That is not normal. It is normal for the sequencer to shut down in an orderly manor however. The heating needs being met the the power is shut down to the sequencer and it shuts down when the bi-metal inside it cools down. If all of the coils and fan were energized the load would be too much so the heating coils are powered up in stages. That does 2 things. Keeps from tripping the breaker and ensures warm air comes out the vents when the fan comes on. You may have a problem with a sticky sequencer.

Electric furnace will not turn off


Your sequencer is stuck. A sequencer uses a small coil to warm up the switch so that it will turn the electrical elements on one at a time instead of all at once. If they all come on at once the amp draw would throw the breaker. It is also desired to have warm air come out of the vents when the fan comes on. So how do they do it? With a sequencer:

A sequencer can have up to 4 stacks depending on the amount of coils are in the heater. Each coil on average has a value of 5000 watts. So what ya want to do is turn on a coil then after 30 seconds another coil then after 30 more seconds the fan and maybe another coil depending on your furnace size.
So in your case what is wrong? The sequencer bimetal disc inside it is jammed in the on position and therefore the heater stays on until you tun the breaker off. Replace the sequencer and party on!

Furnace is blowing cold air.


You must have an electric furnace, gas furnaces only come on when the heater is warm. Electric heaters come on with the use of a sequencer. Your sequencer, tstat, and blower is fine, which means you must have broken heating element. I have a nice pictoral of how to restring one HERE

Short cycling..continually..minimal heat


Is this furnace standing pilot or electronic? if standing pilot turn power off then take t-stat off wall and connect the wires labeled r and c together and see if that keeps furnace working. If electronic check flame sensor you can check flame sensor buy cleaning with steel wool. if that doesn't work then try t-sat.

Electric furnace blows cold air before and after warm air.


It is normal. Your house has to go down a couple more degrees because the heat pump is not working. You can solve this by rewirng you thermostat. Take off the wire that goes to Y and tape off. Then take the wires that are marked w and e or w1 and put the wires to yellow. Do not run ac with it wired like this. If you need more information please post me back

My air condition heater


Auto and on only controls your blower inside the home. More info is needed to determine if you have a gas furnace, electric furnace or a heat pump system.
