On the side of the heat exchanger is a fan Klixon that turns that motor on when the temp exceed 110f on the side of the heater. maybe that thang is going out or your fan motor needs oiling and is cutting out on overload. Next to the fan klixon is usually a limit. Both look the same. The fan klixon will have a marking stamped into the metal such as F-120 the limit will have L-240.

Your Furnace is short cycling...cutting out too soon. I would call for service on this one. If it has a flame sensor and you know where it is, clean or replace the sensor. If there is a air/sail switch, make sure it is free to float/swing.

Please have this checked out by a technician. If there is a crack in the heat exchanger it could do just as you described. The blower blows air into the combustion chamber and blows out the burners.

Our furnace seems to run on idle constantly . we are using more oil but not electric if i tap on the box it stops but starts again a few minutes later??


We need to get a few details cleared up:

Is it the Furnace (Oil burner) that is running, (on idle you called it..)
or is it the FAN that is running?
What are you tapping, that shuts off what?
Is the fan that blows the air around the home shutting off, or the burner?
(When the burner is running, there is a loud roar!-- the fan should be much quieter..)

If it is the fan that is running,-- I might ask, is the air coming from the registers too cold?-- for with the fan running, you are getting all the heat from the oil that was burned. But naturally, you don't want it to be uncomfortable.. So-- you can open the cover on that Fan control switch, and raise the temperature at which the fan turns ON and OFF..

Let us know what you find.

Furnace fires up and heats to desired heat setting and burner shuts down , but the main blower continues to run on.


its the fan control AFC not shutting off , it comes on at temp rise say 150f drops back to 130f with fan on , burner shuts off fan runs untill temp falls to 100f the fan shuts off in this case it keeps running
