power to the alarm.

Defective combustion air switch. The 3 blinks are an error code. You didn't say, but I'm guessing you have a Coleman Evcon. They had alot of defective Combustion air switches. Your specialists were not that.
