Question about Heaters

1 Answer

Air conditioning Good morning: My Colemant heater/air blower fan will come on real slow with the air on (haven't tried it with the heat since it's 100 degrees where Im at). Anyway it will run for about 3 minutes, starts making a howling noise and then shut off. After sitting about 5 minutes it will come back on but continue to cycle as I've mentioned. Sounds to me like the bearings are bad and starts to seize up and a relay shuts it off. Are there lubricating spots on the motor ? I know it's a fairly older unit, maybe time for a new motor ? Any people in my area you know that is fair I can contact ? Thanks so much, Ron/Yucca Valley Ca.

The blower motor/circulating fan will not shut off. I have changed the thermostat, did not fix the problem. Removed fan wire from the thermostat, had no effect. The only way to stop the fan is to turn of...


Hello, yes you are are correct. If you remove the green wire from the G terminal at the board and blower keeps running, the relay is stuck and the control board must be replaced.

Not sure if a blower is in this model because feel no air comeing from unit


The blower is/was a $69.00 optional add on feature for that heater. To be quite honest, a blower does little on an Infrared Heater. Infrared, unlike Blue Flame Convection Heaters, doesn't waste energy heating the air. It heats objects (floor, walls, furniture, etc). From that the room air heats up. Simply put, it heats a room like the sun heats the earth. It's really more efficient than a gas convection heater. Rated 99.9% efficient at 15,000 Btu's, it will heat a good sized room easily.

I've selling these heaters for several years and I always try to talk the customer out f wasting their money on a blower. It's simply not needed on an infrared heater.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Heater would not start this morning It tried for a second and then just would not ignite. it was running fine yesterday


Take the top cover off of the unit. Plug it in and look at the ignitor for a bright glow or spark, depending on your ignition source. This should happen before the fan starts. Once the fan starts you should be able to see fuel spraying out of the spray nozzle. If there is no fuel, check the fuel screen, air output from the pump, air filters on the pump, and the correct air pressure from the pump. The nozzle can also be dirty. Check for air leaks on the pump by spraying soapy water on the pump while the blower fan is running.

Fan runs long after room reaches desired temp. heat goes off and fan continues to blow cold air, have a protech 520 thermostat


Is your 'Heater' you are talking about-- A furnace-- with a burner and a blower?

Either way-- We need to adjust a control that determines WHEN THE FAN RUNS--

Most furnaces have a section where the heated air collects, and there has to be a sensor in that chamber, that senses when that air is warm enough to circulate around--- and when the burner shuts off, the air in that area cools down, and the sensor should shut off the fan-

Can you find the Heated air area?-- and can you find a temperature control in that area?-- Can you adjust the control, so that it shuts off the fan when the air temp drops to 100- to 120 degrees F...

Tell us more about the type of furnace/heater we are workig with, so I can better help you-

Coleman eb15b blower fan will not shut off


The most common issue with this symptom and unit is a stuck blower relay.
Once the unit is reached temp and the heat elements stop the blower is to shut down when unit cooled. In your case the switchis stuck resulting in continuous fan.

Here is a manual that is real handy for troubleshooting electric funaces.

Gas heater doesn't stay on longer than 5 minutes.


It sounds to me that your air flow is restricted somewhere. The first thing to check is your air filter. If that gets real dirty your restricted air flow will cause the hi-limit(hi temperature limit switch) in your heat exchanger compartment to over heat and open up your gas valve electrical circuit,thus, shutting off the gas to your burners. After the hi-limit switch cools down the furnace will go back to heating again then it will overheat again(you get the picture?) If it keeps cycling on and off like that the house will never get warm if it is cold outside. If your air filter is reasonably clean(you should be able to see light thru it easily) then the secondary heat exchanger could also be dirty, this is located above the indoor fan housing, you would need to pull the indoor blower assembly out of the furnace and look up above. The secondary heat exchanger looks similar to a radiator will fins. You can use a medium stiff plastic brush to brush the dirt,hair, whatever off of it. Another problem spot would be the cooling evaporator coil (if you have central airconditioning) located most likely above the furnace in the plenum(if your furnace is in a basement). This usually is difficult to access if an access cover wasn't installed when the airconditioning was installed. I would recommend an experience service tech to clean it for you. Also make sure all you supply air registers and return air registers are open . These are the things I would check first. Good luck!!
