Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Hello, I need to replace my furnace control board #HH84AA015. I found the replacement part fairly quickly. Also found a bad transformer,#HTO1BC115 (primary winding indicates 'open' with ohm meter, applied 120vac to primary and found no secondary voltage present ). What, in your estimation, could cause this transformer to burn out? Could this cause damage to the control board? Any help would be greatly appreciated. The connector/plug is also showing signs of damage, but I need help locating it.

Hello,The transformer (breaks) if the secondary is shorted for any reason.Also a power surge to the house/building will kill it (lighting strike/car hitting telephone pole).It might cause damage to the board.It is cheaper to try a new transformer BUT add a inline 3 amp fuse in the secondary so that will be the last transformer you have to replace(just fuses)if the short is hard to find.Power up the old board & see if it works,unless there is obvious damage.The plug sometimes comes with a new board because there is a wiring change to install it(on some) replacement boards.

This is a propane furnace that continues to run even after being shut off and plenum cools. No chimmey just pvc pipe to exhaust outside. Does that help.

The fact that the plenum cools down suggests that the thermostat is satisfying its setpoint and correctly turning off the gas flow....but....if the blower is continuing to run after the plenum cools down, it indicates the blower relay on the control board is stuck in the closed position (if it is a newer style furnace) OR the "fan' portion of the 'fan-limit' control is stuck closed if it is an older furnace.

If it is a newer one with a circuit board, the board cannot be field must be replaced. Some furnace nmanufacturers have a secondary board that controls the fan alone and is cheaper than the furnaces with the single 'control board' that performs all functions of the heating/blower sequence.

Unless you have a fair amount of understanding of electricity, you should at this point call a service company for service.

Furnace blower motor does not turn on

Hello, this can be a problem withnthe control board, capacitor, or the motor itself is bad. Try jumping the L1 wire with the low voltage motor wire , if this gets the motor running the control board is bad. If the board apperas fine and you have power to the motor then try to spin the blower wheel by hand, if this starts the motor then the capacitor is bad and will need to be replaced. if none of the above work the motor will need to be replaced.

Goodman furnace fan runs all the time

Hello, this can be caused by a bad relay on the integrated control board or a short in the low voltage wiring. Easy way to check is unhook the green wire from the G terminal on the control board, if it stops there is a short in tje wiring, if it does not stop the control board must be replaced due to a bad relay.

How doI replace the motherboard on a American Standard Freedom 80?

Hello, to replace the intergrated control board on your furnace you need to turn off main power to your furnace, then label the wires so you will know where they go on the new board. Then just take the old board to a hvac supply store and they will give you a replacement and just connect the wires to it and turn on Furnace.

Hello, The first thing you need to check with a multimeter is if you are getting 24 volts between the R AND C terminal on the intergrated control board. If not than the transformer is blown and needs to replaced or the fuse on the control board has blown and will need to be replaced. When check for 24 volts at the R and C terminal make sure the door switch is pushed in, u can just use electrical tape to temporaily hold the switch in. If you are getting 24 volts at R and C and notthing continues to run than the intergrated control board is most likely the cause and must be replaced.

Ignitor last a day then goes bad again going on 4th try help .

You are getting improper voltage to the ignitor. Check all grounds both in the furnace as well as at every connection heading back to the circuit breaker panel. If you find none, you will need to replace the circuit board.
