I would look at fan limit switch. They are normally located in electrical cotrol compartment. If your are lucky you will have one thats adjustable. It would helpful if I knew is your home a mobile or modular home as they usually use a button type limit on fan and hi limit. It sounds to me like you may be having problems with fan limit which controls temp. that fan comes on . Often what happens is that switch scenses temp to turn on and then draws cold enough air on return air to shut back down until temp.rises again.If this occurs when unit first comes on or continues after burner shuts off you can get a limit switch with a higher temperature rating or one that has adjustable temperature range. Hope this helps you.Thanks.

Furnace reaches temperature set then shuts down and restarts 8 times before final shutdown.


When you say the the furnace re-starts 8 times before shut down, what is cycling 8 times? just the indoor blower or is the main burner re-firing 8 times? If it's only the fan it sounds like the fan control.

Coleman 7900 Series Furnace. Fan comes on first then blower comes on. This is backwards.


combustion fan comes on first the blower comes on when it gets to temp so it can blow hot air ?

Pilot and burner light then gas shut off model 7900


How many degrees before it reaches desired temp, does it shut off? A thermostat is designed to shut the furnace off a couple/ few degrees before it reaches set temp. It has what is called a heat anticipater, which shuts the burner down, and lets the blower use the remaining heat from the heat exchanger to bring it up to desired temp making it more efficient. If it is more than a few degrees, replace the thermostat. You can jump out the red and white wires to confirm the faulty thermostat. If by doing this, the furnace never shuts down, until you separate the red and white wires. That confirms a faulty thermostat. Hope this helps someone.

How old is your furnace? Does it have a circuit board that controls everything, or are there separate controls for each function?

  • Hey, nofarmark91


    Turn the Coleman furnace system switch to the "Off" position on the electric service panel.

  • Locate the manual reset switch near the left side of your furnace blower. Your Coleman furnace has an upper limit switch for manual reset and a lower limit switch for automatic reset.

  • Press the reset button, which you will find in the middle of the limit switch. Use this manual reset button when the furnace burner will not operate. (See Reference 1 pg 4 "The Furnace Controls and their Function/Important" & Reference 4 # 3)

  • Turn the system switch to the "On" position.

  • Good Luck

    I have 3 coleman a/c and 2 suburban furnaces. 1 of furnaces burner cycles exessively while there is still a call for heat but blower runs normally. Could this be t-stat(coleman zoned) or limit switch?


    you have multiple stages of heating and not all of the stages are operating. it could be a limit switch, that would be a very good place to start.(stages or zones)

    Coleman presidential II furnace blower on and off


    Sounds like the flame sensor. But it could be the thermostat. Is the furnace standing pilot or electronic spark or hot surface ignition. I would start by checking thermostat. Turn power off to furnace take thermostat off wall and take wires marked r & w and connect them together. Turn power back on if furnace works then change out thermostat.Most eclectronic ignition Furnaces have a flam sensor, You could take flame sensor out and clean it up with steel wool or wire brush. If you need anymore help just reply back .

    Coleman Presidential II mobile home furnace. When burner lights the blower cycles on and off instead of blowing constant through burner cycle.


    Is this furnace standing pilot or electronic ignition. If standing pilot i would check furnace filter then the thermastat. To test themostat first turn power off to furnace. Take thermostat off wall and take wires labled R & W and connect them together. If you have electronic ignition I would start with cleaning the flame sensor with steel wool or wire brush.If you have and more questions i will be glad to help.
